Farewell 36th Engineers - Jack Stringer & Bud Heil

Two Seahorses have passed. One of whom I met at the reunions. Here are the letters from Capt Fallon...


We lost another Seahorse, Jack Stringer from Michigan. He was not a regular correspondent but we regret his loss just the same as each member gets more valuable to us as our numbers thin. May he rest in Peace.




The worst part of my job of secretary, or whatever, is getting letters back. Recently we reported losing one of our fellows whose loss was regrettable even though he was not a regular "reunioner". Somehow though it is much worse when we know somone personally who has been a part of our annual gathering. Bud Heil from Maryland is no longer with us. I just got the word today. On the last letter I had written him that I hoped he could make it again. Alas the letter came back. He and his wife were both regulars until just a couple of years ago. May he rest in peace.


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



Bud Heil is in back row, 2nd from right, next to John Fallon. It was an honor to have known you sir.
