I received the following in an email this morning from a fellow veteran with whom I served 40 years ago during the Vietnam era.
We still maintain a fairly extensive mailing list of those that served with us and several of the guys have taken it upon themselves to maintain a database of our locations and contact information.
The email I received read as follows:
For all of you who knew Lino Celli I have some bad news. Lino passed away last week at his home in Italy. He had MS for many years and the toll of the long and ugly road called him home. I spent last week with his wife assisting her getting affairs in order. Please pray for Rita and their daughters in these difficult times.
