A long time ago I was in Quan Loi. Bravo Company 1st of the 2nd. I was Lt. O'Hare back in those days and left the Army when my time was up. Did anyone  here serve with me. Let me know in my email. I already heard from Capt. Hearn and Lt. Armstrong. Hope to hear from my old comrades and it doesn't matter what rank you were. I've been a civilian for forty plus years.

Just checking in to let you all know the 'Jersey Boys' are still kicking. Everything is back on line at my place and I just heard from Broz. He is without power and heat and today he's holded up at his mom's place. He sounded none the worse for the wear. Hopefully he'll have all his services back real soon.

I was the squad ldr on the 232 track . Norm

I was platoon leader of the third platoon from May to September 1967.  In September of '67 I was
rotated into batallion headquarters and stayed there until May of 68.  I am sorry that I have not been
able to put your real name with your sign in "Mother".  I check into the message board from time to
time and will try to add the names of the guys in our platoon as best as I can.  

When I came into the platoon, SFC Davis was the platoon sgt.  Carrier, Bill Black, Winchuk and then
Caudill were the squad leaders.  Grasso replaced Black, as best as I can recall.  The platoon
sgt. became SSG. Delbasque after Davis left and then he was replaced by Sgt Lynn who was the
sgt. when I left.   My RTO was  Barry Hunt, who was badly injured and the sole survivor when Cpt.
Rose's track hit a mine.  Our medic was Dave Berry who went on to make the army a career and
is now retired as a Lt. Col.  Some of the other names that I recall were Kleinberg and Blumberg,
Jeff Hahn, who died due to a short round at Lorraine II.  Also  hurt in that incident were Gibson
and Black  ( I was already in Hq by that time but remember that bad place still).  The other names
that come to mind are Kron (who was wounded in the same area during a fire fight) and Chief,
Lavon Salabee.   My driver of the 234 track was James Goldman.  I also recall Jodie Goodman,
another good guy. 

In addition to these great people, I fondly recall Jack Gallagher, company commander, whom I
understand retired as Brigadeer General  and his driver, David Stanley, who was killed with Rose,
and Sgt Murray, the acting first sgt.

Maybe these names will light a fuse to some added names from my time with the third platoon.
I still regard it as the best job that I ever had in a lot of respects.  Following Viet Nam I finished
up at Ft. Riley and then returned to Michigan where I began a life as a civilian.  I now live in

Drop me a line if any of this is at all helpful
