Pete, I think of you almost every day. Norm

From a friend,

I went through Basic training and AIT and dog school with Peter. We were stationed close together in Viet Nam and frequently ran into each other. I visited him at the 42nd several times. I was stationed with the 47th. I never will forget after all these years the way I felt when I heard a handler from the 42nd had been killed. I got someone to get a hold of the LT there and found out it was Peter. I always wanted to contact his family and tell them what a wonderful friend and person he was, but I didn't really know how to at that time and then the next thing you know 37 years has passed.

I think the first time I met Peter in basic we were pulling KP together. It was the only time I can remember having steaks in basic training and Peter and I were hiding in the back part of the mess hall where we were out of sight of the mess Sergeant. We wolfed down steaks as fast as we could - I think we each ate 4 of them in what seemed like 2 minutes. I can still see his face and his smile and after all these years I can still hear his voice. I can't remember what my friends from high school who were killed in Viet Nam looked like without looking at a picture, but I remember Peter. I think of him frequently. I can't think of Peter without thinking what the world and his family were deprived of with the loss of Peter. You were never forgotten, Peter.
