The Fading (Lest We Forget) On a day both cold and gray A gentle man has passed away. No one noticed, no one cared. His life alone was seldom shared. His home was shady, calm and dark, A hidden tree within the park. Alone, he thought of all the ways That haunted memories ruled his days. Once, a different story told Of days of glory to unfold. But, Fate took choice from young men’s hands, And sent them off to foreign lands. Young and strong they took a stand, Protecting democratic land. For our freedom they have lost All their youth at such a cost. Once at home they were reviled; Stories spoke of soldiers wild. A few were troubled—most were not. With pride and honor, they bore their lot. Some went off, alone and grieving. Cursed and spat on, disbelieving, Traumatized from such an error, They lived the past with nights of terror. One vet stood out most of all. I watched him take a harder fall. Afraid that he might lose this fight, He fogged his mind with frenzied flight. For safety’s sake, he hid his life To shelter us from all his strife. He found a place where he called home, Away from where most people roam. And here he lived a life obscure, He dulled his pain with alcohol’s cure. But, alcohol, a fickle friend, Turned on him and forced his end. In days long past we placed our dreams In care of men whose lives’--it seems-- Were intertwined within our own; We let them know they weren’t alone. Soldiers were immortalized We looked to them with hopeful eyes. When US flags in pride unfurled, Brave and strong, they saved the world. Days long gone, and now unknown, Veterans are tossed a bone. No cash, nor shelter, but a wall, Placed upon the far off Mall. Most soldiers never have the time To visit such a place sublime. While others simply cannot go; They have no means, no one to owe… And, so, a quiet soldier sighs Without the wall to grace his eyes. His end is finally drawing near, Release, at last, from pain and fear. Yet, honor still within him rests, Brave and proud he passed war’s tests. He gave his all to quell our fears, But, now, he quits this veil of tears. And, though no one will ever cry, And, though old soldiers never die. Still, upon this cold, gray day Another soldier fades away. [email protected] on 12/25/99

He is thinking about postponeing it as he is afraid his wife's ckeckes won't be enought to pay all of there bills while he layed up. As his disiblity insurance won't start untill he is out of work for 90 days. What I had in mind is give him a card shower with a small cash gift in it to help them over this hard spot and he get's back on his feet and back to work. His name and address is Burt C Greenfield Jr. 1228 Hartford St. Colorado SpringsCo 80906-5527 Thanks for all of you Veterans of The Vietnam War GOD BLESS ALL WHO READ THIS.

Jerry from MI & Covan: PLEASE, let's stop the "war of words"! I know we REMFS fought a "different war" than the GRUNTS, but I also know this is fruitless! For myself, I can only remember those I helped to prepare for the "final shipment" home. So many torn apart - so many families torn - isn't it time to come to terms with ourselves? Some of us endured the frightful battles - some endured the aftermath. Please, let us have PEACE, if only amongst ourselves? I've been there/done that, and don't like the anti-feelings being expressed!

Richard Brown from KY, you sir are a BROTHER, you talk the talk and i can deduce that you walk the walk. Its a terrible thing when we cant trust anymore, but hell we couldnt trust the hippies in the past. Remember they talked all that love and peace stuff but still created trouble for us coming home. So that you know REMF's as i stated were way back from forward areas. Now a lot of guys like, truck drivers who drove the roads and got ambushed arent Remfs,they got me my bullets and beans, neither are MP's who had convoy guard. But i spent a month in the hospital in vung tau, all remfs stationed there. doing a good job mind you but still remfs. in cam rahn where they had lifeguard MOS and stuff like that-Remfs. till 70 when the sappers did a job on em. too bad. but still remfs, except for a couple buds i had in the hospital there who had got there million dollar wounds and the damn remfs couldnt even protect them in the safest place in Nam. saigon warriors, now that was a bunch of remfs. see Mr. Brown it just takes a little chit chat and i already know i would buy you a beer. Now d fisher i dont know about. But read me loud and clear DFISHER. JUST BECAUSE WE WERE IN VIETNAM DOESNT MAKE US BROTHERS. THE WHOLE COUNTRY WAS A COMBAT ZONE BUT THERE WERE MANY VARYING DEGREES OF COMBAT. MINE WAS (A EXPRESSION FROM TODAY)24/7/359 (GOT SOME R N R) Because i have fought for liberty i have the freedom and the right as you do to choose my buds. dont know how much time you spent wet, cold, hungry and scared. probably not much. did you ever hold your bud waiting for a dustoff, and feel him die. someone you shared a canteen with, chow with, made plans to do things in the world with. killed dinks with. i dont think so. maybe one day the remfs will get it like the american public finally has. and hey dfisher yes i know remfs can get PTSD its under the DMS also as like a guilt syndrome i have heard it described. i dont begrudge them but just take ownership that a remfs war and a grunts war were worlds apart. and never the twain shall meet.

OK, COVAN - - - I challenge you to talk to a REMF! We took care of over 73,000 patients in Vietnam, and nearly 10,000 we battle casualties! Are you stating that because we were REMF's we can't experience PTSD, or WHAT? How can you be the way you are? Sometimes we just need to recognize our BROTHERS, and damn the personal feelings! CALL ME....I WILL RESPOND!

Seems some people here still dont get it. Hey, KY guy, Go tell it to the Chaplain was just plain ole military sarcasm used from basic training to C&G; staff college it wasnt just a Vietnam joke, contrary to the belief of some everything did not originate in Nam, although shamming and excuses for every major illness seems to have started there. I read all the letters here and the two I think you are referring to are slightly more believable than some of the others, at least most of the words are correctly spelled and easier to peruse. All of these pages are filled with Wannabees so you could as easily be one as the next person. Some people dont like getting flamed so they dont post there info on open forums like this. I for one do not. And by the way I have beaucoup proof of my time there(and its not all that top secret so I dont have to kill you if I told you crap) and not that I would feel the need to prove it to anyone here. I was just plain old army infantry for two years,(not Seal, not SF, not Force Recon, not Ranger LRRP or any of that fashionable thing to be) all out in the real bush to include cambode and laos and am proud of it. I didnt care for REMFs then and still dont. I and by platoon missed to many mail delivery days and hot chow cause the choppers were tied up getting ice and beer to the REMFs. Hell we even missed c-rats on more than one occasion cause the birds were ferrying Donut dollies to the REMFs hideouts for cookies and juice or whatever. You had your war and I had mine. I have beaucoup buds to say hey to every time I visit that black slash known as THE WALL, and I am sure you got some on there also, dont mean we have to like each other though. I tend to hang with people that understand and lived my war, I have that right as you have yours. I am just more particular than most on who I call my brother. My brothers watched my back while I watched theirs, and thats the rub. Don't mean nothing. Never did and never will. Hell for all you know I could be a 90 year old grandma or a 12 year old punk kid. Or I could be a 53 year old slightly overweight, grey-haired former grunt who wakes up every night bone tired from going up the same damn hills over and over again wondering why is that damn bunker full of dinks still there when he knows he dropped two grenades in it last night. Adios and Xin Loi.

