From a friend,
My best friend from the block, I think of him all the time. He saw me go to war, and even though he was just 17 he felt he had to follow. I had been a loner and had no education - the Army was my way to get some guidance and I heard the communists had to be stopped. For Bill, he finished school, he was handsome - he would have been the Tom Cruise we see today. He has been in my thoughts for years. If you knew him you liked him. If anyone from the block sees this, this is "Casper" (Dave Duncan).
