I am Tim's youngest sibling and was 7 years old in August of 1968. I just recently discovered this site and the site with the history of 6th of the 31st. I would love to learn more about Tim's experiences in the service and his buddies' memories of him. I live in Albany, NY, and I can be reached at terryhannigan@nycap.rr.com.

I wish I could provide some information about Tim's friends and experiences but I did not know him very well. I am writing you because I was next to him when we were ambushed and he was hit and killed. I was also one of several men that recovered Tim and since we were both Roman Catholic I said prayers over him.  I am sorry for your loss and wish that there was more I could provide.
