If anyone reads this please contact me. My cousin Andy Samans was among those who died with Arthur and the others from their unit. I wanted to know if anyone has pictures ... maybe of the group of the guys in Arthur's unit? Andy's mom is still alive at age 93 and I know she'd like to hear stories you might have of Andy from loved ones who were with him. Today is May 27, 2007. I have tried emailing those whose emails I saw on the www site but they were returned.
From Andy Saman's first cousin (our dad's were brothers!),
I know these young men well (Jordan, Beach, Crozier, Erwin) because I was one of them. We were a rowdy family who cared for each other.
I thank the Lord for the opportunity to know each one of them personally. It was 40 years ago today. Some memories are fading now but I still remember.
