Hey Top!

I sent you an email to an address I had, but never got a reply, so it must be an old one you no longer use.  Hope you are doing well.  I've been reconnecting with some of the folks from 2nd platoon C Trp. In the last month I've been in contact with John Matuszewski, Paul Klosowski, and Marvin A. "Al" Olive (my platoon sergeant).  They all pass on their regards.  If you want to email me directly rather than post here, it's jjunk@coomcast.net.  Best regards, Jim

Morning Top.

Just wanted to share this little tid-bit from our history with you. I know you have celebrated a lot of birthdays but I had no idea....

Another hero of the Mexican war was Sergeant Jack Miller, whose small patrol was ambushed by a force five times its number near Monclova in November 1847. The dragoons were going for their carbines when Miller shouted: "No firing, men! If 20 dragoons can't whip 100 Mexicans with the saber, I'll join the Doughboys and cart a fence rail all my life." The Dragoons charged and killed six Mexicans, wounded thirteen, and captured seventy. Casualties in Miller's unit were limited to only one man wounded and three mounts lightly scratched.
