Marine, Andy, no one has visited you here, but I haven't forgotten. Chesty, David Snethen, 3717 W69th St. Chicago, Il 60629.
I was in his unit when he died. He was a good guy, a great Marine (recon, jump wings), he was the best Marine in the unit. I was on a listening post the night he died and did not find out about it until the next day. I will always wonder. He has not been forgotten. A Fellow Marine.
Jackie, I found out your status through Debra long ago. I've visited the wall in honor of you several times and all the others also. I still can hear your funny laugh. Charles Sellers, 502 Forest Street, Martinsville VA 24112.
