Letter written to Captain Ed Smith

by Ambrose Ward, Eugene's Dad

after learning of his son's loss in Vietnam

Special thanks to Ceilia Stratton, the Curator of the 4th Infantry Division Museum

Fort Hood, Texas who was kind enough to send me a copy of this letter that 

Captain Ed Smith had previously donated to the 4th Division's Vietnam Archives 

To Ed Smith,  A/2/12's CO in the Spring of 1967. We who served with you knew of your 

professionalism  and your loyalty to our unit. Thanks for the lead in locating this material and your

superior leadership as the unit was reorganizing after the Battle Suoi Tre
