Ken Green was one of the nicest people I ever knew. He was always ready to help a friend. He died two days after the action for which he was awarded the Silver Star. He was killed while trying to remove one of his Tiger Force buddies from the line of fire. Ken was fearless and accounted for a large number of enemy dead both before, and after he joined the Tiger Force. His bravery under fire inspired others to perform at their very best.

Ken died quickly from his wounds. I was glad he didn’t suffer in prolonged agony because he didn’t deserve to go that way. Ken was a true Hero and I will always cherish his memory. I was honored to have served with him. Rest in Peace Dear Friend!
