Glad we were able to hold a couple of our reunions close enough for David to attend for the day. He will be missed by his brother infantrymen.

I am honored to have served with Mac in combat in Vietnam. His buddies knew him as the kind of man who would always look out for us and we would do the same for him. Mac was was strong as a bull and faithful to his friends. During our tour of duty, he did most everything an infantryman had to do and did it well: rifleman, M-60 gunner and Radio operator. He lived through some fearsome experiences and distinguished himself with courage. He greatly deserved those medals that were awarded to him.
My most vivid memory of David is when he and I stood chest-deep in a water filled ditch taking cover during an ambush on May 9, 1969. I looked into his face and saw an expression of determination that gave me a shot of confidence that maybe we would get out of that fix after all.
Rest in peace, Mac.
