Re: 31st Infantry Oct 1920 magazine

Ugh... looks like they got not only false press but a damming press after fighting completely out numbered for eight straight days under awfully weather conditions.

Re: Ashes and the Wall

I think, if it were up to me, I'd like my ashes scattered at my favorite fishing reef or another place where I have happy memories. Then again, if my wife should go first, that notion would likely change to a lot in a cemetery to be more conventional... like keeping the socks paired up or the spoon ...

Ashes and the Wall

Saw this story in the local paper. Guy promised his brother shortly before he died that he would take his ashes to the Wall in Washington and leave them. The park service collects whatever is left there...all sorts of stuff.....including ashes of dead veterans left there. Only now.... enough is enou...

The 6th of the 31st served in two different Brigades

When the battalion got to Vietnam it was assigned to the 1st , Recondo, Brigade. Then in the summer of 69, when the 1st and 2nd Brigades pulled out the battalion was transferred to the 3rd , Go Devil, Brigade because it hadn't been in country long and traded places with some battalion in the 3rd Bri...

Trumps State of the Union

Most of the talking heads on TV....the ones that I watched at least... made note of how Trump does better when he sticks to the script and doesn't come off as a shoot from the lip lout. He got an A for not playing to his usual first thing that pops into his head rhetoric. That was commendable for su...

Re: A Christmas gift from my daughter and a video I just made

That Branson reunion was a high water mark in reuniting guys from not just their own companies but from other companies from the battalion. Back in the day a guy could complete a tour in one company and never get to actually know or talk to guys in other companies. It was nearly the same with guys f...

Re: A Christmas gift from my daughter and a video I just made

It wasn't hard to do. Could have done different formats and different music too. Haven't tried it on actual camera made video yet. That's next. What I was using was from Coral Video Studio Ultimate X10. And Vimeo is free for sharing as long as you don't upload a file much larger than the video I made.

I tend to not throw much of anything out and so was looking for something a while ago and found this copy of a letter I sent to addresses on the Alpha list from 2005 that had been assembled and maintained by Jerry White. That list was largely unproven and not as large as it has gotten to be in later...
