Back in the fall I received a message from Wes Zanone. He had found my name in the Americal Division locator on the www. We served in Charley Company for 4 months together, yet did not know each other. Even so, the ensuing messages via e mail brought back the memories of friends and places.

We arranged to meet in Corbin Ky. It was a beautiful Indian summer day. Neither of us had talked with a fellow infantryman for many many years. We made up for lost time that day.

Things that had been long forgotten became familiar once more.
