I was researching my family tree and found out that my cousin Manny died four years ago. Ouch.

He was stationed with 3- 10 SFGA at the same time I was with B-2-10 SFGA. You'd never guess we were cousins because he looked so Hawaiian and I look so damn white...

The lesson here my friends is to do everything you can to keep in touch with your family and loved ones.
