Reaching out for a veteran who never mentioned his Vietnam service
Calling on any veterans on the Gold Coast for help farewell one of my mates ex 7 RAR Vietnam 2nd tour Michael Rusden who was a loner.
His daughter Katinka ask me did I know how many veterans with medals would come to the funeral service Southport Lawn Cemetery a spot chosen by his only daughter and husband and two little children for the service is Lawn 5b plot e-29
As Shorty Rusden was a recluse, I am putting this out there as no brother should go out on their own the service will be held Monday 21st Nov at 10 AM on sight under a large tree.
Another mate is gone, Rest in peace Michael.
