Dale and Nadine,

Thank you both (and Jim Bruno and Jim and Judy Leach) so very much for all the effort in putting the first reunion together - it was a true labor of love. Everything went smoothly, a tribute to your dedication and desire to make this the huge success it was. My wife Carolyn and I truly enjoyed ourselves; I enjoyed a lot of laughs and yes, my eyes watered up a few times as well. It was great to connect with guys I was together with during my time there and to meet new friends. Some of the faces were easy for me to pick out of the crowd, John Anderson, Bill Martin, Bob Copeland, Jim Isom, Argyle Orr, Jerry Dvorak, Dale Rambin, Ralph Sanchez, Greg Bearden, just to name a few. It was interesting to hear how everyone's lives have progressed since our times together. My only regret is not having maintained contact down through the years - part of that is attributable to the, shall we say, less than warm reception I received on my return home to the US in July of 1968 (it was not a good time to be a returning veteran, as many can relate to) and my blocking out a lot of it and keeping the rest buried deep within me. I am proud to have been a member of the 127th Military Police Company and to have served with the finest group of men - thank you all for helping enrich my life - it was a truly valuable experience for me. I look forward with anticipation to the next reunion, and it is my sincere hope that we can all help to locate as many alumni as we can and gather at the next reunion. Keep the faith, thank you again, take care, and stay well.

Warmest regards,

Len and Carolyn Dickson
