My buddy Butch recommended Dolly Parton’s Dixie StampedeÂ for our Orlando Thursday night dinner (August 10th) .Â It is a great show and for groups it is about $30 a head/$20 for kids.Â It also includes 2 beers or 2 glasses of wine.Â I think we are going to get a very big turnout this year and this would be a fun night for all involved.
Please review and give me your thoughts.
Airborne, All the Way and God Bless America!!!

I am looking for Sam Kelly.Â He was a Platoon leader with the 82nd in 1969. He might have known my brother, Lt. Johnny F. Davis.Â Johnny was in Co.B, 1st BN, 505th INF, 3D BDE, 82nd ABN DIV. He was in VietNam from May 13th, 1996 until his death on June 14th. He was a Platoon leader and was killed in an ambush in the Providence of Hoa Nghia.Â If anyone knows where Sam Kelly is please forward this to him and I pray he will get in touch with me.
Thank you and God Bless,
Karen Davis Johnson
I would sure love to know when and where the next reunion will be. I was with A/E 1/505th 3rd Bde. 82nd Abn. and was very proud to have servedÂ with all of you. I was not airborne qualified though. I was an RTO for LT. George Scorporellious. Has anyone ever made contact with him? I was so glad to hear that Jack Hamilton was at the reunion. I wish I could have found you sooner. It would be so great to here from any of you guys after all these years. Later on myself and another RTO (Baltizar) went to the 4-deuce until we came home. I’ll be watching for posts.
I am looking for anyone who was with the 2/505th 4.2 mortar company and the 2/505th HHC, from 1/69 to 11/1969. Especially Willie Gregg, John Ozment, and Johnny Huizar.
I am looking for anyone that may have known my father. Harold C. Maupin. He served with the 101st 82nd Airborne Division from 65 to 68. He was burned in the Dom. Rep and recieved 88% burns to his body. I’ve included a picture of him with unknown people and know that this is while serving in the Airborne Unit because I can see some scars onÂ his legs.Â He also served in the 35th Regiment (Cacti) before the reattachment and the paper’s state it was out of Fort Campbell, Kentucky on July 25, 1967.
Sorry to hear that some twit had to compromise the previous message board with spam and cause so much disruption. Thanx to all for getting things back up and running.
As a reminder, spent my second tour in country with HHC Co. Recon, 2/505th from February 1968 to July 1968 sandwiched between two tours with the 1st Cav. Was with C/2/7th in 1965/1966 and again with Echo/Recon 1st of the 12th CavÂ as Platoon Sergeant from 1971 to 1972. But my four years with the 82nd at Bragg and with the “Golden Brigade” still remain my fondest. I still have a much fadedÂ Black Panther tatooed on my left bicep proudly blazoned with 505th Recon. Jump Wings on the right arm.
Hope this finds all well and life being kind to you as we enter those “Golden Years.”Â

Comments: LOOKING FOR A JERRY LONG WHO WAS STATIONED WITH ME AT FIRE BASE COPPER HEAD. IF ANY ONE KNOWS OF HIS WHERE ABOUTS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. IT WOULD BE NICE TO FIND OUT HOW LIFE HAS BEEN WITH HIM SINCE VIETNAM. I WORKED ON THE RATION TRUCK WITH HIM. SOME TIMES WE ALL SO MADE GAS DELIVERIES. I REMEMBER THE TIME WE HAD CHICKEN AND DUMPLINGS. I ALL SO REMEMBER THE OFFICERS IN S-4 GETTING THROWN INTO THE TUB WE KEPT BEER IN. THAT HAD TO BE A COLD EXPERIENCE FOR THEM.
