The following article appeared in the local Vallejo newspaper for Tim Dineen. The experience was very special for everyone attending, veteran and non-veteran alike. There was an older couple at the gravesite ceremony that came because of a newspaper article. They had no connection to the family or the military but felt they should attend anyway! The gathering after the ceremony at the VFW in Benicia was most meaningful in the sharing of memories of PFC Dineen and the camaraderie of Company C. I feel very privileged to have shared the event.
