Rich's Page

In November 2001, our family had the rare opportunity to meet with a Marine that served with Davis. Rich gave us all an amazing gift that day. Thinking of Davis so far away from home is alot less sad knowing he was with men like Rich.

While Rich was on Hill 25, his girlfriend Kathy would send him food from home and music recorded on reel-to-reel tape. Rich shared these treats with the guys on the hill. Kathy still has a letter from Davis thanking her for all those goodies.
After they were done listening to the music
, Rich and the guys would record voice messages for Kathy and send them back to her.

Rich and Kathleen were married for over 43 years
. She kept those tapes, and has made it possible for two families to hear the voices of those long silent. She is missed and will never be forgotten.
