West Point Roommate
Wayne was my first roommate at West Point. We went through Beast Barracks together. Along with my twenty-nine other classmates killed in Vietnam, Wayne is remembered. Rest in peace, brother.

Honoring Captain Schaltenbrand
I was assigned to 324th Signal Company, and was attached to MACV Advisory Team 69, as a cook. Capt. Schaltenbrand was the only person from either unit that was KIA during my tour of duty. Capt. Schaltenbrand's death had a very large effect on my life, both then, and until this day. I have located Capt. Schaltenbrand's name at both the "Wall" in Washington, and at the "Traveling Wall" in Denver, CO. Capt Shaltenbrand will never be forgotten as long as I am alive. This Memorial contains my new addresses. and

Remembering Wayne on Memorial Day
5/28/07 I just finished putting up the flag at my house this morning. I remember Wayne like I do every Memorial Day. I knew Wayne in Ft Hood before we went to Vietnam. We were both LTs in C Co, 7/6th Inf. He and I were very good friends. I will always remember the fun days we had.

Wayne and I went to Vietnam together and were assigned to Advisory Team 69 in the Mekong Delta. When we reported to the province HQ, the Sergeant Major informed us that there were two assignments with similar duties and responsibilities -to accompany Regional Force rifle companies on combat operations. One assignment was collocated at HQ and the other was in a remote district. SMG said think it over in case the colonel gives you a choice. Wayne wanted nothing to do with HQ and said he'd like the one out in the boonies. The colonel was a West Pointer ('52) and thought he was doing Wayne a favor by assigning him to HQ and me to the boonies. The day Wayne was KIA, his RF company was north of my position. They were supposed to get elements of the 503 Muoi Tre Main Force Battalion on the move and Drive them down towards my RF company (hammer & anvil opn). But Wayne got pinned down in a cemetery. My unit was given a change of mission to head toward his and reinforce it. We joined another RF company but we were both pinned down and could not get to Wayne. About 4pm we heard his radio operator trying to get a dust off since he was wounded. Within a few minutes he came back on to announce Wayne was KIA. We tried to get up there, we just couldn't. He was with a VN officer running between some elevated gravestones when they were both killed. I often thought over the years that I had the job he wanted and he the one I would have taken. I could have been in the graveyard that day and WS might have been alive today.

If I shouldm die...remembrances for CAPT. Wayne Keith SCHALTENBRAND, USA...who died for our country!
If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

We were Lieutenants together in MACV Team 69, and I was with him when he was killed on Tan My Island in the Mekong, Cho Moi, AnGiang. Wayne was one of the good guys. A proud West Point Officer from a proud West Point family. He spoke of his GTO back home, and of the family he loved. For more on Wayne, and a copy of his story in TAPS, a publication dedicated to the West Point fallen, please see this address:
