To Ed's Family and Friends...I'm one of those that he and Bruce (Snake)carried out of LZ Xray on 15 Nov. 65. I was listed in the book, "We Were Soldiers Once and Young" as triaged, unlikely to survive. I went on to become a fixed wing and helicopter pilot, like Ed. I've lived to see my children grown and grandchildren as well. Many Thanks, To Tall for 40+ additional years of life. You'll be missed.
Garry Owen, Sir!
