To the right is a letter by Elvin Davis
 to Randy Hibler, dated June 24,1985.

Elvin Davis supplied the names
of the men in the platoon photo listed above,
and their addresses "at the time of entry".

Randy says, "When I talked to him back in 1985
he remembered my grandfather and even knew
where he was from and that he had 2 sons.
I think he said they called him Tex.
He did say my grandfather carried a rope
around with him and that when they first met
Mr. Davis asked if he knew how to use that thing,
so my Amzy told him to take off running.
He did and Amzy roped him.
Mr. Davis said that when Amzy joined the outfit,
that's when they were able to eat good.
I think Amzy would butcher animals so they could eat.
I heard my grandfather was
very good at skinning and cooking".
