Keep the rubber side down and great read.

Welcome home, Lonnie!

Thank you so much for contacting me and please extend my gratitude to your former platoon leader for forwarding the thread. You Screamin' Eagles were (and are!) a fine unit and did yourselves proud in RVN. I'm sure thankful I didn't have to go into the A Shau like you guys did. Thank you for your service. I'm glad you're okay!
