Corky... I could fill a journal of our exploits while at the 317th. Great friend, great roommate, great teammate and just all around one of the best guys I've had the honor of serving with. From getting Jeeps air born (and instantly disintegrating all 4 U-Joints) and booby trapping the room with CS gas pellets, to simply sharing a beer and talking through life... Corky will be missed. The world was a much better place with him in it. Prayers and condolences to his family.
