Hello. My father, Troy Allen Frodge, was in Vietnam from 1970-1971 with 101st-2/327 No Slack (not sure what company). He was one of the cooks there and he has problems with remembering much from that time, he does remember delivering pizza's to some of you while under attack and a few other stories that he has shared with us. Lately, he's been trying to remember more information to where he was located in Vietnam and for this Christmas I would like to be able to tell him. If anyone remembers him or know where I can find some information please contat me at JeninaF@msn.com.

Thank you and
Have a Wonderful Christmas!!!

Great work on the web site. Very well done!

It was truly inspirational to watch 327th troopers walk point for the Screaming Eagles in the attack to liberate Najaf in March 2003 and to see the Bastogne Bulldogs do so magnificently throughout the first year of Operation Iraqi Freedom. And it was an honor to soldier with them in the Division that year.

Served in Tiger Force late November 1970 thru Feb/Mar 1971. Transferred to newly formed "Sky Hawks". Overall memory is vague, however some memories are as vivid as yesterday. Remember the night 12/24/70 I was RTO in bush when "friendly" fire hit unit in bush. Multiple deaths. Next day our Christmas dinner arrived by chopper in body bags. Remember "Blue"; Sgt. Clancy/Yancy? Bear; Doc Watson? Remember Bob Hope Christmas show @ Camp Eagle. Remember first mission walking off Bastogne. Remember losing resupply by being kicked from chopper and landing in river. Remember mission extended with no food. Remember fishing with hand grenades and eating fish, unpolished rice and catchup! What would booney food be like without catchup, dehydrated onions and green peppers? Remember cooking with C4 to make LRRP rations. Oh the days! How I miss them. I remember drying my socks over a heat tab on a stick while sitting under a pancho liner face to face with a buddy! I remember the rain! I remember the mountains! I remember the rain! Four months and no sun! I remember two typhoons! I remember kit carson scouts! I remember many things! It has been many years, but I remember!

ABU Bro's,
I have contacted Jerry "Injun" Rorvik. He currently lives in Nashua, MT - East of Glasgow. He is alive and well. He remembered the names of a lot of the other ABU's from the time. He was with Alpha thru Jan. 1971 to the end of 1971. He had been in contact with Juan "Chili Pepper" Garza, also. His phone number is 406-367-9352. He doesn't have a computer so no email address at this time.

I went to the first reunion since I got out of Viet Nam in 1969 and it was the best thing I have done in my life. I encourage others to get back with their true, real friends, you will be astonished how it will make you feel!! Thanks to Phil Dow for getting me there. Now we, in Delta company are trying to find others and without some sort of roster from 1968 to 1969 we are having a hard time finding real names not nick names as we remember. Any ideas out there?

Just wanted to say how sorry I was to hear of Frank Norris's passing, we had just been with him and his fianc'e Janie at the Ist Brigade reunion in Phoenix. Frank was an old school paratrooper, who was tough as nails, and to have soldiered with him was an honor. We now know that his trip to Phoenix must have been an ordeal for him, but he wanted to be with his B-company friends one last time. Frank was one of a kind and will be remembered by everyone who humped a ruck or shared a c-rat with him. He was one hell of a soldier to the very end. -- Jim wilson

Looking for anyone who might have known John Hefty. He was with either C Co. 1/327 or B Co. 2/327 and was KIA on March 28, 1968. He and I were buddies all through high school, then went to Nam and were with separate divisions. We wrote back and forth a lot, then I got wounded in April 68 in the A Shau and got home and learned that John was KIA. I'm trying to find out the circumstances of his death. Thanks for your help.

Your website is quite interesting - providing me a perspective on Vietnam that is different from my experience as a Marine infantry squad leader with Kilo 3/1 during 1967.

I have a question - could you please explain how many troops were in the 327th at full capacity? Furthermore how many troops are in an Army battalion or brigade at full strength? Lastly, what size is a full strength company?

In the Marine Corps during Vietnam we were usually understrength. Replacements for killed and seriously wounded were always behind the need. The assignment, however, never changed - being under strength just made the mission more difficult for those who survived ....

