I am the daughter of Gary Palmer and was wondering if anyone had know exactly what happened to my father. All I know is that he was killed by someone he knew, returning back from guard duty one morning.
I REMEMBER PALMER FROM REACTIONARY PLATOON I WAS ASSIGNED TO WHEN I WAS WITH H&MS-16. WE WERE ASSIGNED 30 OR 60 DAYS GUARD DUTY OR WHATEVER IT WAS. I REMEMBER SPEAKING TO HIM ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS. I DID NOT KNOW HIM VERY WELL. I THINK HE HAD JUST BEEN IN COUNTRY FOR A WHILE. I DO REMEMBER HIM FROM HIS PICTURE.Submitted by: L/CPL R. SAN MIGUEL, SPOKE WITH 0CCASIONALLY, 20050418
