Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
E-IVY LEAF NEWSLETTER AVAILABLE
I forward the below from Bob Babcock for your reading and Information. Once again, please consider writing a short story for Bob to include in his next writing adventure. Remember the story should relate to your experiences in Vietnam with the 4th IN Div. As I indicated earlier, the story doesn't have to be about any specific battle, maybe just a short story about the troop ship ride, or flight to Vietnam as a draftee, the first day in the jungle, food, changing clothes or not, creatires, snakes, bugs, rice paddies, leeches, combat air assualts and jumping out of a Huey... meeting life long friends, flight home, and while you may sense you should not share or no one cares, you would be surprised the level of interest on others experiences. BTW-- if you are concerned about your lack of writing talent, Mr. Babcock will edit and take care of that part..he re-wrote some of mine !!! Have fun doing it
