Already 100% VA disabled so it is just for me and my memories.Thanks for any help. ALLONS

Dear M Co. 3rd Squadron troopers of 1969:

I saw on the 11thACVVC website that Barry has died just recently. 

I wish I could remember him, but it has been too long ago for me.

If you want to convey your condolences to his daughter, plz. go to the website stated above.  Scroll down until you see FUNERAL HONOR GUARD on the right of a table of menus.

 Cry

I found SSG Cruz through his family.  He is alive and well, living in Puerto Rico.  I have received a few emails from members of his family. Was glad to hear something about him.

Dear Members,

I just by chance reviewed some of my posts on this site.  I can not believe and ashamed of what I have written in 2004.  I humbly apologize to all whom I may have insulted: especially the officers.  I do not understand why I wrote such garbage.  I can only say that 2004 was a very bad year for me personally with my PTSD.

I had the best 1st Lt. in Vietnam with Peter Alberico.  I couldn't have possibly had a better officer in  charge of me.  Like I stated yesterday,  I was very blest  in having served with the men that I did.  They were all honorable.

I am doing 1,000 % better now with my PTSD since I found the right medication to be on.  This is the best time of the life.  I have so many gifts from the Lord.  He has carried me throughout all my life and has constantly covered my back.

Again, my outmost deepest apologizes for being the ass I was then.  I hope you will all forgive me.

Allons,
Frenchie

Dear M Company Trooper of 1969:

Do any of you remember the names of TC. "Red"  and his driver, "Sugar Bear"?  The loader was Lonnie Burris.  We were all in a firefight in the Fall of 1969.  In this battle a medivac chopper was blown out of the sky.  I was there in Lance Alsup's tank.  I was sure that both Red  and Sugar Bear were killed that day.  Am I wrong in my recollection.

I was checking on a the 11 ACVVC  web site for our KIA's. Though I do not know their true names, I was looking for KIA's in the Fall of "69" on the same day.  I could not find a match under these perimeters.  I checked the Oct. "69" unit roster and none of the names on the KIA list match to the names on our roster.

I am wondering if  Red & Sugar Bear were overlooked somehow.  If so, I would like to see them included in the KIA list and not forgotten.  I haven't even after all these years.

I have been wrong many times in my life, I hope someone will kindly inform me that they are not forgotten and on the Wall.  I would appreciate their names,please.

I want to say how honored I was to serve with such honorable men as you all in 1969.  I am proud of how we all conducted ourselves.

With deep respect...ALLONS

Frenchie
