I am trying to locate a man who was a remarkably positive influence in my life as a young boy scout in 1969-1970. At that time he was SSgt James Hendrix, a medic in the HHC 1/327 Inf, 101st ABN. He was in San Antonio in 1968-69 recovering from GSW injuries received in Vietnam, and for some reason decided to take on a no-kidding rag-tag bunch of Boy Scouts at Trinity Baptist Church in San Antonio. He was a remarkable influence on all of us, and we all directly gained from knowing him, something I was really not nearly able to appreciate as much then as I have long since then.
Anyway, I was digging through some old junk (courtesy of what will probably be my last PCS move after 30 years AD) and was amazed to come across several letters that he had sent me from Vietnam after he had returned following his return to full duty. I was stunned to read these, not having seen them since I had 1st read them with the eye of a clueless teenager in 1970. I read them now with the eyes of one with 30 military years' service, and the background of literally scores of accounts (some personally given to me, others I have read) regarding the Vietnam War and only now can dimly begin to see what he was relating to me of his experience and time there in the jungle, something that was simply too utterly alien for a young boy to grasp, other than I was so pleased he took the time to write me, as we all idolized him.
So, armed with the information on the envelopes (I am withholding his SSN for his own securities sake), I am hoping someone can help me track this man down so I can thank him for the strong positive impact he had on my life, now better armed with the hindsight of more than >40< years.
Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated, I will happily pursue any lead, no matter how trivial it may seem.

Today is Memorial Day and I my thoughts are on all of those who served and the love and understanding we share for one another. I have also been thinking of those who made the ultimate sacrifice. I took my wife to visit the Calvary Christian Center, Yuba City CA, to see a "Grateful Nation Remembers". They do this every Memorial Day weekend and also have a webpage. Highly recommended.

I read a interesting item in this month's "The Always First Brigade", it's a new book written by our own ABU, Galen G. Mitchell 65/66 VN vintage. The piece didn't have an email address so I looked it up and found two for Galen. I ordered my copy and anxious to read it. FATEUNKNOWN@Comcast.net and email@example.com are two emails you can contact Galen for a copy, or go to Amazon.com to check it out.
