WE REMEMBER - LASZLO HOLOVITS CITIZENSHP STILL HAS HOPES
Sgt Holovits and hs iwife Linda on their wedding day, Dec. 17, 1963
Red Warrior Dennis Lewallen has never forgotten Laszlo Holovits, his Sgt in Vietnam. He vividly remembers the day Holovits was accidentally killed on September 23, 1967, just weeks after his arrival in country.
He was a member of Delta Company. Recently Lewallen reached out to Holovits' widow and the two finally got a chance to speak to each other.
Holovits was from Hungary, and the military promised him a fast track to become a U.S. citizen. That hope died when he was killed. Through the years though, his wife Linda has pursued the dream of her husband receiving citizenship posthumously.
Monterey Herald reporter James Herrera picks up the story and in and an August 3 article, and updated on September 11, 2018, Herrera gives us the latest on Lewallen's contact with Holovits's wife and the progress of her quest.
$500 PAID FOR ARTICLES RELATED TO THE 4TH DIVISION
Here's your chance to contribute to the legacy and history of the 4th division by writing an article that ties into the actions of the 4th Infantry Division during Vietnam. If selected for publication, you could be the recipient of $500.
Recently Chuck Springston, Editor of History Net Vietnam wrote: "We rely on outside contributors who submit articles, or ideas for articles, which are shared with an article review team that includes Vietnam veterans and military historians who assess manuscripts and queries for possible publication. We then do the editing work to prepare those articles for publication. I would welcome propose or already-written articles (as long as they haven’t been published elsewhere) about the Ivy Division or one of its battalions. Our full-length articles are 3,000 words and are written to appeal not only to veterans but also a general audience, especially younger readers who know little of the war but are interested in learning about it in an easily understandable way."
