You are gone but not forgotten ... Our class of '64 was one of the best ... sadly that happy carefree era came to an end ... VietNam destroyed our world and took the best young men our country had to offer.
My condolences to your family .... I also know what it is like to lose a son .... only I got to have 34 years before my son was taken from me.
Thank you, Curt, for your guts and courage ... so very sad you were taken from this earth .....
