my father served in the 82nd airborne/military police., I have been trying to find out information about him for some time, as I'm pretty sure that he enlisted back in 1949 or 50 but I know that when I was just a baby they wouldn't let him jump anymore so he jus got out if anyone could give me any info on him I would very much appreciate it as he believed in his country as well as he fought for his country. he passed away in 1992 but i have not been able to obtain any of his records as my stepmother would not talk to us anymore after his passing. so if you can help me or not or lead me in the right direction would be a big comfort to my family as we have nothing please let me know if you can further assist us in any way. it would be a very big big help thank you very much for your time.  5314 e.mt.houston houston, tx 77093 281-442-6005 .

Looking for anyone who can help my father( CHARLES PATRICK JAQUISH) Air Force, below is a quote from him regarding October 1969. "At Camp Evans I was attached to the 101st airborne, I believe it was the 3rd brigade. My duties were to go with a South Vietnamese Lt in a Radio Jeep and call in airstrikes on suspected or verified enemy positions found by recon patrols and the Lrrps. Sometimes they would drop us off by chopper if it was too far from camp evans or not accessible by jeep. We usually went toward the Ah Shau Valley Region." He is trying to prove that he was actually incountry, b/c all of his records were highly classifiend and have since been destroyed. Thanks Stephen

I am trying to find information on my cousin, SFC Russell Carrell Fordham. He was killed in Quang Tri on 4 Sep 69. He was in the 101st Airborne, and his platoon (?) was called "The Executioners." I got this information from a book called Battles in the Monsoon written by Samuel L. Marshall. A picture of my cousin taken a few weeks before he was killed is in the book. I was only a small girl when he went away and do not remember a lot about him. I've been trying for several weeks to find anything or anyone in order to give his mom some kind of peace, but she passed away just 2 weeks ago. I am still determined to find someone that may have known him, as I am one of a few of his family that is left. Thanks for any help...

The problem is that I don't know where to go...I would be very interested in seeing some of the Country where large battles took place. Any suggestions along with how to get there (any idea of cost?) would be most appreciated. Also, would undetinated mines, etc. be a concern in such area's? Thank You.

My name is Dale Lewis, assigned to A Co. 2nd/501st April 1970. I joined the Co. on May 5th, 1970 on FSB Henderson. As you know we were overrun the following morning and suffered tremendous loss. Of the 33(?) KIA, 2 went missing, Sgt's. Teran and Kier's remains were recently identified and returned to family members. I first returned to Vietnam in 1994 in a personal effort to account for MIA's and have made numerous trips over the years. I presently live in Danang and have turned my attention to going back to FSB Henderson. In 2000 I was able to locate FSB Henderson and photo it from a distance, the crater left by the ammo dump going up is quite obvious. I'm hoping to return on Sep. 2nd, 2002 and spend a few days on top. I say hoping as the trip to Henderson will start with a short boat ride crossing the river and then by foot to the top. I expect the trip to the top will take approx. 24 hrs. It is a trip I have long looked forward to but worry my age (53) may be an obstacle in my desire to return. When we were hit on Henderson I was RTO for Lt. Knight, also in my fighting position were unknown Sgt. and medic. I was on last chopper out and have often wondered what happened in the days following May 6, 1970. Thanks for web site, just what I needed here in Vietnam. afarside@pmail.vnn.vn

Welcome home, everybody. I know this is going to sound totally nuts, but please hear me out. I'm 24 years old, but from the time I was a small child I had recurring dreams of flying over a jungle, ending with a bright flash of light. As time went on, more details appeared, and ultimately I heard the name "Michael Kelley". Often in the dreams, I was the door gunner. Through the internet, I've begun doing research and have found that there was in fact a SP4 Michael Patrick Kelley who was a door gunner killed on March 26, 1967, in Hoa Nghia Province, South Vietnam, from the 82nd Medical Battalion. At present, I'm a trauma nurse who intends to become a flight nurse (on helicopters) when I gain more experience. I'm curious to know if anyone out there knew SP4 Kelley and would mind e-mailing me to discuss this man's life. Thanks!

I remember it from a movie about Custer, but I hadn't realized it was used in Viet Nam (or at least in movies about Viet Nam.) I know it is supposed to have been Custer's favorite song or something, but how is it connected to the Viet Nam War?

Just wanted to send you an update. I have now found three men who knew my uncle in Vietnam. His Squad leader, Floyd Turnley, and two guys who helped him out the night he died, David DeSoucy and Michael Christensen. I have spoken with both of them on the phone and both are super guys. David got in touch with me by looking at your website. He lives in California, but volunteered for security at the Olympics in Salt Lake. He remembered that one of the other guys, Christensen, was from Salt Lake, so he decided to look him up while he was there. He was unable to locate him, so David called the Salt Lake Tribune and they agreed to write an article to try to find him. Within hours after the article was printed, they found Michael Christensen. He called me the next day. It was wonderful to be able to speak to him. He said they gave him a medal for helping my uncle that night, and he insisted that I have this medal. David and Michael met again and they did a follow up story in the newspaper and I have attached it. Thought you may want to put a story on your website about it. It might help to show people there is hope in finding out information and finding friends.

