Willoughby is on the right
I served with Willoughby at Ft. Knox during scout training and we shipped over Viet Nam together. His MOS was 11D10 but after he arrived in country he ended up on the mortar track. He loved being a mortar man, took his job seriously and became very good at what he did. He was always fun to be around, always had a smile and loved practical jokes. As I understand it he died in an auto accident soon after he arrived back in the states.
God bless Willoughby.
