From Chuck Steward: "When we met again in 1979 after some 10 years, it was just like we saw each other yesterday. Your family made me feel at home the entire weekend, I only wish we could have been able to meet again before your passing. You and Joey were my first dog team and I am truly grateful that you and Joey always kept us from getting into serious shit. Rest assured, we will meet again in the after life, I only hope they serve rum and coke there, that was our drink of choice that weekend. R.I.P. buddy"

Jerry W. Scott died in September 1994.
He served on CTT #13 attached to the 1st Infantry Division in 1967-68. R.I.P.

"Jerry Scott was one of those “unflappable” guys.  We trained in BJWS together on the same CTT team #13.  Scottie was a big person, probably 200 lbs when we started and, like the rest of us, was down 50 lbs when we finally arrived in Vietnam. His family was still in Germany at that point and there was trouble with his wife getting monthly paychecks – but we finally got that straightened out through payroll and the Red Cross.  But for a man his size, I knew of no one who could move as quietly through the jungle as he could.  And many times we would end up in the enemy’s lap before we were ready to be.  “Scottie” would just stand there with a big smile and you could read his mind – “Gotcha!!”He is sorely missed by his team – we loved him." Donald R Hendricks, CPT USAR ret (former CO of CTT13 & 61st IPCT)
