Greetings friends, I just wanted to remind you all that as of March 17th, 2015 the Geronimo-Vietnam website will have been on the internet non-stop for 14 straight years. It's been a fun ride for me and I want to thank everyone for your interest and support in keeping the website a popular place to visit for namvets and all others who care.

It's That Time Again

to remind everyone that the All Services Veterans Reunion hosted by the Howard County Vietnam Veterans Organization is on the near horizon. The 32nd annual reunion on the outskirts of Kokomo, Indiana is the oldest and largest event of it's kind in the country and will run from September 18th to the 21st. Originally for namvets the reunion has evolved over the years to include all veterans and all services from all years. I've been going since 1993 and can ramble on for days on how cool this reunion is but I'll cut everyone some slack and just post the link to the HCVVO website and you can see for yourself.

Speaking of websites I have recently updated the Namvet Links page at the geronimo-vietnam site. Corrections to outdated links have been made along with the addition of a few new links so take a look next time you visit.

Ervin "Tex" Isbell

I received some sad news this morning from fellow A 1/501 vet Barry Gregorich that I need to share with all A co vets.

Ervin "Tex" Isbell, a brother of Co A, passed away on July 16th, 2014 from complications involving brain tumor treatments he had been receiving. Ervin served with Co A in 1971 and recently retired from the Galveston Police Department. Ervin is survived by his wife Jeana and his four children. It was a honor to have known Ervin and he will be greatly missed by all the brothers of Co A that he served with.
God Bless and Rest In Peace "Tex".
Brothers Forever,

Spring 2014 sit-rep

Wow! Time has really been flying by. I have to apologize for neglecting the blog for so long but I've had a lot on my plate in recent months. I have been mostly making changes and upgrades to the home website ( and things are finally coming together as the website moves into it's fourteenth year on the internet. Recently I uploaded a great photo album along with two cool video's from last year's A 1/501 reunion at Branson Missouri so go to the website "Reunions" page and check it out. Speaking of reunions, word is already spreading about the next A 1/501 gathering being organized by Barry Gregorich and it will be the best one so far. Get yourself ready for "Washington D.C. in June 2015". Barry already has the primary plans set and all the details will be posted here at the blog in early april. Barry has added an extra day to the event this time and we will all get to see the fantastic sights in D.C. starting with "The Wall" of course. This is one reunion you don't want to miss so be sure to check the blog soon for the official announcement.

To all those that celebrate Thanksgiving day I hope you can turn it into a four day weekend full of good times with family and friends. For those that have to work keeping the country going and those serving around the world in the military, I hope you get some time to relax and have a good meal. What I'm most thankful for is those that serve and protect this country. Because of them I'll be watching football and enjoying a few beers throughout the day. Thanks to all that visit the blog.

About the jukebox player

I'm sure those that stop by the site often know I'm still playing around with the juke box settings. I'm going to disable the auto start function and let the visitors decide what they want to hear first instead. :) Please note that you can start the playlist in "Shuffle" mode by clicking the small shuffle icon upper right. When the icon is high-lighted in red "Shuffle" is on. When green shuffle is off. If you just want to hear the straight playlist click the green start button in the center. At any time during play you can click a title in the playlist box and it will start immediately. Whether in shuffle mode or straight play the juke box will auto-stop after all files have played. If you have any comments, suggestions or requests regarding the jukes you can leave an anonymous message here in the blog or send me an email.

Branson, MO.

Another successful A 1/501 reunion has come and gone. I personally haven't gotten any war stories or pics concerning what took place yet but I'm certain Barry Gregorich has put together a great event. Once I get some ammunition from Barry and others I will link it up at the website and also post links here in the blog. Don't forget you can also reply to my post here with a comment of your own re: Branson. I hope everyone gets back home safely where you can kick back and savor the goodtimes :)
