Comment: Boyce was the old man of the guns. He was an all around good guy and a great pilot. He kept many of us straight with his wisdom and attention to detail. I don't think Boyce ever slept while in Viet Nam. I remember many times waking up and seeing Boyce sitting on the side of his bed smoking a cigarette. I had the privilege of continuing to serve with Boyce in Mineral Wells after Viet Nam and being his neighbor. His daughter, "Pinkie" was the best baby sitter we ever had and she was only 11 years old at the time.

May you rest in peace Boyce.
