Photos Compliments of Gene Keith Huddleston

 


"We Few..." is what is left of 3rd platoon after the ravages of time, July 2002 reunion in Washington, DC. Left to right: Rudy Fontane, Doug Heath, Keith Huddleston, Jack Frick (kneeling), Larry O'Toole, Jerry Shea, Tom Enwright, Wayne Henderson, Barry Colassard. Jack and Larry were not members of 3rd platoon, but we adopted them since Mike Dicke was KIA. Wayne Henderson was not 3rd Recon, but he was one of the arty FO's that accompanied me and 3rd Platoon on some patrols.


Ushers at my wedding, left to right: Barry Beck (Rifle Platoon, Chu Lai area, 1965-66), Joe Revell (CO Charlie Company 1965-66), Jack Sheehan (retired as 4-star), Bill Henderson (A Company, 3rd Recon Bn, 1965-66), Steve Smith (FO with 3rd Platoon, Charlie Company 1965), Jim Cooney (introduced me to my wife, Vicki, at 8th&Eye).
