This past November 2004 the niece of Hugh Meece, Dana and Mike Stewart, contacted me via e-mail to see if I knew Hugh as we were in the same Unit at the same time in Vietnam (Cu Chi). I knew Hugh was one of our first KIA's but I did not know him personally. But I told his niece that I might know some guys that served with her Uncle Hugh. I then called Bob Tegelman and Herb Beasley and they both knew him. But Beasley knew him the best as they were both living in the same hooch in Vietnam. We were able to tell the family all about Hugh and how he was killed.

He was a doorgunner on one of the helicopters in D Troop, and that is how he was KIA. Hugh's older brother (Dana's Dad) is still alive and she and her husband Mike wanted to make something for her Dad about Hugh for this Christmas. We were able to fill in all the blanks of how he was KIA, and where he was at.

The family sent both Dwane and I a CD of pictures of Hugh in Vietnam, and also in e-mail pictures of his tombstone where he is laid to rest in Kentucky.
May the Good Lord always hold Hugh in the palm of His Hands.
God Bless you, Hugh, and rest in Peace, Bro.

Your family still remembers
Even though I never got to meet you, you made a difference in my life by being my Dad's brother. My Dad and Mom loved you very much and still miss you. Your niece
