Steve and I were close friends years ago. He stood in my wedding almost 50 years ago. Both of us were Veterans and we worked together for a while after we left the Military. I was fortunate to bypass the war that was raging in Viet Nam back in those days. Steve, however, was not so lucky. He served as a helicopter door gunner.....right in the middle of a very ugly war. He experienced the worst of the worst during his service to the United States. That said, one could not have expected the ugly experience as he and I were greeted at airports, etc. upon our return home.

We talked for hours and hours about his experience in Vietnam....and I know that his "memories" from back then would haunt him for many years. Nobody even knew anything about PTSD back then....but I saw first hand how it affected him. Steve didn't receive a hero's welcome home back in 1969 or so....but he was indeed a hero! Steve and I were both against the Vietnam war. In my eyes, Steve was a true American hero. Regardless of his feelings about the war, he stepped up to the plate anyway.

We lost track of each other over the years but had recently reconnected and communicated often on line and by phone. I had the great honor of talking to him and messaging him during his last days. I got to tell him that I loved him like a brother and I always will. I lost a wonderful friend.....and I will always remember him.

My heartfelt condolences go out to his family.
