Glen was a friend of mine. I was stationed aboard NAVASOTA until Sept 1965. We worked in the same shop. In fact he was the #2 man in charge and Chief Ben Sparenburg was in charge. Dan McConnaughhay also worked in the shipfitter shop. Dan was the closest friend I ever had in the Navy.

All 3 of these fine men were killed 5 months after I was transferred, doing the job I would have been doing. This all happened on my 23rd birthday. Over the years I have stayed in close contact with Dan's family. His kids have grown up to be fine adults. I have never known finer men, may they rest in peace...
