  • Was the OC of Charlie Company 1975 and was known as, went by the name of Hamish.

  • Dear Mr. Abernathy
    Hello. My name is Wm.T. Ripley. I found your email while searching through your unit’s guestbook. I am a military historian who has been working on contacting veterans of WWII. I began this project in 1986, but am still working hard on it. In early 2013 I began contacting veterans of the Vietnam War. I have a 6 page questionnaire I'd like to send you.

    A bit about me first-
    I'm 44, married, and have 2 kids. I majored in history at Ball State University, and presently work as one of the Natural Science curators at a local museum. I became interested in WWII at age 4 (really) and started collecting uniforms, weapons, equipment, personal items, etc. At 16 I started contacting veterans like I mentioned above.
    I should point out this project has nothing to do with my museum...just me being a big history nerd.

    If interested, let me know. The questions are designed to find out a bit about the "day to day" life as it were. I ask everyone the same questions as I can then compare and contrast answers. It's kind of interesting seeing the differences between units, AO's, and year. There are some questions about combat in particular, but many of them deal more with the material culture of the time. Right now I'm doing this as a personal hobby, but would "someday" like to make this available to other living historians, museum curators, model builders, teachers, that sort of thing.

    I'd also like to ask if you have a photo of yourself while overseas, if you'd be willing to share it. I'm not entirely sure yet, but I'm thinking about doing a compilation book with the replies I get, and would like to include your photo as well.

    I appreciate you taking the time to read this, especially since it is sort of an out of the blue email. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Sincerely,
    Wm.T. Ripley
