James Anthony Tobin was born in Philadelphia, PA on Saturday the 17th of November, 1928 and died on Saturday the 17th of December, 2016 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. In Charles Boyle’s book, Absolution (https://www.amazon.com/Absolution-Charlie-Company-Battalion-Infantry/dp/0991601440), Father Tobin is quoted as saying, “Perhaps when this war is ended, we, the living will all join at some holy sepulcher of peace and talk with Andy and Jackie and Wally again. It is only then, after the many long years have dimmed your rage and softened your hearts, that you will come to know the true glory of their lives and the meaning of the deaths. They will be there waiting for us, these three, and all the others.” I pray these boys, along with his best friend, COL Awb Norris; his sister, Rita and his niece, Eileen, will be there to greet this amazing man, hand him a bourbon, and keep him laughing until the rest of his family can be reunited with him.

Remembrance of Mike Balser - by Dennis Atkins
     Mike Balser and I served together as platoon leaders under the command of Chuck Boyle. Our friendship began in '66 August when we became bunk mates during our OCS training. After OCS, as newly commissioned lieutenants, our assignments took in different directions only to be re-united again when we came down on levy for deployment to Viet Nam. Upon arriving in-country, we were fortuitously assigned to the 3rd Brigade, 25th Inf. Division in Dau Tieng. Together we fought and survived The Battle of FSB Burt, Ap Cho, The Battle of Good Friday and countless daily actions that comprised The Tet Offensive of 1968.

Oscar Cantu wrote "He was in my Platoon and my best friend in the jungle. I lead my platoon and he was behind me with the compass leading me the right direction. ...He was a wonderful person. I am sending you a picture of us in stand down.

Larry and Barb Rhodes
at Angel Fire, NM, Nov. 2016
Larry Rhodes, age 71, passed away peacefully at home in Rociada, New Mexico in the loving arms of his devoted wife Barbara, Thursday, April 13th at 10:30 a.m. He was born on November 2, 1945 in Garden City, Michigan. Larry fought a courageous 29 month battle against stage 4 gastric cancer. His strength, zest for life, and his never-give-up attitude were an inspiration to all who knew him. He was a respected and deeply loved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, brother, and friend. Larry proudly and honorably served his country as a combat medic in Vietnam (1966-1967), and his connection to his Army brothers only grew deeper and stronger through the C/3/22 Association as years passed.
Larry R. Rhodes - 11/2/1945 - 4/13/2017
