    Edwin Bradley Hennessee (1946-1969)

    Hello, Ed and I were in boot camp together, May-July, 1967. He had the top bunk, I had the bottom. I called him "Hennessee from Tennessee." He was one on the most decent people in our company and we became friends. I lost track of him after we completed basic training. Every now and then I would try an internet search to look him up. Years went by and then I found this site. About broke my heart. I have a photo taken after boot camp graduation while we were waiting for our rides. I would be glad to send it to you if desired. It is a good one.

    I'll plan on posting a tribute to my old friend on my FB page on Memorial Day. I would like to use the information I found here. I hope you have no objection.

    Best to all the Hennessee Family, Ed was taken from you way too early.
