A special message to
Jeff Dentice in Muskego,Wisconsin
Thanking you for your efforts and bravery in saving the lives of those
I knew, during the rocket attack in CuChi Vietnam, at the
125th Signal Bn. 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.

From Doc - I AM SHARING
THIS VERY WONDERFUL STORY
JULY 23, 2016
Hello Doc my dear friend and buddy,
Guess what I came across??
This made me cry
when you gave it to me. And it made me cry today.
I am dismantling my office and going through a kazillion pieces of paper - most of
which I am sending to the Library of Congress in Washington DC.
They donít get your original letter though. Iím making them a copy.
Geez Doc this is so heartfelt.
You have embraced your brother and sister vets with such love and compassion -
and a passion for helping tell the stories, and accurately portraying our history.
I was so overwhelmed by
everything taking place during the dedicating of the memorial -
its transfer from New Mexico, the plans for the ceremony, the hundreds of phone calls and
letters, fundraising (yikes Iím glad thats over) and trying to keep everybody happy
(an impossible dream) that I canít remember if I was able to thank everyone or not.
So, now Iím saying it!
ďThank you Doc!Ē.
Itís not enough though. You and the Wisconsin vets carried me through a very difficult time.
Was it you that called and asked to have an extension on the Whistle Stop TourĒ?
It was not scheduled. I made the big decisions on that tour (the buck for better and worse
stopped with me, sigh) and when I got the request I said YES - if Wisconsin wants a
stop they get it!!!!!! You guys laid the groundwork for our memorial.
And, you kept me sane. For awhile there I thought I had more enemies than friends.
This letter means the world
to me and all those you thanked and wrote it for.
We all thank you.
Your sister veteran always,
CHRISTMAS WITH THE VETS SHOW

JEFF DOC DENTICE - FOUNDER / COORDINATOR
Doc has put
together a truly remarkable Veterans web site
Indeed, All Veterans can easily use this site to keep abreast of upcoming events, both in
Wisconsin and nationally, because this site does not skimp on a fantastic wealth of information.
Highly tasteful special effects are blended with pictures and text in a way that only a combat medic
could have conjured up to provide the viewer with a rather overwhelmingly powerful experience.
Numerous links are also provided and the background music is bound to bring back memories as well.

Encourage America Team salutes YOU for your your dedication and service
and certainly for making a difference here and at home in Wisconsin! We salute YOU!
First off, I would like to thank you for your wonderful and informative
Veterans Website. Both of my parents were in the war (they met
in-country in 1967 and were married a year later) so I really appreciate
reading about other's experiences and trials through the war. I grew up
hearing all about my parent's experiences, so I honestly feel very close
to the Vietnam War and its veterans. Thank you for your service. My
reason for this letter is about your "Donut Dolly" site which
discusses the Red Cross girls' work in the war. My mother, Glenna
(Sheeran) Terrell was a Donut Dolly from 1966-67 with the 4th ID, 25th
ID, and finally the 1st ID. As I looked through the site, I was amazed
to find a picture of her serving coffee to some of the troops in Cu Chi,
were she was originally stationed. She had never seen that picture and
I still can't believe I just happened to come across it on your site. (I've
attached the picture from your site as well). She is very interested in
contacting some of her old "war buddies", so any information you have on
this, we'd really appreciate.

I was impressed with YOUR Veteran Web Site. I was moved to tears,
as I spent almost an hour visiting your site, and the web links. I am honored
to add your site to our Local UAW Veterans Page. Visiting your site has made my
day, it has brought back found memories of my service time. I am in the
beginning stages of web design. I put together our Local web site, as a way
of keeping our veteran members informed. Once again thank you for the
opportunity to link to your site. God Bless you brother. Welcome Home!!!

Tom and I were surfing your site this morning. What can I say? It is
so beautiful and me being the emotional person that I am, tears
immediately filled my eyes. It is certainly visible and "I can feel"
just how much vets, their issues, and your contributions to the UAW
means to you. Thank you so much for your efforts to our justly cause.
Tom has talked and talked about his New Glaus trip. I am so happy that
he went and enjoyed the weekend so well. Looks like this will be a
yearly trip. Hope the gang that goes with him will get bigger each
year. I'd like to go along too since I accompany Tom to a lot of vets
stuff but I also like the idea of "boys weekend" out.
Thanks Doc for all you have contributed and sacrificed for me. Thanks
for being a good friend to Tom. Peace to you -- and welcome home.
