You may want to add another to the list: Murphy Eugene Brooks or Eugene Murphy Brooks I don't remember which we always called him Murphy. He passed away in Dec 2013 He was a truck driver for HQ's S-4 not many people will remember him he was with us at Lewis and for six months in VN before returning home

David...I found Murphy's obituary on-line, and it shows him passing on Jan 25, 2013 in Hahira, GA. I will move him on the roster from Located to Deceased and will make the Association aware of his passing.

I got the information from a friend who got it from Murphy's son . It is very very possible I got the wrong information as you said you have his obit so it has to be correct. Knowing my friend i'm lucky he told me at all. :-)

David, good to see you post, even with the news of the death of a guy you served with. Your photos in the HQ group must have been seen by at least a few of the HQ guys. I'm sure ...even without them saying... they appreciate your interest in sharing them. Wish more guys from HQ would take an interest in sharing their photos and letting others they served with know they are still alive and kicking.

I think I know why not many Hq's people don't participate but I'm not up for discussing it here.
I knew Murphy and his family before we enlisted and tried to keep track of him. In later years
he became separated from his family and had nothing to do with them , why , I and his sons don't know.
Like I said he was in VN for about 6 months before coming back home for his mothers death and did not come back
He contacted me many years ago about how to file with the VA seems his records did not show he served in VN.
Now Murphy had a lot of pictures and that's how I got involved with the family again trying to get some of those pictures. Murphy said his wife had the pictures and his wife said she never saw them. One of his sons works for the County Fire Dept that I had worked for and I have a nephew that works there so we stay in touch and that's how I found out about his death even tho it was late.
