I am trying to locate B 2nd 17th guys who served in the FDC unit at Dalat while I was there from Nov 1970 to April 1971. I was with C Battery prior to that.

Please keep my old section chief [b]Charles Riley[/b] in your thoughts and prayers. He found out yesterday that he has throat cancer. He goes back to the dr. next week to see how they are going to treat it. Charles and I attended about 10 reunions together over the years as many of you know. Again remember cards, calls, emails, and prayers go a long way!

From: Gil Bernabe
Subject: Passing of CSM Charles M. Garner (Ret.)
It is with a sad heart that I inform you of the passing of CSM Charles M. Garner.
Robin Garner called me today to inform me that her father died on Sunday, September 10, 2017, in a VA Hospital near his hometown.
CSM Garner was closely following doctor’s orders, so, he could feel up to travelling to Charleston, SC, for the 17th Artillery Reunion. But, while the spirit was willing, his 77-year-old body did not cooperate.
Robin informs me that there will be no services at the hometown of Hopkins, SC. There will be a family gathering and services in the future where he grew up in Franklin, NC. Robin will provide us the details in case any 17th Artillery veterans wish to attend.
Robin will try to attend the reunion banquet in North Charleston.
Please remember cards, calls, emails, and prayers go a long way!

This is a date that we all remember. Some of us came under attack while with 17th F.A. All of us were under attack on 9/11/2001. Freedom Is Not Free! We must keep up our guard.
JB
B & C 2nd. 17th.

Being there are quite a few members in Texas I'm going to ask everyone to keep them all, along with all the other residents of Texas, in your thoughts and prayers as they struggle through this hurricane they're going through.

George Schaeffer (Viet Nam)passed away a few days ago of an apparent heart attack. He was a life member of the 17th. I was notified this morning by a friend of his family. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. I spoke with my old section chief this morning, Charles Riley, and he will be going to the hospital Aug. 23rd for more tests as well. Charles had heart surgery last year and has a defibrillator implant as well. I ask that you keep him in your prayers as well.

Hi Jeremy. I was in A Btry 4/17 out of Durham. LTC. Kuchna was BN commander when I was in. My old section chief and I belong to this organization. We've tried over the years to locate a lot of the guys that came back from Nam finishing up their time as well as prior service and straight reservists. You're right, a lot of them have gone on and we'd love to have another from 4th BN. I was in '74-78. It's no telling how many THOUSANDS went through the 4th from WW II until it was disbanded in the late 80's. Hope you join. Reunion is in Sept. in Charleston, SC. Details are on the newsletter you can read on line. You won't regret it.

Hey I just found this site. I was in Svc Btry 4/17 in Wilson NC from 1992 until 1995. I remember a lot of the fellas from there. Some are no longer with us like Sgt. Lee and Top Frazier, but there are many I would like to see again. I too have had my share of life's issues but I am glad to have found a site to try and re-connect with the ones from my early days.
