Emil (Pop) Cedeno.

Pop was new to the squad when I took the first two photos. Pop is armed with the M-16. He is a ammo humpier and carries 500 rounds of 7.62 for the M-60 machine gun.

I know Pop is okay, because I received an e-mail from him today! 25 March 2003. Thirty three years of not knowing if he was alive or dead. You could say that's part of the Vietnam experience.

God bless you Pop, and welcome home.