It is just amazing at the information I have gotten just by putting a message on your site. I really appreciate you helping me in this. I asked David what prompted him to go to the website, and he said it was when he received his renewal notice in the mail. I will send a copy of the first article later, in case you want to use both. It really is a cool story!!

THANK YOU FOR CREATING SUCH A WONDERFUL SITE FOR THE VETS THAT WERE NEVER PROPERLY THANKED! ON BEHALF OF THOSE WHO EITHER DON'T CARE NOR UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU WENT THROUGH, I THANK YOU ALL! THAT PROBABLY WON'T MAKE YOU FEEL MUCH BETTER, ESPECIALLY SINCE I ONLY KNOW BITS AND PIECES OF WHAT THE HELL CALLED VIET NAM WAS LIKE THROUGH THE LOVE OF MY LIFE, GLADSTONE "SPEEDY" EDDS -- SERVED WITH PATHFINDERS FOR 3 TOURS AND RETURNED TO GET HIS GREEN BERET. I NEVER TOLD HIM HOW PROUD I WAS OF HIS ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND UNSELFISHNESS...HE COULD HAVE BEEN PERCEIVED AS BEING A BIT COCKY ON THE OUTSIDE IF YOU DID NOT KNOW HIM, BUT HE WAS A SOFTIE ON THE INSIDE. HE WAS KILLED OCT. 25, 1975, IN HIGH, MASS (FT. DEVANS)10TH SPECIAL FORCES GROUP. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM ANYONE WHO MAY HAVE KNOWN HIM, AS I AM PUTTING TOGETHER A BOOK OF MEMORIES OF THIS GREAT MAN IN ORDER FOR THE WORLD TO KNOW WHAT BEING BRAVE AND LOVING ALL AT THE SAME TIME IS ALL ABOUT!

UNFORTUNATELY, DURING A SPLIT IN OUR RELATIONSHIP, WE BOTH MARRIED THE WRONG PEOPLE AND LIVED TO REGRET IT AND HAD MADE A PACT TO RECTIFY THAT SITUATION WHEN HE RETURNED FROM HIS MISSION IN '75. SINCE WE NEVER GOT ALL THINGS SQUARED AWAY, AND WENT ABOUT OUR LIVES TOGETHER, I HAVE LIVED MY LIFE WITH BITTERSWEET MEMORIES. I CAN NEVER LIVE EVERYDAY LIKE A HOLIDAY AND EVERY NIGHT LIKE A SATURDAY NIGHT WITHOUT HIM. I CAN SAY THAT I AM NOT A "LEG" BECAUSE OF THIS MAN MADE OF TRUE GRIT! MY DREAM IS TO JUMP ONE MORE TIME, BUT IT WILL NOT BE THE SAME WITHOUT HIM THERE TO LAUGH AT ME! WHILE HE WAS IN NAM, HE HAD A CAPTAIN BY THE NAME OF COOPER, FIRST NAME DAVE (I BELIEVE). IF ANYONE OUT THERE KNOWS ANYTHING OF EITHER SGT. GLADSTONE "SPEEDY" EDDS, PLEASE CONTACT ME DIRECTLY. IN ADDITION, IF ANYONE KNOWS THE WHEREABOUTS OF HIS FORMER WIFE AND HIS CAPTAIN, WITH WHOM THE WIFE CARRIED ON AN AFFAIR BEFORE AND AFTER SPEEDY'S DEATH, I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT THAT AS WELL, AS THERE ARE A FEW THINGS I WOULD LIKE TO SQUARE AWAY. I HOPE I AM NOT PERCEIVED AS VINDICTIVE AND UNKIND AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, BUT I DO FEEL BOUND TO LOCATE THESE FOLKS AND LET THEM KNOW THAT NOBODY WAS FOOLED, AND I WOULD DESIRE TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT SINCE I AM THE ONE LEFT BEHIND TO DO THE DEED. PLEASE HELP ME IF YOU CAN WITH ANY PART OF THIS AND I HOPE YOU DON'T FEEL THAT I HAVE SPOKEN OUT OF BITTERNESS IN THE LAST PARAGRAPH, BUT THERE WERE NEVER MANY SPECIAL PEOPLE IN MY LIFE BUT "SPEEDY" WAS AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE OF WHAT I BELIEVE MANY OF YOU REPRESENT AND THAT I WISH I COULD SEE MORE OF TODAY!

My old Friend, Wes Carey, spoke to me on the phone the other day from Seattle, Washington. He told me he was just completing a project that he wanted me to review - "Letters To The Wall". He knew I'd be interested, because like him. I was once a young man serving my Country in the Republic of Vietnam, just as my older Brother had. Wes said he was mailing me a tape, and he made sure he had my address in Florida correct. I asked that he send 2 copies, as I wanted to send one to my Brother.

I was pretty excited when the tape arrived. I took it to work with me the day after I received it, and sat it on top of my desk. I carried it home with me that afternoon, but for some reason, I put off watching it. I emailed Wes and told him, "I'll take a look at it this weekend and get back to you."

Vietnam was 30 years ago for me.

I was on my home computer Saturday Afternoon and checked my email and found that Wes had just sent me a short one, "Have you watched LTW yet?" I hadn't. My wife was gone for the day, with her friend, down to Ft Myers to see old friends. I was home alone. I closed down my computer and went in to the kitchen and cooked a couple of hamburgers, watched a little T.V.. Then finally, I picked up one of the copies of the Film Wes had sent me, off the Dining Room Table, opened the box it had come in, tore the plastic wrapping and pulled out the tape. I went to my son's room and sat on his bed and put "Letters To The Wall" in his VCR.

