My brother, Larry Dart, was a great guy and my best friend. We grew up on the southwest side of Chicago in the neighborhood of Mount Greenwood. Larry and I loved music and he was involved in it all his life. He was also a sports fan who was an excellent baseball player. He played first base at Morgan Park High School. He was a very good student, and a 1967 graduate of Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. He was attending Drake Law School when he was drafted. He enlisted hoping to get a better job than infantry. He got Combat Engineer. While in-country he was very popular with his fellow soldiers and worked hard at his job. Two weeks before he was mortally wounded he won the Silver Star for rescuing several men from a ATC that hit a mine and burned. He was injured while clearing a road of a barrel that was booby trapped. He died a week later at Long Bien Hospital.

He left behind a beautiful wife, Bette Gae, and many friends. I was his only brother and I miss him more every year. Because every year my children and grand children grow older and more wonderful and I wish they could have been blessed by the company of their Uncle Larry. I do what I can to keep his memory alive in them.
From his brother,
Jim Dart

27 May 2003

To my brothers in arms, and especially my friends HN Joe F. Kelley HM3 William Broad , and Cpl Bobbie Ratliff . I think of you all even though it has been 38 years. I remember seeing Joe and Bill in body bags on that fateful day on Operation DeSoto, my heart went numb and has been so since that day. Only the death of Mills Miller created a greater void in my life. I was in the Philippines when I read of the death of Bobbie, and again I wondered why I made it out alive. I wish you all were here with me, to laugh and retell the stories of by-gone days. I will join you someday, keep a rubber lady on a cot for me...
Doc Riddle





14 Mar 2004

Here it is another year on the 16th. I shall remember you forever and that day holds a special meaning to me. I spoke to JJ last week, he kept your dog tag, which he returned to your family. Just ambling ... Miss you. Doc



30 May 2005

Memorial Day, 2005, and I still have you in my heart. I wish I could have saved you. Keep the gates open for me. I know you are probably a Gunny by now, so you can set the rules for the pearly gates.... Doc



17 Mar 2006

Mills, it has been 39 years since that day. I am in contact with Toni on occasion and with J on a regular basis. I am getting older and I look forward to the day when I can see you again... Doc



04 Jan 2008Mills is buried in
Evergreen Cemetery
3401 W 87th St
Evergreen Park, IL 60805.





16 Mar 2008

Today, a long time ago, we were together. Keep me in mind for a longer time together in the future... Love you and miss you... Doc
