Hi Rick Simonson here.
I was with the 2/2 scouts 69 & 70. I checked in a long time ago. Been kinda busy. I am finishing my master's in communications at Southern Utah University in about a month. I want to invite everyone to look at my new thread on this forum, called Vietnam War Myths at Sorry the name of the thread is so long. It is there to share announcements about my blog. Check the introduction on the thread. There is some good reading on my blogspot posts & I plan to announce them on the new thread as well as inviting comments from anyone who has an opinion about the material I present. VietnamWarMyths.blogspot.com. Thanks and enjoy! Rick PS When you get to the blog, scroll down to the bottom and click 'old posts' so you can start with the introduction. Blogspot puts the newest posts on top which is convenient if you are keeping up, but it can be confusing to come in on the middle of a topic. so scroll down to the older stuff first. Thanks!

Looks like the pic was taken after we redeployed and Scott moved on to the 101st. He is hard to recognize (LOL) without his granny sun glasses. (I took a pic of him and Torres at guard mount in Dau Tieng with the hippie shades on. Put an email up and I'll send it to you. Are you Scott's ex or daughter??

I just noticed what appears to be my name on your list. I just retired from the Dearborn Michigan vet Center. I posted about 80 pictures on this site's picture section. Did you have blonde or light colored hair-of course the sun did that to most of us.