Having carefully read two of your letters i find as follows.. 1 You were not in Nam. 2 Your bitterness may stim from this fact or not. 3 I think you were and still a coward. 4 Go tell it to the chaplin. is a viet nam joke that you didn't reconise. ----You cowardness stims from the fact every body uses there real name XX,XX isn't yours........I do not collect one dime from the Goverment. I do get treatment there but i pay for that. Sounds like they turned you down and your only recourse was to attack the ones who got help. I spent 1965-1966-1967-1968 in country so tell me your next hero story.

Very interesting site and comments here. I checked out the DD-214 info and yes if you have a certain number it means you were abducted by aliens and the VA will give you 100%. Also to the SUPPORT TROOPs who all became Combat PTSD Certified in TET 68, answer this--would you give up your monthly checks to be cured or do you enjoy being Looney-tooney, i think i know the answer!! the money is too good to give up, then you may have to work. Shows what you know about the WAR when you say you were winning-winning what??? the Mamasan's love with your money spent on her girls and beer. The real line troops know we were never winning-it wasnt intended for us to win. Its always amazing to me that every REMF north of Saigon was at Hue during TET and every Marine was Force RECON and at Khe Sahn besides. If there were so many there why did it take so long to break the Seige.

I was recently looking for current info on Cam Ranh Bay. I was stationed there in 1970 with CBMU 302. I saw a website of a vet who had returned to Vietnam and said he so wanted to return to Cam Ranh Bay, but couldn't because it was still off limits to tourists. Does anybody know why. I saw another web site that showed satelite photos of Cam Ranh Bay in 1985-86, when it was a Russian nuclear submarine base.

I find it very interesting that none of these Veterans Sites mention Hepatitis C (HCV). I am a US Army Vietnam Era Vet (74-77)and my husband is a USMC Vietnam Vet (68-69) and we have both been diagnosed with HCV. I am also a HCV Support Group leader in So. Calif. and a patient advocate. Over 2 million Vets have HCV and most of those are Vietnam Vets. If you were EVER given a blood transfusion, did IV or intranasal drugs, got tattoos, came into contact with anyone elses blood, or were given your innoculations by the Phnumatic Jet Injector you need to be tested for Hepatitis C immediately. HCV attacks the liver and most people with it are asymptomatic. It leads to cirrhosis and liver failure, as well as liver cancer. The VA does NOT automatically test for it if you go to a clinic. Neither do Primary Care Physicians. You must ask specifically for the Heptatitis C test. This disease does not have to be a killer. Detection and treatment can save your life. There are 2 bills in Congressional committees - House Bill HR1020 and Senate Bill SB71. Every Vietnam Veteran needs to write to your Senators and Representatives and ask them to get these bills passed into law. The bills provide that Hepatitis C is a presumtion of infection for Vietnam Vets. This will enable these vets to get much needed disability from the VA. Please help our brothers and sisters who unknowingly got this disease serving our country. For more HCV info: http://www.geocities.com/TheTropics/Shores/4259

As a two tour (68-69)(70-71) US Army Infantry, out in the real bush humping a 70 lb ruck,being in real combat with a CIB to prove it, i am appalled and ashamed at some of the Wannabee crap I have just read here. Trust me people there were not that many Green Beret, Airborne, Ranger, snake eating guys there, out of 1000 Vets you should find only 3 of these elite troops. And based on the Army ratio of 10 support troops to every one soldier in a real Combat Unit, you do the math. Kiddies if your Dads never told you any blood curdling war stories its maybe because REMF's only got Beer Joint stories to tell. Also I just cant understand why it is that 98% of the PTSD claimers I meet or hear about were REMF support troops and never humped a ruck nor CA'ed into a hot LZ, what for pete's sake are they claiming as stressors, VD shots. We are never going to get our Country's respect as long as these types of crap stories are made out to be the typical VET experience. Burkett you said it all in "Stolen Valor", we are our own worst enemy.

Covington, La United States of America - Thursday, November 18, 1999 at 01:36:54 (EST)

