Belter, Rich

Rich, US Army, served in Korea and Vietnam in the late 60’s. Rich and I, along with my two sons had the privilege to be on the September 28, 2019 flight. Rich had never been to Washington to see the Monuments and Memorials dedicated to those who served. He contracted agent orange and died of cancer on July 24, 2020. Because of his condition, we were able to skip, if not, he would not have been able to see the Korean, Vietnam and other Memorials.
