I got a call from Lou Damiano today, an email from Bill Lamon's cousin, a note on Facebook from Joe Schroeder's brother Fred, and a couple of notes from Tom Crites. All of us in 2/9 know what it is like to miss lost brothers, but this day is a day for those of us who survived that day to remember and honor those who didn't make it. I miss them every day!
