My deepest condolences to everyone associated with "AL". I'm fairly sure that AL and I served together in Phu Bai Vietnam in 1968 and I saw him once again while I was in Fulda, Germany. I am quite sure that he was as good a doctor as he was a pilot.

Sencia, My deepest sympathies on the passing of your father. May the lord watch over him and may he rest in peace.

Dr. Oberholtzer was such a caring Doctor. The time he spent with my daughter Tracy was appreciated so much. We had a very pleasant visit with him at his home the summer before last. Tracy has several nice pictures from that enjoyable day! My daughter-in -law (Jackie as Dr. Gary called her)also sends her condolences along with Tracy and myself. Rest in peace Dr. Gary.
