To my friend Andy I only knew you for a few short months, but what a wonderful summer it was in 1967, with you, me and Bobby Garrett sharing what seemed to be an endless summer. I’ve thought of you often whenever the subject of Vietnam arose, and finally got the chance to see your name on the wall this June 6, 2004, on the 60th anniversary of D-Day. It was one of the most emotional days of my life. Your willing and unselfish service to your country in the rice paddies of Southeast Asia has helped me shape my own beliefs and convictions about war, peace and politics on this fragile planet we all call home. After three and one-half decades, I’m proud to salute you, my fallen comrade and friend. I will never forget you.
