Farewell, My Phantom…..until we meet again…….
We are very sorry to hear of Glenn’s death. He was a wonderful man.
We are saddened by this great loss. Condolences
go to Glenn’s family. I met Glenn in Vietnam and
we were on many operations together while serving in the 25th Infantry Division
over there during 1967 and 1968. He had one of
the best platoons in our company, and everyone
really enjoyed working for and with Glenn. I had
the previledge to be stationed at Ft. Monroe, Va
in 1968 and again to visit with Glenn and his
fine family while I was living and stationed in the
area. I was saddened when I received the news
about Glenn. Again, our hearts go out to Thelma
and the family.
