The 6/14 Arty is officially open but is still a work in progress. We hope that it will soon take form and someday proudly stand as a testament to the brave men of the 6th Battalion 14th Artillery Regiment.

The 6/14

" He ain't heavy, He's my Brother. "  - Charles Maldonado -
Charles Maldonado and James Washington take five with a little friendly exercise.
As if humpin' Joes all day wasn't enough.

Charlie was the first person from the 6/14 Association that I spoke to, that was back in 1996. It was due to the numerous conversations with Charlie and the gracious assistance of Craig Harris and Bill Holmes that led to the creation of the 6/14 Arty website.

Charlie sent me the following photos over a year ago and finally I have had the time to add them to The Album.

The convoy's loaded up and heading out so let's all hop on board and take a trip with Charlie to some of the fire bases he worked in and meet some of the Warbonnets he knew around 1968-70.

Our thanks to you Charles for these excellent photographs...
thanks so much for everything.

As always, if you can identify anyone unnamed in these photos please let us know.
