    I served in Viet Nam with Billy Joe Foster. Not sure if this is the same person but I have attempted to locate him since retirning from the war. All he ever talked about was life in Kentucky.
    If this is the same person I can only say that he was a great friend and a good patrol buddy. We were together every day, good and bad. He will be missed.
