Joe Crowley (1965)
I had no idea he was bad off, we have sort of lost touch through no fault of Nelsons at all. I got tied up with my own health problems and my wife's also. We all say how different we should have been towards our friends but we keep missing the mark, time and again. We treat ourselves hard and go on doing it for the next friend who passess. Should learn but, I at least, don't. I will miss him although I could not understand a word hardly he said. Had to get his wife to translate for me.?

Nelson will be missed. He was certainly a memorable individual. I am glad I got to spend time with him at various reunions. He had a good memory of our time in Vietnam and helped me remember things forgotten.The last sentence of Joe Crowley's note made me smile and brought back memories of talking with him in Nam and at reunions.