I watched and listened intently, as a daughter spoke of the day she and her Mother were told her Father was missing in action, as two Men related their Dad's last words spoken to them, as if they'd had the same Father, "watch after your Mom and your sisters, take care of them while I'm gone." Then Wes came on the screen and spoke of his old Friend Charlie, who'd forfeited his life in action in Vietnam, of the day his life changed. A Medic spoke of his Comrades in Arms, proud he'd been there with them to serve. A Nurse spoke of the young Men whose shot and mangled bodies came through her hospital, frightened young men who she reassured, without knowing whether they would live or die. She recalled running her hand through their hair and telling them soothingly "everything's going to be okay, you're going to be okay." And tears began to well in my eyes, coming from the darkest recesses of my heart, as I listened to a Mother tell of the last time she saw her son, a young Marine ordered to the Republic of Vietnam. My Mother you see, saw off two sons with orders to Vietnam some 5 years apart. Oh God, what she must have felt, but each of us came home again.

Then each, in their turn spoke of the day they visited The Wall. They searched out the location of their Father, Friend, Son, in the log at The Wall that lists the names in chronological order of the year they died and maps where their names will be found on The Wall. I saw them each, before the black granite, at the names of those they so loved. Each related the feeling of peace that welled inside them as they etched the names over white paper. A Mother and Father who lost their son, whose grief had been too great to console one another, in touching his name on The Wall find solace and understanding of the grief they share. A daughter leaves pictures of her children for her Dad whose name stands there, a son writes his Father a letter assuring him he's taking care of the Family, A Friend, my Friend, writes a letter to "old Charlie" to tell him what he's done with his life. He shares with Charlie that his life meant something and that he'd gone on from Vietnam in service to America.

The Park Service in charge of maintaining The Wall, describe the tribute of letters, pictures and medals left there. They thought at first, it was something that would slow down as the years went by, but instead it increased. They kept and catologued each item and today the items themselves are a part of this Tribute to the Men who served their Nation in one of its most controversial Wars.

In viewing "Letters To The Wall", I realized, the Vietnam Memorial doesn't just honor the Men whose names are found there. It doesn't just honor the Men who served our Nation in the struggle in Vietnam. The Vietnam Memorial Honors us ALL.

Galloping Pictures production of the documentary "Letters To The Wall" is poignant in its simplicity. It's "not about war"..."It's not about politics...."It's about people...The ones that are here, and the ones who didn't make it back." "Letters To The Wall" is truly about the healing that takes place there. 58,000 names are etched in the black Granite of The Wall that is the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C.

A Professional Production by Galloping Pictures, "Letters To The Wall" is itself a tribute to all the Men who gave their lives in the villages, cities, jungles and on the rivers in Vietnam, and to the Men who served alongside them, who made it back. Yes, it made me cry. It took me to a place I had never been before, and it took me home. A must see film.

I sent an email to Trudi Evans, niece of Avenger James "Michael" Holmes. I was stunned and brought to tears when I saw her photos and info on the avenger site and recognized the name but could barely recognize the photos. It's been over 30+ years. Anyway, I considered him as a friend and was the medic who pulled him out of the ambush kill zone on 102268. He died as we worked on him, AK round through the chest. Doc Duece

My name is Chuck Malott and, at the prodding of Roger Barski, I am gathering information for a book concerning FB Airborne, particularly the night of May 13, 1969. Roger really wants this story told and has asked me to help. As this project is just getting off the ground, I need as much information, insight, and recollections as I can gather. Any information sent to me, including pictures, will be copied and returned. I was in Nam in 71-72 with Co D 51st Inf. I now teach high school English and this will be my first book. I'd like it to be worthy of the men who served, survived, and died. Roger has already given me the after action report along with some sketches of the firebase. I also have his Silver Star Awards. He will be my main advisor on this project. Any information regarding the initial insertion into the area, the building of the site, daily life while manning the site, the days leading up to the attack, the attack itself, and the days following the attack will be most helpful.

Name: Frank J. Dutra. 
Date: 10 Nov 2003

I was with A CO 2/501st in 1970. I was with the first plt, first sq leader, under SSGT. Joe Ludwick. I'm writing this e-mail to clear up an issue I read in a book not to long about about A CO 2/501st or at least tell my side of the story. In the book I was refereed to as the "druggie" SGT. Today I would just like to set the records straight. Yes, it's true that I did smoke pot while I was in the rear area's, never in the field. As most of you can recall we had two types of people, either you were a Head or you were a Drinker. I'm not trying to point fingers at anyone, as I do know and accept the fact that we all did the best we could to take care of each other.

I do remember some of the details, such as the night when we all were pinned down outside of LZ Ripcord. It didn't look like we were going to make it out of a pretty differcult fire fright. The LT yelled out " what do you guys what to do live forever". At that point most of the Plt. stood up and all at once advanced on the NVA. We lost a lot of good men that night.
I also remember the next day as I was walking point we came across three NVA on a trail and we opened up on them. We had two KIA's and the other was in bad shape. We called back to our six and he said that we had three KIA's "do you understand", we understood and took care of business.
I'm not sure if people remember me or even if they what too. I just want to set the record straight that I might not have been the best military orientated person but I took care of my people.

