Marino: Me acuerdo de ti. Yo estuve en Matecumbe del 29 de Agosto hasta el 4 de Marzo del 62, sin contar un mes y medio en Kendall a finales de año. Yo tengo un website para pedropanes en www.campmatecumbeveterans.com y estoy catalogando poco a poco a todos los PPs que hay. [Asómate cuando tengas un chance] ?Me puedes dar los nombres de los 7 u 8 que mencionastes el nombrete de tus compañeros de St. John? Un millón de gracias. You penned a good story, brother! Manny

Herminio, I love the details you remember. Like Carmen, I also felt like I was taking the trip with you. I can also smell the sulphorous water.

So glad you got together again fairly soon.

You have a good memory! I don't remember anything of my trip to the airport, but reading you story was like going on that car too. I am glad your family found you and you were reunited with them