I appreciate an answer to my request regarding the size of units in the 327th. Thanks in advance.

Hello:

I really enjoy your web site and it has given me some insight as to my uncles fallen brothers and current ones.. I managed to contact some of his former brothers but the emails got lost. I'm looking for info on anyone who served with A Co., 3rd Platoon, 2/327th Inf. from Dec 14 1967 - Feb 5 1968. My uncle's name was Gerald Pelzman 1LT. and he served with your unit until his death on February 5, 1968, in Gia Dinh. If you have any info or pictures and would like to share, it would mean a lot to me. Please feel free to drop me a line anytime. I would also like to see if anyone who has served with LT. Gerald Pelzmann "little beaver" will be at the upcomming event in Arizona in Sept 04'. Thanks for the great work.

Take care,
Gerald Green

Welcome home to all. I'm looking to make contact to those guys that were in "D" Company 2/327th in 1970. I humped the radio and look forward to hearing from others in Nam during that time. I read this site pretty frequently hoping to see some names I remember. Most of the time I don't remember the names, but I sure do remember all the faces. Hopefully someday I'll see some of you at a reunion. Bye for now. Write.

I am a veteran governor of the 327th Infantry Regiment in the 101st Airborne Division Association. At the last reunion in Hampton Va., a proposal was made that the association make a gesture to the active division to both support them in this critical time and to honor their great service to our country. Part of that proposal is to seek donations from the veterans of the 327th regiment of $5 to $10 each for the purpose of purchasing pavers engraved with the names of those 327th troopers who died in Iraq, those pavers to be laid at the 101st monument at Ft Campbell. These pavers are $101 each. Any surplus from this project is to be donated to the Support Fund for junior enlisted personnel of the active division at Ft Campbell. As Vietnam veterans, I'm sure we appreciate and honor the valor and sacrifice made by the division in this war and the service that they might yet have to provide in the near future.

I am a songwriter in Dallas, Texas. I'm looking for information about a man named Danny Nye (Daniel Eugene Nye). It's a long, long story but I thought I had "made up" a fictitious name and story as the basis of a song. Turns out, I think that through coincidence or fate (or something more bizarre)I "made up" a real person and what really happened to him. Weird, I know. But can anyone help?
Sincerely,

I recently played golf and met a member of the 327th. I was with the 326th Eng as an RTO. From Feb-May 69, I was at several firebases as the RTO for the Engrs building them and in charge of the LZs to bring in equip, etc. I spent my last 6 months in country at Camp Eagle. It's always good to meet anyone in the 101st. I was a leg that came to the Division in Nov. 68, but there's no one more proud of what the Div did in VietNam, and still does today. Later Lads......

Thank you to all the Vets! You have done us proud serving your Country! It is so important for Americans to support our Vets of yesterday, today and tomorrow!
I have started a small grassroots effort with a big heart called Patriotic Fridays. I want everyone to support our troops and to promote patriotism in America by participating in Patriotic Fridays. The letter below was written by me and is posted on my web site. It has been sent to the Air Force Times, several Ca newspapers, to friends on the internet, celebrities and to politicians. It is being promoted by the Dr I work for and participated in by us and patients. It has grown from the Chiropractor's office where I work and beyond the neighborhoods of our patients to Americans across the Country. I hope you will join us in Patriotic Fridays. God bless you for all your support and prayers for our Vets.

Remember post 9/11 Patriotism?
We waved flags, dressed in red, white and blue, adorned our clothes with flag pins, placed flag stickers on our cars and posters in our windows. We pledged not to forget and to stand united!

As time goes by, we are seeing tattered flags, faded posters, peeling stickers and a lack of red, white and blue in our lives.

IT IS TIME AGAIN TO STAND UNITED AS AMERICANS!

It's not about being Democrat or Republican or Independent, it's not about race, religion or how you feel about the war in Iraq. It's not even about high gas prices or the economy. It is about our FREEDOM as Americans!

