      When I first opened on the old forum, I chose the name Laikhe67tc in hopes I might find someone in the ridership who had also been in that area in country. In 2014 I did not go on the run, instead making a trip up to Gresham Oregon to meet a long lost buddy with whom I had served as fellow grunts.

      Gary Obrist had thought I had been killed, but when he looked for my name on the Wall, I wasn’t there- so he began a search for me with his brother-in-law that spanned several years with no success. It wasn’t until Bill the brother-in-law saw my name in something about RFTW that caught his attention. I still remember that strange phone call- “Are you the Tom Cameron that…” 45 years!

      To shorten all this, Gary and I have a renewed friendship and Bill wrote it all up. The story can be seen in the December issue of Vietnam Magazine- I found a copy at Barnes and Noble on their extensive magazine rack!

      Just something to pass your time until May….!?
