Comment: The first time I met Ed was at Ft.Eustis Va. helicopter training school, we went to Vietnam in October of 67 and DEROS in October 68. I loved Ed like a brother and would always have a way to make you laugh. Loved his humor on emails, and loved meeting him and his lovely wife Barb at the reunions I attended. May he Rest In Peace God bless you Ed, your friend Mars Sanford, “CLEAR UP LEFT”??????????????????

Comment: Ed kept my six covered on many flights in Nam. I feel he is still covering my six.
I enjoyed visiting with Ed and his wife Barb at our reunions. Always had a great smile and a cheerful attitude.
Rear in peace my Brother.
