Hello Peter,<quoted text>
Hello Boyd, Think Capt. Sweeny was your BC and then Lt. John Walters. I was BC of C 2/41. I can put you in touch w/Johnand Col. Knopp.

I rotated back at the end of 1966, just after the Peden Trophy competition. I was processed out at Ft. Dix on Jan. 3 of '67. CPT Sweeney was the BC of Bravo when I left and 1LT Walters took over shortly thereafter, as I recall. I have spoken with John a number of times as he makes it a point to call on Veterans Day. I vaguely remember LTC Knopp and I assume he took over as CO 2/41. If I remember correctly, MAJ Morgan was leading the battalion when I left. Of course, that was many years ago and a lot of the brain cells are long gone. Do you have any idea of what happened to CPT Sweeney? I think he went over to Nam and made it back okay. Last I heard, he was living in California. I would appreciate any contact info you have on him. Did you know Jim Metelko? I saw on the internet that he ended up a COL before he retired. He may have been before your time in 2/41. Lastly, I have been trying to remember the name of your 1SG. He was a colorful guy and always answered the phone, "Charging Charlie, First Sergeant!"
I hope all is well with you and I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
