    I served with Michael in the 353rd Transportation Battalion. We did annual training at Fort Campbell, Kentucky many years ago and managed to get some off time to visit a Civil War Battlefield. I enjoyed him sharing his knowledge on everything. Thanks for your service Sergeant Forgas Rest in Peace.

    Lucy, you and “Mickey Joe,” were my classmates at St. Anthony’s. I will pray for him, and also ask him to intercede for us, too. I remember how Mickey Joe recruited some of us at S.A. to be a Junior Deputy Sheriff as boys. He was really into that. I remember how he walked everywhere he went, and he had such strong legs, that when he was at South Park High School, he interested the track coach, who saw him at P.E. with such muscular legs. He was good at Dodge Ball, and would end up last to be put out. I lost track of him after High School, but heard that he went to the Army, like a lot of us. My condolences to his children.
