Comments: My husband, Victor, was deployed with the 3rd Brigade from Ft. Bragg in Feb. 68. He does not know I am posting this message. After seeing MG (ret.) Bolling’s picture in the Paraglide as the guest speaker at the 35th Anniversary Reunion, I was ecstatic to see him. Victor worked for him and admired him immensely. I was surfing the internet and was thrilled to find your website. I am hopeful that you can help me locate Col. Bolling, so Victor may contact him. If any one else would like to contact me, I would very much appreciate your interest and hearing from you. Not knowing about the 57th Annual Convention, I was hoping Victor would attend the 58th in 2004. Thank you for your help. Anxious to hear from someone. Sincerely, Janet Iannelli (married 36 years).

Comments: I deployed with Headquarters & Headquarters Co 1/508 in February 1968. I was the S&T Platoon Leader. LTC Archie Campbell was our Bn Cmdr. Later that spring I was transferred to B Company where I was the 4th Platoon Leader. I made the wreath laying ceremony in 1983 and hope to make it to Washington this year.
