Rita Goben (Lake) remembers Lloyd...

I read an article in the Free Press newspaper published in Hillsboro,
Kansas about this site.  Since my uncle was killed in Vietnam, I thought
I'd go see if he was listed on the site.  To my surprise his senior picture
was there.  I was a senior in high school when we learned about Lloyd's
death.  The family was devastated.  Lloyd was the first young man from
Salina to be killed.  I will never forget the day we buried him, it was so
very cold.  It's hard to believe it has been 43 years.  Lloyd was a great
uncle, actually more like a brother since we were close in age.  I remember
when he left Salina in September, 1965 to leave on his journey to Vietnam, it
was scary.  A lot of my friends from the school I attended also went to
Vietnam.  They were lucky enough to come home.  Thank you for creating
such a wonderful web site!
