Comments: Hello: The Norfolk Convention was exceptionally well run. The Charleston, WV, team promises to do better. Anyway, I was the Artillery FO with B/2/505, Dec 68-Jun69, and XO of B/2/321st FA, Jun69 until stand-down. The E-mail address says it all: “Your tax dollars at work!” See you all in Charleston next year.

Comments: “Some gave All” Given this day I go back to see, The names on The Wall, That remind me of thee, They were the ones that gave it their all, I’m still here to remember all that fell, Memories old, Memories new, Places from Hell at night I recall, But we Brothers stood and still stand tall. They’ll never know what we have seen over there, These ghosts just gleam, a blur in the air, That flag over there shines brighter when we are here, As we as Brothers don’t show any fear. So when the common folk forget the freedom they wear, And take it for granted that we were there, There’s a million veterans that fought for the truth, That gave their lives to grant freedom to you, They will never be forgotten , Not to me and not to you, They were one of us, But now they’re just dust, We are the few, proud, and brave left to live, To remember those days. So spread the word, Just remember what those stars and stripes unite, We as one nation ready to fight. We will n

Comments: I was the older guy who worked for the Chaplain mostly in the 1/508. I may have been known as “the lawyer” since I was drafted after law school. Re Vietnam: I tell friends I was doing government sponsored post-graduate work abroad. The Army was most definitely an “education.” I’ve had a pretty good life since Vietnam. I’m glad we have this website.
