Jim's Tribute to buddy Ray Burbage

Jim's tribute to a Buddy Ray Burbage

Ray, with his mom

My good buddy Ray was killed in Vietnam February 1968. We were both due to be discharged in the fall of '68. We had planned to take a few months off and tour the US before going back to college.

44 years later I'm making that tour to raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project in memory of Ray. Ray's younger brother Rex may meet us at the end of the ride.

As Jim would say "Whose is that guy!"

  3. I think this was my Dad's friend. I have a letter he sent to Rocky Jurado.
