Jose Luis Quinones Dear Carmen, I am Pat Forster of San Juan Capistrano, California. During the last 25 years I have been organizing the men of the 2nd Battalion, 34th Armor from Vietnam. The Vietnam Veteran Memorial Fund in Washington D. C. is collection photos of the men who died in the war. They will put the pictures in their Education Center at the Memorial Wall in D. C. If you have any pictures of Jose Luis Quinones you may submit them to those people. I will send you the two forms in the mail that you can send the photo in with.
I was in A Company and Jose was in B Company. We were working about 5-10 miles apart on that terrible day. We heard about it the next day. A man named Floyd Dale Ketels was killed with Jose. His brother Don was also in B Company that day and has told us how bad it was to be there when his brother went down. Don usually comes to our reunions every two years. He lives in Colorado.
If you want to put Jose's photo in the collection write me your mailing address and I will send you the forms.

I'm wondering... By chance Carmen are you a relative of both Rubin Medina, and Wilfred Medina- both lived in Kew Gardens, Queens? I was a very close friend to both- and noticed some familiar names. Carla (Forever Pop).
Ginelis Jimenez Hi Carmen, I know that you've left tokens on alot of New York City kids who were murdered. I just thought you'd like to know that I created a memorial page for that little girl, Ginelis Jimenez, who was beaten to death by her father about 2 weeks ago. She's very beautiful.
Also the baby who's mother got run over by a car and the baby was delivered by c-section and died, Sean Michael Sanz, -- a page was created for him. I didn't create it though.
I know that you've visited the memorial of Elisa Izquierdo a couple of times. Just so you know, Elisa has her own Myspace page at www.myspace.com/elisaizquierdo.
Thank you Hi Carmen, So very thoughtful of you to think of me. I am just taking one day at a time and that seems to be working for me. I get so much support from family and dear friends which is a true blessing. Bob was a friend to everyone he knew and they all loved him and miss him so much. The kind words that others have posted warms my heart. Thank you and God Bless you also Love, Danna
