The worst day of my Life

I was in the 4th of the 39th with Walter aka "Doc" on the day he was lost. I witnessed first hand as Doc charged forward to help wounded solders just beyond the tree and brush line. I believe it was a RPG ( Rocket Propelled Grenade ) that soared over our heads in the direction Doc had rushed . I remember him as a kind and gentle soul and hope he is honored in Heaven. We lost good friends and soldiers this day and I am forever grateful to have survived. All of us loved Doc and were so sad to see him lose his life .

Oh God this hurts to write!

My wife and I lived in the same apartment complex as Wally, his lovely wife and darling daughter. It was sparse times, a nickel or a dime had to go a long way. He and his wife were always there for anyone who needed or wanting for something. His heroism is not surprise because this is Wally and his family. War is cruel. There are no words to express how cruel it is. I'm so sorry for so many reasons and one of these days I will get the courage to visit your name and say a prayer. God Bless

Basic Training at Ft. Sam Houston

I was in the same Basic Training class as Walter (Tiny) Nutt. That was in the fall of 1968. I remember that he was a big guy and his voice boomed whenever he spoke to his squad. He told me of his wife and their baby daughter. He said that after his Army hitch he wanted to go back home to Des Moines and open his own restaurant. I remember the sadness felt by the troops when we learned of Tiny's death. He was such a great guy and everybody loved him. This was the second friend i lost in Viet Nam. It made me loathe that war on a very personal level.
