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 VietnamWarMyths.blogspot.com. 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.

Thanks and enjoy!

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.

Hi Adrianne,

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.

Lt. Tucker,

     I know this post was from a long time ago but SP4 Richard Fetterhoff was my father. Sadly, he passed away last December after having a heart attack. Any info or stories you have on him would be greatly appreciated. I loved my father tremendously but he rarely talked about his service and sacrifice. Thanks again.

Larry,  Do you gave anything on an SP4 Martinez, my RTO, when I was the 4.2" Mortar Forward Observer, attached to B-2/2, prior to a hasty DEROS departure Aug. 66.  He was from Arecebo (spelling?), Puerto Rico.

My father, 1LT Richard "Dick" Morrissey, served in 3rd platoon/ company B 2/2 in 67-68. He passed away 11 days ago and I stumbled on this site researching his life. He was ckose to CPT Sonny Gratzer Commander Co. B. If anyone served with my father or maybe knew/knows someone who did I would be humbled and honored to hear anything about his and your time there.

Stan thank you for your response and your name. I did not even consider looking on the casualty list for your company commanders name. Guess I'm getting old when things like that elude me.

Take care,

Hi, I'm hoping to find someone who remembers my dad. His name was William G. Adams. He may have went by Bill or Sonny. He never talked about his time in Vietnam so I have very little info. I did find a picture of him and some friends. They all have the 2nd Infantry Division patch. If anyone has any stories or information, please let me know. Sincerely, Benita
