- For thirty seven
years I was wondering what happen to my friend. We met in AIT and was shipped
to Viet Nam, we were in the same company in the 4th Infantry Div. I had to
leave the Country early so I lost contact.
I was searching the internet for Army friends and did not thank of this one.
Late 2004 I typed in his name and was suprised that I got a hit now I have
an address and a phone number.
I was shaking
like a leaf while the phone was ringing, his mother answered and I ask for
him after explaining who I was. She told me to call back because he was away
so when I got him it was like I was talking to him as if we had never been
seriously hurt several times in Viet Nam so I had to start from the beginning
of our meeting. I sent photos of us and little stories with the pictures,
as soon as he received the pictures he shared them with his mother and we
have been in contact ever since December 2004.

- The first reunion
in 40 years for the crew of the U.S.S. Parle DE-708 was quite an experience.
We all met in Jacksonville Florida in March 2005. It took awhile for us to
recognize each other after all these years, but it only took a day once we
got used to how we all changed and it seemed only a day had passed since met
last saw each other.
found out that we can no longer take the long nights out anymore and we were
all in bed by 9 PM! We plan on staying in touch from now on and will be holding
another reunion in a few years. Thanks VetFriends for your help!

- I had this
real good friend in viet nam , it made being far away from home a little easier.
everything together and when our time was up I flew back to Philly with him
for a few days. I left and lost contact with him, from time to time I would
try to find him but had no luck.
year after 34 years I found him on a veterans web site. We plan on meeting
soon and I can`t wait. So keep looking and don`t give up God bless all, brothers

- It had been
over 30 years since I had seen any of the 4th platoon, Co. B, 4th/21st, Americal
Division from Vietnam (1971). Thank goodness for the Internet. With the help
of the search engines almost all of the members of 4th platoon were located.
Each time someone was found, more info was obtained on others. Each 'first
contact' was so thrilling and filled with emotion. 15 of us met in the spring
of 2004. What a great time we had. We were all a little grayer, a little heavier,
but the faces were there...and the voices. Plans are to do it again and many
that couldn't come to the first plan to come to the second! Brothers indeed!