I'm not sure what to make of this or how true this is. However....... In a message dated 11/9/99 10:28:17 PM Pacific Standard Time, PlaneScott writes: I don't usually get cranked up over these things, but this is an exception. Read the stories below and send this to as many people as you can think of. Maybe if it goes around the world, it will have some effect. Looks like Hanoi Jane may be honored as one of the "100 Women of the Century". JANE FONDA remember? Unfortunately many have forgotten and still countless others have never known how Ms. Fonda betrayed not only the idea of our "country" but the men who served and sacrificed during Vietnam. There are few things I have strong visceral reactions to, but Jane Fonda's participation in what I believe to be blatant treason, is one of them. Part of my conviction comes from exposure to those who suffered her attentions. The first part of this is from an F-4E pilot. The pilot's name is Jerry Driscoll, a River Rat. In 1978, the Commandant of the USAF Survival School was a former POW in Ho Lo Prison-the "Hanoi Hilton". Dragged from a stinking cesspit of a cell, cleaned, fed, and dressed in clean PJs, he was ordered to describe for a visiting American "Peace Activist" the "lenient and humane treatment" he'd received. He spat at Ms. Fonda, was clubbed, and dragged away. During the subsequent beating, he fell forward upon the camp Commandant's feet, accidentally pulling the man's shoe off-which sent that officer berserk. In '78, the AF Col still suffered from double vision (which permanently ended his flying days) from the Vietnamese Col's frenzied application of wooden baton. From 1983-85, Col Larry Carrigan was the 347FW/DO (F-4Es). He spent 6 years in the "Hilton"-the first three of which he was "missing in action". His wife lived on faith that he was still alive. His group, too, got the cleaned/fed/clothed routine in preparation for a "peace delegation" visit. They, however, had time and devised a plan to get word to the world that they still survived. Each man secreted a tiny piece of paper, with his SSN on it, in the palm of his hand. When paraded before Ms. Fonda and a cameraman, she walked the line, shaking each man's hand and asking little encouraging snippets like: "Aren't you sorry you bombed babies?" and "Are you grateful for the humane treatment from your benevolent captors?" Believing this HAD to be an act, they each palmed her their sliver of paper. She took them all without missing a beat. At the end of the line and once the camera stopped rolling, to the shocked disbelief of the POWs, she turned to the officer in charge...and handed him the little pile. Three men died from the subsequent beatings. Col Carrigan was almost number four. For years after their release, a group of determined former POWs Including Col Carrigan, tried to bring Ms. Fonda and others up on charges of treason. I don't know that they used it, but the charge of "Negligent Homicide due to Depraved Indifference" would also seem appropriate. Her obvious "granting of aid and comfort to the enemy", alone, should've been sufficient for the treason count. However, to date, Jane Fonda has never been formally charged with anything and continues to enjoy the privileged life of the rich and famous. I, personally, think that this is shame on us, the American Citizenry. Part of our shortfall is ignorance: most don't know such actions ever took place. Thought you might appreciate the knowledge. Most of you've probably already seen this by now... only addition I might add to these sentiments is to remember the satisfaction of relieving myself into the urinal at some airbase or another where "zaps" of Hanoi Jane's face had been applied. To whom it may concern: I was a civilian economic development advisor in Viet Nam, and was captured by the North Vietnamese communists in South Viet Nam in 1968, and held for over 5 years. I spent 27 months in solitary confinement, one year in a cage in Cambodia, and one year in a "black box" in Hanoi. My North Vietnamese captors deliberately poisoned and murdered a female missionary, a nurse in a leprosarium in Ban me Thuot, SouthVietnam, whom I buried in the jungle near the Cambodian border. At one time, I was weighing approximately 90 lbs. (My normal weight is 170 lbs.) We were Jane Fonda's "war criminals." When Jane Fonda was in Hanoi, I was asked by the camp communist political officer if I would be willing to meet with Jane Fonda. I said yes, for I would like to tell her about the real treatment we POWs were receiving, which was far different from the treatment purported by the North Vietnamese, and parroted by Jane Fonda, as "humane and lenient." Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky floor on my knees with outstretched arms with a piece of steel placed on my hands, and beaten with a bamboo cane every time my arms dipped. I had the opportunity to meet with Jane Fonda for a couple of hours after I was released. I asked her if she would be willing to debate me on TV. She did not answer me, her former husband, Tom Hayden, answered for her. She was mind controlled by her husband. This does not exemplify someone who should be honored as "100 Years of Great Women." After I was released, I was asked what I thought of Jane Fonda and the anti-war movement. I said that I held Joan Baez's husband in very high regard, for he thought the war was wrong, burned his draft card and went to prison in protest. If the other anti-war protesters took this same route, it would have brought our judicial system to a halt and ended the war much earlier, and there wouldn't be as many on that somber black granite wall called the Vietnam Memorial. This is democracy. This is the American way. Jane Fonda, on the other hand, chose to be a traitor, and went to Hanoi, wore their uniform, propagandized for the communists, and urged American soldiers to desert. As we were being tortured, and some of the POWs murdered, she called us liars. After her heroes-the North Vietnamese communists-took over South Vietnam, they systematically murdered 80,000 South Vietnamese political prisoners. May their souls rest on her head forever. Shame! Shame! ( History is a heavy sword in the hands of those who refuse to forget it. Think of this the next time you see Ms. Fonda-Turner at a Braves game). Please take the time to read and forward to as many people as you possibly can. It will eventually end up on her computer and she needs to know that "we will never forget". Lest we forget..."100 years of great women" Jane Fonda should never be considered.

My boyfriend is a Navy Vietnam Veteran, age 51. In the past few years, I have watched as his health deteriotes. He was accepted for Social Security Disablity last year for severe athritus, PTSD, and depression. In the past year, he has experienced mysterious blood losses, which has required 3 blood transfusions. He has never found out the cause, but has had many test ran. Recently he was told he has a liver disorder. Could any of this illness be related to Agent Orange. I have tried to find out diseases caused by this toxin, but when it comes to the liver, it is mentioned briefly. Any ideas on where I might find information? Do any of you have similar health problems which may be connected to the war and Agent Orange. I would love to hear from you. Thanks and may God bless you all!

I would like to ask that people visit the web page at the link below. The phony "Doctor" shown on the page (currently the third person listed) has been practicing law in Houston and surrounding areas for about four years...and since April of 1999 he has been doing it illegally with a revoked license. He appears in court wearing a Navy Cross lapel pin and claims to have been wounded, that he was a Navy SEAL and a combat medic and that he is dying of liver cancer as a result of exposure to Agent Orange. All of these claims are false. He has been made aware of his exposure yet he continues to insist that his military "history" is as he claims when talking to friends/clients/acquaintances. When speaking to anyone who could cause legal action to be brought against him, he claims that he has NEVER misrepresented himself as a veteran. With the approach of Veterans' Day 1999, the long overdue apology from this man becomes more significant. It is hoped that others viewing this web page will step forward and validate the position that he has indeed claimed military status he is not entitled to. If anyone with information of this sort will contact me at the e-mail address shown, it will be forwarded to those who will use it to try to get the "Doctor" to make the public apology he owes to those whose courage he has stolen. Thank You. The URL for the web page is: http://www.geocities.com/Pentagon/Barracks/1299/Wannabes.html

I knew he had been army at the beginning of his career, but I thought this included Nam time. Well, I went back through the records he left, and turns out he was already Air Force, serving in the 620th TCS as a Communications Operations Specialist, 67-68. I sure hope this helps to find someone who may have a few memories to share with me, his daughter, since I miss him so much and knew so little about the time before I was born and what he was like.

America has lost another hero. Last Saturday, October 16, 1999, Chief Boatswain's Mate James E. Williams, United States Navy, Retired, was laid to rest in the Florence National Cemetery in Florence, SC. He was 68 years old. Chief Williams was born on June 13, 1930 in Rock Hill, SC. He enlisted in the US Navy in 1946 at age 16 and retired from the US Navy in 1967 after 21 years service, returning to South Carolina where he continued his service to America as US Marshall for the District of South Carolina. During his career, Chief Williams received many awards for gallantry, including the Congressional Medal of Honor. In fact, Chief Williams earned so many awards that he became known as "US Navy's most decorated enlisted man." In addition to the Congressional Medal of Honor, Chief Williams was also awarded the Navy Cross, two Silver Stars, the Legion of Merit with Combat V, two Navy and Marine Corps Medals, three Bronze Stars with Combat V, three Purple Hearts and two Navy Commendation Medals with Combat V. The citations of Chief Williams' CMH and Navy Cross can be found at: http://www.pbr-fva.org/williams.html http://www.pbr-fva.org/williams1.html Eternal glory to BMC James E. Williams, USN.

