Catkiller Jim Keathly checked in and has some additional history to share. Welcome, Jim, and we look forward to seeing you in person at our next reunion:
My name is Jim Keathly, I was in the original company that arrived in Phu Bai and was assigned to the platoon in Quang Nhagi.
My home email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
My wife found the site, and I would like to get listed. Also, I noticed in the roster listing that my name along with Lt. Arnie Roebuck, Lt. Monty Price and WO Ron Fero were not listed. Monty was in Quang Nhagi. when we arrived. Ron died in a mid air collision while on a FAC mission. My last contact with any of our bunch was with Tom Batten about 15 years ago or longer. It was great seeing all the names that were listed. I would be interested in attending one of the reunions that may occur in the future. Please include me on any future notices of events.
I live in Dallas TX and am still working in the Semiconductor industry and am planning on retirement about this time next year.