The book said that I refused to go to the field and the book was right. I did refuse to accept a Op order to the same AO that we were in the night before. We came in for a three day stand down and to replace the men we lost. At around midnight that same night we were given an Op order stating that we needed to go back out to that same AO in the morning. The whole team got together and decided that we would refuse the Op order.
Well in the morning when we were in formation and the birds ready, the CO gave us our marching orders and I reported that we were not going to support his Op order. The CO asked that all those refusing the order to step forward. At that time I was the only one who stepped forward. Yes, all by myself. I didn't say much to anyone nor did I ever say who was involved. I just took what was coming to me like a man. I losted my stripes which was no bid deal as I was able to get them back and them some within eight months. I must mention that I Op order was canceled and during a discharge review board in MA in 1974 it was found that the Op order was not required and not supported by command. I was awarded back pay for the reduction in rank.

After I left the 101st I was sent over to the 155 Assault Hel Co by the Cambodia boarder were I stayed for eight months before going stateside. I served a total of seventeen years with the service before coming down with NHL (cancer) due to agent orange and received 100% disability. Alot of things were said and done in Viet Nam and some that we all are not proud of. I try to think about the positive things that we did and that's how I'm able to deal with life. Sure, I'll never forget those ruff times but I'm able to move on. It was a war and we all did what we had to do to survive. I don't expect for most people to understand some of the things that were said or done in Viet Nam but I just wanted to provide the other side of the story.

Regardless of the units feelings for me, I want to welcome each and everyone home to this great country. I do hope to meet you all soon.

One of my best friends, Jerry Smith was KIA on 22 Feb 68 near Camp Eagle. Do you know if anyone in your organization knows the circumstances of his death. The only information I heard was that his position was overrun and he died during the ensuing firefight . I was a pallbearer at his funeral and have only recently attempted to find out how he died. Are there any  combat action reports available for that date? Can you suggest any alternative sources of information on my friend? As Navy veteran myself who did not serve in Viet Nam, I admire and respect your individual sacrifice in the service of our country. God bless and keep you and all your fallen comrades.

Name: Robert "Dale" Wondercheck
Email: cwondercheck@bannerhealth.com
Date: 20 Jun 2003

I am trying to help my husband, Robert "Dale" Wondercheck - possibly known as "Lil Buddy" or "Tiny" - He was in Vietnam August 1970 thru February 1971. He was with the 67th maintenance, and stationed at Camp Eagle, attached to the 101st. Very soon after his arrival in Nam, he became a Company Officer jeep driver. He traveled with ammo convoys, and one particular event seems to be the root of his PTSD problem. He remembers mortar fire on the convoy going around a corner in front of him (some place in Laos), he remembers a flash, and the rest has found a buried place in his mind. He does remember driving back without the convoy or any other escorts by taking a short cut through rice patties in North Vietnam, trying to get back to Camp Eagle. If anyone remembers this event or remembers him, please e-mail me so I can print notes off for him. He will be going into a PTSD program in the near future trying to find himself during that 6 month period in Vietnam. Any and All h! elp or contact will be appreciated!

I am writing because my brother was in Vietnam right out of high school around 1968 and 1969. he was in anke vietnam. i believe he was a helicopter machine gunnist. he won the bronze star and is in big trouble. my brother was only 19yrs old. he never recieved any kind of mental health care even though i remember he must have needed it desparately. i w! ish i had the room to tell ya'll everything i have to say. he is a wonderful man and brother and so many thing have just collasped and only in the last 7yrs or so. i am helpless to help him. he was married when he came home and although we all saw the changes, he is a strong person and managed to live a normal life. but about 7 to 10 yrs ago, he changed. i would like to give details, but i don't even know if anyone cares about it. he is currently serving 30 to life, and he did not even kill anyone. can someone please help me. i don't have money and i don't even know if he can be helped. but please someone help him. please write to him. my tears can not help any longer. he would love to hear from anyone who would write to him and lift his spirits. ADDRESS IS: TRINIDAD CONSTANCIO III 836479 4 F08 RT 2 BOX 4400 GATESVILLE, TX 76597 he was a police officer at our home town of Palacios,Tx. he is a good man that does not deserve what has happened to him. I firmly believe if he had received mental counseling he would have remained strong and not given in to weaknesses that caused the tragedy that happened. thank you for letting me post this, i almost feel like i just had some counseling myself. i have always been so proud of all you guys. thank you.

I have seen a lot of different units listed on this site but not mine! I served from Oct. 68 to Oct. 69 as a radio teletype operator with A Co., Radio Platoon, 501st Signal Bn. My platoon had teletype rigs and men at most of the fire bases and LZs. Anyone remember FSB Rondezvous? I was there and at LZ Sally, Camp Evans, Quang Tri and Tam Ky. Our group really got around. I really enjoyed this site, especially the photos of Eagle Beach. I was lucky enough to spend one day there. My best to all Screaming Eagles, where ever and when ever!!

We were the ones with the white stripe on top of the aircraft and the red ball on the tail. I know we flew many missions in support of you guys. Happy to have worked with the best and glad to have been of help. Best wishes to all who served and returned. Never forget those who gave all.

