Looking for Charlie Troopers

We are building an all new website to gather as much information and documentation as we can about Charlie Troop in Vietnam. We are especially interested in finding Troopers from this time period. If you are one, or if you know one, please let us know, so that they may be rightfully included in these pages. Thank you!

    I’m looking for Garth Rankin. I want to thank him for saving my life on 7 March 1970 just outside of Song Be.

    I was briefly in touch with Garth around 2002-3. He was in San Antonio; sent me a pic of his Harley. My messages started bouncing. Someone later told me that he ran a bike shop. He and Tim Hope broke my in flying Scouts. Both crazy guys! Mick, I still use your namesake apron 🙂

    I need to apologies for a post I put up a couple months ago of Roger Deel’s death and obituary. The obit I posted was not the Roger Deel that was in C. Company 1/9th 1st Cavalry Air Mobile during the year 1969-1970.
    After I posted that, I received a note from Darrell Deel, the son of the Roger Deel of C. Company, informing me that the Roger Deel was alive and well and that he was Darrell’s father. After a few messages, Darrell gave me Roger’s phone number and mailing address. I took the number and called him the next day and we talked for 1.5 hours. We reminisced about everything we could think of. I told him I had been looking for him on the Internet for a few years but had no luck until I came across the wrong obit. I told Roger if I had not posted the incorrect obit I may still be looking for him. His son Darrell happened to go onto the Cav page and saw the obit, saw the mistake and contacted me.
    I have asked Patrick Bieneman to retract the obit and give Roger’s info to any that would like to contact and talk to him. Unfortunately he does not have a FaceBook account but his wife Betty Deel does. His phone # is 276-944-4110. His mailing address is 28187 Rich Valley Road, Meadowview, VA. 24361.
    Again I apologies for my mistake.
