Proud American

Proud American Wins!!!

Proud American GunTruck was chosen as SteelSoldiers Military Vehicle of the Year – 2014 in voting that ended yesterday. A special thanks goes to John Dodd, Ron Smith, and Frenchie who both campaigned for votes.

Proud won the MV of the Month competition last March which qualified her to run for MV of the Year 2014.

SteelSoldiers has nearly 60,000 registered members and an unknown amount of personally owned military vehicles but I’m going to guess in the two thousand range(?)

Proud American did not win on appearance alone, it was her story and that of GunTruckers in general that pulled the votes and triggered the win.

I hope you are all Proud that one of “your” trucks was selected and is still out there representing you guys!1fAP14_AuSt_70

Not able to make roll call

Wanted to give everyone a heads up. A friend and fellow crew member of Blood Sweat and Tires, Kenneth Treadaway, passed away last  Saturday. He and I shared a few wild times together in Viet Nam and met up several years ago for the first time since 72. Every time a Brother leaves they take a little piece of us with them, I’ll miss him on this side.

58th Trans Co

It saddens me to notify you that Jeremiah J (Jay) Sullivan  passed December 24th after a year long battle with cancer. Jay was a driver in the 58 Transportation Company 65/66. RIP Jay and Welcome Home. I thank his brother, Jim, for letting me know. It saddns me thatour Vietnam Veterans are leaving us so fast. Jay’s family needs a lil prayer.
