Was in the 25th C battery 2/77 artillery from Feb. 70 till I think about Sept. 70 (the 25 stood down and I was transferred to the 1st cav) Was on FSB’s Wood, Quick, Dau Tiang base camp, Tennessee. Anyone else there?
I thought this website was very good! It made me sad though. I am glad I was not in your position! Good luck in everything you do!
I THOUGHT IT KICKED ASS THAT YOU HAD A DECENT SELECTION OF WAR PICTURES BUT COULD OF USED MORE JUNGLE TYPE PICTURES FOR THE VIETNAM WAR

Great site, it helped me a lot with my project about the Vietnam war (I’m doing a project about the movie “The Deer Hunter”, we’re investigating if the movie tells a story about Vietnam that’s really true. Thanks a lot
Password money — Btry 6/77th Arty 25th Inf Div. 3-23-68 to 3-23-69 Welcome home Brothers and Sisters. God’s Blessings on You and Yours.
My dad, Ken Nichols, was in the 25th infantry division B troop, 3rd squadron, 4th calvary from April ’67 to April of ’68. If anyone was in this area or associated with any of the above, please let me know. Thanks, Nichole
I love what you have done! I find it truly amazing that you would be willing to share your stories, and spend so much time on your site. Your site is so intristing, and very informative!
Dave, what a great web site you have. I stumbled across it and spent a good part of my day on it. I was with 2/8th Cav, 1st Cav Div. in ’68-69 in Tay Ninh Province as a grunt. I’ve got a few photos of the Black Virgin Mountain, too! I’ll share them with you if you want. Glad you made it home and kept your sense of humor! JIM

Your memories you have offered to others honor those who never came home. I never served in Vietnam, but chose to volunteer before the end. Sadly, images of two friends who, lacking financial resources for college, ended up being drafted and never returning to their parents and brothers and sisters still haunt me to this day. They stood and served their nation to the end, others did not, and so must be endlessly tormented by their personal act of shame. Thanks.
I am very interested in going into the Army but I am not sure about Boot camp yet. I still need alittle more thinking but these sites really help me make a great decision. keep up the good work on your sites.

When i first read some of the things the got to me. I know I’m only 17 but the things i’ve heard or read make me want to cry. I’m glad i found this wed page.
Really enjoyed your website-thanks for sharing all your experiences. Just yesterday I have contacted with some people with my old unit, the 84th Engr. Battalion, Qui Nhon 1966-67. Thanks again for a great web site.
Hooah and welcome back home brother. I was doing some deeeeeeeeeeeprecon on RTOs for my new club at Yahoo. I came across this LZ. You got a great page here, well done. I was wondering if you could do a recon on http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/thewhipandprc I am lookin for Nam Vets who were RTOs or had experience with them or with radio equipment. My husband Steve was a Chief RTO serving 2 TODs in the Army Special Forces, and he was in Cambodia and Thai and other places where he was not supposed to be at. I noticed that there were not alot out there for RTOs so I created a club for you cool and elite people who really were the main eliment of the unit, the commo men who called in Arty as well as choppers for extractions and resupply. You were the ones who literally got your team members out of the shit. Good job here Dave…Keep up the good work.
I really enjoyed your web page !!! I was with Co. C 3/22 and Co B. 2/22 ( M ) “triple Deuce” from 11/69 – 11/70 as an 81MM Mortar crewman. Welcome home ! Larry
Dave, Great story! Welcome Home!
great page…i’m doing a report for school thanks for the pictures and the info!
A facinating web page. I am now currently serving as a 105mm Battery Executive Officer for A/3-7 FA at Schofield Barracks. The candor and honesty of your thoughts make for a very enjoyable learning experience. Reading these memories put a true human touch to the War. Thank you for sharing with my generation.
I was with Hq&Bco.725th Ord Bat, 25th Inf. Stationed Schofield Barricks Hawaii, 60-62, served Nam 12-24-61 to 3-18-62 wounded and evacked out Saigon then Clark AFB. Few people knew we were there that early. It got really ugly later luckily I was out and home. Your built a great site.

Dave, Very much enjoyed your web site! Our lives are parallel in that I too got into R/C and got licenced in full-sized aviation in the early 70’s after spending a few years in the service, including a 13 month stint in RVN. I was in the I-Corp area (3rd MAW, 1st LAAMs) and also saw roughly the same Bob Hope show you saw when he brought it to DaNang. Thanks for the excerpt about the “Girl in the Photo” fraud. There is plenty of disinformation still floating around about Viet Nam, even this long after the war. I am a member of the SWPC and am thinking about aquiring a short wing of some sort after I retire in a about 5 years. I was a partner with a 1973 PA-28R-200 until I went overseas (Saudi Arabia) in 1996. Now, I just want to putter around the sky in a nice ragwing when I get home. Regards, Dan
God bless you and Thank you for serving! My site is a Tribute to my father who was KIA 3 weeks before I was born.
