Gary was a great dude! We met at Fort Lewis in 1989 and deployed together to desert storm. He left for Germany and soon after so did I and we end up in the same unit and shop, S&R Bravo Company 501st FSB 1AD,we spent many nights out in the field, playing cards and drinking beer and beam. You were a great dude Gary Gambill!
