AWARDS / LETTERS TO "DOC"

A special message to Jeff Dentice(Doc) Muskego,Wisconsin.
Thanking you for your efforts in saving the lives of those I knew
after the rocket attack at CuChi Vietnam at the 125th Signal Co.in early
1968 on the perimeter. You were the only Medic that came from the 25th Med Bn.
after  the call for help. You treated the badly wounded, and there were many,
and you evacuated them all to the 12th Evac hospital down the road.
They had sucking chest wounds-shrapnel wounds-broken legs and burns,
and you treated them all. You ran right into the bunker that was hit by
a 122 rocket and saw death and smelled flesh burning, and did all you
could to save the lives of my friends. You did this all while we were
still under attack and receiving incoming rounds. You should, in my opinion
have received the Medal of Honor. Its a shame you were not put in for it.
Many men from the 125th Signal Bn. owe you their life, and they and the officers,
should have submitted your name for the Medal of Honor.