I am Eugene G. Zrinyi /egz48 @ yahoo.com and I served with the 101st Airborne 3/506 Charlie company in 1968 and 1969. I haven't heard from many people but it would be nice to hear from anybody that served with me. I have dreams and thoughts of our mission over there all the time. And I wonder what happed to all the good people I served with there. I join a Army reserve unit when I got out of Vietnam and had alots of trouble with people in that unit cause I was the only active duty soldier in the unit . So I quit and ten years later I joined the U.S.Air Force which I still serve in today. I have served on three tours of duty over sea'a in the past two years . And I'm tired of all the bull so I will probably retire this year. The military has fallen down hill in the past ten years and getting worse because of all the rules and bull it takes to get promoted in rank. I still wear many of my Army things cause I am pround to say I served with the best. I thinks if people were able to post pictures on line with these messages we
would be able to recognize peoples more by their picture so we can recall there names. God bless you all and I hope to hear from somebody soon . Gene

On June 6, 1968 is was assigned to Battery E 82nd Arty 1st Cav Div and on then reassigned to Battery E 82nd Arty HQ 1st Air Cav Div on July 28, 1968. My main duty station was at Camp Evans for about the first 6 months of my tour and then we moved with the Division to Phouc Yinh where I completed my tour of duty on July 2, 1969. Our Company had OH13s’, LOHs’, Hueys’ and Fixed Wings. Our Company insignia was the Woodpecker. Some had the cigar and others didn’t. Our main mission was to fly support and observation for the 82nd Artillery Company. I remember fling missions into Camp Carroll, Quang Tri, Hue, Phu Bai, Camp Eagle, Tay Ninh, Phu Loi, Bearcat Bien Hoa and Quan Loi. It was a hell of a time. There are a lot of skeletons in my closet that I have been trying to forget for a long time. With 911 and the Iraq war it seems that the skeletons have been rattling more than I can handle. I’m sure you guys can relate. I am sending some pictures, which I made notes to prior to sending them back home in 68’ & 69’. It is like a diary of the times I spent in hell. It was a long time ago and I just recently found these pictures, which put me on my knees. The things that jump out at me the most are the rocket & mortar attacks that were like an everyday occurrence. There are other things that also come to mind but I would rather not get into them.

Do any of you guys that were at Evans and Phouc Vinh remember the Rocket & mortar attacks or was it a figment of my imagination?

My unit was billeted in Camp Hochmuth (off Highway 1) near the Headquarters of XXIV Corps ('Provisional Corps Vietnam' before they changed the name to XXIV Corps). I am hoping someone out there can recall--or help me find records of--any mortar,rocket, or ground attacks that occurred in that vicinity during that time period. My recollections of that year of my life are pretty vague; and I don't trust my memory.

I have filed a claim with the VA for PTSD; but I need more documentation of stressors than my foggy memory can recall. Any help from anybody who was there during that time period would be much appreciated.

506th Vietnam-Era Historical Artifacts Needed

The 4th Brigade Combat Team and the 506th Council at Fort Campbell, KY are looking for 506th historical artifacts that they can display in the 506th regimental areas at Fort Campbell. If you have any 506th-related artifacts/momentos from the 506th in Vietnam that you would be willing to DONATE, contact 1SG(R) John E.

John is the Museum Technician at the Don F. Pratt Memorial Museum at Fort Campbell, and notes, “the government has a policy against loans . . . stories and pictures are even more valuable in many cases than the artifacts. Often
times many of the most mundane items such as belts, pants, socks, etc. that date from that time are very valuable to the museum for making accurate displays to portray how the soldiers lived and survived.”

Hello,

My name is Kristin and for the last 2 years I have been looking into my family history. One person that really stood out was my Great Uncle SFC Howard Earl Button. He PROUDLY served in the Army for 16 years, but I am not sure if it was all with the 101st. He served for his country, God, and his family. He was 33 years old when he returned to Vietnam for his second tour. He arrived in South Vietnam on Dec. 12, 1967 (second tour) and was listed MIA shortly after. On Jan. 31,1968 the family received the news that he was KIA. He was with the 2/506th A company in the Phuoc Long province. His MOS was 11B4P, light weapons Infantry.

I am looking for anyone who served with him or any information on the Batallion during his second tour or his first tour. God Bless you all and Thank You for your time.

Sincerely,

Kristin

I was with Delta Co 2nd/501st 101st Airborne, then they assigned me to HQ Co as a front line supply person. I served proudly from Nov. 68 to Nov 69. In April, 1969, I was on a Huey that crashed in the artillery battery. I tried to help get the pilot out when one of the blades hit one of the 155mm's. The pilot got out, but I was trapped under it. They medivaced me to LZ Sally. I was just wondering if anyone had any photos of what was left of the chopper. I was told that it blew up in all directions. I believe this firebase was across the A Shau Valley from FB Eagles Nest. Just wondering if anyone has a recollection or maybe some old photos of what was left of the chopper. I understand the firebase was overrun by NVA a day or 2 after I was medivaced. Any info from anyone would really help. I have been diagnosed with PTSD, so I would rather not have any gorry details. Thanks and God Bless those of you who lifted the chopper off me and got me out in time.

