It is with a sad heart that I report that one of our own (Raymond Barrio) has passed away. Ray died Nov. 24th after suffering a massive heart attack. I was disappointed that I was not able to get to his service but Steve Lockard was there to represent his Brothers. Thanks Steve for being there. Our condolences of course go to his wife, (Elaine) and the rest of his family. Ray was and will always be a true Brother and will be greatly missed especially by those of 2nd Bde. Lrrps who served with him.
K-Co has made a donation in his honor to the Disabled American Veterans.
