    I met Fred when we were both assigned to Iceland in the early 1960s. What a strange combination – a young kid from Upstate New York and a Cajun. We hit it off and became the best of friends. After the Air Force, we drifted apart and lost contact until one day in 2000 I received a call from Fred. We renewed our old friendship and stayed in contact. It was always good to see Fred again during our Iceland Radar Sites reunions. Fred was a good friend and I will miss him.
