In search of a few good men

 

Bill Bertholf, member of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter in Yortown, has hit a road block.
 
The News-View spoke with Bertholf in February about his search for photos of 12 men from DeWitt County who were killed in the Vietnam War. After the article was printed, the calls started coming.
 
“One of our guys — his brother is a retired admiral living in North Carolina. He contacted me from North Carolina to get me a picture.”
 
Bertholf has received photos of all but four of the 12 men he was originally searching for. He is still looking for a photo of James L. Slade Jr., Jesse Herrera, James H. Jackson and Robert E. Rashland, all from Cuero.
