Other Comments:
Mike and I grew up in Virden, Illinois as best friends. We joined the Marine Corps on the buddy plan and attended boot camp at MCRD San Deigo. Mike went to school in Pensacola after ITR for radio training. He was a tough Marine and always there for me. He is missed by many. Another chapter in the book old friend. Semper Fi! Sgt. John J.(Joe) Langheim
