From Dennis Sigler: Went up to Mt. Soledad veterans memorial today & took some photos for you to see with a little scope on the size,
etc. Also visited some other plaques there of Eisenhower, Reagan, Jimmy Stewart and several other heroes of the past. On our plaque,
I touched the names of Alton Shedd & Gary Lininger. I look forward to our official dedication in October. Stay well & proud brothers,

Message from Chuck Boyle:
Pat Shine and I are thinking about writing a story, a more complete picture of Glenn Nishizawa based on his service to Charlie Company. In that regard, I am soliciting any memories of him, in writing, (email or otherwise) from anyone who knew him. Perhaps little vignettes or tales of their association with him.
I sent a letter and a copy of Absolution to Glen Nishizawa’s sister, Lynn Hensley, who Magnet ( Norm Nishikubo) met at his gravesite she replied within a few days and was deeply moved and ever so grateful to hear from me. She mentioned that the family had set up a scholarship fund in Glenn’s name in 1969, and have been awarding $1000.00 Scholarships to deserving High School Seniors since that time.
So, the ball is rolling on this little episode, started by our brother in arms Norman Nishikubo. (Ruben Sanchez found the cemetery and Don Snyder and Ruben found and photographed the gravesite for the NL and website).
From Dwight Read, C/3/22 1968: I found these 2 pictures from June 1 – July 4 era. Col. Flint was with us (check photo). I was with 4 Deuce Mortar crew. Col. Flint was throwing grenades from his chopper at the NVA. When Dau Tieng was hit July 4, we all went back. Our mission to stop the NVA from shooting 122 mm rockets into Saigon every Friday morning at sun-up. I think the hold Battalion was there. All this could be debatable.
