I was with Doc Brown, Ken on many operations. He was a dedicated professional. He always put the care for others above his own safety. I stayed back to help with the wounded on a few occasions. He would tell me what to do. We always joked with each other. I always complained about our crappy medic. He laughed and we all knew I was kidding. The night he was killed I was in the same room that was hit by the mortar. Last time we spoke I saw him sitting outside the sleeping area in the base camp (Vin Kim). I said something like "Nice work, John Wayne"....He said those two words we all often said and we both laughed. About a year ago, or two, I spoke with his wife. She has remarried and his daughter is middle aged. I think about him often. He was a good man.
