When I visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial two summers ago I traced Sgt. Precours name from the memorial.  I knew Richard and Robert Precour having either been their Sunday School teacher or Royal Ranger Leader at Port Huron Huron Assembly of God.  Richard paid the ultimate price for our cherished freedoms, may he Rest In Peace. - Donald J.
