PFC Robert Ramsey / Capt. Larry Tasby
Rasmey died at Quang Nam on Feb. 11, 1969. I am a local historian in Stuttgart, Arkansas who has found his "unmarked" grave. Pictures are posted under my profile. I would love to hear from ANYONE who served with him, as the process to work with family members to get military marker with community support will surely bring up some raw feelings. I have a posting from Tasby that is especially kind. My direct email is email@example.com.

His mother had already passed away, and his father died about a year later. The family listed in obituary all seem to be half-siblings. I've noticed under current rules for markers that the "stone setting" fee must be paid out-of-pocket and may have been too much for this broken family to pursue. I don't see that the parents' graves are marked either.

Yours In Christ,

Did anybody serve with Edward L. Gardiner? He was my father and served with 3rd Force Recon in Vietnam. I think it was 65-66/67. I know his callsign was Cat Eyes and his close friends know him as Lloyd. Anything about the man that Inspired me to become a Marine would be great
