Hello, my name is Lori Chepke, Kenneth Gross is my dad and he spent some very important years of his life with you. I want to keep his memory alive forever and share as much as I can with my children. Can anyone direct me to the video of my dad playing the guitar and singing? I found it at one point and now I cannot seem to locate it. Any help would be appreciated. Also, I was wondering if it would be alright if I attend your next reunion? Thank you for your service. I appreciate each and every one of you.

Thank you guys for everything you did! I was a cook with HHC 5/7 cav and arrived at FSB Snuffy (Bu Gia Map) around May or June of 1970. As soon as I arrived the CO instructed me to cook a “Good meal” everyday and take it to the field. Soon on Snuffy I was know as the jungle cook. I always did my best and tried to make just a few minutes somewhat better for the guys in the field. I did not experience anything like you guys and just wanted to say thanks and welcome home!

Steve and I were in the area so we called on The Stallion and Janet. As many of you of a certain age know, you have good days and you have bad days. The Stallion has had, and continues to have, his share of bad days. BUT, we lucked out and caught Homer Jean on a really good day. He was alert, sassy, sarcastic, funny, challenging, full of stories: in short, everything you would hope his Almighty Self to be. I asked him if there was any message he wanted me to share with you and he replied: “All the Great Ones are dead, and I’m not feeling all that good either.”
As many of you also know, especially spouses and caregivers, it is important to consider the people around our Heros. Janet is doing an excellent job taking care of HJ, getting him to his medical appointments, preparing meals, cleaning up, and running the house. BUT, there are times when she is overwhelmed. It would be terrific if some of you who can relate to this situation would reach out to Janet. She would welcome your care and support.
It was a treat to have one-on-one time with The Stallion and we look forward to calling on him again in the future.

My father-in-law, Specialist K.D. Holton, 1st Cavalry, 13th Signal Battalion, was there at FSB David on 14 June 1970. He received a Bronze Star with ‘V’, Army Commendation with ‘V’, and a Purple Heart. I don’t know anything about his time there, except what the Department of the Army wrote on his Bronze Star paperwork. It said they he laid down suppressive fire that led to the survival of many of his fellow soldiers. Regrettably, he passed away July 2018. If anyone has a memory of him, I’d love to hear from you, as would his daughter. Welcome home, soldiers, and I personally am truly grateful for your service and sacrifice.

I was medic w/1st plt, Alpha Company. Great guys. We, too, spent two months in Cambodia. Came out to FSB Exodua. I took pictures of Bn Change Of Command ceremony on July 5, 1970. I think General Casey was there. So was Sec Of Army Resor. Gen Casey died two days later in chopper crash.

I am Tim (Salty) Brown’s little brother. I just found out about Leigh’s passing and how much it hurt him inside to have seen my brother die. For any of you that feel like you are to blame please do not blame yourselves over his death. Unfortunately it is part of war and some do not get to come back and restart their lives. I was 12 when it happened and even 49 years later I get tears in my eyes when I remember him. He was a very good big brother to me and he is always treasured in my heart for that. One day I would love to come to one of your reunions and meet some of you that had a chance to meet my brother. Thank you for your service.
