Paul Saevig, ’67 entering Ken’s sisters's message on July 21, 2019 at 12:23 AM said:

06 Nov 1998

Christmas eve will be thirty years since I lost my brother Kenneth Devore. I was fifteen years old and was totally devastated. I sit here with tears flowing down my cheeks with the hope that someone else out there might remember him too. I have wanted for so long to talk to someone who knew him in ‘Nam.

Kenny was a door gunner on a Huey with the "Stallions" of the 92nd Assault Helicopter Company at Phan Rang. He was there from September 10, 1968 until December 24, 1968. Thirty years later I still miss and love him so very much. I have raised my kids to know of him and to always pay their respects to all the branches of the military service. Even though they have never met him, they know him in their hearts. When the Moving Wall comes around we all go together to see Uncle Kenny's name.

If there is anyway for me to be able to get in contact with someone that might have been there with him I surely would appreciate knowing how to do it. I am starting to find my way around the internet. My husband and I are planning a trip to The Wall this upcoming year. That will be a dream come true for me. Thank you for listening to me.

Hoping to hear from someone who knew Kenny,

Barbara Hoke
