We are all busy and can't help wondering if we will be alive tomorrow. Same as Vietnam. Different enemy. Let's seize our courage, take precautions, and fight our demons so we can be with our brothers one more time.

Thank you for encouraging words concerning the newsletter. Take notes during the reunion so you can write somethig to share with the group. Close up photos would help as well.

I am watching for your name on the registration list. How can you be looking at the guestbook and not signed up for the reunion?

Remy

Guys, at almost 77 yrs old now I count my blessings every morning. My health is still pretty good. Good enough that I can do my volunteer work at my food pantry, which keeps me busy.

But I count my blessings too every time I hear one of these stories about Crook, FSB Burt, FSB Buell, etc. I thank God I was never in one of those terrible attacks. I can only imagine it, and it scares the hell out of me.

God bless all of you that endure it.

Ditto Jim Cunningham's comments. We were on high alert that night at Crook. We shot over 5000 rounds with the M60 and 50 cal. I remember checking out the bodies the next morning. Some missing heads or half a head with the brains spilled out and others looking like Swiss cheese with many bullet holes in them. They threw the bodies in the river nearby. We recon'd the area and found bunkers with ammo and supplies for the attack. All in a day's work.

Just got the sad news about the passing of Ronnie "Carolina" Evans, a heroic member of the 69-70 Point Squad.

When a Sapper Squad of NVA tried to infiltrate FSB Crook in Dec. 69, Carolina was about 75 yards out on a 3-man LP. He heard the sounds of the Sappers and opened up with his M-16. All 8 were killed in a prelude of what was to be a masssive NVA ground attack. They were armed with AK's, grenades, satchel charges and bangalore torpedoes. The NVA prudently decided to call off the ground attack.

On Jan. 30, 1970, Charlie, Bravo and Alpha companies were called into the Thien Ngon area on the Cambodian border to confront a suspected battalion size force of NVA. We walked into ambush and several guys were wounded. Carolina suffered a serious calf wound from a .30 caliber machine gun. After being dusted off to the hospital, the medics couldn't find an exit wound. They perfomed x-rays of his leg and found that the round had traveled up his entire leg an lodged in his hip. Charlie Co. suffered no KIA's in the action, but the next day a Huey was shot down, killing all 8 on board.

One thing that I remember about Carolina was at the 2011 DC Reunion. We ran into the some ROTC cadets at the VN Memorial. He was wearing shorts and the cadets, seeing his leg wound, asked him about his VN experience. He said that if he had it it to do over again, he would still go to Vietnam.

We lost a great man. Rest in Peace.
