In 1963 Russell served with Platoon Sergeant Cleve Kendall, nicknamed "the Field Marshall" in Frankfurt, Germany. Russell respected and appreciated him as a great leader. I met him for the first time yesterday and was amazed by his energy at 86 years young! I also got to spend an afternoon with his lovely wife, Gisela. They met in Frankfurt and have been married for 50 years. Today they are retired and have moved from Michigan to their dream home on the water in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. We had a wonderful afternoon catching up on the last 50 years!
