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.

Something I found today from 2005

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...

Amazon will let you read some of it online before purchase. Since the body bag story is his bread and butter story it shouldn't be hard to find it early on if he includes it.

My other attached to unit in Vietnam has a facebook page and the "infusion" program was mentioned and how it affected the original group that came over together to Vietnam. In the 3/506 in 1967, the Army suddenly ..or maybe not suddenly... realized that if everyone in a battalion, less cas...
