The Battle of Kontum Banner Image


A special thank you to my Battle of Kontum website sponsors. Over the years, many people have asked about helping with the costs of developing and maintaining the Battle of Kontum website. In the past, my wife and I, through my company Black Jack Enterprises Inc., have provided funding for the website, and I also used the income generated through the sale of my book "Reflections From The Web" as a means to provide some of the support for the website. That helped. My hope is that the book "THUNDER: Stories From the First Tour" will also be helpful in providing continued funding of the website.

Over the past years, while my wife and I were still working, we had been able to fund the website. Now, since we have both retired, I have decided to offer those who might be interested, an opportunity to be a Battle of Kontum website sponsor. I am most appreciative for the help I have received from these sponsors.

This page is to acknowledge those who have provided financial sponsorship through a non-tax-deductible contribution. If you are interested in being a sponsor, please let me know by sending an e-mail to: or you may send a check made out to Black Jack Enterprises Inc. to: Black Jack Enterprises Inc., 12750 Jefferson Davis Hwy #343, Chester, VA 23831.

Please indicate that you want to be a sponsor of the website by writing the word "sponsor" in the memo section of your check.

Thank you for your continued support and interest in the Battle of Kontum website.
