In March 2014 Dwight Edwards and John Gergulis went back to Vietnam to visit. They are the "advanced party" for Company D. John and Dwight will have more details for us at Branson. Thanks to them for providing the photos. (Click on photos to enlarge. Music is the South Vietnam National Anthem. South Vietnam that will rise again.)
