Having read the book "We Were Soldiers Once and Young," I was aware of the heroism exhibited by Rick. As I was watching the fund-raiser, I was listening to Robin Williams speak of a hero in Vietnam, and then he said Rick's name. I'm sick that this had to happen. I hope Rick's heroism in Vietnam and his life story get full coverage so we all know the caliber of people lost in this senseless attack.

The world has lost a great leader, a family has lost a great father. I was lucky to have met him once. God bless him and his family.
