Jimmy, we were both out on that road the night you were lost. I never thought Vietnam Nam could be so cold. You were the only one we lost from Charlie Co. During Lam Son 719. ("Houses Raiders"). When we got back to Chu Lai we ended back up in the Old Navy barracks. Some of those guys got pretty silly seeing those flush toilets again. I have very few photos to share from that time. We were on operations and had been told to keep everything to ourselves. Later Stars and Stripes wrote a story about Charlie Company 23rd S&T. They quoted Captain House in it. I'll have to dig through my "stuff" to find it. So many memories still come to visit from those times. Little things that happened that come back at the darnedest times. RIP soldier. I pray you've found comfort in the arms of our lord.
