Good to hear from you. Thank you.

I remember your friend, Bogard, at Khe Sanh. We had a conversation when he first got to Hill 861A. I think he was killed a day later or maybe that same day.

Stay cool,

Congrats on the honor! I’m sure you represent your 2/26 buddies very well. I look forward to your forthcoming book.
Tell me more about my friend and your buddy Jack C. Bogard at Khe Sanh.
