Comments: Hi gang! Hope to hear from some of You. I was a Radio Teletype Operator with A co,82nd Sig Bn at Bragg and went with the Third to Nam in 68. I helped assembled all the new VSC1’s for us in Bragg (how nice of them to send us over with rigs that only a few were trained on). I might have met some you Ratt operators in Nam, since my entire first month was going from unit to unit and assisting all of you RATT operators in retraining some of our new RATT operators and RTO’s. I have contact with Roger Hopkins and Chuck Neville am looking for anyone else who may have come in contact with us, also looking for Leo Schori and Lt Lanier.

Comments: I have a in-good-shape copy of the 1969 Yearbook for the 3rd Bde 82nd. Lots of pics with no captions and a list of KIAs. Someone make me a decent offer. Also involved with a project to identify Company-level units for all 58,000 Vietnam KIAs. Will supply for free spreadsheet of 82nd KIAs broken down by Battalion and Company. Regards Dick

Comments: I am Michael Glockler’s daughter. I know the 82nd Airborne awards scholarships to seniors for college and I was wondering how I would go about getting the information for these scholarships. I remember seeing something last year in a newsletter, but that is out of date now. Any info would be great! Thanks again, hope everyone is having a great new year!
