Troopers – we have just learned of Stu Harrell’s loss. Please join us in supporting him by conveying your wishes …

Darrel,

I just heard from Stu that his wife Martha passed away in mid May after a long and painful battle with cancer. He is really down in the dumps now.

Stu was the last ‘B’ Co Tiger 6 in Nam … came in after Roy Duncan replaced Dick Patterson for a time after Patterson was KIA. After we went home he was transferred to First Inf Div and had the Aerofifle Platoon in the 1/4 Cav.

Note: the last chapter of Hugh Mills’s book Low Level Hell features Stu and his guys.
 
If anyone wants to send condolences his e- mail is nttybmpo@aol.com.

Snail mail is 6712 N. 19th Place, Phoenix, AZ 85016.
 
He is one of the good guys and was at the reunion in Texas this year.
 
See you in August,

Jerry
