Farrell Vice

Farrell was my 1st cousin. His father (Chester Vice) and my mother (Elita Vice Soirez) were brother & sister. My father (Raymond Soirez) was Farrell's godfather. I just finished watching the movie "Hamburger Hill" and it got me to think of Farrell. The fight for Hamburger Hill, a battle in Vietnam which took place between May 10-20, 1969 was the place I thought all this time was were Farrell had died but obviously he died somewhere else since he died 4 days after that battle took place. I personally don't remember Farrell all that much, I was 12 when he died but I've got a brother (Terry Soirez) who remembers him well. I do remember his funeral. He had a glass partition above his body. My Dad cried when Farrell died. I'm sure he was sad because Farrell was his godfather but also because my Dad had served in WWII and the Korean War and came back to live the rest of his life in Louisiana and he died in 2003.
