I WANTED TO SAY THAT I ENJOYED YOUR PAGES. MY FATHER,JIMMIE JAMES, WAS WITH THE 25TH INFANTRY IN 1971(CO.D 1ST.BN 14TH INF. 1ST.BDE.).HE TOO WAS TRAINED IN GROUND RADAR. IN 1972, HE REQUESTED TO GO TO VIETNAM WHERE HE SERVED ON SEVERAL FIRE BASES. HE WAS WITH MACV-FRAC TEAM #1 RADAR. IF ANYONE WOULD HAPPEN TO HAVE KNOWN MY FATHER, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. THANKS

Just got done looking over most of your interesting page.Especially liked your references to Ft. Sill, OK. since this is where I’m currently stationed as a instructor.My step-father was also in Hanau, Germany.I’m a former enlisted man. 13F forward observer.

I was there with you around the same time except that I was stationed with the 2/27 Wolfhounds at Cu Chi. I read your bio and was just looking back. Thanks for being here.

I was surfing the net, looking for some howitzer pics when I found your page…GREAT SITE!!. Vietnam was very instructive and touching. I would like to invite you, any veteran and specially any soldier who have been assigned to the 4th Infantry Division Artillery to stop by our page. We’re rebuilding our history book but need more inputs, pictures or memorability items from former soldiers. Keep it up! Iron Gunner!!

I read your page because I’m doing a report about VietNam Veterans coming home. I also looked at your page because my father served in the 25th Infantry Div. too. He was there ’67-’68 and stationed in Chu Chi. Thank you for your help for my paper.

You must be a really good person.I read all your narratives, and really appreciate your devotion to family. I was “over there” before it was news. 507th. TAC COM GP. Provided radar coverage for all of the “advisor flights” and air america out of Thailand. It is strange to look at inquiries from the “kids” of our peers who only relate to that time through history books. Oh ! I have a 1961 pa22-108 Colt! Luvvin it! Hope to meet you someday. Skipper D
