Steve Grubb is fondly remembered by the soldiers with whom he served from “B” Company of the 1st Battalion (Mechanized), 50th Infantry. His widow is our first honorary Life Member.

Visit the Website of the Association formed by these 1/50th Vietnam Vets at: http://www.ichiban1.org

Post a note on our “Message Board” and possibly some of our members who served with Steve and/or his widow will respond. Search our site for photos and other documentation and/or contact me (Jim Sheppard, Association Historian) at the e-mail address provided here for details about our Memorial for our men lost in action at the current day 1/50th Battalion Headquarters at Fort Benning, Georgia. Memorial Wreath Laying Ceremonies are held every two years at the reunions of the 1/50th Association.
