I am saddened to hear of my Friend Kenneth. We both were stationed at Ft Lewis Washington. During the Vietnam War. We had some great times together. I did not know that Kenneth was at Ft Lewis. I was walking one day and a truck came by . Kenneth was driving the truck. He had on his cook uniform. I yelled at him but, he did not hear me. Got his address looked him up. I will never forget those times spent with Kenneth. God Bless all the Family. You are in our prayers 🙏🙏’s Tommy & Brenda Ferguson Culleoka Tennessee.!!