This was e mailed to me .I am not a veteran,but I thought you would find this interesting. PLEASE FORWARD TOO MANY GOOD MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES SUFFERED BECAUSE OF THIS WOMEN! << Subject: Hanoi Jane to be honored? I don't usually get cranked up over these things, but this is an exception. Read the stories below and send this to as many people as you can think of. Maybe if it goes around the world, it will have some effect. Looks like Hanoi Jane may be honored as one of the "100 Women of the Century". JANE FONDA remember? Unfortunately many have forgotten and still countless others have never known how Ms. Fonda betrayed not only the idea of our "country" but the men who served and sacrificed during Vietnam. There are few things I have strong visceral reactions to, but Jane Fonda's participation in what I believe to be blatant treason, is one of them. Part of my conviction comes from exposure to those who suffered her attentions. The first part of this is from an F-4E pilot. The pilot's name is Jerry Driscoll, a River Rat. In 1978, the Commandant of the USAF Survival School was a former POW in Ho Lo Prison-the "Hanoi Hilton". Dragged from a stinking cesspit of a cell, cleaned, fed, and dressed in clean PJs, he was ordered to describe for a visiting American "Peace Activist" the "lenient and humane treatment" he'd received. He spat at Ms. Fonda, was clubbed, and dragged away. During the subsequent beating, he fell forward upon the camp Commandant's feet, accidentally pulling the man's shoe off-which sent that officer berserk. In '78, the AF Col still suffered from double vision (which permanently ended his flying days) from the Vietnamese Col's frenzied application of wooden baton. From 1983-85, Col Larry Carrigan was the 347FW/DO (F-4Es). He spent 6 years in the "Hilton"-the first three of which he was "missing in action". His wife lived on faith that he was still alive. His group, too, got the cleaned/fed/clothed routine in preparation for a "peace delegation" visit. They, however, had time and devised a plan to get word to the world that they still survived. Each man secreted a tiny piece of paper, with his SSN on it, in the palm of his hand. When paraded before Ms. Fonda and a cameraman, she walked the line, shaking each man's hand and asking little encouraging snippets like: "Aren't you sorry you bombed babies?" and "Are you grateful for the humane treatment from your benevolent captors?" Believing this HAD to be an act, they each palmed her their sliver of paper. She took them all without missing a beat. At the end of the line and once the camera stopped rolling, to the shocked disbelief of the POWs, she turned to the officer in charge...and handed him the little pile. Three men died from the subsequent beatings. Col Carrigan was almost number four. For years after their release, a group of determined former POWs Including Col Carrigan, tried to bring Ms. Fonda and others up on charges of treason. I don't know that they used it, but the charge of "Negligent Homicide due to Depraved Indifference" would also seem appropriate. Her obvious "granting of aid and comfort to the enemy", alone, should've been sufficient for the treason count. However, to date, Jane Fonda has never been formally charged with anything and continues to enjoy the privileged life of the rich and famous. I, personally, think that this is shame on us, the American Citizenry. Part of our shortfall is ignorance: most don't know such actions ever took place. Thought you might appreciate the knowledge. Most of you've probably already seen this by now... only addition I might add to these sentiments is to remember the satisfaction of relieving myself into the urinal at some airbase or another where "zaps" of Hanoi Jane's face had been applied. To whom it may concern: I was a civilian economic development advisor in Viet Nam, and was captured by the North Vietnamese communists in South Viet Nam in 1968, and held for over 5 years. I spent 27 months in solitary confinement, one year in a cage in Cambodia, and one year in a "black box" in Hanoi. My North Vietnamese captors deliberately poisoned and murdered a female missionary, a nurse in a leprosarium in Ban me Thuot, SouthVietnam, whom I buried in the jungle near the Cambodian border. At one time, I was weighing approximately 90 lbs. (My normal weight is 170 lbs.) We were Jane Fonda's "war criminals." When Jane Fonda was in Hanoi, I was asked by the camp communist political officer if I would be willing to meet with Jane Fonda. I said yes, for I would like to tell her about the real treatment we POWs were receiving, which was far different from the treatment purported by the North Vietnamese, and parroted by Jane Fonda, as "humane and lenient." Because of this, I spent three days on a rocky floor on my knees with outstretched arms with a piece of steel placed on my hands, and beaten with a bamboo cane every time my arms dipped. I had the opportunity to meet with Jane Fonda for a couple of hours after I was released. I asked her if she would be willing to debate me on TV. She did not answer me, her former husband, Tom Hayden, answered for her. She was mind controlled by her husband. This does not exemplify someone who should be honored as "100 Years of Great Women." After I was released, I was asked what I thought of Jane Fonda and the anti-war movement. I said that I held Joan Baez's husband in very high regard, for he thought the war was wrong, burned his draft card and went to prison in protest. If the other anti-war protesters took this same route, it would have brought our judicial system to a halt and ended the war much earlier, and there wouldn't be as many on that somber black granite wall called the Vietnam Memorial. This is democracy. This is the American way. Jane Fonda, on the other hand, chose to be a traitor, and went to Hanoi, wore their uniform, propagandized for the communists, and urged American soldiers to desert. As we were being tortured, and some of the POWs murdered, she called us liars. After her heroes-the North Vietnamese communists-took over South Vietnam, they systematically murdered 80,000 South Vietnamese political prisoners. May their souls rest on her head forever. Shame! Shame! ( History is a heavy sword in the hands of those who refuse to forget it. Think of this the next time you see Ms. Fonda-Turner at a Braves game). Please take the time to read and forward to as many people as you possibly can. It will eventually end up on her computer and she needs to know that "we will never forget". Lest we forget..."100 years of great women" Jane Fonda should never be considered. ___________________________________________ >> >>

My wife was born in Vietnam, Pleiku Province, in Oct. 1972. Her older sister was born in 1969. Both by the same man. Their mother worked for the Army as a maid. They are looking for their father, but don't have much to go by. After the communists invaded, all information, pictures, etc. were destroyed for fear of reprisals. Unfortunately, the mother( her name is Le Tu )was arrested anyways and spent a little over 7 years in a communist prison. The three of them moved here in 1986 as sponsored refugees. The mother is not sure if he is alive or dead. The mother's memory is not that good and speaks no English. His name would have been Bill Hall, William Hall something like that. Maybe last name Howe. He would have been stationed in or near the province of Pleiku during the years of 68-72. He was a medical corpman, medical evac, combat medic, or something. Definitely part of a mobile medical unit on helicopters. The last she remembers of him is that he was injured during a crash. Did not know if he survived or not. Probably was shipped off to a hospital, maybe. Unfortunately that's all I have to go on. It's a shot in the dark, but maybe I'll get lucky and you are him or maybe know of someone who might be. He is survived by Le Tu ( mother) two daughters Thuy (30yrs old.) and Thu (26 yrs. old) my wife and two beautiful Grandaughters Jennifer(8)and Kimberly(3) and a proud son-in law who is currently a member of the Army.

