“Mac”, it was a dark day when we lost you to an enemy booby trap in July of 1967. You were a good friend to many and constantly lifted our spirits with your sense of humor even in the darkest of times.
Should the family Curtis R. Mc Lawhorn read this posting, please know that “Mac” will always be remembered by those who had the pleasure to serve with him.
