Re: Bought this reproduction patch on ebay

Got the first of two today. All the way from Vietnam. Looks like "Dawson" is Nguyen hoang le from the return address on the envelope. And.... it looks really pretty good. The white has a bit of corduroy affect like the "real" one from half a century ago. The Size is just about ex...

Re: Bladder Cancer

It seems to me we drank unseen water. Water went from metal water buffalo to opaque green canteen. The only examination we did was to examine the taste. If we were really thirsty, like most of the time, the taste didn't count. But remember the resupply bladders? White plastic jugs. They weren't hidi...

Bought this reproduction patch on ebay

I bought this patch on ebay that was a pretty good reproduction of the Ace patch. It's actually made in Vietnam so that much is officially following instructions. I'll see it in maybe a week and comment on how good a reproduction it is and how close to correct size. I sent the guy a message asking h...

Old Joe Biden looks to be on his way

It hurts to see a political party, with a easy path to the White House, stumble so badly. All the boys in the back room holding or directing the money of the Democratic party had to do was find some reasonably intelligent warm body, somewhat known, without a lot of policial baggage, that could make ...

This is from a string I started on the facebook page that I'm continuing here. Robert Stephens, original CO of Delta Company from Ft. Lewis days sent me a photo of the company commanders at Ft.

Noticed in the Regiment Association obituary. James D. Quisenberry, CO Delta, died September 6, 2018. He was from Louisville Kentucky. He was at the 2015 Branson reunion. It was reported that he was battling bladder cancer from about that time. He left the Army as a Major. https://www.legacy.com/obi...

Who says Trump has a hard on for Iran? He's promoting an American Flag business. What could be more patriotic than that?
