I have known Jessie for about 3 years through his email/facebook postings through a mutual friend Boe O'Leary. We all worked the same part of the world back in 67-69 ... Chu Lai Vietnam. The work Jessie did was tough and very important. I did not know his work while I was stationed on gunboats at the time. But now today I understand more about the day to day operations then because of his bravery in the jungles and villages of Vietnam. God Bless you Jessie. Bravo Zulu.

Myself and Jessie,aka "Cow Boy", was his call sign,fought a war in Vietnam,that many to this day do not hear of of heard of much id at all.our work was fighting and living with the PRU's,and teaching and protecting them in the villages,where they lived.For many years Jessie thought I was dead,I was struck by lightening in May of 69,and shipped home,to a hospital,all Jessie was told was "I was Gone",he thought I was dead,Killed ,and I was told that all the men who were with me at the time of the incident were killed also,for over 35 years we thought this,until one day ,because of the internet,we found each other and were shocked,surprised,and so happy we were told wrong.Why I do not know to this day.But Jessie and I were Brother's ,for in war,one can bond so close and I haven't seen or felt this way since towards another Male friend.I will miss you Cow Boy..Wild Child still running Wild,and will reach ya soon,say hi to the rest of the guys for me..
