I would like to contact the widow or other family of Harold Cummings Jr.

I was with Harry when he was taken in ambush and must fulfill his last request.

Harry,

Although I didn't know you in life, I'll never forget you.
I was driving the lead jeep just behind you when we were ambushed.
I just found out your name a few days ago but have carried you with me for 35 years.
Sorry I didn't know sooner.

Poncho,
If you read this, please contact me. I was lead jeep driver for the 57th that morning.