He isn’t even sure that Kenny made it home. The “Kenny” I am looking for is from South Carolina, and was a US Marine in Camp Lejuene, N.C in 1967. That is where Riley met Kenny. From there, they were both sent to Vietnam. Kenny was a Marine 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines, in Mike Company. I would appreciate any information you could offer. Thanks.

I would like any thoughts about how counselors at the Vet centers can futher help Veterans, especially those with PTSD, as well as thier families. I have been selected for a 90 day temp position at the Princeton, WV. Vet center. I will be leading three PTSD groups, two are comprised of Vietnam Veterans and one is comprised of thier significant others. I want to do the best I can for them but also realize that as a temp, my mission will be mostly to keep the group alive and stable during this transition of counselors. I may be eligible for a full time position in the future as well. My history working with Vets is as follows: I am an 8 yr Navy Vet, my Wife is a 4 yr Navy Vet, I have worked as a workstudy at the Vet Center, the Veterans Upward Bound at Bluefield State College, and the VAMC in Beckly, WV. My Father was in the Navy, and my step Father was in many spec ops in the military, including the Green Beret. He was in WWII and Korea. He also has the belief the the SS have been keeping him under a close watch over many years. My step Father had alot to do with my felling toward Veterans, especially those who have unresolved war related issues which continue to affect thier lives negatively. I live in a rural area in WV, and when I first moved here about 7 yrs ago my nieghbor was a Vietnam Vet. I learned alot from him, both from what he told me and by seeing him go through times in which he was not himself, I could go on but he has passed away and ut of respect I will not. Also I think he would not want these things spashed all over the net. He had a big heart, and that is what should be remembered about him. I guess I've said too much already, please feel free to contact me with any advice on the subject of Vietnam Vets with PTSD, especially from you all who know it personally. Thanks alot, Billy

My name is Karen and I have been searching for my fathers family. His name was Frank Miles and he died in 1974 while he was living in Virgina. I was only 3 years old when he died and I never knew about him until I was 15 years old. My mother remarried and her new husband adopted me. She has forgotten almost all info regarding my father. I do know that he served in Vietnam and he was there in late 1970. I believe that the name of his squardon was the Jolly Green Giants. He was an airpiolt, which means that he worked on the planes. He also worked on the Baby Huey's, which I believe were a new heilcopter. I am looking for anyone who knew him and might have any info about him. I never knew him and I would like to honor him by making a web page about him and his service time. Please if you knew him please email me at [email protected] I have been searching for his family for about 5 years now and I haven't gotten very far at all.

The San Diego Zoo is looking for a name for the baby Giant Panda born recently. I submitted "Gung Ho," and they say they like it but want to hear from the community before it is submitted to a vote. I think this is a great name for this marvelous new creature because (1) in Chinese, it means to work together and that is what we are doing, with the Chinese people in preserving this rare breed; (2) it is a well-known, catchy phrase, reminiscent of World War II, but still in common usuage; (3) San Diego is home to about a jillion Marines who would certainly be thrilled and proud if this name were chosen. Please, anyone, send an e-mail to: [email protected] - suggesting that the new Panda baby be named Gung Ho. A good response from everyone will give every serviceman in America a big boost!! Thanks.

Searching for Irish-born Vietnam Veterans If you served in Vietnam, and were born anywhere on the island of Ireland (including Northern Ireland), please add your name, rank, outfit details, date(s) of service, date/location born in Ireland, and any other details you feel comfortable sharing, to a database which is (very slowly) being compiled. Irish Women Veterans especially sought as there is absolutely no official record you ever existed. Information on Irish-born male veterans is very sketchy, but at least we know you existed as, (to date), I have confirmation that 20 were KIA (serving with both the US and Australian Forces). Official US figure for Irish-born KIA is 1 (one). Who am I? I was instigator, and Irish Tour Co-ordinator, of the recent Tour of Ireland (April/May 99), of the travelling half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, to recognise and honour the Irish-born killed in Vietnam. This tour brought families together for the first time, as the majority believed for 30 years they were the sole Irish family to have lost a son in the war. In May, I flew to the US and took part in Run For The Wall, the ride from LA to DC to highlight POW/MIA issues. Here in Ireland I am in contact with a number of Irish-born Viet Vets from both the US and Australian military, and I will be in DC Veterans Day at wreath-laying at The Wall. Sometime in the future, if there is enough support, we would like to see a proper Memorial in Ireland to recognise and honour all who served, and all who fell in Vietnam. Any information on 8 detailed below, which may be e-mailed ([email protected]), snailed (Declan P. Hughes, Top Floor, Capel Chambers, 119 Capel Street, Dublin 1, Republic of Ireland), or faxed (Dublin, Ireland 87 22 371) greatly appreciated. Thank you. Declan.

