Frank, first of all congratulations on your Award. I intend to read some of your books. You deserved many more medals as a result of your military service. What a life you have led. I served with you in Vietnam. I was a Sapper attached to you while you were at the Horsehoe (I think it was 2 Pl A Coy 6RAR). I recall you were a great cook and could do wonders with ration packs, as well as a great leader of men. I was known as "Dutchy" but I doubt if you would remember me as I was not with you for long I think. I would love to make contact with you as I am trying to piece together my time at the Horseshoe with the "Grunts" who I really enjoyed being with.

Para Frank,(y desde luego para Lurdes) un gran abrazo y mi mas emocionado sentimiento de alegria por este reconocimiento, los que tenemos el placer y honor de conocerte estamos felices!

Embarrassed that I have not before now heard of Frank Alcorta.

Great story. Thanks too for the list of books.

I agree wholeheartedly with Barbara. A medal well deserved.
A nice story for a change and what a life story, amazing.

Congratulations Frank. A medal to wear with pride. You deserve it!
