My Brother Dennis.

My younger brother John posts information about our older brother Dennis that is not accurate. ' Dennis served in Viet-Nam thru the following dates..6/66-8/67.
During that tour and extension Dennis was wounded 3 times. The first time was in Aug?Sept 66 when he landed on an infected punji stake as he dove for cover on the outset of a VC ambush. Dennis lost feet of his lower intestines and almost died. He recovered at the army hospital in Zama Japan. He returned to the 1st brigade as a Captain . While functioning in the Village support program, Dennis had a helmet shot off his head. He got a scar and another Purple Heart. The helmet is presently the property of the NYS Military Museum. Dennis came home for a week that summer of 67 and then went back to the army and Viet-Nam.. I missed him. WE DID NOT MEET IN THAT WEEK. Dennis went back to VN as the CO of a company in the 2/327 of the 101st. That HQ unit was almost overrun some night in Aug 67. Dennis took a round thru the stomach that reopened the old punji stake wound. Another wound across his wrist. Multitude of multitudes of mortar and grenade schrapnel wounds thru out his body.. He then came back to the states and was assigned to Ft Dix. Dennis married and his daughter Diane was born in early Sept. 1968. I'm the godfather.. Dennis went back to VN on his 2 full tour in Aug of 69. . I was in VN at that time and went home because of the "Sullivan Law". Look it up. Dennis came home from that tour in Aug 70 and went back for his 3rd full and final tour in Nov of 71.