Hello. My name is Chrissy Ludlum and I am involved in the theatre arts department at my school. Recently, the women in the department have been put to the task of putting on a riveting drama entitled "A Piece of My Heart", which is about 6 women's real-life accounts of their service in Vietnam. Through the course of the show, they realize how precious life and death are. At the end of the show, they meet at The Wall to recount their memories, many of which haunt them and forever change their lives. My fellow cast and I are trying to dig deeper into our characters thoughts and feelings but we are really trying to find information--life-based information. If you have any stories, letters, pictures, poems, etc., I would greatly appreciate your assistance in this process. Thank you for your time. -Chrissy Ludlum

UNITED VETERANS FOR THE RESTORATION OF MILITARY FACILITIES c/o 106 Milton Street Brooklyn, NY 11222 Contact: Steve Adams Co-Chair Telephone: 718-349-3477 emai: [email protected] United Veterans For The Restoration of Military Facilities is an organization of veterans, veteran organizations and non-veterans who are working to preserve as National Landmarks and restore the former "Officers Quarters" at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The former officers quarters consist of ten (10) houses built between 1864 - 1900 which housed Naval Officers assigned to the yard until it was decommissioned in 1965. Our proposal consists of restoring these houses and reusing them in several ways including military museums, a veterans benefit/vocational center, a visitors center, meeting facilities for various veteran and community organizations, etc. We would also like to restore and rehabilitate the "parade" grounds for use by veterans for memorial and veterans day celebrations. We also propose the creation of a "Green way" (Park) to encompass the area surrounding the houses as well as a memorial garden. Today, these houses are in a serious state of disrepair, due in large part to the many years of neglect on the part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers who are currently responsible for their care and maintenance. None the less, we believe that through a partnership with City, State, Federal and Private funding, these houses can be restored, reused and returned to their rightful owners, the veterans of the United States Armed Forces and to the community. As such, we are asking you to support these efforts to restore and rehabilitate these historic houses by participating and attending our September 4, 1999 Parade and Flag Raising Ceremony. The parade will commence in front of Brooklyn Borough Hall at 10:00 a.m. and follow a pre-arranged route. The parade will conclude at the Brooklyn Navy Yard (Flushing Avenue & Navy Street) where we will have a Flag Raising ceremony. Very truly yours, Steve Adams Co-Chair

I am writing this in respect to my Uncle's military service in Vietnam. During his service with the United States Armed Forces, he encountered and worked with a group of Vietnamese known as Montagnard, or "Mountain Guards." He has recently learned that a significant number of them have traveled to the United States and formed a settlement somewhere in Virginia. He is extremely interested in their whereabouts and their life here in the United States. If you have access to any such information, I would greatly appreciate any you could pass on to me in respect to the Montagnard, and there whereabouts in Virginia or anywhere else they may be located in the United States. Thank you for your time.

I am a one woman production company, currently looking to interview female Veterans from Vietnam for a Documentary entitled "The Girls Next Door; The Women Who Served Vietnam." I know that this is a very sensitive subject to discuss with a stranger. However, my soul purpose for engaging with this project is not self serving. I simply want to bring a passionate attention to a group of women whose contributions, I believe, have been under minded and overlooked. I truly want to chronicle the strength and personal integrity of female Veterans from Vietnam. My mom is a Veteran from Pleiku 68'- 69' and she has inspired and encouraged me to see this Documentary fruition. Any information that anyone is willing to share will be respected and appreciated. I hope someone out there can help me.

Looking for a Ronald F. Sherry,originally from Detroit,Mi.,we were pen pals in 1967-1968,however all of my letters were destroyed in a fire..and the best my search has done is that he is not on the wall or listed as M.I.A....however, I believe that the last letter from him was before Christmas 1967...and he never wrote after that, I knew he was going out on the front lines...my concern and prayers for him have never ceased...His family only consisted of his mom, who I believe was named Grace, and she lived in Detroit. It's possible he was in Da Nang, but I can't remember if he was Army or Marine. I have called around the Detroit area thru the years but to no avail...Hoping someone see's this that may have known or served with him................God Bless, Deb

He was on tour there since 073168. He's on the Wall and I really would like to know what happened to him. I am expecting a child and have nothing to tell my child of my family's history. I have discovered that his MOS was 11B10. I don't know what that is but that was it. He was 19 and enlisted from Juana Diaz, PR. I have some other info. that may be helpful. Although, I can't interpret it. CAS1: A3, CAS2: Z, CAS3: 7, BODY: --, CTRY: VS, PROV: 30, LSVC: 00. His DOB is 042149. I am not hoping for the world, just a little help locating my family.

I'm also looking for bugle calls (revilee, taps, call to formation, cavalry charge, etc). I checked out a tape of bugle calls from the library and it was 4 times too slow. I would be willing to pay reasonable charges for shipping and duplicating. These are for CAP & JROTC cadets I have this summer. Any help would be appreciated.

June 9, 1999 Kenneth J. Clark Department of Veterans Affairs Health Eligibility Center 1644 Tullie Circle N.E. Atlanta, GA 30329-2303 RE: Letter dated May 23,1999 (742/002) Dear Mr. Clark, A very unbelievable letter, Mr. Clark. The first sentence welcomes my enrollment in the VA health care system, Priority Group 7. However, one paragraph later you inform me to retain any health insurance I might have because you don¹t know if Priority Group 7 will be funded during the next fiscal year (Oct. 1, 1999 - Sept. 30, 2000). Although you are only the ³messenger,² I find the timing (a week before Memorial Day observances) and content of your form letter contemptuous and disrespectful. Certainly, we both know the reason for increased needs for VA services are because of the flagrant and voluminous cutbacks in health care benefits and their increased costs to the workforces throughout the U.S. I don¹t have a health insurance plan to maintain. Like many other veterans, this is the reason I enrolled in the VA health care system. Health care benefits and other VA benefits were promoted and promised to veterans when I was in the Army. I can remember the hundreds of times I was reminded by officers and non-commissioned officers about the numerous benefits we were ³guaranteed for life for serving our country.² Proposals to eliminate funding for this Priority Group makes liars out of generals, colonels, captains, etc. who made those promises to us during our enlistment. They were (are) official military liaisons of the government. There are some serious ethical problems here. Significant numbers of people have fulfilled obligations of ³serving the country.² For me, it was being drafted into the Army for two years. Obviously, since the elimination of the draft, millions of people no longer are required to fulfill this former government mandate. Therefore, I assume they do not receive VA benefits. Yet, I, along with other veterans in Priority Group 7 who did ³serve our country² are now being considered for elimination due to ³non-funding.² Yes, this is a grave ethical problem for a country that considers itself a nation of integrity and fairness for all; especially with its obligations and promises to its veterans. After eliminating funding for Priority Group 7, what Priority Group is next on the hit list? What will be the broken promises twenty or thirty years from now for benefits to troops now involved in the war in Yugoslavia? Congress recently added $8 billion dollars to an original Pentagon request of $8 billion dollars for the war against Yugoslavia. Why didn¹t they use this ³extra² money (our tax dollars) for funding veterans in Priority Group 7? It¹s appalling that members of Congress can be anxious to over-finance war spending; while at the same time propose eliminating the funding of health benefits for veterans. Adding more insult to injury, today¹s newspaper (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel; 6-9-99) reported the U.S. Senate has backed a ³plan to lease business jets for Pentagon brass.² This preposterous waste of tax dollars will cost $500 million dollars for 10 years. In addition, the newspaper reports the Pentagon spending bill for the fiscal year that begins October 1, 1999, (the same fiscal year of the proposal to not fund health care for Priority Group 7) is ³$1.4 billion higher than the budget submitted by President Clinton.² These extravagant displays of abundant spending at the expense of health benefits for veterans adds to the serious ethical problems of a country¹s civility, trust and honor to its commitments to veterans. If you have input determining Priority Group 7¹s funding for the following fiscal year - as explained in your letter - I urge your recommendation to continue and improve this Group¹s health benefits, along with the health benefits of all the other Priority Groups in our VA health benefit plans. We served our country. This anti-veteran proposal should not even be a topic for VA consideration. Sincerely, Daniel Pryzbyla Enc: Clark letter, 5/23/99 cc: Sen. Kohl Sen. Feingold Rep. Barrett American Legion

Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei - Monday, June 07, 1999 at 06:26:49 (EDT)

My dad was on Monkey Mountain, and I have a slide of his that said it was looking across some water over at Da Nang (sp). He was in communications, and I have several pics and slides from Monkey Mountain, to include the theater they built themselves. I don't know much else except he was Army, and it was 66-67. I was 1 and 2 years old when he was there, and he told me a story about how after he returned, I put a pail over his face when he was sleeping on the couch, and he'd been dreaming that a Cong was putting a knife to his throat. I guess he smacked me across the room right about then, and woke up. He said I wasn't hurt, but my pride sure was! The only other story he would tell that I remember was of being on the mountain, and the day after they relocated, it was blasted away. I am basically looking for anyone else willing to share stories from there, if anyone is still out there who knew my dad, Richard L. Sheldon. He wouldn't talk about it much, but he did say last year that he believed in aliens and didn't believe in God, and that Vietnam was why. That was several months before the end of his third marriage, and his suicide in Vegas on 2 October 1999, my brother's birthday. I would like to get some insight as to what his mind was all about, and if anyone could tell me anything about that time period, it would be so kind. He had just been diagnosed with adult-onset diabetes and had an angioplasty a few years ago, but any other ailments were unknown to me, so I don't think he had any "military related" diseases, but I do think his mind was never quite, shall we say, at rest. Also, just a bit of trivia, he switched to AF soon after Vietnam, and retired with over 20 years of service, in a command post position. Thank you.

I was writing to 27 guys during their tours in Nam & actually met 5 when they came home. Would love to hear from anyone who thinks they may have been one of my "pen pals". I truly hope I was in some small way a help to them. This "time" of our lives has special meaning for me & I am just now thinking it may be because of this.

I'm writing in hopes to find men the knew and served with my brother, Fred McConnell (MAC). The only information I have about his service at this time is that he served in the USMC as a PHOTO IMAGING INTELLEGENCE SERGENT (Marble Mountain) 1968-69. I'm sure his service was longer but what unit I'm not sure of. The main point of this memo is to inform any of those that knew of or served with my brother is that he passed away on May 10, 1999 of an Agent Orange related cancer of the soft pallet. I can tell all of you that he was and always will be a true Marine. Several of you contacted my brother prior to his passing and I wish to thank all of you. Please feel free to contact me with any information you may have about my brother. He was 18 years older than me and I didn't have the opportunity to know my brother as I should have. I loved him none the less. God Bless all of you!!!

I'm hoping someone out there can help me. For several years I have been wearing a POW-MIA bracelet bearing the name of ATC Roland R. Pineau, presumably killed in a E1B crash while serving with the USS Oriskany, 10-8-67. This past week I officially "adopted" him through Operation Just Cause and am in the process of creating a tribute page to him on my personal homepage. I've been in contact with a couple of men from the Oriskany, who did not know Roland, but sent me copies of his squadron's group photo from the '67 cruise book and with his sister, who gave me a couple of home photos and shared her memories of him with me. I'm now trying to find someone who knew him from his 21 years in the Navy, especially from his time in Nam. I want to get to know the man he was. I want him to be more than just a name to me and to those who view my homepage. Any assistance anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps you may already be aware of a new promotional material currently in use by the White Castle hamburger chain. If not, I'll take a minute to describe it. An extra-large plastic drinking cup is painted like a comic book with a story of "True White Castle Crave Tales". The text is as follows: "June 1970. When I graduated from high school, they told me I would be going places. I had no idea it would be deep in the jungles of 'Nam. While there, I was lucky to get a hearty ration of White Castle hamburgers from my loved ones back home. I took them on missions deep in the bush, and shared them with the other guys in my platoon. Little did we know it, but the delicious smell caught the attention of two enemy soldiers. They were armed with AK-47s, while all we had were a dozen burgers. We offered to share our lunch with them and for a few moments the war came to an end. To this day, the smell of a White Castle burger makes me happy to be alive." The artists are listed as Gordon Montana and S. Jordan, UT. It's copyrighted 1999 by White Castle System Inc. My wife and I about fell over when we finally looked at what was on this cup. It seems surreal. I thought someone active in a Vietnam Veterans group would be interested in such a design. To contact White Castle on the web go to: http://www.whitecastle.com/contact.html Thanks for your time. Sincerely, SW

I am looking for anyone or any information about my uncle: Lt. Michael Leo Nathe who was killed in Vietnam in July, 1968. The government gave our family very little information about his death and what truly happened. We only know that he was on a search and destroy mission when his bunker was hit by a morter. He apparently lived for about twelve hours after that, and was awarded a bronze and silver star. If you have any information, or in you knew him, we'd appreciate hearing from you.

areas that the United States still claims servicemen were never sent. He was treated with radiation therapy in his throat in Spain in 1985 when he was diagnosed with throat Cancer. Because of this treatment, he was able to live until June of 1997. His quality of life was miserable & I watched a Green B with an incredible build at 240lbs dwindle to 98lbs before he died. He told me countless stories of his tour in Vietnam, & I specifically asked him about Agent Orange. He stated that the chemical was dropped directly over his team on several occasions since they were on classified missions. He still felt that he had a duty to protect his government & refused to ever pursue any inquiry to any other members of his troop who might also be ill or to report this illness to any federal agency. He often worked communications in Vietnam & took pictures & several reels of film of his division in Cambodia & Vietnam. He also gave me several boxes of photos. I do not know what to do with any of this, but feel that I have an obligation to the millions of men who served our nation to turn these over for review. Can you please direct me to the best place to do this. I do not want to disclose anything that I should not, but I have not viewed these films & quite frankly have been afraid to because of the possible horrors contained therein. My father claimed that this was a chronology of his tour & the team that he worked alongside. Thank you for your help. Dennise

