Captain Richard Leadbetter, me, Mike Ioli


Fellow soldiers and I gathered in Colorado Springs for a reunion of the 127th Army MP Company.    Captain Leadbetter and Mike Ioli were there, plus Dave Suttle, the guy with the turntable whose wife sent him all the latest records; "Pops" Whitney, who helped me  sneak out for my Lyndabar overnight; and Dave Dersheimer, the swift boat waterskier.  A lot of the MPs brought their copies of the book for me to sign.  I brought DVDs of my Vietnam footage for everyone. It was great to see everybody.
