Lt. I'll definately make of point of remembering those men. On April 19th, '68 our track hit an AT mine, 2 dead, 3 wounded (my injuries were the most minor). Maybe we could all remember those brothers too.

Welcome home folks, stay healthy,
Andy

Right there with you in remembrance..I gotta tell you,though-I am totally dazzled by your memory of dates,etc. Most of mine are more of surreal feelings-Dates and times and numbers seem to elude me..Course,I ain`t exactly "right" I reckon.
