  1. Just wanted to say thanks to Terry and Louise for being such wonderful host in Seattle. They did a terrific job hosting the reunion. I went to the Americal reunion in Albuquerque, NM the next week, 14th thru 18th. For those of you who may remember or served with Don Alexander, he was KIA in March of 69. I left country before Don’s death. One thing that I wanted to do while in Albuquerque, was to visit Don’s gravesite in Socorro, NM 80 miles south of Albuquerque. I was able to rent a car in the hotel, make the drive down there, and successfully find the cemetery and Don’s gravesite next to his parents and pay my respects to Don. It was a good feeling being able to do that successfully. Hopefully, I’ll see everyone next year in Cleveland!

    1. Carl,
      Thanks for visiting his grave. Although I did not know Don I was in that major engagement. My first major firefight. May he RIP.

  2. Brothers, thanks to all who came to Seattle. Such a beautiful place to visit and live. We had a great time hosting and look forward to seeing our west coast brothers a bit more often. Thanks again and again to Larry for making this possible and also for helping my wife. Brother, Terry

  3. Everyone who couldn’t attend the reunion missed a great time. Louise and Terry did wonderful job. I hope more can make the next reunion you know we aren’t getting any younger.

  4. Colonel Si Nerone sent me a check to buy refreshments for the guys at the reunion. Everyone got several refreshing drinks from his contribution. I had several of the sales receipts signed by the guys. Several made comments along with their thanks that I will be forwarding Brother Si.
    Brother Bill Beckum also wanted me to buy a round of beverages on him and send him the bill.
    All the attendees thank Brothers Si and Bill.

  5. While at the reunion, I received an very nice contribution for the web site and other expenses for Charlie Company guys from Ron Causey. Thank you very much Ron, it is very much appreciated!

  6. I think we had 28 in attendance for the reunion. First time reunion attendees were Tate Hayes and Randy Budlong. We had a great time as usual. We got to see a lot of stuff around Seattle, especially the traffic. We did everything from going to a Seattle Mariners baseball game to the space dome. We also went to the market where they throw fish about 10 yards and another guy catches the fish and throws it back to the guy that threw it. And of course lots of socializing. It was a great reunion. Thank you, Terry and Louise Roberts for being a great hose for the reunion.

    We discussed next year’s reunion. It was brought up that if we hold a reunion in Cleveland that Captain Morris will be able to attend. Everyone thought this would be a good place to go next. Anyone have any suggestions?

  7. Well lets have some feedback on the reunion. Sorry Kay and I couldn’t make it. She is having a major test Wednesday & see the doctor Friday. Went to see Tom Hanks in “Sully” as she wanted to. Thought it was going to do her in. Prayers please. We met in High School, married 2 1/2 years when I went to Nam, & married 50 years in June.

  8. am in Florida-visited ron hurst–hope to see “mac” mckiney on Drive back to AZ. DANG grunts are getting are getting older.

  9. Took basic training at Fort Devens, Mass. and was a squad leader with 2/1 but because of my typing skills I was assigned to HHC Section 4 as a clerk typist after basic. Sargeants Patterson and Rodrigues were my drill sargeants in basic. I worked for Major Ashley and Sargeant Lenhart in S-4 Section.

    1. Hi Donald
      I think you must have been in Lt. Paul Cahill’s platoon in basic.
      I don’t remember Ashley but Capt. Snow was in the S4 office for quite a while at that time.
      Your are one of the very few C Cpmpany guys here from the very early days.

  10. Seeking information on death of 2Lt (posthumously promoted 1Lt) Robert “Chomp” Russell Lewis, from Pierre, SD; WIA 5 Jan 68, died of wounds 10 Jan 68. Chomp was my childhood friend and college classmate. He was killed while I was in Officers Training and soon to Vietnam, so was not aware of his death and circumstances at the time. Would like to correspond with those who knew him in unit and might have information on his loss. Thanks, Larry, Vietnam ’69-70.

    1. Hi Larry,

      My name is Carl Fryman and Lt Lewis was my platoon leader. I was with him on 5 January 68 when he was wounded. Send me an email at carlfryman@fuse.net We will set something up to talk over the phone rather than over the net.
