Welcome to my blog site. It’s a new year and I look forward to the conversations that lie ahead.
Michael Patrick Eltrich
Hello Michael, and a belated Happy New Year. I found your name via some message board posts on Ancestry.com while researching my father’s story. Your family and mine are connected via Tulsa and Dallas, and I’d like to explore that more.
I was looking at photos online and you were holding a M79 and look like a guy in my unit.
I was in Nam 69-70 on LZ Stinson in Bravo Company 1/52 198 LIB. Just checking if you are that guy.
Yes, I was in Bravo Company, 3rd Platoon, from October 1969 – October 1970. I recall your name. At the time, you would’ve known me as Gary.
I hope you are well. Are you aware that there is a Facebook page for veterans of our unit? You can find it here:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/bcomvets/members/ I’m sure there are other guys in the group whom you know.
Thanks for getting in touch.
All the best,
