Roger, Have you been in touch with Stuart Hutchen? If so I need to communicate with him, as he may have information about the start-p of the 765th Sec Plt as mentioned in his Facebook message about moving from the Advisory Team 79 to the 765th Sec Plt. I'd appreciate any help getting in touch with Stuart.

Friendship Clinic was the first physical reconstruction project undertaken in Vietnam by any USA organization, under Humanitarian Aid License from the US Treasury Department, since the end of their involvement in the war in 1973.

We were a group of all US combat veterans, augmented by an equal number of Vietcong Veterans, and North Vietnam Army veterans.

The U.S. Army was founded on June 14, 1775 - more than a year before the Declaration of Independence - when the Continental Congress authorized the enlistment of expert riflemen to serve the Colonies for one year.

The Battle Field Cross ~ Also known as the “Soldier’s Cross” or “Battle Cross”. With origins dating to the Civil War: Without dog tags, many of the men would sew their names into their uniforms. When they fell, soldiers were hastily buried between battles, the rifle was stabbed into the ground to mark their final resting place. Anything which identified the fallen was placed on the rifle so others would know who eternally rested there.

When a serviceman or woman are lost in battle, it has become customary to arrange their Boots, Rifle and Helmet. The surviving members of their squad gather around and memorialize their fallen comrades. To honor fallen brothers and sisters in arms, the Battlefield Cross or Soldier’s Cross is placed in honor of those who have perished, as a way to pay their last respects.

The meaning of the items which comprise the Soldiers Cross:

The Rifle: The inverted rifle with bayonet signals a time for prayer, a break in the action to pay tribute to our comrade. The rifle, bayonet affixed, thrust into the ground, defiantly symbolizing that the soldier went down fighting. The rifle inverted symbolizes Christ's Cross on Calvary. Reminding us that this soldier sacrificed his life for his country.
The Boots: The boots carry a service member through the fight for our freedom. They are the first and most important means of transportation. The boots are placed at the base of the rifle. They are worn and dirty reminding us of that final march to that last battle.

Dog Tags: Dog tags are worn by each service member; they have imprinted into them, all of the important identifying information regarding that individual. The dog tags are hung from the rifle, so that the name of the fallen will never be forgotten.

The Helmet: The helmet is an important piece of protection on the battlefield. Some believe that the hat or helmet of the individual represents what that person stood for; and so the helmet is placed on top of the rifle signifying that the battle is over and that a great sacrifice has been made. It will never be worn again.

The Soldier’s Cross or Battlefield Cross… stands in tribute here as we honor and remember our fallen comrades, and never forget….the high price of freedom.
