Russian interference in the US political system

The media has their shorts in a wad over it. The war hawks in Congress...John McCain etc., are all turning red in the face..pun intended..... and demanding all sorts of Annie Get Your Gun things. The Democrats are loudly in the chorus, as they have always been...see Hillary and Bill too. How about a...

Re: Branson Ride the Ducks tragedy

After the lawyers get through with the Ride the Ducks in Branson I got a feeling there will be no more Ride the Ducks in Branson.... and maybe anywhere else. What I want to know is how is it that there are so many franchises? We got them in Mobile. How many of those things from probably WWII can sti...

Re: Branson Ride the Ducks tragedy

From a news video somebody made with their phone it looked like the windows were up and the bow end was being washed over. If the Duck went down with the windows up it would have been difficult to escape I'd imagine. The entrance and exit was to the rear with steps that would drop down. Here's a pho...

Alpha Company Guidon

When the 6th of the 31st battalion pulled out of Ben Luc headed for deactivation, Ron Madewell was in the back of a deuce and a half and noticed the Alpha guidon still waving outside of the company HQ. He resolved that the Arvins weren't going to get it so he jumped out of the truck and rescued it. ...

Re: Know anybody in this photo?

Moss ended up an E6. This may be some HQ outfit at maybe the brigade level. Can't tell for sure but a good percentage don't seem to have CIB's.

But SSgt Moss was a real hero. He earned a DSC and a boat load of other medals.

Know anybody in this photo?

Third from left top row is Dennis Moss. He served in Charlie company end of 68 and for sometime in 69. At one juncture he became a sniper ..and a highly decorated one judging from his obituary. This may have been the Sniper School as a guess or...not. Anybody shed any light on where this was, who el...
