Oscar and Ann were with the 86th MP (CI) Det,Ft Benning, GA while I was assigned there (1953 - 1957) and Oscar was a pleasure to work and socialize with. He was one of a great group of investigators which included Don Martin, Art Freeman, Ken Hayse, E.Z.Whitehead. Jim Haymond and others. We worked and played hard. RIP Oscar. You earned it. Elmer and Dottie Miller