In these times.... and at the age I am now... I can't help but be overcome with issues that I had believed were long settled or at least diluted by time. But it is almost like discovering I am in the shower with my shoes on. I accidently
came across this page while surfing the web. I just sat here staring at the Screaming Eagle and a flood of emotions poured over me. I grew up in the Washington DC area during those times that now, our grandchildren are learning about in history class-- but were current events for us. No, they weren't movies or books... but events and life changing times that have left their marks on so many souls. I grew up with 13 guys and four of us girls. The last of the original Peanut Characters. Walking at night safe and flirty... dancing to Motown, making out at the drive-ins, and just the beginnings of "something is not right with the grownups" had started. Vietnam wasn't anything the parents shared with "us kids". Then one morning (it seemed like ov! ernight)-- THE DRAFT took our boys. All but Stevie. And Stevie died (OD) after the other 12 left. He was our first casualty of war. The 101 took them all. And
us girls cried. We wrote and sent packages and prayed for an end to the insanity. They all came home. Grown and changed and missing parts of their souls. To this day, our guys are breathing and functioning and still carrying their own internal holes in their souls BUT they went...and they fought... and they are to be honored for all they did! I remain proud of them and will forever be grateful for their sacrific for freedom. The freedom to speak up, to vote, to
make choices, to stand on opinion, to salute our Flag with true meaning, to be a part of a forever brotherhood of their concrete knowings of the cost each one paid; and for their personal respect they give each other. I hate war but I love our soldiers... then and now. God Bless you all and your families. When I see the Screaming Eagle I still see each face and! feel such humbleness, such respect. Thank you, thank you... for goin

Subject : A Company Casualty Stats

Yo Bros - Just received my copy of The Screaming Eagle 3rd Quarter 2004 and I noted casualty stats for all units within the 101st in Nam. Located on page 31 the 2/501 had a total of 316 KIA's. Alpha company's total being 108 from 67-72. It appears that only 3 other rifle companies in the entire 101st had a higher KIA rate and all 3 of those were part of the 1st Brigade which deployed to Nam in 65. Using a factor of at least 4-1 wounded rate, our company casualty rate for the entire 4+ years tour probably exceeds 250+%. Fred Brander (original 1SG) has researched the company and identified about 55 KIA's the first year in 68. That first year the casualty rate was probably in excess of 150+%. It's no wonder that we picked up the nickname of "Hard Luck Alpha". Just some more data for our company history.

The Sheepdogs

Most humans truly are like sheep
Wanting nothing more than peace to keep
To graze, grow fat and raise their young,
Sweet taste of clover on the tongue.
Their lives serene upon Life’s farm,
They sense no threat nor fear no harm.
On verdant meadows, they forage free
With naught to fear, with naught to flee.
They pay their sheepdogs little heed
For there is no threat; there is no need.

To the flock, sheepdog’s are mysteries,
Roaming watchful round the peripheries.
These fang-toothed creatures bark, they roar
With the fetid reek of the carnivore,
Too like the wolf of legends told,
To be amongst our docile fold.
Who needs sheepdogs? What good are they?
They have no use, not in this day.
Lock them away, out of our sight
We have no need of their fierce might.

But sudden in their midst a beast
Has come to kill, has come to feast
The wolves attack; they give no warning
Upon that calm September morning
They slash and kill with frenzied glee
Their passive helpless enemy
Who had no clue the wolves were there
Far roaming from their Eastern lair.
Then from the carnage, from the rout,
Comes the cry, “Turn the sheepdogs out!”

Thus is our nature but too our plight
To keep our dogs on leashes tight
And live a life of illusive bliss
Hearing not the beast, his growl, his hiss.
Until he has us by the throat,
We pay no heed; we take no note.
Not until he strikes us at our core
Will we unleash the Dogs of War
Only having felt the wolf pack’s wrath
Do we loose the sheepdogs on its path.

And the wolves will learn what we’ve shown before;
We love our sheep, we Dogs of War.

My dad is a vietnam vet but doen't say much, its like pulling teeth to get anything out of him. His name is William L. Blackford and he served from Jan 68 to Feb 69. All I know is he was in the 101st 326 Medical Batallion. He did bt at Ft. Leonard Wood, AIT at Sam Houstan and Jump School at Fort Benning. One of the only quotes we get from him, when we ask about Vietnam is "I was from saigon to the DMZ." It makes me sad that he cant talk about it and I am very proud of him for serving his country and would love to hear from someone who know him, and hope it may help him talk about his experiences. Dont know what else to say except I have a deep gratituded for all that serve this country especially the vietnam vets.

We all know Memorial Day is more than barbeque and pool openings. It is a time to remember. In 2001 I wrote a column for the Atlanta Journal Constitution for Memorial Day, here it is below. I can't take much credit, the insights came from Joe Galloway. But maybe it's worth another read as Memorial Day approaches. 

