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.
