To all:
Henry "Doc" Gray and I rode our motorcycles to Springfield, Missouri to visit our Vietnam Darkhorse brother Ben Kuhn.  We spent most of Saturday 02 Oct 2010 with him at the hospital.  Saturday evening we had dinner at Ben's house.  Susan, Ben's wife, insisted that we brave the chaos and join her and all 16 family members as they made their famous taco dinner.  It was a real treat to be invited.  After dinner we followed Susan back to the hospital to spend a few more minutes with Ben and say our farewell.
Ben served incountry with the Darkhorse Troop from January 1969 to January 1970.  As you all remember, Ben was a very brave soldier, and he was bullet-proof.  He has continued to be a brave soldier fighting this terrible cancer that has attacked his body.  Ben is in good spirits and has a large, loving family who support him 24x7.
If you want to send a card to Ben's home:
Ben Kuhn
760 North Fallbrooke Terrace
Springfield, MO 65802
Emails can go to Stacey, Ben's daughter.  welovetotravel4fun@yahoo.com
You can also send them to Larry "Gunner" Gray, and he will forward them to Stacey.
If you can possibly go to Springfield to visit Ben, now is the time to do it.  If you can't go, you can give Ben a phone call via Susan's phone at 417-234-1697.  She is by his side most of the time and is taking the calls.  She welcomes all calls from Ben's Vietnam brothers.  Your calls are very uplifting to Ben.  Ben's daughter Stacey puts out email updates about Ben's condition.
I am enclosing the pictures I took.  The brunette is Susan.  The blonde in the gray sweater is Stacey.  The Please pray for Ben and his family.
