Lee Kleese - Commanding Officer Company C 1967-1968


Fred Childs of Company C 1967-68 writes: Attached are photos of Capt Lee Kleese of Charlie Company.  They were provided to me by his widow Sue Kleese. 
I don't know exactly when he became the CO of Charlie Company.  Probably after Capt MacManus was KIA 2/16/67.  I came in July of 1967 and he was
the CO at that time and I know for sure he was the CO on 11/17/67 when we lost 3 KIA.  After Kleese the next CO was Konermann and then I think Barron.
