David Smith KIA 1-2-68. >>Loel Hunt
Two pictures sent from Randy Wehner. We need your help with identification! Here is part of what Randy wrote:
Ö pic is of, I think, Sgt Dubois [it's a yes, he's been identified]. I need other 3rd plt members from the summer of 67 to help me out. On the back of the pic I had wrote (my squad colored guy is now out of action got shot on chest and hand. The guy with out shirt closest also.) I do know the tent is just south of the command center. I also have a pic of one of my squad members with out shirt that needs to be I.D. Possible K.I.A. Time has erased a lot. I think if everyone would bring their pics to Colorado and set up tables by time plt and year we could find these Heroes. Some of these guys have no family left except our band of brothers. If we could find out where they went to high school we could go to libraries and get yearbook pics.
Bob Bessette sent this picture and description (left):
This photo was taken in front of the headquarters area in Tay Ninh in early 1970. It was an awards ceremony. I'm guessing the guy
on the left is Sylvester (Ellis). Next to him I think is Larry "Tennessee" Lowrance. Below him is Aaron Tilley. The guy with his arms
folded is Jimmy Wright. The guy touching his nose is Bob "Doc" Breault. The last guy on the right is Lt. Schmidt.

This was part of 3rd platoon at FSB Washington near Tay Ninh in March, 1970. A couple of short weeks later, Erdman was KIA at the Straight Edge Woods. Meadows and Lt. Schmidt were both wounded in the same action and medevaced out of country. Sgt. Daniels was later seriously wounded in the Cambodia friendly fire arty incident. This picture is on my screen saver at work. I've been able to tell others about the great unit that I served with. The feedback I get is always positive.
Thanks for the great work that you, Bill and the others do on behalf of Charlie Company. Without you guys I wouldn't have been able
to stay in contact with all my Viet Nam buddies. Jim Cunningham

This is a picture of Fred Chitwood (standing on right) in the summer of í68. Fred was KIA in August. He is pictured with a bunch of
1st Platoon guys. We were in Dau Tieng pulling some perimeter guard and ambushes. On this day we marched across the base to the Latherite
pit to zero in weapon. Sniper fire ended that exercise. Anyone recognize themselves? Please let us know.

This is a photo of J.C. Dyer, snapped while serving with Charley Co. My thinking is, it would be more appropriate for the KIA Memorial

WE DID IT! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED as far as the pictures go.
We have been looking for pictures of those killed in Vietnam from our company for a lot of years and getting one of Albertis Williamson,
KIA 2-10-68, completed our mission of getting all 95 of them. Rick DeNomme, after a lot of diligent work and follow-up, corresponded
with Alburtis's sister Loretta Nelson who was able to locate her one picture of her brother and send it to Rick.
From Rick: I have made crosses of all 95 of our HEROES and have their picture attached to each. I put them up in my yard every Memorial
Day. After getting the crosses made and the pictures attached to them it started brothering me that Albertis Williamson did not have
a picture. I decided to see what I could do about it and started the research process, after all this time I would like to report
that I have succeeded in getting a picture of Bert (as his family called him).Bill, After working on this project I sure do appreciate
what you and others have done to locate these HEROES of ours.
Here are a few pictures Ruben Sanchez wanted to share with you. He says: I remember at one of the reunions I saw pictures of C/2/22
(Mechanized) that joined up with C/3/22 in Vietnam. That's the unit I came from as well as others of the basic training cadre. The
pictures are from 1964 & 1965. I thought you might get a kick out of seeing the pictures. You will see some of our personnel carriers
at our barracks, some crossing the Columbia River in Yakima and a couple of pictures in C/3/22.

Picture on left - On the far left, just barely in the picture, is Dennis Krause, my RTO; I (Mac Reppert) am in the foreground second
from the left and to the right of Denny; I donít know who the guy in the jungle hat is, but I donít think he was a chu hoi Ė I think
he might have been someone from the BN S-3 shop; and the guy on the far right was our CO Jim Hansard (later KIA). The picture was
taken by acting PAO PFC Herb Burdett just after a successful ambush my platoon triggered on a trail at the edge of the Michelin Rubber
on an NVA convoy of a dozen ox carts loaded with supplies, just North of the village of Dau Tieng in the first or second week of August
1968. Records recovered from the body of the NVA Commanding Officer indicated an escort force of 150, although there can be no certain
knowledge of this. Picture submitted by Mac Reppert

Jim Dice, Dennis Krause, and Michael Dragan have requested these photos be posted on the website.
From Jim Dice: The Photos are C Co. guys from 1968. My guess is May - Dec. I bet somebody can ID them fast.
From Michael Dragan: Denny Krause found some old Vietnam pictures of when I was on R and R - Do you know who these guys are?
Thomas Boone 68, Identified himself.
Jonathon Jones is the son of Roy Jones C/3/22. Jonathon recently posted on our guest book about his dad (Roy). Roy came to us Jan. 2, 1967. Roy was in the 3rd Plt. and was wounded late August early Sept. Unable to return to the field he was assigned to be the Captains driver for the rest of his time. Roy was good buddies with Roy Costanzo and according to his son took his death hard. Jonathon is curious to see if anyone remembers Roy and maybe has some pictures they could share.
