Steve, you will probably have a better chance of finding Bob Young on Facebook. Here is the link to his profile....https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001967662630&fref=nf

I think he just had some surgery of some type.

   Hello Steve, how are you doing. I was on the Rock during your time there. I've been trying to remember the name of the Lt. that was on the jeep headed to Wieden when they over turned. The driver, private Wolfe died of his injuries. Can you recall the name of the Lt?

   Hope you find this site enjoyable. There are plenty, seems many more from the Rock than anyother. Hope you can find some of your friends. Wishing you well. From Mexico, Ray g.
