Name Warren Location President

Message It is my sad duty to report the passing on 5 July 2009 of one of the original

196th Cadre NCO's, Bill Kachelmyer, F Trp, 17th Cav, 65-67. Bill trained up

our soldiers from Basic training and then led them in combat in Vietnam.

Bill was really looking forward to our reunion this month. His son asked us to

all to raise a Bud Light in his memory. Rest in Peace brother Bill.
