Served together

We went to Vietnam when the 1968 TET offensive started. We were radio telegraph operators, 2533. Served in the FDC and as radio operators on forward observer teams. We spent a lot of time with the grunts on patrol.

We didn't see each other once we got to Nam as we were all assigned to different 105 batteries and farmed out to grunt companies to provide close fire support.

This is a photo of Cal and me just before we went to Nam. It was taken in January of 1968 I remember because I was on 30 mess duty for a minor infraction. We went to Nam in February.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PVT Calvin Knight Wood Jr, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
