REMEMBEREDby a cousin.
E-mail address is not available.
Memories of you have been with me since October 2, 1968 as we took over the radio relay. You didn't have to be there but you were where you wanted to be, with your men. The explosion, the dust and you, laboring to breathe, I couldn't do anything for you then as you lay there, but maybe now I can.
Hopefully someone can relay my memories to your wife.
The Most Important Memory that I have been unable to share,
Your Last Words, "I can't breathe; JAN, I LOVE YOU..."
Bud was a dedicated Marine officer and a fine person. It was my pleasure to know him. May he rest in peace with God.
From a friend and fellow Marine,
