I was blessed to participate as crew chief of the IASAR Huey that flew over his burial site on Saturday. I too am a Vietnam veteran. I saluted you sir as we flew over. God Bless you and your family. So glad you finally came home.
We were in the same graduating class in high school and had a few dates. Remember him as such a kind and gentle soul. Happy his remains were found and brought home to give your family closure. RIP Alan and sincere condolences to the Bardach family. Julie Deck
