Many wonderful memories starting of a young Dick Hughes in the marine Corp. in California. He shared many stories of maneuvers and war games and the characters Dick worked with. Dick would visit no matter where we happened to be he would visit sis and family. Many wonderful and exciting memories.
Will miss you Dick.
