Bob Babcock B 1/22 RVN addresses 1/22 soldiers. Bob writes:
"Those are soil samples from Utah Beach and from Vietnam - and a piece of concrete from the Crisbecq bunker
that 22nd Infantry finally took out, with great casualties, on about D+6. 
I gave them those soil samples to take to Iraq with them - and asked that they send me a sample of soil from Iraq
to add to our collection of soil samples from all the places where the 4ID has fought. "
