Edward was in AN KHE and the central high lands. He was awarded two Bronze Stars one with a V FOR Valor, 5 Purple Hearts, that I have, and my prize letter from Brigadier General Mike Winston, commending my father for actions he took that were above and beyond the call of duty.
When I asked him what that meant he said, it’s just a lot of words honey, It was my duty! ~A Dutiful man he was~ I miss him. “When I die don’t cry,my life was to serve my country,and to honor my brothers. Kaye Wynne — with Ahna Mccabe.
