Today, on Veterans Day, I want you to know that my family remembers your service and sacrifice. Your unit remains very close to our hearts because you took such great care of our Dad (Roy Flint). He was so very honored to be in your presence at the reunions he attended. Although he is gone now, please know that we still remember you! Thank you doesn't seem enough but thank you.

Guys, I hope you'll take in a Veteran's Day parade on the 11th. Watch it if you must, but walk in it if you can. That's really much more rewarding.

Then get your free veteran's meal at one of the many restaurants offering that. McCormicks is Sunday, Nov 5th for their free meal. Others do it on Veteran's day itself, some on Friday 10th, and one is Monday, 13th. Check online for all that is offered free.

Hoping you are all well. Hoping too that you're getting the Veteran's Health care and benefits you deserveYou certainly earned them.

Here in Portland Our 25th Division group walks in the parade. We always get lots of cheering, clapping, and Welcome Homes from the crowd.

Brothers and Sisters of C/3/22! Didn’t we have a great, might I say fantastic reunion last September? If you missed it, you did in fact miss one of the best. I have yet to hear any complaints whatsoever. We were honored with nine 1st time reunion attendees. I am willing to bet they will not miss another one. Terry and his committee did a great job organizing and making the reunion run like a well oiled machine. At the business meeting the attending membership chose the next reunion site to be Branson, MO. The membership also elected to keep the current command group in place. President Gary Miller, Vice President Butch Godlewski, Secretary Dave DeMaruo, Treasurer Don Snyder. Carolyn and I did as we usually do and used the reunion as an excuse (like we need one) for a vacation road trip. And boy was this a big one, we actually drove 8400 miles. Right after the reunion we visited with Rick and Joyce DeNomme to rest up a bit and then took off for the New England states. We have never been there before so it was a chance to visit a new (to us) area of this great country that we are blessed to live in. We were not disappointed for one minute. The folks we met were wonderful and the scenery was beautiful, with Maine standing out for the both of us. We (I) really enjoyed visiting the Springfield Armory in Springfield, Mass. The Armory just reeked with the awesome history as the birth place of the weapons that eventually freed us from British rule, and helped make this country the great country that it is. Carolyn had to drag me out of the place. Hope to see you in Branson!

Just wanted to thank ALL of you for the overwhelming hospitality gifted to me during the Minneapolis reunion 2017. My father Ronald Dorshak USAF 1956-1960 had planned on attending with me to honor his brother Bob KIA 25, August 1968. However Ron passed away on August 3, 2017. Having not registrered I booked my own room. I was greeted and treateded like family. My mother, also thanks each and every one of you for your service. It was an honor to meet true heroes. Pat Shine, Nick Dragon, Cuck Boyle, Don Snyder, Joe Mack, Tyrone Smith, Truman, the veteran tending bar late Friday evening! So many I can't remember. God Bless. Speacial thanks to Mrs. Joseph Mack and Don Snyder for the meal. Looking forward to seeing photo's on the site soon to mach names with faces.

Guys, Just looked up some interesting facts about our Puerto Rican brothers in arms. Since they were granted citrizenship back in WW I, they have fought honorably in every war since, including WW I. During Vietnam approximately 48,000 Puerto Ricans served in the 4 branches of our armned forces.

345 Puerto Ricans died in Vietnam, 17 were listed as MIA. These stats reflect only those born in Puerto Rico itself.

C3/22 had a good number of Puerto Ricans serve with us in Vietnam, as did the other companies of 3/22.

I'd guess it was thousands of Puerto Ricans that served in our 25th division in Vietnam.

Perhaps our C3/22 association could do something with some of our excess money to help them recover from the hurricane disaster.

Reunion 2017-------If you missed the Minneapolis reunion, you missed good one! The weather cooperated and helped make all the planned activities go off without a hitch. It was great to see so many old friends and make new ones! We also had 9 first timers that seemed to enjoy their first reunion. Some were overwelmed with how each was welcomed into our company c brotherhood. The reunion committee went on and beyond the call of duty! Until we meet again, stay well! Deeds Not Words

Guys, I heard this song today, "Green, green grass of home". I haven't heard it in years. I remember hearing it while in basecamp at Dau Tieng. Imagine the courage it takes to hear that song at night then get up in the morning and head out on another major operation.
