I s'pose it's better late than never.

Not stated in the obit, but I believe he was also a ST6 plankowner. The “Patches” nickname is because he had been to more schools than anyone else, thus had more patches than anyone else.

I’ve met him, didn’t know him. He wrote a good book about VN “Pointman.”
