Information and Current Affairs Page

This page has been created to provide information and current items of interest.  This has been done to provide our members with the most recent news occurring during the intervals between issuance of new Battalion Runner Newsletters.  Entries here will be listed by date, with the most recent items being listed first.  Older items will be removed upon issuance of the next Battalion Runner.  I hope this new page will serve to improve the service the Network provides to our members.  As always, anyone can email me at ditson35@verizon.net with questions, concerns, information, etc. at any time.

Previous updates are now posted in Battalion Runner 18-1, 30 March 2018.  Future updates will be posted as I receive information.


Update 03 June 2019:  Received the following from Paul Burns, brother of 2/9 Golf member Michael Meehan:

NAME: Paul Burns  EMAIL: paulburns365@gmail.com  PHONE: 518-597-3397  ADDRESS: 19 Factoryville Road, Crown Point, NY 12928

Looking for some of my brother's buddies that fought with him . We had the same mother but his name was Michael Meehan. His letters to our mom indicate that he was primarily in Quang Tri province.   In them he mentions also being very close to Laos at times. Before he was wounded he was part of Golf Co.  In one letter he mentions coming off hill 950 on August 4,1968. He wrote that he was wounded on hill 792 which I can not find. If anyone knew Mike I would appreciate the opportunity to correspond with you as his memory is all I have left, and these letters . Sincerely hoping to hear from someone. Paul
