My father in-law was LEONARD S. CONFORTH served in 8th Trans Op I think from 1969-1970. Though out his life he lived in Aberdeen Idaho and went as SOREN. He passed away in 1999. Several years ago his widow gave us his photo albums from his Service in Vietnam. Something has been moving in me to reach out to see if anyone can tell me more about his service or if the pictures I have of other Service Men might be helpful to other families. Soren was awarded a Line Haul Certificate for January-March 1970 was looking for some history on that. I know he drove an armored jeep and served close to the gun truck “Satans Lil Angel”. Any information would be great wither you knew him or not. I have some photo albums and willing to share just let me know. Thanks for your service, Scott

We need to keep the all Police especially Dallas in our prayers after the tragic ambush.
The Untouchable at the memorial, little misting rain, not many people. They were waiting until the fireworks started. I didn’t want to get stuck in that. I also posted a Photo Gallery.
Have a happy 4th of July all. Have a safe holidayl
