Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

I just posted this comment to the YouTube episode. Any "thumbs up" would be appreciated, and make these "facts" more believable. Urban, we of the 6th/31st, 9th Infantry Division, Vietnam 1968 - 1970, would ask that you please provide us with the names of any 6th/31st men with who...

Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

Niner...we all know that Urban was never placed in a body bag and flown to Lai Khe, but did you ever wonder what happened to the soldier that Brian Leet "actually" found alive in a body bag? I wonder if he survived?

Looks like my email to 29 Alpha Company men from 68, 68/69 have some men looking at the YouTube link. Prior to my email, the YouTube link had 73 Views...it now has 84. There are also now 4 "thumbs up" on my comment. Wonder how long before the first "thumbs down" appears. :)

Re: Want a Lowe's discount?

Where I live, both Home Depot and Lowe's "used" to have the same plan; however, about 2 years ago Home Depot changed. Old plan: If you simply had a VA card both gave you a 10% discount. Heck.....I was once given a 10% discount at Lowes when I was wearing an Army t-shirt...they asked if I h...

Re: The Branson group shots

Sadly it appears that the 2015 Branson Reunion will probably go down as the last Reunion to have had a truly large number of 6/31st Vietnam vets in attendance. I have a strong suspicion that the majority of the folks reported as attending the 2016 31st Regiment Association 100th Anniversary reunion ...
