Comments: To all members of the 82nd Airborne Division: Good luck and good hunting. To the RVN veterans, especially the soldiers of Company B, 2nd Battalion, 505th Airborne Infantry, I hope you have a wonderful and peaceful Christmas and New Year and have a kind thought for the All Americans who are defending us from the fanatics. I was Company B’s FO from December 1968 to June 1969, and I know grunts need all the prayers they can get. God bless all of you!
