We asked and more guys agreed that the one in the rear with the hat was Joe Nett, affectionately know as "Yogi," may he Rest in Peace.

Look in War Stories for more pictures.

One of the many drawings by Dennis Sigler, 66-67
From Dave Gehr (65-67): I was on a site called Boots on the ground artwork… They have many Vietnam, and other era, artwork. Some
were photos of patches with military stuff. I thought they were interesting so tried to make up a few of my own. They did not turn
out to bad but I am not very good with the photography part.
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 [San Diego Reunion
2015.] Stay well & proud brothers, Dennis
Note: Look on Heroes '68 and KIA pages for the pictures the family wanted of Robert Dorshak.

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.

Thanks to Dave Gehr we now have 3 pictures from the San Antonio 1991 Reunion and a picture with better color of the 1988 Minneapolis Reunion. They are on the "Pictures" page under Reunions.
NOK Mark Dorshak sent this photo of Alonzo Collier (right) with his uncle KIA Bob Dorshak (center), and 3rd Platoon Medic Joe Senteno (left.)
We got a heartfelt email (below) from NOK Mark Dorshak. He writes about his experience when he came to the Minneapolis reunion, and sent a picture (right) of Alonzo Collier to replace the high school photo that was on our KIA pages. Thank you Mark!
Jim Dice sent these pictures of Glenn Nishizawa KIA 5-31-68. They came from Glenn's sister who would like to know who the guys in the hooch with Glenn are.

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).
