Melvin Alton Tinker

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Even now, 42 years later, I tear up when I think of Terry and Mel Tinker. They were great friends back in Wuerzburg. I was babysitting the child of the couple with whom they were driving to Bern, Switzerland, and then had to bear the news that all four were not coming back. My sister and I studied dance with Terry. We loved to visit them as often as possible. I would love to have a picture to remember them by. Please write to me if that were a possibility.
