My dear brother Daniel Lee Mullins, is always in my heart, especially on this day. I am only here, because of two steps, and fate chose to spare me or my name would be there also. But I will never forget that day as long as I live. He is always with me. Dale R. Sabine K-Trp. 3/11th ACR 1967

I just read a news article about my ex-husband on your site. His name is Ted Hendrickson, and he received the Silver Star for his actions. He is presently in the VA hospital here in Arkansas. He has had a long fight with depression, alcoholism, and various other medical and mental problems. I plan to tell him about your website. I believe he would enjoy it very much.

I would just like to say that this has been an excellent experience for me viewing your site. Although I was about 6 years old when the Vietnam war was ongoing I still remember thinking how brave and honorable those men and women over there are. I am 40 years old now and have have served in the Canadian Armed Forces for 18 years. I have completed 2 tours in the Gulf and will be heading back again in the near future. It is a different kind of jungle over there in some ways compared to Vietnam, but only veterans can understand what I am talking about and feeling. Try explaining it to civvies and they don't get it. Long comment, I know but just wanted to say thanks!

Thank you brother Bob, here's the words I wrote the night we entered Iraq.

"Our Brightest Flame"

Young men and women standing tall, On fields of battle bonding,
Terror made the towers fall, And now they are responding,

I learned so many years ago, How close they'll grow to be,
While loosing many friends they know, The cost to keep us free,

They are the hero's of our day, And bear no blame for war,
Their very life, the price some pay, Let's not forget whom for,

So if you think the war is wrong, Do not on them, lay blame,
Because of them we are strong, They are, Our brightest flame,

"DRS 2003" Dedicated to: All who serve our nation in this war on terror. Dale R. Sabine 12/13/03 K-Trp. 3/11th ACR 1967

Hey Bob! Just wanted to say 'Hi' and thank you for updating my email address. A young man from York University (Canada)surfed onto your site and was struck by my photo on 'Contributors'. He's a film student and asked me permission to use my photo for his 20-minute short film. Now the film is ciculating film festivals. My photo is used as a framed photo of one character in the film who is away in Vietnam during 1969. I get about 10 seconds of fame in the film. Isn't that a hoot? Anyway, keep up the good work on the web page. Paul

WHO CAN HELP ME ?  To update our family tree I'm looking for help.  I'm searching for Information of a former soldier, stationed in Bad Hersfeld, Germany in the period from about 1958 to about 1961 at the Mc Pheeters Barracks 3rd Squad 14th Armed Cavalery.  The only Information I have is the last name " HUITT " and his adress after April 1961 was probably somewhere in the State of Kentucky (possibly Fort Knox).  I would appreciate all the Information that I can get if possible and a short answer.

Thank you very much Patricia Schmidt.
My E-Mail adress is: n.u.p.schmidt@t-online.de
