Hunted with him for quit a few years when I moved out to Spokane in 1992 after Desert Storm.

RIP Keith.....
He and 7 other guys were the only ones out of a company of 129 men to make it out alive on Okinawa .

He still had so much shrapnel he couldn't go through a metal detector.

My condolences.

The loss of a soldier always saddens me. This is only
compounded by those known to me.
Nick, I now share a piece of your loss of this fine man
who gave so much. He'll be standing formation with the
angels now.

Another of the greatest generation gone. The world is a poorer place for it. RIP, hero.

His obituary leads me to believe he will receive a hero’s welcome
where he is headed.

You were lucky to have known him and we were lucky to have him.

My father, still alive at 93, is also a veteran of World War II, Korea and Vietnam.

When he went to have his truck license renewed, the lady told him he could have a sticker affixed to his license place identifying him as a veteran of World War II, Korea or Vietnam, but not all three.

He said he chose Vietnam because all the World War II guys were "old" and he didn't feel "old". He also didn't want Korea since nobody today remembers it, so he chose to be recognized as a Vietnam War veteran.

My condolences, Senior Chief.

Still, it is a lesson to us all - if you're going to be in this life, you should live it.

I had no relatives or friends that were in WW11, my brother and cousin were both in Korea, at the Chosin Reservoir.

The were different people when they came back home.

My "little brother", "my most handsome horse" and I were out for a stroll in the national forest one day when we found a plaque, on a tree. Obviously a memorial for some one who used to hunt that area.

A hunting companion, memorialized by his friends in a place that had real meaning for him. When I am in that area. I stop for a moment to reflect..
