I just learned of Doc's passing. We were together at Da Nang, Okinawa, and El Toro 67-69. We were both enlisted and really had fun. Doc was a character. I finally met Cheryl in Santa Ana in 1969 just before I got out. I had heard him talk about her for 2 years and she was everything he said. Back then Doc always had a coke in his hand. I haven't seen him since 1969 but the world is a little bit less of a good place without Doc here. Rest in Peace Marine!!