Let's make every Friday, PATRIOTIC FRIDAY! Wear your red, white and blue proudly. Get out your flag shirts, scarves, ties, hats, pins and let everyone know that you are PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN and that WE STILL STAND UNITED!

Pass this on! Talk about it! Do It! Let a great thing begin with you.

GOD BLESS AMERICA

IF WE REALLY CARE, WE WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN
by Jos? G. Ramos

On May 15, 2004, I left Whittier, CA. on what was to be the most emotional and mental "roller coaster" bicycle ride of my life. I fully recall the feelings I had as I rode my bicycle down the roads of Vietnam back in 1998 and they will always be unforgettable memories. However, this ride across America, where I had the opportunity to visit every major Veteran's medical center in every state we rode across, was truly a life long experience. I don't know if anyone has ever done this but I had the chance to visit with hundreds of Veterans in every hospital we visited. We spoke to them in Vet-Centers, clinics, groups, waiting rooms, wards, waiting for prescriptions, etc. But they were there, each one a warrior, each one a Veteran. It was so great. They wanted to hear about the Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day project we were on, they wanted to see our bikes, wear the helmets and so on. But most of all, every single Veteran I met, regardless of what era they served in, all agreed it was about time to fix that old wrong. It is time to Welcome Home our Vietnam Veterans. When we arrived in DC we worked out of Congresswomen Grace Napolitano's and Linda T. Sanchez's office along with their wonderful staff members for two days. We made appointments, we did walk-in's to other Congressional Offices, we phoned, we stopped Congressional folks in the hallways, elevators, cafeterias, etc. We talked and worked for two days in the Halls of Congress and we raised a lot of awareness as to what needed to be done with the Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day Bill {H. Res # 485} and about our faulty VA Medical system. We also asked all we spoke with to support Bill H.R. 2318 the mandatory funding bill for our VA Medical Facilities. This insures that our warriors who are out there now will have a VA system that will be here for them when THEY NEED it. This is not only about Vietnam Veterans this about our men and women who are out there NOW, TODAY. I am including all the information I could gather to share with ya'll cause now it is up to us, the regular, everyday Americans to back up our talk that we "love our Veterans." Now is the time to show that love and appreciation. Let's get our politicians to do the right thing. It is time to make it happen. All it takes from us is the honest desire to see an old wrong corrected and to really have it in our hearts that we need to thank and Welcome Home the new Veterans as well as the Veterans of the Vietnam War who did a tremendous and honorable job during their time of service. It's in Congress now, all we have to do today is push the Bills, and push our local Reps to support them. If you go to this site on the net [http://mygov.governmentguide.com/mygov/issues/bills/?billtype=H.R.&billnumb;=2318&congress;=108} you can actually se the wording on the bills and who the sponsors are.
I hope this information makes it easier for all of you to make this very important phone call and understand what you are calling about.
God bless you my friends and it is really important that you and all you know who care about Veterans call their local Congressional Representative and ask them to support Bill H.RES. # 485 "Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that a "Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day" should be established."
Also, Bill # H.R.2318 "To amend title 38, United States Code, to provide for assured adequate level of funding for veterans health care."
My team and I have done what we can to raise awareness. It is up to us and the rest of America to make this change happen.
Share this with everyone so they can call their congressional leader anywhere in the States. PLEASE MAKE THE CALL AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
Thanking you again in advance for your efforts, love and support of our Veterans.

Gentlemen,

I am the company executive officer for D Co. 1-327. Mike Moreno and Andy Roy stopped by and spoke to the company today. They announced that our alumni were going to present the company with an American flag that flew over FIRE BASE TOMAHANK. This is a wonderful honor for the company. It will be hung in the conference room to remind us of your sacrifice. Thank you for this connection to our past.

After their visit I took some time to view this website. I had heard mention of it before and this visit by Mike and Andy really got my attention. After viewing it I certainly have more knowledge and pride about our great battalion. I also want to thank all you for your service. You have left an ?Above the Rest? legacy that we here uphold everyday.

