Just wanted to ask how many Remember medic Larry Dobbs? He was the one who put our Pather year book together. Found out he lives at the VA health center in Clinton OK. I went to see him today and he wanted me to tell you all hi.

To my recollection Larry went to Battalion and asked them if he could put together a yearbook. Sometime in 67 to 68. They gave him the green light and he went to all the Companies in 2/8 4th ID and took photos and notes on who everyone was. Of course there were alot of guys that were left out as they might have been on patrol or pulling guard or ??? when he was out at the Company. I was in the Company at the time the photos were taken, but I never made the cut. But he was able to get enough photos and names of fellows that the original fellows that started the reunions had some names of fellows to start looking for.
He then sent his work back to his Dad that had a printing company of some sort and he put the book together.
If the truth be known he might be the one person that helped all of us come together at these reunions.
