 Additional Information
Last Known Activity

Roy was the best FO I ever worked with. A second tour with the Big Red One, Roy came to my company as a Recon Sergeant, having served the first time by going to Viet Nam with the Big Red One in 1965, and participating in the Battle of Bau Bang. He stayed with me through the passage of three lieutenant FO's, serving the whole time with me as my main artilleryman, the best there was. We war-gamed  constantly, putting 8-Inch (against regulations) 50 meters from our wire. Roy and I were shot at the same time, along with his RTO and several others. I think of you all the time, Roy. Sonny/Bandit 6, Co B, 2nd Bn, 2nd Inf, 1st Infantry Division. Roy was attached from Artillery to  Bravo Company, 2nd Battalion, 2nd Infantry. Sonny Gratzer, Capt, USA Army (Retired)
