Message: I was not with the unit very long, so remembering people I served with is hard for me. I remember having pasta back in base camp as one of you got a huge package from home and made it for all of us. Spending Thanksgiving on the side of a hill was one of the last memories I have. Oh, I was also sent down a hole to find the person we saw looking out . It was there that I recovered a Chinese flag and one of you took my picture with it before the LT took it away citing RHIP. Hope Some of this sparks a memory and we can connect again.
