I was never in the military but my father, USMC Col. Joseph S. Heitzler, was in Vietnam from 1965 to 1966 in Danang. Dad retired in 1969 after serving 27-years and three wars. I worked with John Bobb from 1987 to 1989 in Saint Louis, MO. Both John and I were Special Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). John transferred out and eventually retired out of Alaska. I remember John as a stoic and quiet man who had a very dry sense of humor. John never said much unless it was time to say something that made a point. I enjoy reading Charlie Company Vietnam. I was sent the Charlie Company site by a fellow Agent Sam Turk, who has since passed on. I remember watching my Dad’s Service Battalion marching on the parade grounds in Kaneohe, HI getting ready to leave for Vietnam in 1965. I was in 4th grade and didn’t realize what or where all those Marines were headed at that time but knew I wouldn’t see dad for over a year. Keep up the great Website. I have passed this on to many of my Vietnam Vet friends who were LRRP’S and Marines who also regularly read you site.

My old associate Tad, (Theodore) left out his very esteemed law enforcement career, even prior to coming to work for us, and all the good work he did for us after I left St. Louis. More importantly, he was a lead co-conspirator, in hiding my surprise 40th birthday party from me. I still remember walking in my house after consuming numerous recreational beverages, and the first person I observed standing in my house was Tad. I then said to myself, what the hell is he doing here? One of the most genuine and nicest people I have ever met. God Bless you, Tad. and your father for his service. Sam Turk was a neighbor of mine, a Vietnam vet also. I miss him tremendously. I missed his funeral due to my own cancer treatment.
