I read the wonderful Sept. 15 article Faces never forgotten . It mentioned that there was no information about my friend, Army SP4 Lee Edward Rosenwasser, who died on Jan. 12, 1966.
I have kept Lee’s picture in my wallet for almost 50 years. After graduating from North Miami Senior High in 1964, Lee joined the Army to serve his country and broaden his auto-mechanic skills to include helicopters. He grew up at his parents’ Block Square Amoco on Northwest Seventh Avenue in North Miami and could fix any car by the time he was 12.
He used to write me from Vietnam about the dangerous details of his missions and made me promise not to tell his parents about them.
Then, in January 1966, we heard the news that his helicopter was missing. A short time later, the bodies of Lee and his crew were recovered.
Lee was buried at Lakeside Memorial Park in Miami. He was only 18.
