Personal Narrative:
I started with Ted in 1965 at Parris Island, somehow pretty much stayed together. From what I remember, Ted was a CrewChief and a hell of a good Marine. We flew together a few times and he really covered our ass...Long and short is he extended about 05/67, went home, came back and while working out of Dong Ha was listed officially as "accidental self-destruction". He was a good buddy and sure could play the bass guitar... Miss Him.
