    My dear Mrs. Mott, please accept the condolences of the Troopers of the 11th Armored Cavalry’s Veterans of Vietnam and Cambodia. Your husband was a dedicated and courageous warrior, one of us, one of our own. He served honorably in H Company of the 2nd Squadron in 1966 and 67 with the Legendary Blackhorse Regiment as the regiment deployed across much of Vietnam. A respected trooper, he was revered as his service inspired bravery and gallantry among the men. Wayne Mott’s name will be published in our newsletter, Thunder Run, acknowledged solemnly during the Memorial Service at our 2024 Annual Reunion, and enrolled on the scroll of our honored dead. As grateful Americans, we pause and salute a brave man who never ceased to serve his fellow warriors and was willing to sacrifice, and even put his life on the line for his country, his family and his fellow man. Chaplain Bill Karabinos (11th ACVVC).
