High School Classmates

I was with a LRRP Unit in Bien Hoa in December,1967. I was being transfered to the 4th Infantry Division, and while watching TV one night at the transfer station, a soldier approached me and identified himself as John Brown from Staten Island. I recognized him immediately as having been in my gym class at Port Richmond High School, and I remembered that he liked playing basketball. It was good to meet someone from home in a faraway war zone, and while waiting to leave for our respective assignments, for the next couple of days after
duty we watched movies and talked into the night. The last time I saw John was when the bus carrying him to his unit drove past. Apparently he saw me as they drove by, as he shouted and waved goodby through the window. I was later informed that he was on his way to field duty with the 101st Airborne.

When I DEROS'd and returned stateside, I was visiting friends at a gas station where I'd worked after school, and one of the guys told me that John Bown had been killed. In finding information from the Virtual Wall website, I see that he was in the field only a month before it happened.

Before I went on to my own unit from the transfer station, I went to see the Bob Hope Christmas Show at Tan Son Nhut Air Base, and after the show I met Gen. Westmoreland in the crowd. Two of my fondest memories of Viet Nam were in meeting Gen. Westmoreland and John Brown.
