Edgardo Querijero Abesamis

West Point, 1965

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Chuck Nichols on March 22, 2016:

Ed and I were stationed in Tay Ninh together in 1969. Ed was with the Philippine Civic Action Group and I commanded A Company, 65th Engineers. We had a very symbiotic relationship. I was able to get just about any kind of building materials because I had a letter from the CG directing my company to construction 20' to 40' tall observations towers to place at fire support bases. Ed had what seemed like an endless supply of San Miguel beer so the deal was made. Ed got all the building materials he needed for his nation building operations and I got all the beer I could drink along with the loan of some construction equipment not organic to my TOE. I lost contact with Ed after Viet Nam and truly miss his company and the tall stories we told each other.
Be thou at peace, brother Ed.
