I know a couple of vets that can barely remember their names, but they can sure spout out their DEROS without thinking too long. I too landed at Ft. Lewis and the first thing that struck me was all the brightly colored cars and a woman wheeling a baby carriage around....By the way Steve, welcome home!

Coming home from a war zone will always be memorable to any vet that served in the armed forces. I will never forget the day that I left Viet Nam. It was 6:00 PM 0n April 22nd 1971. It was a 12 hour flight with a refueling stop in Osaka, Japan. Arrived in Fort Lewis, Washington at 6:00 PM on April 22nd 1971. (Crossed the international date line..........something you never forget)

Today (May 4), is my 39th anniversary since coming home from the RVN. For those who don't keep up, that was also the day of the Kent State Massacre. What a WONDERFUL day to be traveling across the country in uniform. Welcome home to me!

Spent 51 months in the RVN as commo liaison to the Korean Tigers in the Qui Nhon area. DEROS of May 4, 70, and was a close friend of Mike J. Blassie, who ended up in the tomb of the unknowns until his identification and reburial at the Jefferson Barracks, St. Louis, MO, on July 11, 1998. Mike was the only friend from after my time in Vietnam that died there.

When my grandmother pictured below died..
The funeral was decent..
But when I steaped out of the car at the graveside service..
I was somewhat baffeled by the VFW there placeing a U.S.Flag over her coffin.
She was burried with Full Military Honors..
And I was somewhat supprised..
Later I learned if you read the article below about the 8 Brothers..
That acording to the VA at the time in 1958,, ferew than a dozen familys had seven war veterans, two had twelve and one nine..
I guess they figured that my grandmother had done her part.. ;)
