    I worked for Charlie at the DAO logistics branch for several years until the last day of South Vietnam. Charlie was a great boss. We all loved him very much. I also knew Khanh, his wife. If you know where she is, please say “hi” to her for me. Very sad to hear that Charlie passed away. Please accept my sincere condolences. Thank you.
