Comments: I want to take this opportunity to thank Gordon Swenson, Ed Nored, and Don Ketcham for all their assistance in helping me gather information on - and helping me to understand - exactly what my friend, the medic "Doc" Richard Quinn, experienced, the last day of his life, 7-12-70, as he attempted to save another medic, "Doc" Thomas Kloss. Their insight and compassion has been most appreciated. As I put this Memorial album on Richard's life together, I realize how lucky I am that 47 years after that firefight, there are still witnesses who are willing and able to answer my endless number of questions. Reliving that day, has got to be painful - all the more reason for me to send them my most heartfelt gratitude. Fern Malkine-Falvey
Admin reply: Thank you Fern! We sincerely appreciate all you are doing in the memory of Doc Quinn!

Comments: I was with Delta Co. 1/8 Air Cav. And was on LZ White in March of 1969 when we were attacked by zappers. Lost my best friend Donald (Skeeter) Johnston when he threw himself on a satchel charge to save his fellow bunker friends. God Bless You Skeeter. You are sadly missed.
