Watch for a Mohawk in the memorial dedication flyover in 2006.
That will be the second time a Mohawk has been in Pierre.
The Vietnam War for me was difficult but rewarding.
My experience there has stayed with me for the rest of my life. Adrian, Sioux Falls, SDI attended Army basic training, AIT, then Officer Candidate School after graduation from SDSU.
Thank you Governor Daugaard and to all the staff and volunteers who are working on the "Welcome Home", and the Vietnam War Memorial Dedication, scheduled for September 2006. I joined the Army because it would pay for two years of college and then I would serve three years of active duty.
For a farm girl with three sisters it was a great way to get a college education. I have wonderful memories of working long 12-hour days, six days a week, with one weekend off every 8 to 10 weeks.
Nonetheless, I recall instances of racial tension between white and black soldiers in the 2/60th. Any time trouble seemed to be brewing, he had a smile and wit and wisdom that would defuse most any situation.
We did an emergency landing in the rice fields and then, after assessing our damage, flew to the Tay Ninh base and switched helicopters.
and How do I get out of this mess I got myself into?
My parents were against me joining the Armed Forces and especially the Marines. I learned to accept my situation and to make the best of it. Because of this training, I was looking forward to going to South Vietnam.
When I left Vietnam, I gave all of my clothing and boots to our house boy. Brandriet, Watertown, SDDave would be so excited about the upcoming celebration.
He would want to share this time with fellow Vietnam Veterans, in particular his friend Jim Elkins from Watertown, SD, and his friends from the VEVA (Vietnam Era Veterans Association) group here in Pierre.
