forwarded message:

Fellow Blackhorse troopers,
It is with great sadness that I write to you at this time.  Our dear friend Chuck Schmidt passed away on November 11, 2007, at approximately 11:11pm.  How fitting that a great soldier, leader and president of our organization would pass away on Veterans Day.  His wife Bonnie, son Garrett and daughter Jill were with him.
Chuck was diagnosed with cancer in mid June.  Surgery was not possible.  The prognosis was that it was not curable but it was treatable.  Chuck had one chemo treatment prior to the 11th ACVVC reunion in September.  Two weeks after the reunion Chuck developed an infection that spread throughout his body.  He was being treated for the infection and was recovering but unfortunately had a setback nearly two weeks ago.
I spoke with Chuck on Friday (11/09/07).  Several have talked with him recently including Ollie, Frank Cambria, Steve Page, Dave Tessier, Bill Suhre and several others.   
Despite Chucks condition he still wanted to remain very much involved with this organization.  This was his life blood and his passion.  We tried to keep him up-to-date as often as possible.
A memorial service will be held in Colorado Springs with interment in his home town in North Dakota.  Final arrangements for date and time are being made.  We'
Chuck was a great leader, not only during his military career, but as the president of this organization.  He was also a friend to many.  We will miss him.
Till we meet in Fiddlers Green......

You seem to already have this info:


Since he was with this unit less than a week, you might not get that many leads here. But, maybe somebody can point you in the right direction, since you probably have his personal info, as to how to get details of his other service from the government...

Dad, any ideas? Anyone else, I know that a lot of you have written the army for medals, benefits, etc... would they have the info  about his additional service?

You may have noticed some changes to the message board. The fact is, the old one was pretty outdated, and was a prime target for hackers, and spammers, who registered about 10 new members a week... this new board has some nice features that you will all be able to take advantage of.

I'll also try to update the rest of the site soon.

Good luck, and Happy New Year!

as you've probably noticed, the forums were recently attacked by a spammer, or spammers... i think i got rid of most of the spam messages. in addition, unregistered users will no longer be able to reply to message posts. also, in order for a user to be registered, the administrator will approve all new members. i'm sorry if this makes the site even more difficult to use, but it needs to be done.

if you notice any spam messages i missed, please let me know about it.[/b]

Well as the highest KIA rate MOS for vietnam is the 11E 27% it would seem that being an 11B was safer maybe they should get the ribbon and we the  CAB.

this website has the stats to support that:

I don't know the origin or the reason of it's use with the 11th cavalry, but "Allons" is French for "Let's Go!" .. it's also the first word in the French national anthem...

the 11ACVVC website had 2 Firestone's listed in their master roster. one was a SP4, this one was a Captain:

HHT, 3/11

it was last updated 9 years ago though. but a search on whitepages.com returned one listing for a Dennis Firestone in Shelbyville, KY. I'll send it to you in a private message.
