I remember Del. He and I arrived to 6th/31st the same day along with Harland Wilkenson who was killed 9/26/69 when I was wounded also. Although I only new Del for a short time he was a great guy. I have tried also to make contact with any relatives of his. I've tried around Jasper,Mn. but no results. I don't know if Benson is a town anymore. I would appreciate anyone who may hace a picture of him from delta co. I was in echo co.
