  • Holbert (Eddie) EARLs 69-70 HML-167

    Got word yesterday here on Pop a smoke that Ed had past away. Just was wondering if any of You Guys might have know him or when He did past away? I had not been able to catch up with him in many years,so If some of you Know any more I'd like to hear from you.
    Myself I had known him and his family for some good 3-4 years in the Corp. He was in 264 at New River before going to Nam. Thanks JJ