In Operation Iraqi Freedom I served as platoon leader for 2nd PLT, Co. C, 1-327 and 1st PLT, Co. D, 1-327. Upon our return soldiers were talking about a reunion for Cold Steele and how much they enjoyed speaking with the vet?s. So, I plan on joining the reunion this weekend and meeting you all. I also would love to get my hands on one of those Cold Steele Cobra T-Shirts.

Finally, if any of you would like to tour the company area please feel free to stop by, you are always welcome.

Sincerely,


Corey McCoy

Thanks for sharing this site with me and serving our great country. I did not have a chance to do that. I have two son's that also signed up. My older son went through boot camp Fort Sill, kicked out on a medical for a blood clot in his arm. All his buddy's went to Desert Strorm. My younger son signed up for the Coast Guard but was turned down after a year because he admitted to smoking pot in high school. If you can tell me what is wrong with this picture I would greatly appreciate the input. Then again I what to thank you and all your buddy's personally for everything you have done for me, my family and this beautifull country that we live in!

He did not think anyone would remember him! He was WIA in Jan., 1970, by a booby trap and lost some of his heel bone but is able to get around ok. He retired in 1973 and is now 71 years of age. He would love hearing from anyone who remembers him. He does not have a computer but you can reach him at:

I was a RTO Feb 1970 to Nov 1970 and spent nearly that whole time either setting up ambushes around the villages or humping around up in the moutains. I was recently going through some old army orders, a Bronze Star and Combat Infantry Badge, and saw some 35 other guys on those orders along with me. It sparked an interest after almost 35 years to try to reach out to a few. There was only a very few that I could put a face with the name.Most of the time we all used nick names anyways. A few names I recalled and have great respect for were Willy Simmons, Walter Washington, Larry Keese, Timmy O'Connel (?) none as "DOC", 2nd LT Mack, and of course First Sgt. Dearman. There are so many guys that I can picture, in fact I have alot of pictures, but for the life of me I can't put a name with the face. It is really annoying. This web site is great to look through and read, I thought maybe a few may see it and write me back. Thanks for letting me vent and hopefully I will get some responses.

Hi and Abu to all my 327th brothers
I'm looking for a friend, Dan Clint, we were cherries together in Sgt Williams Squad, 2d Platoon/A co/1st 327
I was in Abu company from May 67--Oct 67 when I joined the lrrps, wound up in E Co/20th Inf (LRP) later renamed to C Co/75th Ranger Regiment. You can see pictures of me doing all this at http://www.hackworth.com/photo0022.html
Dan I'd love to talk to you again. You and I learned it all together, shared the same foxholes, humped together, spent the night on various LPs, OPs and every other kind of P, ate out of the same C ration case. I'd love to catch up with you, I always thought you were a helluva fighter, a hard charger even when you were a cherry. You were hard to keep up with for sure.
Remember meeting up in Bragg when you were Derosing and I bought some of your fatigues?
Get ahold of me at jamesgworth@hotmail.com
Good Luck!! Wherever you are I hope its good.
If anybody reading this knows Dan Clint and would get this message to him, I'd be obliged
Abu!!

My Dad(my hero) L. A. Latimer was a sniper in the 101st, I am not sure of the rest. He was in Veitnam from 66-67. There are 4 of the original that came back out of the 200 which was not unheard of. He has had contact with those 4 and I can only recall Boatwright as one of them. I am trying to find more information about his group where he was and more info on snipers within this group. He has told me many stories, but has left out details like places and dates and now recently he is very reluctant to tell me much. I hope with more information I can get him to fill in details around the facts. Please email me if you know info that could help.

I have watched many ceremonys, interviews of veterans and a couple of movies this weekend. I have heard taps so many times. I am now, at 8:20 AM watching the wreath laying ceremony at Arlington. I want to thank all veterans still with us and those not with us. One of the comments I heard that President Roosevelt made was that "there will be memorials for those that fought in WW II", it sure took along time. It is too bad, I think my dad and uncles that were there would have enjoyed it. Maybe he would have told me about his experiances; he never did, even after I returned from RVN. At least I knew he was a Platoon leader and Company Commander and wounded by shrapnel in Belgium. I want to say "THANK YOU" all of the WW II veterans. I also say to the Vietnam veterans "WELCOME HOME".
I hope everyone has a thankful and safe day.God Bless those serving, stay alert, stay safe.
Thank you Yankee Jim, Jim Schimeria and others for providing this site and allow me to use it.

