Viet Nam Veterans in the Classroom Five years ago the eighth grade daughter of Ollie Pickral was reaching the part of her history book, which covered a chapter on the Vietnam War. She told her teacher that her dad was a veteran and had  founded a veteran's organization known as the 11th Armored Cavalry's Veterans of Vietnam and  Cambodia. Her teacher, Mr. Hogge, asked if her dad would speak about his war experiences to his  classes at Richardson North Junior High School. Ollie accepted the invitation and asked Eric Newton  who also served in K-Troop with him to help out.

 Remember Her?

I was unit director (DD6) of the Red Cross Girls from Nov 67 to Apr 68 at Blackhorse.  I love this web site! If you were the guy I used to mix OD green coolaid for in the motor pool, or the one who had a monkey that bit Maureen on the boob, or along for the ride when  I had to sit in the tank gunners seat and NOT TOUCH ANYTHING to get us back to base camp--hey it would be fun to hear from you!
