Kenneth was my cousin on my mother's side of the family, I remember him as kids growing up as a real quiet, kind and a gentle person. He was the oldest and always looking out for his younger brothers and sisters. I am sure he was like that in Vietnam too.
He was truly loved by all his family and will be missed dearly but he will never be forgotten. God Bless you, "My Fallen Comrade". I just know he was looking out for me when I was in Vietnam, I could hear him talking to me on occasion, telling me to watch out or get down. Thank you very much, Kenneth, for the sacrifice you gave in Vietnam along with so many others.
Paying tribute to this young hero,
"They shall not grow old,
From the sister of another young hero who made the Ultimate Sacrifice in Vietnam. KIA-1967