I recently, well a few weeks ago, visited the traveling Vietnam Wall that was in Rural Valley, PA, over May 6-9. It is such a beautiful wall. The V for Victory from WWII and the peace sign from this era, just stood out so much. I am honored that so many men and women fought their hearts out to protect out great country. I cried for hours. I kneeled before each name and said a prayer for all of their souls. They left this country to fight, they were brave people whom will never be forgotten.

This time in history really strikes home in my heart. My grandfather is SSG Frederick Tregaskes or Tiger T, or Tiger 6, he was severely wounded on June 27, 1967. I have interviewed countless people about what happened to him on that day.I have thought about the things that those who lost their lives are missing out on, so for them, and for those who came back, to all of you, thank you. Thank you for serving this great country, thank you for suffering in the miserable Vietnam heat, thank you for trying to make my life better, by protecting what we have.

Memorial Day is a time to remember and a time to not forget. I will never forget, you have my promise on that, because as you say, "NO SLACK!"

Although I am was not a member of the Screaming Eagles, I did spend three years of my life in the Army, during the late 70's. I am somewhat of a military history buff and am in the process of reading " Ripcord- Screaming Eagles Under Seige, Vietnam 1970" If any of you guys havent read it, you might consider doing so. Many of the names, you might remember from years past. In my opinion, the grunts did'nt lose the war. The government lost the war. You guys are heros in my book as well as in the minds of alot of people who know anything at all about what happened. I pray that this mess we are into now doesnt turn out to be a replay of what happened then. You would think that we might have learned from the mistakes of the past. But, I wonder.......Take care and God Bless you all.....Spec. 4 Stanley D. Miller

I am an aunt of Army Sgt Sean R. Grilley, who was killed in Iraq Oct 16, 2003. Sean was assigned to the 716th Military Police Battalion, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). Unfortunately, Seans parents divorced when he was a child, and there has been almost no contact between his mothers and fathers families since the divorce. His mother obviously did an awesome job raising this young man, and she has my heartfelt sympathy and complete respect. Seans father, a disabled veteran Marine, learned of his sons death from his siblings who happened to have found the information on the internet. because he does not have net access, we siblings are printing articles and mailing to him. He is so proud of the fine man his son had become, of his military service, and is torn about the tragic death of Sean. If anyone who reads this knew or served with Sean, i plead with you to send me an email sharing memories of him. i will make sure his father is provided with any emails I receive regarding Sean. I want my brother to have a belated gift of learning about the young man his precious son had become. My E-mail address is grilleygirl@yahoo.com. I also wish to thank all veterans who have served our country!

I served in the original bunch of Currahees after our battalion was formed in 1967 and deployed to Vietnam in Oct. 1967. I became a 1st Brigade PIO and our battalion first PIO, and got to know all the fine 327th PIOs during that time. I served under Maj. Spangler (Brigade PIO). I would like to know if he is still living and in good health. He was one fine individual.

I have been searching for my old friend, SSG Art Campbell, one of the 327th PIOs and later in charge of the PIO Lab at Phan Rang. Does anyone remember Art and know where I might start looking for him.

Come check out our website: www.currahee.org. We have a good many Currahees who came from and went to the 327th battalions. If you have any info. on Art Campbell, please contact me.

Co B,1st platoon 2/327 was on FSB Berchtesgaden, when the NVA tried to overrun it on the morning of June 16, 1969 (this battle is usually listed as June 14th.Viet Nam was across the international date line & June 14th, U.S. time was June 15th in Viet Nam. The Battle took place on the night of June 15/16th, but didn't start until 4AM on the 16th.) We were pounded by mortar fire trying to blow up the TOC. Only 4 of us at the top of the hill (all in the same foxhole) & 7 others out near the point of the hill, made it through the night without being hit. Yet, I have never seen any article that even mentions we were fighting there that night.
If any of the other 10 survivors are out there, I would like to hear from them.

