40 year anniversary - God Bless those we left behind

Fall in. Answer up. Be accounted for. Post a memory, photo, greeting or question. If nothing else post that you are still alive because some of us are likely to be glad you did.

40 year anniversary - God Bless those we left behind

Postby Randyw » Mon Jan 12, 2009 8:38 pm

To those who still can, remember those young men we were all once. Brave, selfless, committed to each other, and dedicated to coming home. Sometimes, the best laid plans do go astray,so once a year, I try and spend some quality alone time and remember one day in a life I can only remember, and also remember I am only here today due to the extraordinary heroism of those who did not come home as well as those who left much on that battlefield on January 12th, 1969. Welcome home my brothers, God Bless America.

I have talked to several men (Randy included) who survived that awful night in 1969. Many brave and courageous acts were performed that night in order for those who survived to survive. The men who survived will have to deal with those horrors of war until the day that they leave this world.

This loss of life (6 from 1st platoon and 3 from 2nd platoon), along with the 5 men from 3rd platoon lost to an ambush on 9/26/68 were the greatest single day losses of life experienced by Delta Company during the Viet Nam War.
