Comment[Ed Maleszewski]

I am his half brother. I didn't get to know him very well. We grew up in the same town, but he had a different mother than I did. If you know any of his friends or anything more about how he died, I'd appreciate knowing it. He was a big high school football star and very popular in our community. I heard he opened the gate on a hooch and it blew up. Reads like he got shot. I believe he had a couple of metals - he was brave and honorable. I am proud of him and his service.

Miss you, brother. Would have liked to have known you better.
