Here Neil Brown, Dick "Spanky" Lalim and Nick Schaefer were taking a much needed rest, at Loc Ninh, Vietnam.

We had been loading a U.S. Army, M-113 personnel carrier onto our C-130 to go to Bu Dop, Vietnam, in early part of November 1969.

This past summer eight of us got together in Cleveland, OH. We met at Neil Brown's home.

The last time we had seen each other was in 1970.

As you can see they mean alot to me.
