Very good friend of mine was stabbed and killed yesterday morning hiking with his wife, thee coolest cat I ever knew. He introduced me to Africa, me nervous as hell fresh off the plane and him taking me through a small village on foot along the Tanzania/Mozambique border to show me the beach. He served in Rhodesia as a helo pilot. We flew SAR sorties together on the Somalia border and again just last year with the Suriname Coast Guard. He was most recently touring in Kazakhstan. R.I.P. my friend.
