Harold,  if you Google “battle of 73 Easting” it gives many different options that may help you.

Dave, according to my research, 6 from the 2nd ACR were kia in the battle of 73 Easton Would you have their names?

I am shocked with 500 veterans from wwii, korea, cold war, vietnam, all of the mideast conflicts and wars, i have a total of 8 names plus the 20 you gave me.

I do need about 25 more names for a minimum memorial day movie.

can you help?

I think it was Peter Nolin/Noon Field. Sort of a Sports Complex of fields.

My pleasure, Shannon. Always fun to show people Kenny's "other" side.
