Andy Bruecker was the very first C322 grunt that I talked to after returning to the world
after many years. Actually it was Bill who first called me one day in either 1990 or 1991.

I was completely shocked to receive a call from anyone that day, as many of us were by
Bill. I asked him how he got my name and he told me Andy. After talking to Bill and receiving Andy's phone # I had to call immediately. We were very close in Nam as we had a very long chat. I had arrived at the beginning of 1968, but Andy already had been there about six months.

He was 3rd platoon and our M60 gunner. He asked me to either keep the belts going for him or he would, so I did the feeding. I think I need to write my next session headlining Andy. I have a lot to say about this great guy and feel a bit lost that he is now gone.

We are dwindling ever so steady gentlemen. It hurts.

ALL, I remember Andy Bruecker came to one reunion at least. My gut feeling is that it was San Antonio, but it might have been St louis too. He got to Dau tieng after I was gone, so I didn't know him then.

The roster says 3rd plt 67-68, and unfortunately not many of those guys were found way back in 1991 for San Antonio. And I'm afraid Andy didn't see many of his friends there, which is a shame.

I'm just hoping he had other contact with guys he knew, phone calls or letters, or maybe even a visit.

When we were in the hot sun and torrential rains of Vietnam you brothers lent me cash so I could buy a drink with ice. I was never able to repay you. You also put up with my learning on the job leadership. I have not forgotten you even if I have forgotten some of your names. I hope some of you are accessing this site from heaven above.

4-17-21 - will be the 46th Anniversary of the Fall of Cambodia - 10 days later 4-27-75 - .Saigon Fell - and the Rest is History, You may remember on April 10th, 1975 - President Ford pleaded with Congress - to keep the promise made at the Paris Peace Accord on 1-27-1973 - by helping re-supply South Vietnam if North Vietnam failed to live up to its Agreement. North Vietnam did not keep its Agreement - and our Congress did not either - resulting in the Fall of Cambodia and South Vietnam.

You probably will not hear or see anything in the News about this - except on this site. Bruce Herschensohn wrote a Book about this - entitled "An American Amnesia"

Look forward to seeing you in October at Ft Benning. Gary D

Happy Vietnam Veterans Day MFS! Kind of a sad day as did not see or hear from another veteran from Nam even at my favorite bar! All to old are gone just like the the world war two vets! My dad at 95 is a vet and still going strong! Not one vet period from any conflict! That might be a good thing! Just have not checked in here in awhile and just wanted to say I am doing well here in the Missouri Ozarks and still raising cattle horses and sheep and living the good life! Celebrating alone but still raising hell! Good luck brothers and keep thinking about the ones we left behind that could have had great lifes! Over and Out!
