Relationship: New Friend
I remember being at Holiday Inn FSB (I believe) where Gary and I talked together prior
to us going on Search and Destroy. Many tracks made it through the mind field
including mine but his track hit the mine. I was blown against the firewall in my
track as I was putting on my gear. The explosion was horrific. I had just
gotten to know him

Relationship: His Best Friend In Vietnam
Gary Reed was one of my best friends in Vietnam. We grew up together in a hostile place.
He will always be remembered like a brother. We shared a lot of good times as well
as scary times. My best regards and prayers to this family.

I remember Gary well and have fond memories of him. I have a picture of Gary that
reminds me of what a great guy he was and how much I miss him. I served with K troop
from 8/68 thru 8/69.

Relationship: K Troop Buddy 1969-70
I remember Gary having the California State flag "Bear Republic" set up in a hut
while we were on maintenance stand down. Gary was a warm friendly positive guy. I remember
being present when they carried his covered body on a stretcher from a Huey. I just stood
there stunned until another trooper (Kerry Darden?) pulled me away.
