I was in B 1/7 from Sept 71 thru April 72. I was initally in the mortar squad, until they were disbanded. Then just a regular bush beater. In Feb 72, I was made log rep on the firebase until I left country at the end of April 72. I guess I was in 1st platoon, because I don't recognize anyone in any other platoon. I'm glad most of us made it home safe. All you Nam brothers take care and have a good life. Drop me a line if you remember me.

I was the Artillery Fire Support Officer for 1/7th Cav from Jan to July 1971 in RVN. I was the one coordinating the Artillery and AFA support when you people went into an LZ. In 1967 I was an Artillery Forward Observer with D/1/8th Cav. AS terrible as RVN was my fondest memories are are my time spent with you infrantymen, the real heroes of RVN. Does anyone have contact with Lt. Colonel Alfred E. Spry? He was the CO of 1/7 Cav in spring of 1971. I have cassette tapes of radio transmissions of Air Assaults and many 35mm slides of operations in 1971. Anyone wants to talk to me do so. Gary Owen, Paul
