Col. Gearin had these photos

Over the years there have been monthly collages. Most saluted different contributors to the Album. This new forum is just to keep the collages and remarks about them from being totally forgotten.

Col. Gearin had these photos

Postby Niner Alpha » Mon Oct 09, 2017 11:46 am

The family of the last Battalion Commander Lt. Col. Cornelius Gearin, contributed some photos the colonel came home with. They seem to be mostly from the Brigade photos taken for the Go Devil and other publications. The remarks you see hand written were on the photos in his collections.

Ben Luc base camp was the last for the 6th of the 31st. It was actually dedicated to Captain Keaton of Delta Company who was KIA in January of 1970. Most of us missed the dedication and just called it Ben Luc. There was an actual plaque somewhere with Captain Keaton's name on it. I never remember seeing it.... but it was there.
