I got a telephone call from  Verne PENDLETON who was a 91D40 in B Co. 15th MED, 1966 to ’68.  A 91D M.O.S. was an operating room specialist. Verne said that he took the extra- long training for that after basic medical training at Ft. Sam Houston. When he first got to Vietnam and the 1st Cav, he spent two weeks in the field as a platoon Medic until assigned to B 15th MED.

B Co. 15th MED was the most mobile of the 15th MED companies, always on the move when needed, while the other 15th MED companies stayed with their brigade coverage until the big moves came. Verne mentioned being in many locations that I’ve read, or heard about the 1st Cav Airmobile operating; then mostly II Corps.  

Verne said that he is very interested in hearing from anyone with whom he may have served, and Reunions. His phone contact is: (541)580-7123.

Webmaster/Past President 2003-2006 15th Med Association Murray GIBBS, MEDEVAC ‘67-’ 68, writes that  they have finalized the 2012 Reunion with the Group Member Code being sent to him.  He has the 2012 Reunion Registration Form posted on the Website and he will soon send it as an attachment to an e-mail.  Here is the link to the Website page for the 2012 Reunion info: < html>

Alan FRANKHOUSER of Lima, OH, posts: “Looking for anybody from 15th MED,  A Co. Nov. ‘67 thru Dec. ‘68. Also looking for Larry JONES 1st. Cav, 2-12 Cav same time frame.

Ronald INGRAM Papillion, NE, comments: “This was my first Reunion and what an eye opener. I didn’t know what to expect but I'm glad I finally made Branson. For many years this was always a thing of the past, thanks MEDEVAC great friends.”

Always remembering our 1st Cav troops on duty around the world; over and out.
