They say no news is good news, I must be full of good news, as I haven’t heard much from K CO. members. We have been informed of two more KIA’s we must get bricks for. The names are, sp4 Dennis M. Belonger this man was KIA on the same mission as Wallate Thibodeau 18 July 1969. PFC Lonnie L. Gibson KIA around the date of 25 Sept.1969. I am asking Steve Crabtree. If there is any matching funds out their if not it will be up to our group to gather the money for the bricks. On the subject of bricks it time to be aware that you should consider getting your own brick. We had a meeting with Ranger Memorial Foundation and the committee encouraged member to get our own bricks purchased. Something to think about.

I Really appreciate the time and efforts of Pat Navrro setting up the Kco. Meetings and informing the guy’s of the locations and coordination of events. Again Thank You! I would not make social director for sure.

Thanks to Roger Crunk for purchasing the Guide On. The guide on is available to any member to use just contact me and I will get it to you. I carried it the West Coast Airborne Parade to represent K Co. I received a lot compliments of how it looked and where we got it and all.

Jack Werner from our company is the new treasure for the assoc. Talking to Jack I know the assoc. is in fine hands, a hell of fine representative of KCO.

The brick ceremony was a butt grabber for sure, not even knowing some guys just hearing the names made my hackles stand up. Pete neves took pictures of each unit bricks and is in the process of getting us a photo list made up. Now it will have to update with additional names. It will come together takes time.

Roy Boatman will put out this newsletter (Patrolling) and I hope to able to get him a column by the tenth of this month. He wants the column sent threw the computer, I’m leaning more than I need to about computers. Really having fun with this thing.

Wayne Mitsch has made up a video of his old films and photo’s (Pleiku & AnKhe) 09/1969to06/1970 contact him for a copy, price unknown at this time.

This newsletter with the one from our leader Terry Roderick is what we have this time. Let me know what your ideas are about KCO and we can work on our future, where are we going what are attempting to show the world? Johnny Flowers/P.O. Box23/Cisula NSW, Austrailia/2170, contacted me for info about KCO. I sent a few things maybe you could drop him a line especially if you worked with the Australians.

ATTENTION if you have access to a computer check out Ron Coon’s www.4thdivrangers.com you will be amazed. If you send in any pictures write some info on the back of them.