SUCH GOOD MEN 

I recall TV reports of fellow soldiers arriving at an airport, survivors of the Vietnam gauntlet, relieved at their 1st step on home ground. Their grins morphed to astonishment as protesters threw packets of animal blood at them, shouting "Baby-Killers!" Welcome home. Joseph Galloway, senior writer for US News & World Report, would differ with the protestors. Unlike more sensible journalists reporting on the war from relative comfort and safety, Joe preferred working close up, hot, tired, hungry, scared, dirty and bloodied along with the men he wrote about. Joe conned his way into hot spots like the 1965 battle of the Ia Drang Valley, aka The Valley of Death, where 450 of our men were surrounded by 2,000 well-armed NVA enemy.  Over 4 days 234 young Americans died as each side chopped the other to pieces. In that battle Joe set camera aside to charge with a Medic through enemy fire in a desperate attempt to help an injured soldier. The Medic was killed, the soldier later died, and Joe Galloway was awarded the Bronze Star with V (valor), the 1st civilian ever to be decorated for valor in combat by the US Army. 

Consider some of his remarks at the Vietnam Helicopter Pilots Association banquet in Washington DC, July 2000. 

"What I want to say now is just between us, because America still doesn't get it, still doesn't know the truth, and the truth is - you are the cream of the crop of our generation, the best and finest of an entire generation of Americans." 

"You are the ones who answered when you were called to serve. You are the ones who fought bravely and endured a terrible war in a terrible place. You are the ones for whom the words duty, honor, country have real meaning because you have lived those words and the meaning behind those words. You are my brothers in arms, and I am not ashamed to say that I love you. I would not trade one of you for a whole trainload of instant Canadians, or a whole boatload of Rhodes Scholars bound for England, or a whole campus full of guys who turned up for their draft physicals wearing panty hose." 

"On behalf of a country that too easily forgets the true cost of war, and who pays that price, I say thank you for your service. On behalf of the people of our country who didn't have good sense enough to separate the war they hated from the young warriors they sent to fight that war, I say we are sorry. We owe you all a very large apology, and a debt of gratitude that we can never adequately repay." Joe talked about his friend Mike Norman, a Marine who searched out the survivors of his platoon and wrote a fine book, These Good Men. Mike explained why we veterans sometimes gather. "I now know why men who have been to war yearn to reunite. Not to tell stories or look at old pictures. Not to laugh or weep. Comrades gather because they long to be with the men who once acted their best, men who suffered and sacrificed, who were stripped raw, right down to their humanity." "I did not pick these men. They were delivered by fate and the military. But I know them in a way I know no other men. I have never given anyone such trust. They were willing to guard something more precious than my life." 

"They would have carried my reputation, the memory of me. It was part of the bargain we all made, the reason we were so willing to die for one another." "I am sure that when I leave this world my last thought will be of my family and my comrades, such good men." In closing Joe said "I salute you. I remember you. I will teach my sons the stories and legends about you . . ." The media forgets that Washington botched the war, but continually portray veterans as fragile, crazed or trigger-happy. Its about time America learned what Joe Galloway knows, that we are normal, patriotic citizens, proud of having served with honor and courage. 

Here's to the memory of every one of our brothers who paid the ultimate price - for his country, for those who sent him to that miserable war while they enjoyed the comforts of home, for those who dodged, even for those who insulted our service. We remember each one, such good men.

I was with a/2/501 during 1970 in Sgt. Nichol's Platoon. I was on re-up hill, Granite, Henderson (wounded) and the operations around Ripcord in July (wounded again and sent home). I am particularly interested in hearing from anyone who was on re-up hill in later April when the hill got it's name. I remember someone writing 're-up hill' on a piece of cardboard and sticking it to a tree just before we moved out after having been hit on that hill for two nights in a row. I have never seen an accurate description of the events surrounding that anywhere on the web or anywhere else and would like to compare memories with anyone else who was actually there. In particular, I would like to know people's estimates (or knowledge) of how many troopers actually re-enlisted and were extracted on or about 23 April.

I am looking for anyone who served with my father William "Bill" Shepherd. He was also went by "Shep". He was with Travis Air Force Base in California. I am not sure of the details but believe he served 1 to 2 years and returned in 1969. I am his daughter. I have found some more information on my father William "Bill" Shepherd with Travis Air Force Base after I posted a message yesterday. I found papers that mentioned Phu Cat AB Run and Special Forces Camp at Ben Het. I know he was there on June 25, 1969 because I found a award that he received for this date for an emergency resupply mission. I apologize for not knowing the specifics but I am becoming very interested in learning more about him when he was in Vietnam. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi everyone! I was in Nam from March 70 until Sep 71. 1st Cav.222nd Brigade 184th Aviation Co. The unit was stationed in Phu Loi, but this is the problem, the 1st platoon was TDY in Duc Hoa. I was in the 1st platoon. Cpt. Ralph Hiatt or Hyatt was our platoon leader. The military can't seem to locate any records of our platoon being TDY in Duc Hoa! I know this can't be my imagination! I can only remember a few days in Phu Loi, the rest was in Duc Hoa, a small village just east of the Cambodian border. We flew the 0-1 Birddogs. A spotter plane
used to locate and take out gun nest during any ground contacts, also for radio relay when no action was taking place. There was an ARVIN compound just across the street from our compound and that's where the runway was. The Airforce had a unit of 0-1 Birddogs at the same place. I remember they were training ARVINS to fly. That would suck, they could'nt even drive! Anyone know of this place or Cpt. Ralph Hiatt, please get in touch! My ad! dress is: bodie_67@hotmail.com Thanks a bunch!!

Sgt Joseph T. Pigeon Jr, Warwick R.I. was KIA 21 Aug 68. Joe and I went to HS together and a couple of years of college in Wisconsin before he dropped out and joined the Army. At the time we buried him, there was no talk of how he was killed... it was an open casket and my carrot-topped buddy looked about as I remembered him the last time we saw each other... he was a great guy.

