My little gift this Christmas 2012

What are the chances of another veteran who served with my father in Vietnam 45 years ago search my dads name and fine me on this site.  I'm very excited to hear a story from Geoff Colt to make the connection with me about my dads service. It is like a gift to me. I lived my first 12 years on military bases and remember the Christmas my dad was in Vietnam wondering if he would ever come home. Veterans don't always like to talk about their service but remember years later your children and…See More

Teresa,

First Thanks for listing me as a "Friend" on this site. I have been wanting to tell you about a mission your Dad and I flew together. Because of him Seven American lived and walked out of a terrible mess. I don't normally talk about things like this to people and I don't want "What ever " from everyone, but I will tell you. Give me a day or two to get my courage up and my thoughts together. I will leave my story on this page and maybe not too many will ask me too many questions. You may ask what ever you wish!

 

Geoff

Teresa:  A few years back my wife and I took a tour bus to Washington DC. Tomi Lowe was the tour director. She knew a school chum from Richwood Ohio who was a retired Col Air Force worked at the Pentagon. Then became a DC Policeman. Tomi hired him to go on the bus and go rubbernecking with us. I do  believe he was called Marvin, I did have a picture of him,Tomi and myself in DC. Is Marvin still living? Seems I saw a Obit in local paper about him.

I also took Mobile Meals to Marvin's Father& Mother on South Franklin st.
