Comments:  I deployed with the Brigade from Bragg on Feb 12th. This was my second tour having deployed my first time with the 1st Cav in ‘65 with C/2/7th Cav after “volunteering” to get out of the DomRep where I was with the 1/504th. I returned to Vietnam in 1971/72 as the Echo Co. 1/12th Cav, 1st Cav Recon Platoon Sergeant for my third and last tour before hanging it up after nine years.      I attended the 82nd and Golden Bde reunion in Reno last year, my first ever military reunion at the behest or Richard O’Hare and insistence of my wife. I’m glad I did. However, nine days later I ended up in the ICU of a California hospital and ain’t quite been the same since. If I’d know I’d live this long I’d of taken better care of myself! them conventions are hell! Nine straight days of hospitality rooms will take its toll. Anyway – here’s to all of the Golden Brigade and especially the “Peeing Panthers! My 82nd years were my best.

Comments:  HI, I’m trying to locate information on any 82nd Military Police troopers who were either wounded or killed in Vietnam.  I’m the current 1SG for the 82nd MP Company and I’m putting together a Purple Heart Board for my unit.  If anyone knows for a fact any 82nd MP WIA or KIA, please send their name, rank and any information.  I’m hoping to have the PH board completed before All American Week May 2005.  Thank you very much
