Post by: bulldurham48 on February 13, 2017, 07:38:32 PM
I was wounded on Christmas Eve 1967 on a small Company operation, was medevaced by the sqdns little bubble copter right by the side  tank Mike 23 an taken to hospital at base camp. Was awarded a purple heart but never received it before I left the company be end of Mar 67. I know it came down to unit because Bob McNeal told me about it when I returned to Mike co in the first week of 1969, an he ask me if I had received it, he was still there as an SSG.If anyone can help me I would like to have it. Already 100% VA disabled so it is just for me and my memories.Thanks for any help. ALLONS

My father was also wounded on the same day in 67. He is no longer with us.  He wore his Black Horse proudly.  Thank you for your sacrifice.  My father was Timothy S Nye Sr.
