    Oscar was my good friend and he was with me when I was WIA on 6/27/67, he helped carry me on board to the Medivac chopper and he was part of the squad that went to our aid when it crashed shortly after take-off.

    August of 2011 I came across this web-site and met the author Nik Dunbar and other contacts he gave me, after much research in his part I made contact with the family of Oscar in Dallas, Tx, on Sept 08, 2011 the 44th anniversary of his death I met his brother, sister and niece at Oscars burial site. Thus I made good my personal promise that I would never forget him. No words can express the feeling I had the minute I stood in front of his grave and saluted my dear friend. Many thanks to Nik, he is a super person and remains my friend for life  Semper Fi!
