Here is another monument to be aware of in Roanoke, TX.
David Johns 981st 70-71 just told me that Jack (John) S. Joyce 212th 70-71 died in 1992. He had a heart attack. He was a detective on the Pompons Beach FL police force.

Mike Olsen 981st 69-70 wanted to alert our members about a new monument in central Wisconsin. I was able to find a detailed description of the monument. Here is the link:
Good afternoon all, I am sorry if I am sending you too much. I try to send only things that are of mutual interest to our group as a whole. I believe this is one of those things. I realize most of us will not be near Fort Leonard Wood end of September, but just in case you are here you go.
Good afternoon, I am sending you a link to a Operational report = Lessons Learned- Headquarters- 18th Military Police Brigade18th MP BDE for sentry dog usage in Vietnam. It is 42 pages long.

Good evening guys and gals, Jim Frost posted this on Facebook. I know not everyone is on Facebook so I am passing it on to those folks. I will try to show it at our reunion too. I hope you all enjoy. Take Care, Gary
OK guys. I had an interview this morning on the local ABC affiliate on their long-time local show. It also combines things at the beginning from an interview when they came to the house a couple of weeks ago. The videographer did a great job editing, I think. He was fascinated with the use of the dogs. I hope I did justice to you. https://www.abc15.com/lifestyle/sonoran-living/sl-sponsors/abc15-salutes-arizona-veteran-jim-frost
Has anyone come across a website called Fold3 ?—–Fold3 has a Facebook site too. I am not endorsing this site, only saying check it out, there are other sites I’m sure.
It appears to be part of Ancestry. com, but strictly with military members and family in mind. I even found where the Army 981st MPSD Company was awarded a Meritorious Unit Commendation on there. It is described by the commanding officers why it was given. Amazing!
They have a 7-day free trial and if you choose, $7.95 a month thereafter.
There is a free version also. Thoroughly check the website out. More details below.
Fold3 provides convenient access to military records, including the stories, photos, and personal documents of the men and women who served. Flag Ceremony from the Vietnam War
The records at Fold3 help you discover and share stories about these everyday heroes, forgotten soldiers, and the families that supported them. On Fold3, you can combine records found on the site with what you have in your own albums and shoeboxes to create an online memorial for someone who served.fold3.comPage 2 Vietnam Service Awards – Fold3Recommendations for awarding Presidential Unit Citations (PUC), Valorous Unit Awards (VUA), and the Meritorious Unit Commendations (MUC).
