Daring Bravo Bandit 6 "CPT Sonny Gratzer" this is a late congratulations for finally being awarded your "Silver Star" medal for your heroism during the 1968 TET Offensive from 31 Jan 1968- 13 Feb 1968. Two years ago I saw the presentation in the Bridgehead Sentinel and was very surprised to see one of my commanders again. A salute to a fine soldier, leader and combat commander of B 2/2 Infantry.  A great part of my 25.7 years of my military career's leadership standards was inspired by your combat leadership of taking care of your soldiers, knowing your soldiers by name, and recognizing your men; and getting the job done right with a sense of urgency,even though we called you "John Wayne".  I wish that you were the commander on 3 April 1968.   Noli Me Tangere!

 

Daring Bravo Bandit 31 over!
