This page is in HONOR of my GOOD FRIEND Danny Weasenforth.
I have never met Danny face to face however we have been friends for a few years now via the Internet.
I first met Danny while cursing the Internet and looking at other veterans web sites.
I signed his GuestBook and we started emailing each other.
We found out that we were in the same area at the same time.
He asked me to look at his photo album and around the last page to look at the last picture.
I did and emailed him that it was what was called the “Black Virgin” Mountain or Neui Bu Den (Spelling?).
He told me I was one of the first to name it and we have been friends ever since.
We served in Vietnam at approximately the same time and in similar areas.
Who knows, we may have seen each other in Vietnam?
What a small world huh?
We both are disabled veterans.
We both have built web sites and are helping veterans with similar disabilities
And those who need help in finding and filing the proper paper work for veteran’s compensation
Along with what support and help a non-professional can offer.
I may say non-professional however I mean soldiers who have ‘Been There, Done That”
And are willing to do their best to help others.
We both continue to do so today!
