Bev and I have been lucky enough to be able to travel a lot and that includes three trips to Vietnam
for business. One coincided with Vietnam Veterans Day at Long Tan, no medals allowed but
“the Badge was back”.
Managed to find the Company lines and that was a very emotional moment for me.
We also included a tour of the Cu Chi Tunnels and yes, Bev had to fire an M60 and
try the rat hole entry into a tunnel, funny how Caucasian women have some bigger parts
than their Asian counterparts, entry into the rat hole required some anatomical repacking.
So all good here in Perth, and let history record that this website driven by Geoff Dixon
and managed by his son Shane, will for generations to come, demonstrate how professional
soldiers still maintain those high standards in their personal lives and offer them to their children.
The standards were acquired from other professional soldiers during training and active service
40+ years past now.
In closing I will share with you my personal motto,
“Headstones are not big enough to list all the things you didn’t do in life”
