Charlie Banner

Andy's List

Andy Brower was 2nd platoon RTO and moved up to HHQ with Lt. Ronan "Gomer". At the 2008 reunion he showed us a notebook he'd kept from Vietnam that has names and line numbers.

Andy said, "I think this is everyone in Charlie Company around Oct/Nov 1969. By the time I wrote several pages in the book I must have been running out of time because I skipped first names. I did a new list every couple of days. I had to account for each person every day and call it in to the rear to let them know who was in or out of the field. If someone was wounded, KIA or going on R&R I had to call that into the "rear". Likewise they would inform me if someone was inbound to the company so all were accounted for."

The time was probably October 18-22, or November 6-13, or November 27 to December based on other records. Most first names have been added by comparing them with other lists. (124 total in Company).

Thanks Andy, for this contribution. You often hear "I don't know which platoon or squad I was in" when talking with other vets so this may help some of you. If you are not on the list but recognize your squad, please let us know even if it was before or after this time. Do you have other names you remember besides your own or have a nickname or maybe know who was squad leader? How about some squad or platoon pictures even if doesn't exactly match the time. Look for links for some from 2nd platoon and others if we receive them.
