Jim allowed me to upload his photos of the reunion. I set the ones I uploaded in an album under his name.

One thing I noted in the photos

Whoever assembled the Regiment history in the 4/31st wasn't paying close attention to the heraldry of the Octofoil.

There is a difference between "sun" and "son". No big deal I guess. Heraldry is only fairytale stuff anyway.

Quote stolen from the WWII 9th Division site.



Meaning of the Octofoil

The OCTOFOIL is a device that dates back to the 15th Century when it was customary for each son to have an individual mark of distinction. Under the rules of heraldry there are eight foils or positions. Heraldic rules gave the OCTOFOIL to the ninth son, a device symbolic of his being surrounded by eight brothers.

The 9th Infantry Division insignia is a red and blue octofoil; a design of eight petals with a white center. Red and blue designate colors of an infantry division headquarters flag; white is for the numbers used in divisional flags. The circular background is olive drab.

The subdued variant consists of olive drab and black for less visibility to be worn on field uniforms.

Picture Posting

We all might remember who we served with back in 'Nam, but it's now been over 35 yerars or more and these posted photo's are not all that identifiable. It would help more if the pictures had names and locations attached so that one might know what or whom the photo is showing. :?
Other than that it looks like everyone had an enjoyable time at this year's reunion! :)

I just now opened the comments up to anybody on any of the reunion albums. Just have to hold my breath and watch for a few hundred spam attacks to show up now for Viagra ads and such. You want to volunter to help me moderate the albums I'll open them all up again?

I guess I need a better plan to protect the album from span in order to open up the comments to direct posts. All posts anybody wants to make will have to come through me for the time being.
