Volume 1 of Weekend to Remember, 25th Anniversary Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Everyone!! Is posted and can be viewed on youtube, here’s the link: https://youtu.be/y3dC-lNvBD8 for a limited time.
I want to say “Thank You” to all the veterans I met 10 years ago in Washington D.C. Especially to all the members of the North Dakota VVA, Chapter 874, 39th Combat Engineers Battalion.
Father Billy who I met during the filming of the Opening Ceremony, Veterans Day parade at the National Mall. Roger Cheek introduction to Dustin Blanchard, NBC affiliate of Atlanta, GA. Who inspired me to continue that weekend, culminating with being part of the media who also recorded the speech by Colin Powell, Gen. (retired).
Trooper James Abram, Charlie Co, 1st/12th Air Cavalry, 1966-1967 who together we shared space on the media stand. He has guided me with his faith in God and the teachings of the Bible. When I wondered how the film project would become of fruition
Post Production I want to say “Thank You” to Donatello Bonato, Luis Villalon, for their cameraman and filming editing experience. Who without I would have been completely overwhelmed?
John Locker, of Sonic Factory Studios, as the Audio Engineer who transformed the audio tracks. From a tangled mess of noise to a work of Art! Thank You, Jon!
Dale “Doc” Shepherd, Medic,39th Combat Engineers Battalion, audio engineer for recording the Narration audio track.
Without the help of these people. I wouldn’t be writing this today. Last but not least to my friend Ray Benson, Air Force veteran, served in-country at Pang Rang airbase. For his tireless support of film sales in the upper Midwest. Thank You, Brother…
Along with all my fellow Vietnam veterans, brothers and sister’s I met at 101st Airborne Division, 4th Infantry Division, 39th Combat Engineer Battalion, and VSPA reunions.
I ask all who view to please share with all you know and let’s make this viral today! And every day!

About pleiku1970

My service at Pleiku, 1970 is significient because of the Cambodian Incursion. Close proximity to exit routes from the Ho Chi Minh Trail and the "Tri-Border area of Laos,Cambodia and Vietnam. This Air Force assignment was different than most, because of the isolation.
