So very sorry to hear of Les passing away. He and my husband were stationed at Fort Carson together and also went to Korea together. While at Carson Les spent a lot of time at our apartment and enjoyed more than a few home cooked meals with us. I am glad that he and my husband were able to connect again a few yrs ago. Les was a good guy and a good friend.
