George and I "enjoyed" a year together at Foxhole U followed by a tour together in Second Battalion where we were company commanders and neighbors in PMQ's. A good friend, and all round nice guy, it was a pleasure to know and be associated with George over the years. Thanks for the memories as we came of age as soldiers. RIP.

We learned of your Dad's passing yesterday. We are shocked and saddened with your loss. We go way back to the the early 60's. In recent times we had lunch together with Len Lee and other classmates. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.
