Dean Triffett 1098th TC

I have learned that Dean’s wife Susan passed away this afternoon. I had talked to Dean after Christmas and he told me that she had just had bypass surgery. Dean is also battling stomach cancer and taking Dialysis 3 times a week. Dean needs our prayers. RIP Sue

Ho Chi Minh Trail

Got this in a email from Wayne Chalker. Lots of pictures and things along the trail after the war. Mostly Laos, but good.
