We last saw Mouse fernandez in March of 69 pulling bridge guard E/O Dongtam w/o ambush Ally he was singing to the villigers and kids and rocking out with a guitar.

Rest in peace HERMANO (BRO). You won't be forgotten!

You called one of our guys from our Platoon SHEEP that was sp/4 Simpson Huston.

I Luis Reyna was in Vietnam with Santana, I was assigned to Co. B and we will see each other occasionally.  We will talk about San Antonio and drank few beers, Even-though it has been long time I always remember you in my prayers. Thanks for the Ultimate sacrifice bro.
