It was honor to have served under Lieutenant Lewis in G Troop, 2nd Squadron, 11th ACR.
The following field photo was taken April 1970 in the Fishhook area along the Cambodian border in Tay Ninh province. Lieutenant Lewis is seen here standing fifth from the left with his men in an after action photo at an ambush site. He was a fine man and one of the very best Blackhorse platoon leaders I had the honor to serve with. He is missed by many of his friends.
