Thanks Dave! Irealy injoyed your work on this “burning girl ” story. My time was 68-69, camp carrol, evens,Tay Ninh. I was with the 2nd/20th ARA “Blue Max” I have never been to the wall,and probley will never go, to much “gook” involvement for me. I don’t support that group. 58,220 men that gave there lives are remembered there and to have a lier come there and give her forgivness to them for some thing they had no part in. Clinton, Fonda, how many more will come there to shit on these honered soul’s? Lets all feel sorry for the poor Vietnameese, ask a “combat vet” on recon how “chuck” left our downed pilots and wounded? Where are the news stories of the atrocities done to them? When will the “REAL” vet’s of Nam climb out of there holes and tell the true stories of Viet Nam, not the pretty stories told by hollywood, politicain’s and super stars? Thanks Dave…………….
I was with the HHC 65th Engr Bn from 8/68 to 5/69. I was lucky and worked out of the Asst Div Engr office. I was at Cu Chi the night we had 10 CH47s blown up with sachel charger. A prayer for the ones that didn’t make it back. And for the ones that made it back, aren’t we lucky. A great sight.

Excellent job on this Dave. I’m also a former TPS-25 operator, that was later in B-TAB, 1-26FA. Was also in a tower falling accident at Can Giouc around Jun 71. The similarities are uncanny. While in Nam I was in D Btry. 8th TAB, 25th Arty. Worked with the 265th, 267th, and 277th FA Dets. All TPS-25 sites. Went back in Jun 72 to Feb 73 and was on TPS 58 sites then. Was in B-TAB, 1-26th FA in Babenhausen, FRG from Jan 76 to Mar 77, much later than you. Great site and thoroughly enjoyed. Carry on brother and God bless you.

I served with the 25th Infantry Division “A” Battery 7/11 Field Artillery Tay Ninh, RVN 1968-69. I now have Peripheral Neuropathy (PN), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), high levels of arsenic in my blood & urine (due to agent blue I believe). The VA just denies all claims except the PTSD, so what else is new. We must unite and fight for our benefits due for the Agent Orange damage done to us all!

Thank you for your insight and your sharing of your experience we know that it was hard for people to go over, and come back. Thank you
