Our thoughts and prayers to all of Ken's family.  I knew Ken in Vietnam 1967/68 with A Company 8th Cav, !st Air Cav Div. .  I was the 3rd Plt. Ldr. and he was my Medic.   I will always remember our relationship as I have thought about him often.  I only heard about his death today and I wanted to send this belated note because he was special in my life.     .
