    As a kid, I was in awe of Russell and it was a treat for a young kid to carry his track shoes when he offered! He was a wonderfully gracious young man! God bless him and his family!

  • I Served with Captain Condon in Vietnam

    Posted on 10/6/13 - by Greg Wilcox
    I was a lieutenant in Vietnam in the same advisory team as Captain Condon in 1965. He was a superb leader and teacher of men. We were in a 4 man advisory team for the 2d Battalion, 48th Infantry (Army of the Republic of Vietnam). I was on leave in Hong Kong when the battalion was ambushed in Phuoc Long Province moving to Song Be where there had been a major attack. Both Captain Condon and the team sergeant, Sergeant First Class Kelly were killed along with the entire Vietnamese command group. I am looking to contact any of his relatives for an article I am writing on the battle. He was truly extraordinary.

    Dear Captain Russell William Condon, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
