In memory of Gene Menz Vietnam vet my 1st husband



Ms Witte,
My name is Keith Forry. I served in Vietnam with Gene Menz in the latter half of 1970. He was my squad leader and friend. The only sure detail I remember is that he was from Jeannette, Pa. After reading your blog entry it seems likely like we knew the same Gene. The unit we served in was Company C, 1/12 battalion, 1st Cavalry Division. I am very saddened by this news, and the biography you posted. The legacy of the war in Vietnam seems to just go on and on. I am sorry for the unpleasant repercussions that affected you in such an intense way. And, I admire that courage you displayed in your post.
 I'm not sure why I'm writing you. I guess if you could confirm if it's the same Gene and where his resting place is, I would appreciate it.
  May you find peace and happiness in life.
           Thank you, and Blessings on your Journey,
                                       Keith Forry