I have researched the roster and I could not find my name listed. I was in Company B, 1st Battalion, 327th Infantry of the 1st Brigade of the 101st Airborne Brigade from November 1965 to October 1966. At one time, my company commander was Captain Hiser, I can not remember the others. I have a copy of my 201 file that verifies that I was assigned to the forementioned unit during that time. How can I have my name added to the roster? I also served on the M60 machine gun crew with Wise, Keller and Bradford for 6-8 months as an ammo bearer.

Glad I came across this site. It's been enjoyable but a little bit strange "catching up." God bless all the Eagles every where around the world. I had the great privilege of serving as a platoon leader in B Co, 2/327th while Chargin' Charlie Beckwith was the Battalion Commander. Colonel Beckwith died in 1995 in Austin, TX of a heart attack. From time to time, I've written Mrs. Beckwith. I joined the 2/327th during Tet and moved with the b
battalion to Firebase Panther, from which we could see into the City of Hue and watch the Marines battle to reclaim the City. We moved from there to Firebase Henry, which almost no one who wasn't in the Battalion has every heard of. It was a low hill on the Song Hue Trach and Highway 547 between Birmingham and Bastogne. At some point the Marines had been there and had salted the hill with powered CS. Everytime the artillery fired the CS came out of the ground and blinded all of us on the hill. I started out as the anti-tank platoon leader ... some of you may recall when we had 106 recoiless rifles mounted on jeeps. No enemy tanks around, but they made pretty decent bunker busters. Anyway, I was a green butter bar from Infantry OCS and airborne school . We went up Highway 547 and opened up Bastogne before a side trip north to LZ Jane and environs during the relief of Khe Sanh. Following that, we air assaulted back onto Highway 547 and set out west towards the A Shau. That was in very late-April or early-May 1968. I think late-April since I was wounded and my platoon sergeant, SSG Oscar C. Gallegos of Alice, TX, was killed on May 11, 1968. I was medivaced home through Japan, the Phillipines and San Francisco. After changing branches to Signal Corps, I returned to the 101st in August 1970 as Battalion Signal Officer, 1/501st. Unfortunately for me, by then we were very short of infantry officers and I was pressed into duty as Assistant Operations Officer, Air, and Commander of first E Company and then HQ Company. We went down Highway 9 to the Rockpile and Khe Sahn and we were the first unit to DaNang to provide perimeter security when the last Marine units packed up for home. Sad to say, I wasn't good enough to bring all my guys home and there are three names on the wall that I visit with regularly. Living in Arlington, VA and working DC I have an easy time of it visiting The Memorial. I've not made much of an effort to keep in touch with my fellow vets. Maybe it's time to begin. We were soldiers once, but it seems as if we were never very young.

Just ran across this site and have really enjoyed "catching up." I had the privilege of serving as Anti-tank Platoon Leader and 3rd Platoon Leader, B Co, 2/327th from Jan - May 1968. Some of you may recall when we still had 106 mm recoiless rifles mounted on jeeps. There were no enemy tanks around but they made pretty good bunker busters. During that period Chargin' Charlie Beckwith was the Battalion Commander. Colonel Beckwith died of a heart attack in Austin, TX in 1995. I recall the move from Firebase Panther, overlooking the city of Hue where we could see the marines fighting to retake the city after Tet, to first Firebase Henry and then Firebase Bastogne. I was wounded and my Platoon Sergeant, Staff Sergeant Oscar Conando Gallegos of Alice, Texas, was killed on May 5, 1968 along Highway 547. I returned to Vietnam in August 1970 - August 1971 and was a Company Commander with the 1/501st. Even though both were great units, I will always think of myself as a member of the "No Slack" Battalion. God bless you all.

