BW-061:This is Kenneth Holmes a really super guy. He hung with Joseph Marsh. I remember giving my seat up one morning on perimeter patrol to a Engineer Captain that wanted to get the opportunity to fly; long story short, they took a random round that day while completing the patrol; the round found unlikely and deadly mark - the Captain was hit in the groin and bled out before they could get back to base. When Holmes saw me later that day back at the hootch, he hugged me and cried, thinking that it was I that had taken the round and died. Walt Baum was the pilot.
