jbbor, I sure did. we got to go to Ha Tien for our r&r patrols about every 2 months. they let us stay for about 3-4 days then it was back down south. I was on the 94 boat when we brought Sea Float in the Cau Lon river. I guess they changed the name after I left. Nam Can city was just rubble when I was there(68-69). We started running rivers down there. Our home base was An Thoi on Phu Quac(sp) island. Good to hear from you. my e-mail is bogey67401@yahoo.com

Hey trapper03, I spent time in Tuy Hoa, and Vung Rho Bay with the 577th Engineer Battalion. Trying to maintain QL-1, and it's bridges was some interesting duty. Do you, or anybody else, remember the "truck/car washes"? Sure admired the nurses working out of the 91st Evac hospital.

Spent 13 months at Korat AFB Thailand with 551st Recon Wing as an Aircraft Electrical Repairman, working on C-121 Constallations. Went TDY to U-Tapaio to get my discharge physical and can remember setting on my duffle bag on the flight line early one morning watching the B-52's and KC-135's taking off one right after another. Just made the ground shake. Awsome sight. Was at Korat Nov. 1968 to Nov. 1969.

As did I. Flew as a gunner in 68-69 with the 187th AHC out of Tay Ninh - following a period of time as an ordnance repairman in Long Binh and Bear Cat. Then went to the 120th Avn. at Long Binh until returning to the states in '70.

Just a note about March 17. There is going to be a large number of Viet Nam Vets at the wall on the 17th. The protesters had better be afraid of them. If it comes to it there will be a real get-go. We have a large group from the Swifties going for sure. Rolling Thunder guys will be there also. Any and all are welcome to join in. Bogey

U.S.N. 63-67 Almost made it to Vietnam. Almost is like close and close is like horse shoes, handginades and atom bombs. You only have to be close. Stationed in Key West Fla. 64-65 and then was shipped abord the U.S.S Turner DDR-834 Raidar Picket Ship out of Mayport, Fla. 65-67. Thank you to those that did go to Vietnam and made it back. Remember the MIA's always!! I don't agree with how we got into this mess in Iraq but I do holy and undevidedly support out troups there now. Let's get it done and get out of there!! We needed to have finished what we started in Afganistan first then took thought about the facts for Iraq. But any way. Thanks goes to our People who are serving and have served there. May GOD walk with you each and every day!!! Rich (inPeoria,Az.)

Wow Bill, you have quite a bit of military history, especially with your father being one of the Rangers to scale up the cliffs of Pointe Du Hoc, those guys had it rough... One of the older gentlemen that likes to hang out at the club was a sniper in the marines in Vietnam. He came out of it with 2 purple hearts and a silver star, he never says much about it either, I've just heard stories he's told from other guys. I think anyone who has served in our armed forces deserves to be thanked for their service to our country, while I'm at it: Thank You.

Volunteered to go in 1967, my brother was already there as a F4 Guidance System Tech and bomb loader at the peak. Air Force policy didn't allow us both to be there so I never made it. He made it back home in good health. It was so sad to see on the news how our men were treated when they came home. I was stationed in Tampa Fl in Jan 71 and never saw a Viet Nam Vet treated with anything but the utmost respect which they richly deserved. I read the article above about the young man in Iraq and welled up with pride and moist eyes. Freedom is not free. Thank you Men for keeping America free. Sgt. Jackie Bennett, USAF RET, 1966-1989

awesome thread! my best friend, the man who taught me to shoot, was there from '67 to '68. i'm only 34 but i've heard him mention black virgin mtn. and op. junction city. he was 1st infantry. he doesn't tell stories about it though. once in a while he'll talk about camp life or something funny that happened in camp. never any combat stories though. me and his son are really close and graduated high school together. he's the only reason i found out his dad was awarded a silver star while in nam, and i've known the guy my whole life! thank you to all vets, i salute you.

I applied for permission to bring my shotgun into the US recently, to compete ,and I had to fill in a ATF form which was titled "Foreign Alliens". After working with you guys in SVN that title bothered me a tad so I dumped the idea.

As the man said "Ă„merica at war is a sight to be seen". If the boys in Iraq are as good as what we were then pity help the towelheads.

Some people I don't understand Why are they cruel when I offer a hand They say I'm wrong to offer my life To keep our freedom, our way of life

They say I'm crazy and a stupid fool To offer my life for people like you But you like so many are dear to me So why can't these people let me be.

I'm not afraid to die if need be If my dying means keeping you free But don't misunderstand and think me a fool I value my life but more I value you.

My main characters are a labrador tracker named Joey and his 1st ID handler. I would love to include something about Major in my article. What crap it was that the dogs were left behind or put to sleep. I had a couple of gook dogs I wanted to bring home, but they would have died of old age in quarenteen in Hawaii. Are you going to the VN Dog Handlers Assoc. in Milwaukee this June? I'm planning on being there.

Made me grow up awfully fast. Owe my life to a dog named Major who got me thru it all. When they say Man's best friend, he definately was mine. Before Nam, I spent time in Fort Dix, Fort Polk, and Fort Benning. Lots of memories and lots of great friends. A big salute to the many who lost their lives there and all the others who had to take their chances then come home to all the anti war crap. Now I salute the people serving us in Iraq and Afghanistan. If people only new some of the things these poor people are going thru to make them a little safer.

He who does not swell with pride at the sight of an American Serviceman (or woman)in uniform or who is not humbled by their deeds,commitments and acts of selflessness is not an American!

Those who are not in awe of the power and intent of an American war machine uncloaked have not learned life's lessons.

I want to thank all of you that served and those that continue to serve for the freedoms that my family and I enjoy. I do know that without the sacrifices you have made our entire way of life would not be filled with the rights and privileges we have.

577th Engineer Battalion Tuy Hoa all of '68, and part of '69. Top Sergent wanted me to extend three(3)months, and then be released. Headquarters told me, that the Unit was "moving" Southwest. I rotated to best 6 months of my life, the HHC 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, NC. Myrtle Beach every weekend. I loved it.

First Cav, class of 1965/1966. Jump school, went with division by ship to Nam.

I remember it also as, what are you going to do to me? "Shave my head bald and send me to Nam?" "It don't mean a thing!"

Enlisted, not drafted, in Infantry in 1966 and discharged in 1969. Went through basic at Ft. Benning with Ranger cadre, which was the most difficult thing I ever did in my life. Became a drill sergeant at Ft. Knox. Knox basic was much easier than Benning.

I was not deployed to Viet Nam. Why, I don't know. Became transportation officer in 1967 and worked training Viet Nam Air Force types in logistics at Ft. Eustis, VA in 1968-1969. Was asked to re-enlist and offered promotion if I would serve a tour in Viet Nam in 1969. By then, I had come to my senses and left the Army.

Served three years in a reserve unit, 1969 - 1972, to help pay for college. Served as a company commander and a public information officer.

I used to feel that I was cheated and should have been deployed to Viet Nam. That was my original (and foolish) goal. I now believe that God was watching over me. I lost many friends in that war.

Today, I would caution against going to war too fast, without a good strategy or an exit plan. I am not saying don't go to war but wars are much easier to start than to finish. Remember the men and women on the ground, and their families, who are paying a heavy price.
