    Thank you Sarge, for the leadership and training you bestowed upon us, that got us through our tour in Vietnam. I know, you have often been in our thoughts over these many years. When I was wounded, you were there to see me off, when I was being loaded onto the helicopter. You had placed your hand on my arm, as say good bye. I remember opening my eyes and saying, l’ll be back.
    As my Sarge and friend, I say, good bye and I’ll see you again someday.

    To the Rohrbough family, my condolences
    Steve DeGidio, Minnesota

    Dear Sarge,
    I know that all of the people in your life have the same respect for you as the men of Charlie Company. You not only brought us back from hell but you gave us the skills to lead our lives and raise our families the same way.
    It makes me sad that we can’t all be there to stand tall for you and give you that final salute.
    The men that will be there have our hearts and thoughts of love and respect to send with you to your final rest. Thank you for giving us all so much.
    God Bless, Sargent Thomas Oscar Radke

    I will miss Calvin more than you know. Every time I presented him in Eastern Star, he was presented as “Rough Buff.” That goes back to a mis-spelling on a program. He always laughed when I presented him as Calvin Rough-buff.” I have missed seeing him at meetings. I know he is in a better place, but his passing leaves a hole in my heart. My prayers and sympathies are with you.
