A Passing Anniversary

Thanksgiving passed this year without this blog noting the 40th anniversary of The Last Stand Down, Alpha Company's final R&R in in 1971. The memory was hardly forgotten and was in fact shared with another participant in what has been an occasional Thanksgiving Ritual over the past four decades.

The full story as remembered is here. For the 40th anniversary, I am adding photos.
