Tommy Chapbun - BLACK LION EXTRAORDINAIRE

I am posting this message for Gary Kellerman, who served in Viet Nam with Tommy in the 2nd Battalion 28th Infantry, the BLACK LIONS of the 1st Infantry Division, the BIG RED ONE.

Tommy was with the Recon Platoon, and the day he died, the Recon Platoon was ambushed and most of them were killed.

It was a terrible shock to the men of the BLACK LIONS because to many a new member, the Recon Platoon were larger than life, they were every man's dream of what a combat soldier should look like as well as act like, and if they could be ambushed, or, worse yet, killed, then the rest of us were in real trouble. It was a harsh eye opener to start a one year tour of duty in a front line infantry battalion in Viet Nam in 1966.

God Bless you Tommy, we'll never forget you.
