Hello again, my brothers.
I'm Mick Capman, a retired cop from Kalamazoo, Michigan currently living in Muskegon, Michigan.
I served in Vietnam from early '67 to late '68. Our "rear" area was in PhuCat RVN.
I was a combat medic assigned to the 903rd AeroMedEvac USAF Flt, and spent most of my time at the DMZ, I Corp, supporting the 3rd Marine Div at DongHa, or the 173rd Airborne Div(Army), in the central highlands at DakTo.
My FRIENDSHIP with the ROK Marines assigned to PhuCat started mid-year of 1967.
I got to know many of you and unfortunately, lost touch with you personally after we both had left the war zone. I honor and appreciate the service you have given to your countrymen today, and yesterday. I am VERY PROUD and HUMBLED to have known you during the times I came back to PhuCat.
I remember passing seeing you guys, and thinking there was something I could do to help your situation. I told my parents about it, and they donated to you GREEN sweatshirts from Western Michigan University. Do any of you remember that? I was also able to bring out a truck load of plywood sheets to help you construct your Captain's hooch, and help with the repairs of your hooches.
I very much respected you guys and hope some of these pictures will bring back good memories ... tough as they were. I haven't forgotten the young faces, their smiles and I very much hope and pray, all of you are well today.
Do you recognize any of these faces???
Thank you, Merry Christmas, and hope our paths cross again soon.
