A poem I wrote when visiting the Viet Name Memorial with the reunion in 2003. I see my image reflected upon, The wall and by the grace of God, My name would there be on. As I gaze, my body trembles so, Tears spring from within my soul, Recalling a time so long ago. How great the sacrifice gave he, That dreadnaught soldier of the past, When my brother died for me. - Richard Cowan

Just got word from Christa Stolt, Walter's wife that he suffered a stroke on 9/8/13. He is not doing well. For those of you who served with or know him, Walter is one of the best. He served as a plt. sgt. w/co.B., 69-70. He is one tough German, but also a kind & gentle man. You can outreach to him at cwliberty2@twc.com. I am sorry I missed you all who attended the reunion.

Ralph: I was on his tank for a brief time when I got back from the hospital on my 2nd Purple Heart. It was a 2nd Plt tank with Lopez and Martinez. I spent a lot of time with him at the Wash DC reunion and learned he was a grunt with Patton's 3rd Army in WWII. That was enough for him to change his MOS to Armor. He love tending his garden back in Calif. Gary

Received a message from the 2nd Bn 34th Armor Association this morning that one of our old Sergeants (Tank Commander), Sgt. Chris Garcia had passed away. He passed away on 28 May 2013. If you have any stories or anything that you remember about the Old Sergeant bring it out. I think he was in the the second platoon. Am I correct? I don't think he was one of the original cadre at Ft. Irwin. I believe he joined us later after we were in Vietnam? That's the way I remember him? Also, when we were putting the metal barracks together at base camp he was there in charge of building the bunkers. I took a picture (slide) of him leaning up against a bunker that we were building next to the metal barracks. Gentlemen, our ranks are thinning. Last summer we lost Platoon Sgt. Henry Yanez in California. Sergeant Chris Garcia----REST IN PEACE! Ralph Arvizu Charlie 33

Answering Don Ketels inquiry of April 17 as of today, 9MAY13, we have 35 Dreadnaughts signed into the October 3-6, 2013 Branson reunion. This is a good number so far, we should approach 100 by reunion time. We had 105 at our last reunion in Nashville in 2011. Fear God, Dread Not!
