Colonel Jack Logan has written his autobiography

Postby Niner Alpha » Tue Dec 01, 2020 7:52 pm

Col. Jack Logan, the last remaining former 6th of the 31st battalion commander, has written a memoir of his life including his time with the battalion. The title is: The Path I Chose. More information to follow. All of us who went to the Branson reunion will never forget his address to us at the Memorial service for its sincerity and humble appreciation for the service the men of the battalion gave their country as a combat battalion in Vietnam. I look forward to reading his book. He has mailed me a copy today as one of the early select few he will be giving free copies.

Col. Logan mailed me his book on December 1, 2020. It arrived today, December 12, 2020. Thank you US Postal Service for taking the oxcart delivery route. His book is a self published volume of 227 pages tracing the high points of his 90 years of life. He doesn't have his book listed anywhere for sale as far as I know. If you email me I can explain more about what I understand his intentions are with the book...or email him directly. Just few images of the front and back cover and a scan of the brass plate going away gift he was given on his change of command with the battalion will be added in links to the album since the photo upload isn't working at this site.

It's about his life as autobiography and there is only one chapter on his Vietnam years. It's more like an accounting of what his 90 years of life was like. I've only just got the book and haven't started reading it yet.

He left as BN Commander just a few weeks before I got to the 6/31st, so
I don't remember him at all.
