Dave, Great job you did on your WEB site. Really liked the way you put together your story from the begining to the end. Brought back many memories and at times thought I was reading my own story. Served with the 3/4 Cav at Cu Chi, 65-66. God Bless and WELCOME HOME
I very much commend you in your service in Nam and in how far you have come after. I thank you for serving our country, and creating a web page that everyone can learn from, you truly are a wonderful person! With much Regards!
Very, very nice page. I was the artillery that had to get up from decent sleep and shoot the fire missions you called in. Thanks a lot! Glad I found your page.

enjoyed your page . I was with the 554th Engr at chuchi and then with the c co 588th engr at lai khe 1969 – 70 looking for anyone there at that time . welcome home vets.
Great page. My first plane ride was in the Pacer oqned as a company plane by State Bond and Mortgage of New Ulm MN. Saying it was a four place was somewhat stetching my experience with the plane. I learned in a taildragger.Aeronca. Thanks for a great page.
Great web site. Enjoyed reading your experiences in Viet Nam. I was there in 69-70 at Pleiku and An Khe. B Co. 4th Avn Battalion 4th Infantry Div.
Dave, Enjoyed your website and positive attitude toward VN. I, too, was a draftee, something by choice. I needed the GI Bill for college. I was a medic and my bed was at Long Binh. 66-67. 61st Medical Detachment. A satellite of the 44th Medical Brigade. Again I appreciate your positive attitude.
Thanks for a great story about your Tri-Pacer and your dad. I have been through the sudden loss and sudden responsiblity thing too! I’m a student pilot (at 42) and think I would love to own a Tri-Pacer in a year or so. Comments? Thanks again for a great web-page — rgds jim

His name is Floyd Lester Steward, “Bub”., Springfield, WV. Could you please give us the name of some web sites where we could submit info. for feedback? We would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you, Arbutus Largent and Michelle Loy

I am glad you have started this site. I was in the 4/23, 25th Inf. Div. from 1966-1967. I saw a lot of my best friends go down and I haven’t been able to forget them. We did not have to loose them. I would have rather not come back without them. But I came back with them in my heart and mind. I lost my squad leader. His name was SSG. Robert and he was a good man and did not have to be there. He only had 2 days left and then he was going to go home and be with his wife and kids. I’d like to tell more but I am having a hard time trying to write this, so will try later, OK? Keep up the good work. We need more like you. God be with you. G.W.
Really great web site, Dave! Easy to navigate and very enjoyable. Keep up the good work. Regards, Tom
Nice page. Keep up the good work.
I flew with the 119th.AHC in the central highlands in 1969-70. Keep up the good work and ALWAYS remain strong to your convictions…jim

Dave, from time to time our paths must have crossed in and around Tay Ninh provence. I was stationed with the 3/13 field arty. 155 mm sp’s. We spent a good deal of time “Fire Balling ” around the country side, and on occasion we would be visited by a small group of guys in a duce and a half shop van kind of thing. They would set up their operation on our defensive line, open the back of the truck and glue themselfs to a TV screen when a “flare” would appear on the screen they would mark it on the crt tube call in the grids and all hell would shortly there after take place. Thanks Dave! you guys saved our asses more then once!WC
Hi, enjoyed your site. I have an Australian friend who has an english Archeology professor interested in lost temples in Vietnam. I am trying to help them find sources of aerial photos that could be useful. They have a new technique to scan and ID such structures. Any ideas on sources of photos? thanks, Jay Smith
The PA-12 Super Cruiser brings back memories of many hours of flying with friend of family – I was about 8-10 years old. He went on buying trips around West Texas and New Mexico. Plane was same color – red & cream. The seats were leather. Helped create a life long interest in aviation. Saw your Sabre – planning to model F-86F (R/C scale)- Trying to locate photos/images of Thunderbirds paint & markings. Know where might be available? Steve
Nice story and pictures.

WELCOME HOME BUDDY. I WAS IN NAM FROM MARCH 1967 TO DEC I968. WAS AT CU CHI WITH 554 ENGR BN KNEW ALOT OF GUY FROM 2ND OF 14TH AND 3/4 CAV.
I also was with the 25th in ’69-’70. 3rd Sqdn, 4th Cav. Hq & Hq Troop. Spent many days at FB Hampton and the behind the Green Door and buddies in the Navy there. Were you there when the underwater sappers blew up the galley? You pictures bring back a flood of memories. My photos were destroyed during the Cambodian invasion in 70. Peace Brother.
This is obviously not my true name. Am still goosey about Nam and other HUMINT. Real good job. I was also with 25th DIVARTY, Tet I, one medevac, and years of medical treatment. Accurate facts. The press and Clinton are doing the same as in the 60s, but not on as great a scale. It is more sneaky and perhaps more dangerous to the country.
I really enjoyed the read. Brought back a lot of memories of my time at Udorn Thailand. We only had very sporadic enemy activity though. I spend my time in a radar van also. A monopulse autotracking unit directing arclight and tac (skyspot) missions in Laos and North Vietnam. I hated going up on that tower at night to change a magnetron. Sure felt like a big old bullseye! Ate C rations while on night duty because we were out on the wire by the tower. Crazy shchedule too. 2 nights, four days, 2 days off, four nights, 2 days, four days off. I finally got used to occassionally waking up with lizards (gekos) on my face. Could have been worse. Back to your page. Your writing is excellent. The work you put in on the text really shows. Ex technical writer, marketing material and proposal writer.

I served as a platoon leader with A Troop 3/4 Cav at Cu Chi from March to July, 1967. I still get letters occasionally from our Forward Observer that was attached to our Troop. I was transferred to D Troop, 199th Infantry. Brigade in July. Your comments about the Vietnam War are right on point. Sounds like you made a great transition to the civilian world.
Very Nice … Will return to finish looking at the pictures of airplanes .. FB
WAS WITH B 1-8 AIR CAV 20 NOV 67 -68 WAS A GRUNT ALSO HAVE YOU JOINED THE JUMPING MUSTANGS ASSN YET…PLEASE DO YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT PEACE
I just loved your story about Vietnam. I read it over and over. Each time it makes me cry and remember the men that died. You really do have a nice page here. ~Sgt. Jon M Ballou

I enjoyed reading about your experience and military experience. I can relate to your experience although my experience was somewhat different as I was a medic and served from the fall of 70 through may of 71 at Quang Tri. This site brings back a lot of memories, both good and bad, but I’m really glad that I happened across it as I was cruising the net. Bookmarked it as I think I’ll be back to look it over again and to check out some of the links you got to other sites associated with the Vietnam experience Thank You
I’m building a website that contains a collage of historical images with links to the sites I picked tham from. I hope you don’t mind if I put up a couple of pictures and a link to your web page. Alex
