    Dear Tricia:
    I was sorry to hear of the passing of Rick. I only knew Rick a very short period of time in Vietnam. We served together there.
    I joined Hotel company on November 20, 1968 and you know the significance of that date. I’d only just met him when he was wounded that day. I’ve thought of him many times in the intervening years, and was delighted to meet both of you at the Alexandria, VA and subsequent reunions. We truly were a band of brothers.
    God Bless and Semper Fi,
    1st Lt. Jim Harvey
