I remember I.W. from my time at Ft Hood Field Office, working OJT while waiting for my CID application to be approved. He was a friend and one of the several great mentors that office had to offer me and others. Condolences to his family.

Mop (Vietnamese nickname) was my first MP platoon sergeant 1971 in Vietnam. Later that year we were both MPI in Det E, 8th (MP) Group (CI) in Qui Nhon. Learned more from that man than anyone else in my entire career.

I was a Military Police Investigator at Ft Hood, (1986-1987)and IW was the evidence custodian. He would come in the duty room, (jokingly) with his hangmans noose, letting us know he was ready to take evidence, and shake the noose, if we messed up the evidence voucher. He was an outstanding person
