Kenneth James Webb

1970

On Friday, June 23, 2000 one of our own, Ken Webb, was taken from us. For all of us who knew Ken, this is a specially tragic event as he was only 50 years old. While I had just recently met Ken just a few weeks ago at the reunion of the 101st Airborne Association at Ft Campbell, KY, I felt that I have known him for a long time. Our communications via the emails of our Lancer net have personally meant a lot. Ken always had the writing skills to tell even the most sad of stories with a bit of humor that would make reading easier.

If I may speak for all of Ken's Lancer and Redskin brothers, our lives and memories have only improved for having known you. God Bless and our prayers and thoughts go out to your family in their time of sorrow.

    Steve Crimm and I presented the memorial plaque to Sandy and Will Webb on Sunday, 10/15/00 at 10:30AM in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  The 3397th Garrison Support Unit held a formation in front of the US Army Reserve Center and Colonel Atkins, CO, called us forward to present the memorial plaque.  The words on the plaque were read aloud by Major Schrow from the 3397th -- as we presented it to Sandy and Will Webb.  Please don't forget to mention that the tribute was written by Bill Walker, Lancer-17 -- just a reminder.
 
    I will be getting our photographs developed soon.  I will scan and forward them to you sometime this week. 
 
    It was a nice ceremony and very much appreciated by Sandy and Will.
 
Best regards,
Paul
