In Gratitude and Memorium of our Comrades who gave their lives to get us home

Thanks to former Sgt. Christopher Gaynor, I found out who those 3 guys up there are. I had forgotten, but he reminded me that they are" Left to right - George Calvert, Me, Sgt. Mikie and Chris. We were there paying our respects

Some New Stuff. ----
1. While researching me,and other stuff, and trying to keep the site, and ESPECIALLY the honors page, "Right and Tight" I found out something that will impact the 2/77VN "Wall" (That is why the names, etc. are silver on black, ----THE WALL.)By Army Regulations pertaining to Awards and Decorations - every soldier,alive or dead, with at least 1 Year of service with no disciplinary actions (in war time) is authorized a "Good Conduct" Medal.
2. So, in light of that fact and our desire to keep the historical stuff of the site as accurate as possible, I will be going through the list and making sure that ALL our Greatest heroes that did NOT get a GCM on their medal/ribbon bar and are 1 year veterans at the time of their KIA status - Get the deserved addition of their Good Conduct Medal.
3. I began with the hardest first. Our most decorated, numerically speaking trooper who was KIA. Thomas Berry Corbin. Check out his page, when you need inspiration to keep on keeping on. HE is one of the reasons you are able to decide to give up or keep on keeping on like he did. Remember what Audie Murphy's buddy said. "Hell, they can kill us, but they can't eat us. That's illegal"

This one was a mystery to me. The first way I saw him listed was H/2/77. his Virtual Wall page lists him as a 64A10 "Light vehicle Driver." That also died at FSB GOLD. Assigned as H/2/11, IIFFV. Recent info from Ed Radz - He was Col. Vessey's driver. I Guess 2/77 or 3Bde/4th Div. Personnel hadn't had time for his transfer orders to 'catch up' with him prior to his KIA date at Soui-Tre?. At ANY RATE, - this HONORED HERO of ours was in every way that COUNTS - 2/77FA, so I HAD to move him BACK up here where he belongs!

There are some names previously listed in ERROR as 2/77FA KIA's who were apparently with us on FSB's while killed. I Believe that at this time, there are 3.
1 A/2/34ARM,
1 from 65 Engr. Bn. and
1 from D/71st ADA -- IIFFV.
However, since they died protecting us as we were protecting them, I have decided to HONOR them on this page, in their own SPECIAL place.

-----Many Thanks to Jack Morrison, who provided us with this new information! I believe he is a member of the 77th Field Artillery Association, which is of course, the home Regiment of the 2nd Bn. -----Thanks, Jack!

Jesse Bea Rose 03-21-67 
D/71st ADA
Tillar AR Due to Recently Acquired info -
It is now believed that Jesse was either
the gunner or a crew member on the
Quad .50 Lost in defense of FSB GOLD.
(His MOS is listed as 13F10 Automatic Weapons Crew.
