A Currahee Brother killed in action (KIA). Guy Shannon was a friendly energetic person that liked to be in the thick of things and he was good at his job.  He was planning to be a career NCO in the Army. _Guy was on a duty station in Korea and became a volunteer for duty in Vietnam.   He and Dave Weindorf hooked up at Ft. Lewis, Washington and they traveled together to South Vietnam.  Both Guy and Dave joined Charlie Company in November 1970.  Guy really enjoyed the since of brotherhood at Charlie Co. and being out in the field patrolling or just sitting around with the guys playing cards while we waited for mission directives.

"Thank you brother for a job well done".  Until we meet again my friend ..... "Currahee"......"Stands Alone"