The years have passed, I did my tour with the USAF Security Police as an enlisted guy (Bien Hoa, 70-71), got out, joined the reserve and stayed. I have often wondered how Joe met his maker and would appreciate it if any of your group who served with him could provide the circumstances. My guess is his mom and dad are long dead (they were older parents by today's definition, when I met them) and his sister Elaine has fallen off the planet, having had a custody dispute with her ex.....

In these times.... and at the age I am now... I can't help but be overcome with
issues that I had believed were long settled or at least diluted by time. But it
is almost like discovering I am in the shower with my shoes on. I accidently
came across this page while surfing the web. I just sat here staring at the
Screaming Eagle and a flood of emotions poured over me. I grew up in the
Washington DC area during those times that now, our grandchildren are learning
about in history class-- but were current events for us. No, they weren't movies
or books... but events and life changing times that have left their marks on so
many souls. I grew up with 13 guys and four of us girls. The last of the
original Peanut Characters. Walking at night safe and flirty... dancing to
Motown, making out at the drive-ins, and just the beginnings of "something is
not right with the grownups" had started. Vietnam wasn't anything the parents
shared with "us kids". Then one morning (it seemed like ov!
ernight)-- THE DRAFT took our boys. All but Stevie. And Stevie died (OD) after
the other 12 left. He was our first casualty of war. The 101 took them all. And
us girls cried. We wrote and sent packages and prayed for an end to the
insanity. They all came home. Grown and changed and missing parts of their
souls. To this day, our guys are breathing and functioning and still carrying
their own internal holes in their souls BUT they went...and they fought... and
they are to be honored for all they did! I remain proud of them and will forever
be grateful for their sacrific for freedom. The freedom to speak up, to vote, to
make choices, to stand on opinion, to salute our Flag with true meaning, to be a
part of a forever brotherhood of their concrete knowings of the cost each one
paid; and for their personal respect they give each other. I hate war but I love
our soldiers... then and now. God Bless you all and your families. When I see
the Screaming Eagle I still see each face and!
feel such humbleness, such respect. Thank you, thank you... for goin

My dad is a vietnam vet but doen't say much, its like pulling teeth to get anything out of him. His name is William L. Blackford and he served from Jan 68 to Feb 69. All I know is he was in the 101st 326 Medical Batallion. He did bt at Ft. Leonard Wood, AIT at Sam Houstan and Jump School at Fort Benning. One of the only quotes we get from him, when we ask about Vietnam is "I was from saigon to the DMZ." It makes me sad that he cant talk about it and I am very proud of him for serving his country and would love to hear from someone who know him, and hope it may help him talk about his experiences. Dont know what else to say except I have a deep gratituded for all that serve this country especially the vietnam vets.

I am looking for anyone who served with my father William "Bill" Shepherd. He was also went by "Shep". He was with Travis Air Force Base in California. I am not sure of the details but believe he served 1 to 2 years and returned in 1969. I am his daughter.

I have found some more information on my father William "Bill" Shepherd with Travis Air Force Base after I posted a message yesterday. I found papers that mentioned Phu Cat AB Run and Special Forces Camp at Ben Het. I know he was there on June 25, 1969 because I found a award that he received for this date for an emergency resupply mission. I apologize for not knowing the specifics but I am becoming very interested in learning more about him when he was in Vietnam. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi everyone! I was in Nam from March 70 until Sep 71. 1st Cav.222nd Brigade 184th Aviation Co. The unit was stationed in Phu Loi, but this is the problem, the 1st platoon was TDY in Duc Hoa. I was in the 1st platoon. Cpt. Ralph Hiatt or Hyatt was our platoon leader. The military can't seem to locate any records of our platoon being TDY in Duc Hoa! I know this can't be my imagination! I can only remember a few days in Phu Loi, the rest was in Duc Hoa, a small village just east of the Cambodian border. We flew the 0-1 Birddogs. A spotter plane used to locate and take out gun nest during any ground contacts, also for radio relay when no action was taking place. There was an ARVIN compound just across the street from our compound and that's where the runway was. The Airforce had a unit of 0-1 Birddogs at the same place. I remember they were training ARVINS to fly. That would suck, they could'nt even drive! Anyone know of this place or Cpt. Ralph Hiatt, please get in touch! My ad! dress is: bodie_67@hotmail.com Thanks a bunch!!

Sgt Joseph T. Pigeon Jr, Warwick R.I. was KIA 21 Aug 68. Joe and I went to HS together and a couple of years of college in Wisconsin before he dropped out and joined the Army. At the time we buried him, there was no talk of how he was killed... it was an open casket and my carrot-topped buddy looked about as I remembered him the last time we saw each other... he was a great guy.

The years have passed, I did my tour with the USAF Security Police as an enlisted guy (Bien Hoa, 70-71), got out, joined the reserve and stayed. I have often wondered how Joe met his maker and would appreciate it if any of your group who served with him could provide the circumstances. My guess is his mom and dad are long dead (they were older parents by today's definition, when I met them) and his sister Elaine has fallen off the planet, having had a custody dispute with her ex..... If you have sources, I'd be happy to hear from them.
