More detail on this person: Heart attach in 1985. Buried in Veteran Cemetery in Chattanooga, TN.I first met Mike in basic training at Fort Polk, LA in July, 1969. We suffered through flight school together and flew together in Viet Nam. We flew slicks with Bravo Company, 227th Assault Helicopter Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division. Fish was a good friend and always had something going on, a practical joke or just being off the wall to shake things up. A favorite gag of his was his "relief map of Mars" (not for polite company). I'm really sorry to find his name here. Rest in Peace, buddy.
