Written in Rich's honor by George Andros:
Richard Gelsomino graduated from Howe in 1961. Rich graduated from UIC with a degree in chemistry. He served in the U.S. Army from 72-74. He trained at Ft. Leonard Wood Mo in the Engineers then shipped to Viet Nam. Rich's education well served him in the mobile, front line group of the 9th Medical Lab. I was told that Rich served with the Group in advanced combat lines setting up MASH units. He performed water and health testing at the fronts to insure the viability of the MASH treatment of troops. He returned to a 35 year career with the Department of Justice DEA. He left wife Patricia, two girls/husbands and grandchildren. The Patriot Guard Riders were invited to stand in his honor at Lincoln National Cemetery giving him the final salute in Dec 2013. May his memory be eternal.  George Andros  Howe 1961
