Cindy and I received a Christmas card from Janet Rushing last week. She notified us that Dennis Rushing(68/69) passed away on Oct 4, 2020. He served in the 2nd plt. and attended serveral reunions. She stated that he had been very ill over the last 2 years and the doctors felt the illness came from transfusions he received after being shot in the stomach while serving in Vietnam. They had a small military service at the Naiional Cemetery in Wilmington NC His obituary is online at Wilmington Funeral and Cremation Wimington NC

Hello everyone!

This is Bonita - Danny's girlfriend. I'm checking in for Danny who is always rushing around helping his customers. Even with the Covid-19 shutdown(s) in Northern California he has been busier than ever helping others with medical equipment. We are looking forward to coming to the reunion in October 2021.

Hello,
My father is Peter Andriacchi and I believe his dates of service in Vietnam were Oct 67 - Oct 69.

I found this card in his wallet stating he was a member of the Charlie Company, 3RD BN, 22ND Infantry Association in 2017.

Sadly, my dad passed on November 24, 2020. He suffered for many, many years after a really terrible stroke, and a soon to follow broken heart after the passing of his wife Linda. Shortly after learning of his ailing kidneys he opted for hospice care. My brother and I were fortunate enough to be there for him and to be his strength during that time.

He never spoke much about the war to us, or anyone really. I know he never forgot any of you. He took the loss of his best friend, Fred, really hard and it was something he carried heavily on his heart for the whole of his life.

Depending on when you were in contact with Pete, he may not have joined any reunions because from his stroke he had aphasia. He could read and understand what people were saying but he couldn’t speak. It truly frustrated him and it drove him further into isolation within his own thoughts. He also struggled with some paralysis. He never really connected socially with anyone from that point on and that was around 2014. But also, I know, as is the same for many war veterans, he had great sadness and anxiety when it came to war memories so it may have just been too hard for him.

I've just been trying to piece a few things together about his time in Vietnam so if anybody knows my dad I'd love to hear from you either via email or on his caring bridge site https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/peteandriacchi.

I have found a small photo album and some other pictures of his time in Vietnam. Though they aren't in the best condition, I can't help but wonder if they would better serve members of this group. I'd be happy to mail them to one of you.

Wishing you all the best,

Kristen Andriacchi

All, Sorry to report that Mike Root died yesterday, 11-23-20. MIke attended several of our reunions but was never in C co in Nam. He served as a platoon leader in A and D co's 67-68. But of course he knew some of our officers and men too. He always enjoyed our reunions and if I could put a picture in this email I know many of you would remember him. He was one of those guys that alwayus stayed in great shape, never had an ounce of fat on him. But he came down with a very rare disease that ruined his body awhile back, and he couldn't attend anymore reuions. Agent Orange related??? who knows? But it's sad no matter what the cause.

Good times (pool) & bad (Parrots Beak). I will be there & probably bringing a few additions. Yes, they are Infantry. Stay Safe & Healthy.

Waren Orr is listed on our website as KIA on 5-12-1968. If you want to see the circumstances involving his death, get on the internet and list "The Battle of Kham Duc". Warren was a Captain on his 3rd tour of duty when his C-130 was shot down while evacuating civilians from a Special Forces camp that was being overrun in the northern part of South Vietnam. Warren originally went to VN as an enlisted man in 1963 and later became an officer. His remains were not found until 1993 and were positively identified in 2007. Capt. Orr is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

Mostly for 67-68 guys. I recently learned that Arthur Elliot from Bayside NY died in 2005. He's on our October 67 company roster and I tried contacting him yrs ago with no success.,For some reason he never respoonded to my phonecalls or letters sent.

Still, he was one of us and should be added to our deceased list.
