What Have You Done Since Nam

Married 3 times (36 years to present wife, Lynn). Worked for Western Electric for a few brief years after discharge. Moved to manufacturing at entry level in flexible packaging and worked my way up to Information Systems Manager spending 31 years in this business until disabled.

Lived in Memphis, TN after discharge until being transferred to Edinburgh, IN after Memphis plant closed in 1989. Have lived in Columbus, IN ever since.

Was active softball player for 35 years until 2 back surgeries. Also has to sell my Harley after the surgeries because I could no longer hold the bike up.

Don't drink or smoke any more. I am a born again Christian and spend all my time with family now. Am legal guardian of Logan (grandson) since the day he was born. He is a straight "A" student and has been accepted into the accelerated, global pathways program going into the 7th grade. In addition to his normal subjects he has been moved into 1st year high school Algebra and is also taking 1st year high school French. Then after 2 years of French he will be moving into 1st year Spanish in the 9th grade. That is in addition to playing on the golf team. I'm extremely proud of him. I really missed the boat on his mother but God gave me a second chance with my grandson.

Memories of Nam

Having had the honor of serving with the bravest men I have ever seen. I never measured up to Charlie company standards but at least I can say I had the honor of serving along side Charlie company soldiers.

My two memories that really stay with me every day of my life are the faces of those KIA and WIA and the fact that not contributing as much as the rest I can live with the fact I did my best.

What Platoon and Squad Were You In?

I am still thinking about the wonderful men in Charlie company that allowed me to make that reunion. It was great seeing you and yes that is you behind Harrington. He saved my life the day we got caught in that nasty flood when we lost two men drowned. Had he not reached back and grabbed me by the scruff of my neck. Great men I served with, you ncluded.

I just wanted to let you know how much it meant to me when you sat down with me for a short conversation. When we finished I actually held my head higher because you made me feel, after all these years, that I did it right. It was important coming from you because you were my platoon leader and knew who you could depend on. Thank you, Terry
