A friend

Sgt. Victor Edward Anderson and I had been in the same company in the 1/9th Infantry, 2nd Infantry Division at Fort Benning, GA.and had been good friends. When that battalion broke up,many of its members were scattered to various units in the First Cavalry Divison that was going to go to Viet Nam. He and I were sent to Company D, 2/12th Cavalry. We had only a few short weeks to prepare to go to Viet Nam and had to take all our belongings home. At the time I had no car and had too many personal belongings to take them home by bus. He had a station wagon and was taking his family home to Florida in it, so my belongings went in the rear and we all traveled to my home town to my grandparents' home. There we all sat for a while on the front porch drinking iced tea, until he and his family continued their journey. Later that month we shipped to Viet Nam and in a few months I transferred to a different company, but he and I stayed in touch up until his death. Victor was a dedicated soldier and family man.
