  Ken Quale's diary for Larry Fanella and Blair Two Crow.

During June, 2005 some of our men met in Washington, DC with Tom Fanella (cousin of Larry) and his significant other, Susan Hayes. Ken Quale wrote the attached letter regarding their meeting, and Ken's subsequent cross-country trip, including a meeting with Sherline Two Crow, sister of Blair Two Crow who was lost on Dec 4, 1968.


  My husband, Jack W. Hayden served in Nam March 69 thru March 70, Americal Div., Delta Co., 1/20th, 11th LIB. He was diagnosed in 2005 with renal cell carcinoma. Since VA does not recognize his disease as Agent Orange related, I would like to see that changed. I am try to collect info on the number of Nam vets who have developed this disease. It may be too late to help my husband but could possibly help other vets who have renal cell carcinoma or will develop it later. I would greatly appreciate any info you could provide, even if you know a Nam vet that has this disease or who has died from it.
  Please contact me at jandphay@bellsouth.net. There is strength in numbers as you guys know. United we stand! Thanks for the courage of everyone who didn't go to Canada. Please help us prove to VA that they are wrong.

  This was the most attended, largest reunion yet. The fellowship was without peer. Special guests from the Alpha Company, parents, sons of our lost brothers were also in attendance. Many photographs and other materials were copied and will be added to this website. The group photo is now on line & a gallery page is started. More to follow!

  The names on our Memorial page have been updated. Many new photographs were collected at the reunion and are now on this website.


  We had a wonderful and successful 2002 Reunion the weekend of April 26th. There were 35 men, many with their wives in attendence

  We held our Memorial Service on Saturday morning at Patriot Park to honor our fallen brothers, including a 21 gun salute by Master Sergeant Harold Morrison and the Tennessee National Guard. We read 65 names of our lost brothers.

  Please review the Memorial list of our lost brothers. If you can think of any names we have not listed. Contact us so we may include them.

  Potential Delta Company Casualties
The National Records shows this list of men as being casualties of Delta Company, but we have not been able to verify the names. If you are a member of Delta Company, please review the list. If you can confirm a casualty from the list, please notify us through this Contact link. We will then add them to the Delta Company Memorial list
