Subject: April 6, 1968 G/2/26 Hill 700

Hello everyone. I was saddened to learn of Jimmy Everly's passing. He was a great man and talked to me and had helped me in every way that he could but we never could come up with the answer.

I've been trying to determine the name and location of the Gunny Sgt. that saved my dads life on April 6, 1968 Hill 700. My dad was the radioman with Overstreet that day though he was not supposed to be. When he was hit with a grenade he had just called in Mortor rounds and this Gunny, whoever he was, risked his own life to save my dad.

I've been trying to determine who he is since around the Spring of 1998 I believe and I've had no luck. If anyone can remember who the "new" Gunny was at this time I would be grateful!

The only thing my dad remembers is that he was new, to him anyway as he had just come in off a "sick" navy ship. He also thinks he may have been hit in the face from flying debris from either enemy fire or the mortars that were hitting down around them.

Thank you so much and Eric Smith if you see this, long time no talk to, lost your email address please write!!

Julie Rader yeah married a 3rd time but was Boruff, and Hayes and of course Alexander ... my dad James F. Alexander.
