FORT JENNINGS — The “C” Company, 1st Battalion, 27th Infantry Regiment Wolfhounds are a group of 25 dedicated and passionate men and women who re-enact Vietnam War-era scenarios at outdoor events and their performance at Fort Fest Saturday evening was highly emotional and moving for every member of the audience.

Member Terry Giffin said the group of two to three guys began Civil War and World War II re-enactments 10 years ago.

It has been said that there are three sides to every story – yours, mine and then there is the truth. Although I have used that expression many times, I have to say this story only has one side. It is a story about my memories and as such, well, it’s a story told through just this set of eyes. It was April 16, 1978 at 11:00 p.m. at an address I was soon to become very familiar with – 350 W. High Street, Lima Ohio. Although I had been working for the government for years, this was my first day doing the actual job of an incoming mail clerk and I was petrified.
