Just discovered the web site for 327th and wanted to be added to those wanting to make contact with old buddies. I was on the Leroy Eltinge with “B” Co. 1/327.
Sometime around Christmas of ’65 I was transferred to HHQ Co. to be a jeep driver for a guy who had just made captain.

Shortly afterwards I was transferred to “A” Co. and about March of ’66 was shot through the left thigh in an ambush. I was Medivaced to Nha Trang for a month or so then went back out with “A” Co. until my year was up. At that time a buddy name Gary Simmons and I extended for a desk job with a signal unit in Chulon.

One guy I’d like to find out about is Sgt. Thiebault, who we called Mr. “T”. He was my squad leader in “B” Co. then made platoon Sgt. He was moving up the ranks fast and definitely was an incredible soldier.
