Each fall for the last seven years, members of the Americal Division, Alpha Company 5th/46th 198th Light Infantry Brigade, have joined together for a platoon reunion.  The majority of the group served together in Vietnam from November 1968 –  November 1969.  This year, 15 veterans and 9 wives met at Oak Haven Resort in Sevierville, Tennessee.  Veterans came from Wisconsin, Illinois, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Missouri.
