Neil Ronald Hans is on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Panel 03E Line 012.

We all got some time off before we sailed for Vietnam. Neil had duty and I was stuck for a ride to the Atlanta Airport, about 100 miles or so. Neil gave me a lift up there without batting an eye.

Neil was conscious, although in shock, when we put him on the Medevac. There were Medical people on board and we all thought Neil was going to make it. He died on the operating table only 1/2 hour after leaving us. Some memories are like they happened 10 minutes ago ... Neil's death was one, and it happened 37 years ago. God Bless Neil and all those we lost over there. It's going to be one hell of a party when we muster again! Boot to Boot!

A memorial from a friend,
