Still on the road

I'm in New Mexico headed for Santa Fe and Taos. Rich told me to correct my last post. I appologize to who follow my blog. I implied that Rich was to only one. I'm on my way to Santa Fe, Taos, and Angel Fire. At Angel Fire I will visit the Victor Westphall Vietnam Veteran Memorial. This is the first US memorial for those who died in Vietnam. I have spent time at the Wall and visiting this memorial will follow one of the themes of my trip. The last memorial that I plan to go to will be Joe Martin's grave in San Luis Obispo, CA. The aniversary of Joe's death is tomorrow. He died in a battle near Long An Province, south of Saigon in 1967. That day was a tragic one for all of us in the 4/47th.

Thanks Bob,
It is always good to know where you are at and where you are headed. Joe Martin holds a special place in my heart, please pass that along to him in your prayer. Be kind to yourself, and keep us posted.

Bob, I hope the travels have been all you wanted them to be and more. I'm figuring you're home by now hopefully setting up that hike with your son.
Take care
