I'd like to ask all of the members and their families to keep CSM Charles Garner (Ret.) in your thoughts and prayers. Upon checking with his daughter about him I was informed that he was hospitalized the first of this month but is out now. He has been re-enrolled with Hospice. I met Charles at my first reunion in 2001 or 2002 and he has been a very devoted member, as well as one of the first ones too. Remember cards, calls, and emails go a long way!

I was with C Btry, 2/17th from July, 1970 until the battalion was deactivated in April, 1971. From July until November, I called FB Doris K home, and remember afternoons filling sandbags and chopping weeds in the wire. The battery then moved to FB Aquarius over the course of a couple of months, right along the end of the airstrip known as East Field (Ban Me Thuot East). The airstrip and the firebase were amazingly free of all vegetation, but I never questioned why.
I attended a couple of the association's early reunions in DC and at Ft Sill, before grandkids started taking up my time. At these, I reunited with my old sergeant, Mike Burke, and Webster Cole and Nolan Putman. Later reunions were graced with the presence of G.W. Addison and Barry "Bubbles" Maurer. Barry rotated back home before we moved to Aquarius, but the other guys were there for at least a couple of months.
Mike used to keep in contact with me, and he let me know about the passing of Nolan and G.W. of cancer. I have not heard from Mike in over a year, and got the feeling that he also was having health problems.
I guess I was not surprised when I recently discovered that Agent Orange was not just used to defoliate the jungle, but also to clear airstrips, firebases, and other landscapes.
If anyone has heard from Mike, or any other former resident of FB Aquarius, I would like to make contact with them to see how they're getting along.
I can be reached at 920-262-0041, or gatzketom@yahoo.com, which I check religiously every week or so.
To all fellow Persuaders, I wish you well.

Update on Norm and Annette Jones. I'm about two weeks late getting this out due to some sickness on my end. Norm sent me an email saying that Annette just had another treatment and appears to be doing fine and will know more from the next CT scan. They aren't flying anymore due to blood clots in his legs. He is also going to have to have his gall bladder removed. Please keep this couple in your prayers. They have done so much, among being a co-founder of the association, for this group. Remember cards, calls, and emails go a long way.

Just did a google search for 2nd 17th Artillery and your site came up. I was in B battery in the ammo section from March 67 through about November 67with Miller, Butcher, and Arron. I was promoted to E-5 and transferred to A Battery until I rotated homoin March 68. I found some pictures of my group on internet at LZ Schueller. Most of my pictures faded away or were lost. I live in West Monroe, LA. A friend, Jerry Waggoner, who was in supply at headquarters from March 67-March 68 also lives in West Monroe, LA if anyone remembers him. I would like to join your organization if someone will send me a membership form. I would love to see a roster to see if I can remember anyone. I can still see faces of most guys from the guns but I have forgotten most names.

Please keep one of our organization founders Tom Kurtz, in your thoughts and prayers. Tom has had some health problems lately but hopefully everything is under control now along with continuing to being a caregiver to his family. Tom continues to do a lot of work 'behind the scenes' to better the organization. Remember cards, calls, and emails go a long way!

On my family's and my behalf I can't begin to thank you all for the cards, calls, and emails I've received from members and their families over the losses of my mom, dad, and step-mother over the last three months. It has been hard but we have to move on or sink. I know they're all in a better place now with no suffering. Thanks again and God Bless.

An update on Dave Rowell and the flooding in LA. "Thank you Richard for this kind gesture to help my wife and I.
I found out this afternoon that I will NOT be getting any FEMA monies to help us rebuild as our home is paid for and I make too much retirement money.

Would you pray for us as we
seek God's wisdom as to "what do we do next?".

Jehovah-Shalom.
Dave Rowell
2/17 A Battery 1968-1969

This man and his family are seeing very difficult times along with a lot of others in LA. I can only ask, for one of our own, to pray for him and his family and help them out as best as you can with a financial gift. I don't usually request this but I don't usually see these circumstances. His mailing address is on the roster because addresses are not published here. Think if this was you. Would you help?
