1st Battalion 22nd Infantry
Students Honor 1/22 Fallen At Chu Moor
Charles "Doc" Shyab
was a medic with Company C of 1/22 Infantry
during the Battle of Chu Moor Mountain in 1968.
Of the twenty Regulars Killed In Action during the fight,
nine were from Company C.
The following story and photos are from Doc Shyab:
I have taught at John Nevins
Andrews School sixth grade in Takoma Park Md. for 13 years.
The school is an SDA sponsored school and the class usually has between 25/30 students.
Each year I have taken them to present a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown
where 4 students randomly picked have gone beyond the ropes and presented a wreath
while Taps are played. It is always a special trip they look forward to all year.
This year for the first time they asked to present a wreath at the wall
after I told them what had happened at Chu Moor.
We found the 20 names from the list on the wall. It was a very touching moment for the class.
We were accompanied by the bus driver who served in the Army in the 50's inJapan
and one of the Mother's whose father is a Vet from Nam.

The website wishes to thank the students of the
6th Grade Class of John Nevins Andrews School

With students like these, the future of our country is in good hands.
