I'm sorry I missed your funeral, bro. You're still the only hero I've ever known. I love you.

Mo was my Btry. Commander during my second tour in Vietnam. I dont believe I ever served with anyone who was more respected by his men. I was his CFB most of the time we were together.

I just found out about Mo's passing. I'm so sorry, Kelley. While I only met him a few times, I always liked him. I know this is a great loss, and I pray God will hold you close in the days ahead.
