So sorry to hear,of Rogers passing, he and I both went to Creston High School, and both served in the Navy. Roger helped me out while I was in Vietnam, and could not get Navy Searfarer dungarees.
He sent me about three pairs of them to me. Still liked them better than the green fatigues issued to us.
