SFC Noel R.
Southwick was formerly in the US Navy for several years before joining
the Army and the Military Police Corps. I was stationed with Noel in
Germany in 1962-63. I later ran into Noel in Vietnam during 1968 and
spoke with him briefly during the TET Offensive. Noel was a dedicated
soldier who loved his family and his country. I'm glad I became his
friend and I enjoyed serving with him.
