Still miss you my good friend & fellow patriot

Just came across this website. I knew George as "Larry Leap" in Indianapolis 1963-65. We spent every weekend and some weekday evenings together, mostly skydiving. We called ourselves the "Diving Dingoes" and racked up many a jump together with "Reddy Bear" and my brother Ron. Larry was a good man, one I'd trust w/ my back anytime, anywhere. He felt strongly that he should serve his country and gave his life doing so. He is still greatly missed today, Feb. 4, 2009.

Indiana National Guardsmen

The date of the photo is 13 May 1968, at the Indiana National Guard Armory in Greenfield, IN. The occasion of the picture is the day of Federal activation of the unit for service in Vietnam.

The unit, Company D (RANGER), 151st Infantry, Indiana Army National Guard, was the only National Guard Infantry unit to serve in Vietnam. And the only Guard unit to serve in Vietnam as a Guard unit.

101 Army National Guardsmen were killed in Vietnam.

Honored to hear about him

My late husband, Larry Jo Conrad, graduated from OCS with George at the Indiana Military Academy, Camp Atterbury, Indiana. When Larry found George's name on the wall in 1994, he was overcome with emotion. I personally did not know George, but from what my husband had told me, he was proud to serve in the Indiana Army National Guard and for his country.

"I AM SORRY SIR"

I served in Lt. Kleiber's Platoon in Viet Nam. We were in 2nd Patoon, Co. D, 151st Infantry which was a Long Range Patrol unit. I remember once he and I had a falling out. A short time later I was transfered to another unit and I never seen him again. When I heard of his death I always regretted not having said, "I am sorry Sir". "You were a good officer and we will always love you. We will never forget you." I hope your family knows how much we appreciate your ultimate sacrifice.
