Greg was asked by the 101st Airborne Division
Currahee Association to write about his experience at Fire Base Maureen.
He agreed and the article appeared in the organizations magazine. Soon
afterward, "The Purple Heart" magazine asked to run the story.
Randy Mills who has written a number of books was writing a book about
the battle at Fire Base Maureen and heard about Greg's story and asked
permission to use the story in his book. Again, Greg agreed.
When I asked permission to run the story, Greg was a little hesitant.
He thought that people might think he was bragging. "A lot of people
go through tough times in war," he said. I persisted explaining that
I knew of no one who who believe that he was bragging. He finally agreed.
I thank all soldiers for serving our country. I especially thank Greg
for sharing this story about one of his experiences in Vietnam.