Greetings to one and all, got back from visiting the soldiers at Delta Co 1-327th In in Ft Campbell Ky. Spent a few hours with them, these are bunch of good kids, they are professional in every sense of the word. Have looked into their eyes and saw the tiger and the compassion in their hearts. We should all be proud of the way they handle themselves and all they could say to me was that they were following in our footsteps. They are our pride and our warriors of the 21st century. They are true to their beliefs and they knew what they were fighting for, each other and for you and me. A big hearty Airborne and Air Assualt Sir!

Hello to all of you wonderful veterans. Thank you so much for fighting for American freedom. I stand proud each and every day that I say the pledge of allegiance. You men are a bunch that you just don't see anymore. I am the granddaughter of SSG Frederick J. Tregaskes and he was in Vietnam in 1966 until around October of 1967 I think.

I would like some information about Vietnam, any thing you would like to share with me, please do. I am in 10th grade at West Shamokin High School in PA, and my social studies class will be studying the Vietnam war pretty soon. If you want to send me anything, please do. My email address is kimberlytregaskes@yahoo.com .

I want to say thank you for fighting for me. Thank you for helping my grandfather out of that jungle in Vietnam. If you know him, please send me an email. I want to know what happened to him in Vietnam.

Pap, SSG Frederick J. Tregaskes is still alive, he is well. He was inducted into the Soldiers and Sailors Hall of Valor in Pittsburgh Pa a few years ago.

Please send me some information.

And once again, thank you for my freedom.

My umpteenth visit to the site...great job, guys. Recently moved to Santa Fe, NM, from Washington State, and have visited with ex-Tiger and friend Dan Clint and his wonderful wife Terresa. Dan is one of my favorite "unaffiliated" writer's on the VN experience. He speaks of our experiences from his heart and soul. Ran into Gary Epperley, my point-man, and talked with Randy LaFaver, best-ever RTO, from '69/'70. Our world is so full of many brave and great people such as these. I was PL for 2nd/C/1/327th (Sept 69 - March 70) and then Tigers (March 70 - July 70). Best wishes to all.

I hope everyone watched "The Siege of Fire Base Ripcord" on War Stories. They said that the media wasn't allowed to cover the battles in 1970. That's why there was so little footage and so few photographs. I said it before, nobody cared about Vietnam in 1970. We were an annoyance. The ARVN and war protestors got more coverage. Jane Fonda and John Kerry got more coverage. The war in I Corps was far from over in 1968. It didn't end in 1970 when I left either. 1971 was statistically the most dangerous year to be a chopper pilot. What must those men have gone through? Erick

I was a medic/OR Tech that helped your guys after the Bastogne shelling in December 1970. I had been playing Santa Claus for the patients and medics and was called to the intake/emergency room to help with a large number of your guys that had been torn up pretty bad. I saw lots of young healthy men with their limbs blown off, many internal injuries from head to toe. We helped save many lives but were unable to save some. I promise you we all did our best for each and every one of you. For those of you who have survived 30 +years , well done. Keep up the good work!

I came in as a replacement medic at Dak To and I went into the field assigned to Abu & Cobra Co's. I remember a guy named Killian getting killed and because of the similarity of our names people thought it was me. I recall Sgt. Fields getting shot in the arm and Joe Sumler and I both worked on treating his wound and he died inspite of our efforts from what seemed to be a very superficial wound. I recall some action in Phan Thiet, when two guys on a M-60 machine gun were both wounded, one was Peavey, but I forget the other's name. Both recovered and returned to action. I would like to get in touch with Jim Echols of Atlanta.

Grunts, boots, airtroops, groundpounders, Infantrymen.Listen up. The men in the rear echolon jobs we owe our lives to. They kept us supplied, sent us mail, logostics, troop movements, equipment repair. keep us in ammo, artillary, airstrikes. Got us water, medivaced out our wounded under intense fire, keep us running like a smooth green machine. Those who would call you REMF's or other names are not brothers in the true sense of the calling. I for one appreciate you. When we needed you , you answered our calls. Most men in Vietnam never saw close quarter combat, firefights, sustained battles but you were there, you worried and cared about us. You did not let us down. Thank You rear echolon Troops, for without you no infantryman would have or could have survived. Vietnam Veterans and Brothers All.

