Comments: Great time at the reunion. I got to talk to a couple of Glider Troopers on Friday. One guy was from the 319th Gliders. Really had some stories. This was my first association reunion and it was 1st class. Finally met Rich O’Hare. Great guy. It was good to see Duke Dewey after all these years and Gen. Bolling (looking good Sir!). Hope to see everyone at the next one. Hey Duke, thanks for the “Welcome Home”. It was the first time I heard anyone say it in 35 years. Airborne!

Comments: Hey guys…just found this site(8/6/03). Wanna put in my two cents for contact charlie,Company C,1/508th,82nd,1th platoon,third squad…I was the 3rd squad leader (leg) from june 68 through april 69. We lived in the bush for around 33 days and got choppered back to a forward firebase for a couple of days as our “rear area”,where we pulled ambush patrols off there.I’ve talked to alot of vets in the last thirty something years,but I’ve never spoken with anyone who had such a screw job as we did.Being attached to the hundred and first kinda made us the red haired step child…they got the glory,we worked all the A.O.s,encludeing the marine a.o.’s…glad ya all made it back.If SGT Brock is still kick’in…Hello!
