Daring Bravo Bandit 31 reporting for duty for the month of May 2017...4 May 1968 is Daring Bravo Bandit's 4th day on the Rome Plow operation. General Keith Ware "Danger 77" the First Division (Big Red One) Commander visited our (Daring Bravo Bandits) NDP during our first week of the Rome Plow operation. Also this month on 24 May 1968 the 2/2 Infantry engaged and defeated a NVA force in An Loc/ Loc Nihn.  On 25 May 1971 during my second combat tour in Vietnam assigned to E Troop, 2/11th Armored Cavalry Regiment I was wounded in battle during a night ground attack in the Hobo-Boi Loi Woods.  Hope that all of you brothers have a very solemn and peaceful 2017 Memorial Day.

Checking in for the month of June. Hope this finds everyone doing well. It has been a cold wet spring here in upstate NY. Lots of Lake Ontario flooding in our resort areas. Places like Alexandria Bay and Clayton had to bring in floating docks as the permanent ones are under water. More rain in the forecast. Take care.

Second Infantry Regiment fall in...receive the report...Daring Bravo Bandit 231 is present for duty for the of June 2017.  For those who attended the annual 2nd Infantry Regiment Reunion 2017 I hope that you enjoyed those wonderful important days together again..I really did enjoy mine at the 2014 Reunion in Pegeon Forge. It was a pleasure to get a free autograph copy of the book "Call Sign Dracula" from Joe Fair and finnally got the great opportunity to meet and be in the company of many of the guys on the website, especially Norm Barks, Roger Beeman, Ron Ziegler, William G Stafford "B16"; Tom Copeland and our Historian Larry Grzywinski and many other 2nd Infantry Regiment Brothers.....a wonderful life time everlasting emotional experience and honor.

Today's the 100th anniversary of the First Infantry Division (also my 72nd birthday).
50 years ago today I sat on my foxhole unable to contemplate what it must have been like in 1917, let alone what my life would be like in another 50 years. At the time I just thought it was neat having the same birthday as the Division. At 22 it was inconceivable for my to view life that far in the past or future. I do remember telling myself that I would hold my thought of that day.
I will dine with family tonight in Napa Valley and with a bottle of the "1st Division 100th anniversary wine" we will toast to those Big Red One soldiers killed in combat over the past century.

Hello Ramrods

I hope this finds you and family well and prosperous. All is well in Campbellsville, KY. 

I had a great time at the 2017 Society of the First Infantry Division Reunion in Kansas City this past week. I really enjoyed sitting in a Huey and thanks to the Missouri Vietnam Veterans for the display. 

Salute to all,

I had a great time visiting my kids and Grand Kids in Florida last month. Riding Jet skis and playing with the Dolphin's.
I pray that everyone is doing great.
God Bless the USA and the Veteran's.

Late checking in for August. But when the 7th comes around I always think of Nam. Back in 68 the 4th platoon caught hell in a mortar attack. Larry Swiggum killed and 19 guys wounded to one degree or another. Only The Terrible Tennessee Tilly, Don Tilly was unscathed. He did quite a job that night earned a Silver Star.

Tough night and sad morning.
