Comments: On the kia by date listing for c company there are no listings for 9 March 1969. I,m not being critical but a friend of mine, Larry Dale Matheny was kia on that date. From what I can tell he was assigned to c company 1st/20th. There are 3 other individuals not listed also. I've looked at sites for Americal on the web for a few years and can't find anything about him on any of the sitreps, morning reports, after action reports,etc. I was wondering if through your contacts you could find out something or steer me in the right direction. Thankyou Glen Daly

Our MEMORIES page has a link to Charlie Company's KIAs and to a list of those we know who have died since Vietnam. Another helpful link is to the VIRTUAL WALL. This is where we found Glen's friend from 4/21 of 11th Brigade. The Virtual Wall has information about all those named on the Wall in DC and several now have pictures included that have been submitted. A very good site for finding information!

Comments: James Causey called me and he was with Charlie Company 1/20th. His phone number is 407-463-2039. July 68 to July 69. I am with Delta Company and was trying to make contact with his Charlie Company brothers. I hope someone will call him.

Comments: So sorry to hear about the passing of Sgt. Joe Grimes. I knew him well but only briefly during Task Force Barker. Two of my friends and I hauled supplies from Chu Lai to LZ Dottie while the Task Force was there. I was talking to my friend just the other day and he asked me if I had ever heard from Grimes. I told him I would try to find him and just found your website today. Quite a shock to hear that Grimes passed earlier this year. Best wishes for good health to all who see this and may God bless you. Shelton Beach

It does my heart good to see that all of you that I came to know still have your personalities that made you individuals and cherished members of Charlie Company. The time and the war didn't take this away from you all. It just proves what great men you were then and now. Next year I will be slicing golf balls with you all, not bringing up the rear :)).

Comments: I was a truck driver. I delivered Gas and water to LZ Liz from Firebase Bronco. There was a guy by the nick name of Sam the Sham shot on my truck while passing Duc Fo. My truck used to have the name El Chicano on the front of the hood. My truck hit a land mine on the road to Lz Liz. At that time I was taken off my route and placed on another assignment. I had a lot of friends from from all the companies because while the soldiers would hitch rides to Bronco and Liz on my truck. Two of the guys that always hung out with me when they were in the rear were Garcia and Rivera from Delta CO. I have not been in any contact with anyone from the time I was there but I am always thinking about everyone there.

Comments: The mission of the American Veterans Arts and Crafts Gallery is to celebrate the veteran. We celebrate them by show casing their art or crafts to the public.
We want every veteran to feel that he or she has a home here at A.V.A.A.C.G. no matter their skill level or their passion. We know where they have walked, we know where they feared for their very life and soul and we know where they have cried.
We will do all we can do to help them on their journey to peace and home.
You are invited to join us at www.veteransartsandcrafts.com if you have ANY talent from A - Z, please feel welcome to contact me at any time, Jay December 24, 2012

Comments: Tony. The SP Pack consisted of many items. The one I always got on to was the Sewing Kit. It would set up an "Amazing Meal In a Ville". Mama Son did a Great Job on the Chicken & Veggies when cooked Correct! the BBQ I did was a Disaster. Shot with an M-79 in 1969. boot laces, cig's, paper, pen, chew, pipe & cleaners, shavers and cream, cigars? and other stuff. Running out of room on this page, I think. To be continued in June 2011. God Willing.

Note: It was great to have you guys in the field with us... I know we appreciated your teams and felt much safer with you guys around! One of our 2nd platoon Lt's, Bud "Peanut" Vincent told me he came by your "office" at Bronco to thank you on his way back to the "world". Several of our photo albums have pictures of the scout dogs and handlers. We thought a lot of you guys. Thanks!

Comments:
I went to school and worked at the USPS with a Charlie Comp. grunt by the name of DANNY ZEIGLER. I talked to his dad and found that DAN was at Ft. CARSON, CO when he learned of a unit being formed in HAWAII, so he put his name in.
DANNY was a good surfer, when surf was up, DANNY was there, didn't matter what day of the week it was. He was wounded in Feb.1968.
Last time I talked to Dan was in front of the SANTA BARBARA VA clinic. His girl friend at the time was from GUAM, and were going back to there.
I served with A 1/20th, joined the com. on LIZ. Have met and had dinner at previous Division reunions with a Charlie comp. I remember his first name as Bill, he would always sit with us, as he was the only Charlie there. I heard that he passed of cancer a few years back. He was a good guy and was honored that he was at our table. March 21, 2010
It was Bill Allen you met from Charlie Co at the ADVA reunions. He started the 11th Brigade site, and got Dan interested in locating Charlie Co guys. Bill passed away in July 2005 from cancer.

Comments: My Brother Kent was in an truck land mine explosion August 14th 1970 on access road to LZ Liz in Vietnam He is looking for anyone who might have information about it. He is wondering if anyone else went back out into the field. He has heard that a picture was taken of the truck as well as the hole created by the explosion. If anyone can tell him where he might find those photos it would be very helpful. He has also had been told that the explosion was a 250 lb bomb. If anyone knows the size of the bomb (there was a truck behind his) and apparently the explosion was heard at landing zone Liz. He greatly appreciates those who have called and are helping him. An additional method of contacting him is at his e-mail address which is kentthront@hotmail.com. His cell number is 701-641-9905 He is also available at 701-965-6629. Thanks for the help.

Comments: Oct.29, 1970 - Ronnie Ray was not wounded. The guy's name that was wounded was Reginald Wray. The reason I know this is that the telegram was sent to my parents, using Reginald Wray's name. My parents contacted the Red Cross and got it straightened out. Also, on the 1970 company roster, his name is spelled Reginald Vray, it should be Wray. He was from New York City, had only been in country a couple of months. I contacted Chuck Seketa - he suggested that other people needed to read the daily reports and help him get any information corrected.

Comments: Excellent site, Mike. I know you've been working "overtime" to get the Charlie Company web site up and running. Now the 1-20 has sites for HQ, A, B, C, D and E on the internet. The new Guest Book is a great addition and should enable the group to reunite with their old buddies. jkw
