Calvin, it's been forty years since boot camp, Platoon 2241, MCRD San Diego, Oct 1966. I think of the good days we shared in boot camp and was saddened to discover your demise. May your big smile always continue to shine down upon us for eternity. God Bless, my brother, you will never be forgotten.
