A U.S. Marine, Mike DeMarco, killed in Vietnam in April, 1968, who wanted to be buried with his buddy, Rich Rockenstyre, another Marine and good friend, killed in Vietnam in August, 1967. He sensed his own imminent death, and begged Rich’s mother to allow him to be buried next his buddy when the time came.
They were 2 among a group of about 7 boys, all friends, who went off to the War, 3 of whom died, as did others from Albany.
See my blog post about the other 35 from Albany who died. Not Just Names on the Wall
