Tribute to Currahee68

Postby Ltrain on Wed May 16, 2018 10:56 pm

So I searched the forums and there aren't any posts by him or about him so I though I would just make one out of respect. He passed away about a year and a half ago.
He was a medic in the Vietnam War. Here are some quotes from him about his experience there:

Here is his obituary:
http://www.ichiban1.org/pdf/Obituary/OliphantObit.pdf

We were in 72 team games together. I just searched through his games and he did seem to like middle ages a lot, even tho we never played it together.
His last comment on a game was after he had been gone for a few days, and it was more of a question than a comment. Which is pretty cool...
He logged in one more time after that to take town saxibot and whambot before passing away exactly a week later.

I just thought it would be nice to give him a footprint here since he spent a lot of time here yet created no footprint himself.
