    My son Danny is really tore up about this loss. Benjamin was his best friend since he joined the Navy. Rast as he was called by my son helped him make it thru Corpsman school. Danny was looking forward to going to San Diego at the end of this year where they will once again be stationed together. They were the only two in their graduating class that went to the green side. I am so sad for my son and pray for the Rast family. God Bless them all.
