Good Evening /r/militarystories,
It is with a very sad heart that one of our beloved users, /u/dittybopper, passed away yesterday. For those who don't know, Ditty was an Army Vietnam Veteran, serving from 1965-1969. If you can't tell, he was a morse code interceptor (Military Intelligence) and was instrumental in helping find/detect NVA in Vietnam. He was an avid poster in /r/militarystories and on other military subreddits. He really like interacting with you all and passing on his stories.
I was lucky enough to have met him twice in real life. He was such an incredible person. Extremely intelligent, spry, and generous. We truly have lost a great soul and this place won't be the same without him.
Please help me send him off (and if you're one for drinking, have one for Ditty). I plan to send his sister the link to this page so his family can see how much he will be missed.
