Oh the memories, I have so many fond memories. I only met ( as we call him) Capt Kirk 10 yrs ago. He was my husbands Cpt in Vietnam so I did a Vietnam Reunion. He became one of my hero's!! I fell in love with him and his wife Joann. Then the memories continued. They're the best host at their home. They became such very dear friends. I always knew whatever they'd have our backs......and we for them!! He's going to be missed. R.I.P Capt. Love Tish
