Found a bunch of 35mm’s I didn’t
know I had, here a great shot of
Kevin Mclaughlin looks like pic was
taken during a stand down. Geez…
He looks like the “All American” kid.
Been trying to locate him without any
luck, I remember how pissed he was
at his recruiter who screwed him into
a three year hitch, he was always
bitchin about that. Hope he survived
the beer bash in Germany.