Yankee Jim, your comment of Christmas at Nouc Ngot, immediately brought back my memory of Christmas 68 on Los Banos. I had just taken over 3rd platoon, one of the men's mother had sent an 18"-24" christmas tree with lights. We set it up in the platoon command bunker, used a claymore wire buried in the dirt and ran it to the artillery generator and spliced it in. What a thrill for the members of the platoon. That mother made a lot of guys happy. I'll never forget the rats jumping across my stomach when I was trying to get some zzz's in that bunker, one of the things you get used to. We had a visit from Santa and some Playboy bunnies? on the landing pad. What a Christmas.
I pray for all that are over seas now and wish them all a safe tour and return.
Happy New Year!
Airborne, No Slack and Above The Rest.

It's hard to believe that almost a year has passed since I first heard from many of the guys of the 327th. You have helped me with putting the pieces together of what happened on 24, Dec., 1970, just outside of Firebase Bastogne. Many of you have shared your memories of my cousin, SP4 Steve ("Stevie") Pohancek, who was K I A on that Christmas eve day. Mostly, you all reached out to me, and treated me as your "lil' Bro' "; and that will always mean so very much to me, I can't describe it in words. But, best of all, some of you have become very close friends (Y'all know who you are!), and that means the most of all. Another 24, Dec. is almost on us; so if you are awake at 04h15, Time Zone ROMEO (Eastern Standard), on the morning of Christmas Eve day, remember the guys who were killed that day.

All of you are "ABOVE THE REST!"

Welby

I served with B Battery, 2nd Bn, 320th FA, 1st Bde, 101st Abn in Vietnam from 1966 thru 1967.
As I watch the performance of the 1st Brigade in Iraq, I am once again brought back to my time as a member of the Screaming Eagles. It is with great pride that my heart goes out to all those who have lost their lives in this struggle. I am forever humbled and in debt to these brave men and women who now serve.
I just completed a triangular case for my flag, and as I did so, I realized how many have died for what it represents: A beacon of hope for the oppressed, a talisman for all freedom loving people, and a hallowed symbol of Liberty.

I am trying to locate my brother Rea Ellithorpe, he was born in Nashville, Tennessee on August 1, 1955. He was in the 101st from 11/72 - 7/74. He made a career of the military and traveled all over the country. Our mother passed away in 2000 and now my dad is in poor health. My dad has been in the hospital and I need to get in touch with my brother. My dad has talked to my brother over the years but he did not have an address and the telephone number he had is not correct. I would really appreciate any information regarding my brother's location. Thank you

This is an e-mail that was sent to me, I hope someone in ABU can help these fine people out.

Dear Company A, 1st Battalion (Airborne) 327th Infantry Veterans:
Can you help me (a very elderly lady) locate a living witness to the enemy action that resulted in the death of my beloved nephew, David Lee Wilkerson, when he was the 3rd platoon's machine gunner on March 24, 1968?
I have been told that if a living witness can be located, a request to Congress may be made to have his award upgraded to the Medal of Honor - as that would have initially been awarded had there been less political pressure by protesters to limit the Medal of Honors given in Vietnam.
Two enemy engagements are listed on is Silver Star citation that was awarded in 1968. The following quotation is from last paragraph citing his final act of heroism on March 24, 1968:
"On the following day, 24 March 1968, the third platoon was moving west through very thick undergrowth. As the company moved along the second platoon, which was the middle element, was ambushed by an u undetermined size enemy force. The initial enemy burst wounded the second platoons' machine gunner and immediately the call came for another machine gun. Almost simultaneously Specialist Wilkerson picked up his machine gun and made his way through an intense hail of enemy automatic weapons fire to the point where the initial contact was made. He immediately began laying down a base of fire covering the entire area so the second platoon would pull back their wounded personnel. Specialist Wilkerson kept firing and moving, remaining alone and exposed, covering the second platoon's withdrawal until he himself was killed by enemy fire. His actions are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army.

Thank you for your help,
JoAnn Wilkerson
(Mrs. Conley Wilkerson)

P.S. My husband is veteran of World War Two.
