Dear Nehl family and friends,
I had the honor of commanding Delta Company/2-16 Infantry from Feb-Sept 1968 in Vietnam. I did not know CPT Nehl except by reputation from those serving with him last year. It is apparent he was a dedicated husband and father, a dedicated professional leader and respected by all. I'm proud the Delta/2-16 Vietnam Vets of my era when called on, stepped up to donate towards having the family travel to Ft Riley last month so he could be memorialized. We Delta Vietnam Vets of 1967-69 will hold out 22nd reunion Aug 1-3 and will remember and toast CPT Nehl as one of our fallen brothers. God bless the family and provide comfort and strength.
LTC, US Army
