I would like to thank all those responsible for this fine tribute to all our fallen comrades of the Screaming Eagles that served in Vietnam.

Although I wasn't a member of the 101st, 327th, I was stationed at Fort Campbell back in 1957-59 duty with the 601st Aerial Supply Company before leaving for new assignment to the 549th Aerial Supply Company in Japan from 1960-64, then on to the 5th Special Forces Group S-4 in Nha Trang South Vietnam as the operations NCOIC from 1964-65, and again in 67-68.

I lost a very close friend who was more like a big brother to me during my early military career. His name was Daryle Wayne Batt who served with A Company 1-327th in Thua Thien in 1969, and was killed in action. Daryle Batt left behind his wife and four children who live in Washington State.

I left a remembrance on the Virtual Wall web page and have received a email from one of his buddies who survived the fire fight, telling me that Daryle's aggressive action when trying to brake through the Ambush saved two of his buddies lives. Well knowing Daryle like I did, he would do something like that to protect his men. For no-one could do anything more bravely and unselfishly for his men then to sacrifice his life for them, that is the real meaning of leadership!!!

God Bless men like Daryle Wayne Batt, and all those fine young men who paid the supreme sacrifice for their
Country and their fellow man, and God Bless all the present men serving with the Screaming Eagles in the defense of our Country!

This message is to whom ever may have served or knew my older brother SSG Ray Adam Archuletta KIA 7 Sept 1967. We were not given much detail as to how Ray's last few days with the 101st Airborne brothers. My father was extremly proud of his eldest son as he was the other three. My mother was never the same after his death. Iam sure that if Ray was was able to put Sadam's Insane name on a round he would be happy to do so. All of our family are as proud of Ray and his special brothers he lived with his last few days as my father. If there is any one that would be willing to corrispond with me about Ray I would be happy to do so. I noticed that Dale Hansen submitted his name to the Virtual Wall for posting. Thanks again in advance.

As a platoon leader in Abu on of my most prized possessions is a sand bag Flag signed by the members of the platoon. It is framed and hangs promently in my home. Our Call sign at the time was Caviler. I was privileged to command the 'Tiger Force' for a period of time in 1968. The Battalion Commander at the time was LTC Eilliot 'Bud' Sydnor.

I am a college student in a Vietnam course. My father was in Vietnam from 6/66 - 7/67. He was B co. 1st Bn 327inf, 1st bat, 101st Airborne. It is very hard for me to talk to him about what happened over there. He was going in for another tour but, thankfully, his injuries during the first year did not let that happen. If anyone can give me a brief history on my fathers division, I would really appreciate it. It is hard to find this information. Thank you.

Over the last 18 months the soldiers of NO SLACK have constantly pushed the envelope in training to make sure their next 'Rendezvous With Destiny'; will be as successful as yours was. Every new guy in the Battalion knows your history and will never allow the unit to fail or dishonor your memory. We are proud to be walking in the tremendous footsteps of you that have gone before us and set the example.

Take care of yourselves as we finally put to rest the evil in this world.

I'm doing research on an incident evolving, C Company, 1st Battalion, 327 Inf, 101st Airborne. Pfc. Alan Bonney was one of the Kia's. The incident was on 5/25/67. It was an action in Quang Ngai province around the area of Duc Pho. A platoon of C Company fought to the top of a nameless hill and was ambushed. Most were killed and those that were alive after, the NVA assassinated. There was a Scout Dog with them by the name of Thunder. He was killed also. When the Kia's were airlifted out off the mountain, they airlifted the Dog out also, to the surprise of the people in the rear receiving the bodies. The commander thought it fitting, as Thunder had a piece of an NVA in his mouth when he was killed. I am trying to identify the dog handler. If you remember this action please contact me.
