The Average Military Man ( Author Unknown )

The average age of the military man is 19 years.

He is a short haired, tight-muscled kid who, under normal circumstances is considered by society as half man, half boy. Not yet dry behind the ears, not old enough to buy a beer, but old enough to die for his country.

He never really cared much for work and he would rather wax his own car than wash his father's; but he has never collected unemployment either.

He's a recent High School graduate; he was probably an average student, pursued some form of sport activities, drives a ten year old jalopy, and has a steady girlfriend that either broke up with him when he left, or swears
to be waiting when he returns from half a world away.

He listens to rock and roll or hip-hop or rap or jazz or swing and 155mm Howitzers.

He is 10 or 15 pounds lighter now than when he was at home because he is working or fighting from before dawn to well after dusk.
He has trouble spelling, thus letter writing is a pain for him, but he can field strip a rifle in 30 seconds and reassemble it in less time in the dark.

He can recite to you the nomenclature of a machine gun or grenade launcher and use either one effectively if he must.

He digs foxholes and latrines and can apply first aid like a professional.

He can march until he is told to stop or stop until he is told to march.

He obeys orders instantly and without hesitation, but he is not without spirit or individual dignity.

He is self-sufficient. He has two sets of fatigues: he washes one and wears the other. He keeps his canteens full and his feet dry.

He sometimes forgets to brush his teeth, but never to clean his rifle.

He can cook his own meals, mend his own clothes, and fix his own hurts. If you're thirsty, he'll share his water with you; if you are hungry, his food.

He'll even split his ammunition with you in the mi! dst of battle when you run low.

He has learned to use his hands like weapons and weapons like they were his hands. He can save your life - or take it, because that is his job.

He will often do twice the work of a civilian, draw half the pay and still find ironic humor in it all. He has seen more suffering and death then he should have in his short lifetime.

He has stood atop mountains of dead bodies, and helped to create them.

He has wept in public and in private, for friends who have fallen in combat and is unashamed.

He feels every note of the National Anthem vibrate through his body while at rigid attention, while tempering the burning desire to 'square-away' those around him who haven't bothered to stand, remove their hat, or even stop talking. In an odd twist, day in and day out, far from home, he defends their right to be disrespectful.

Just as did his Father, Grandfather, and Great-grandfather, he is paying the price for our f! reedom.

Beardless or not, he is not a boy.

He is the American Fighting Man that has kept this country free for over 200 years.

He has asked nothing in return, except our friendship and understanding.

Remember him, always, for he has earned our respect and admiration with his blood.

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!

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.

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.

RELEASE 03-022



FORT CAMPBELL, Ky., February 6, 2003. - The 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and associated units stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky,
have received orders to deploy to the U.S. Central Command area of operations (AOR) to support possible future operations in the global war on terrorism. The specifics of any such operations are not known at this
time. As the world's premiere air assault division, the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and its 270 helicopters will provide Central Command substantial operational flexibility and combat power, as well as
the ability to conduct long-range helicopter attacks and air assault operations should those capabilities be required to successfully prosecute the global war on terrorism. The 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) provided some of the first combat units in Afghanistan - which included Task Force Rakkasan and
Apache Attack Helicopters - and these units participated in Operation Anaconda and the other major operations conducted in the spring and summer of 2002.
Units that have received deployment orders include elements of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), the 101st Corps Support Group, and the 86th Combat Support Hospital. Fort Campbell leaders cannot at this time discuss specific numbers of soldiers deploying or deployment destinations; nor can they speculate on
future employment of forces.
