It's amazing what you run across on the internet. Here is a website of government archived photos that has many BRO pictures, check it out.
http://www.fold3.com/ Just like everything the govt. touches it isn't easy to use. Well, still here in Vung Tau. The weather is getting wetter but still sunny mostly. My wife will be getting her US visa next month hopefully, after nearly 3 years, only the interview left. So we are outta here soon. Maybe next year I can be at the PF reunion. Hope all you guys had a great time! Best regards to all my brothers. Steve

Been a long time since I have ck'ed this site. I try to stay off the computer - too much stuff going on in the world that flat pisses me off. Doc says I have to keep the blood pressure down. I love you guys so I will try and stay in better contact but we cannot talk politics or religion. lol. Sorry Janna and I missed the reunion this year. Thank you Sammy and Al for sending the pics. From reading the posts it sounds like it was a great one. We will try for 2013. This has been a big year for us. Within the last 7 months two of our three children were married and our third will be married in December. Our son graduated from BCT on May 10th in Ft Leonard Wood (he is now in OCS at Benning); and our youngest daughter graduated from Law School on May 19th in Portland. I took the Road King to FLW, Janna and Rach (Lou's wife flew). During my ride down I thought that they made the smarter choice. Took me four days to get there. I hit three or four snow squalls before I got out of MT, within 150 miles of home had a flat, and I had to use my heated vest and gloves until I got 1/2 through IA. Ride home was fantastic however. Weather was in 70s to 80s. Did it in three days and was only stopped for speeding once in WY. It is currently raining and has been since we got back from Portland.
A 2/2, June 1969 until the 1st was sent back to the World then the 101st until July 1970.

Reporting in for June 2012.
All is well in Campbellsville.
Since I started 10 months ago to contact my fellow 1969 Vietnam soldiers of Alpha Company 1/2 I am happy to say I have contacted 20 guys. It has been an absolute thrill in talking with these fine men after 43 years. Let's all keep the memories alive and never forget.

Lost touch when roll call got "full"
Just retired this week and now having to figure out what to do when I grow up.
Reply with quote #166
Glenn, don't loose touch, being retired is tough, it takes a lot of effort figuring out how to spend your day ?? After awhile I wondered why I waited so long ? Take care Bro, Norm

Retirement is great. Last week my wife asked me what I was going to do today, when I said I'm not going to do anything, she said that's what you did yesterday. I told her I know, but I didn't get finished.

I just found this site and glad to talk to everyone. I was in the 2/2 from 6/69 and wounded 2/70 just before our unit went to get ready to bug out to germany. My memory of being in country is just bits and pieces (too much blood loss?) so I only remember bits and pieces of faces and places and no names. I only remember a hell of a nice guy from Blacky, Ky., A fellow grunt named Bud from Wi. (I think) and the medic that saved my life (I think his name was Weber). Also I heard that our CO and a guy nicknamed sweet pea (??) were killed in Dian in an accident (explosion) unloading a track. If anyone remembers me give me a shout on this forum as it would be really great to hear from you. Thanks to all involved with this site and I'll try to be there in 2013.
