RIP = Henry Papa 36th Combat Engineer

...I just heard that Henry Papa died. He was a great soldier in my platoon and I remember him very well; he was ten years older than I and once when struggling through the snow in Alsace he said,"Can't you slow down a little, Lieutenant? I have a daughter older than you." Maybe it was just a little exaggerated.


He is joining a very good group and deserves the rest. May he rest in peace.



36 Engineers are rugged......John Fallon II. Capt. USA Ret.
