Frank, I met your LRRP., teammates
Frank....I took my family, to a reunion in Ohio, for the 75th, Ranger, K, Company. I met your teammates, Larry and Jim, and alot of others, who knew you. I learned so very much, about you and how very couragous, you and your fellow LRRP's, were. They made me feel, like one, of them. You, would be proud, to know, that after all this time, your memory is, with so many people, who knew you and loved you. Only me and John, are left, Mom, Dad and Gary, are gone now. We, still remember you, everyday.

WE HAVE, ALL MISSED YOU, FRANK
Frank was, the oldest brother, to Gary, me and John. We were all born, two, years apart, so I was only 16, when he was, Killed in Action. The family, never fully recovered, from his loss. Our Mother, Ilsa, faithfully tended, to his final resting place, until she passed, in 1998, and Dad, well Dad never, was the same. Being the oldest, he always had to blaze the trail, for his younger brothers to follow. If we got in trouble, in the neighborhood, Frank made sure, it was, taken care of. The short time he was with us, will always be, remembered. He, was our HERO. In December, 1969, he was awarded the Silver Star, 2, Bronze, Star Medals and 2, Purple Hearts. Frank, we will never, forget you.