THE BROOKLYN NAVY YARD FOUNDERS ASSOCIATION, INC. 187 Myrtle Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11201 Tel: (718) 625-1533 President Mr. Ed Carter Vice-President Louis Castro Treasurer Nathan Cooper Secretary Alex Nojovitz Contact Person: Steve Adams Telephone Number: (718) 349-3477 Bernadette Castro New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation The Governor Nelson A. Rockefeller Empire State Plaza Agency Building 1 Albany, New York 12238 Re: Brooklyn Navy Yard - Officers Quarters Buildings A - L Dear Ms. Castro: The Brooklyn Navy Yard Founders Association was founded by myself and several other veterans as a means to preserve the rich history and historical significance of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. I have been asked by several local Veterans Organizations to contact various Veterans Organizations throughout Brooklyn, as well as their national headquarters regarding a seven and one half (7.5) acre parcel of land at the Brooklyn Navy Yard known as the "Officers Residences". These buildings were erected between 1864 and 1901. From the time that they were built until the closure of the Brooklyn Navy, these buildings housed many of the ‘Yards' officers and their families. In addition to housing quarters, there was also tennis courts and a parade ground. Today, each building is designated as a State and Federal Landmark. Although they are currently landmarks, they are in a dilapidated condition due to many years of neglect, lack of funding and a general disinterest on the part of the B.N.Y.D.C. These buildings are now under the control of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (B.N.Y.D.C.) In 1995 the New York City Economic Development Corporation with the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation commissioned Ms. Roberta Washington, a New York City Architect to conduct a Preliminary Case Report regarding these buildings identified as buildings A-L. This report upon completion was then submitted to the NYS office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation for consideration. The purported purpose of this report was to identify potential future uses for these buildings, if any. Included in this report was a cost analysis estimating the cost of rehabilitating these buildings. The report estimates that it would cost approximately 15 - 20 million dollars to rehabilitate all ten buildings. As you may know, the Brooklyn Navy Yard was established in 1801 by order of the federal government. It was the site for the construction of Robert Fulton's steam frigate, the Fulton launched in 1815 as well as other historic vessels. In addition, the Navy Yard was also the location of the US Naval Lyceum, organized in 1933, which maintained a reading room, library, and museum. During World Wars I and II, the Yard was a disembarking area for troops going over seas. During the 1970's and 1980's part of the Yard for used for recruiting young men in various branches of the Armed Forces. Today, the Yard is operated by the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation housing many small and medium sized manufacturing and commercial businesses. The Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation has been very vague regarding its intentions for these former "Officers Quarters" and rumors abound. One disturbing rumor is that they would like to have these National and State Historic Landmarks removed from the registry and subsequently demolished, using the "then" vacant land to build a "Super-store" possibly a large Supermarket or other large Box type Super-store. Although current law requires a public review of any recommendations regarding these landmarks, there are no guarantees. In fact, in the last year or two, Congressional Legislation authorized the conveyance of the Yard and these buildings from the U.S. Department of the Army to the City of New York. To date, the City nor the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation has fully taken over this facility. However, time is short. The purpose of this letter is to request the assistance of Federal, State and City agencies as well as the American Legion and other Veteran's Organizations throughout New York City and in particular from Brooklyn to convince the Department of the Army and the United States Congress to reconsider conveying these landmarks to the City of New York and to assist local veteran organizations to develop alternative plans for rehabilitating and use of these very Historically significant buildings. Several proposals already looked at include: 1. Turning one building each into a military musuem for each branch of the Armed Forces; 2. A Civil War Musuem; 3. Youth Education and Cultural Center; 4. Veteran's Administration medical clinic; 5. Housing facilities for visiting military personnel and dignitaries; 6. Meeting facilities for various Veteran's Organizations and local organizations; 7. Park and Garden. As you can see, there are many possibilities for the use of these building that will preserve their historic significance and should be preserved and rehabilitated. I look forward to your prompt response to my inquiry. Very truly yours, Mr. Ed Carter

I am the daughter of Joe Foy. My Dad served in Vietnam in Aug 1966-Aug 1967 (during his first tour). He told me an interesting story. When he first got to Nam there was a battle on Aug 25, 1966. The general didn't like all the soldiers wearing different color scarves around their necks so he had each soldier put on black scarves. The battle was awful with only 6 men returning out of 108. Practically the whole battalion had to be replaced. After that battle the battalion was renamed (or known as) the "Black Scarf" Battalion, the only one in Vietnam. My father is interested in finding a man named Anderson that came in the group of 100 soldiers sent in to replace the depleted battalion. Anderson was a member of Charlie "C" Company, 1st Battelion, 2nd Brigade, 1st Division, known as C Company 1/2 1st Division. Anderson's MOS was Mess Cook when he arrived in Aug 1966, he was promoted to Mess Sargent by 1967. At the time he lived in Chicago, his parents lived at and ran an Innlocated on a golf course near Chicago. Anderson is a college graduate. My Dad would like to contact Anderson. I told him anything is possible through the Internet. Any help would be appreciated. E-mail me, Betsy, at: [email protected] Thanks.

Urgent!! Immediate reply needed!! Searching for any Vietnam Veteran who has developed blood clotting in the veins that has no other family history of clotting in the veins. Must be in the veins! This has been diagnosed as Factor V mutation of the blood protein. I am searching in order to prove my brother-in-law is not the only Vietnam Veteran who has had a stroke caused by Factor V. We need your help to support our claim that Agent Orange has caused this rare and unusual clotting. Factor V mutation has only been given a name in the last few years. Please share your experiences with a reply to [email protected] as soon as possible. Since posting this elsewhere, I have received confirmation from one other Vet who has had blood clots in the veins with an undiagnosed cause. There must be more of you out there. Help. Time is of the essence for my sister's hearing before the VA Admin. I'll be deeply greatful for any help you can give. Thanks, Meg

I had the fortunate opportunity to meet Roy Benavedez, Congressional Medal of Honor Recepiant while I was stationed in New Jersey in the Navy. It will be a meeting I will never forget. One of my dearest friends, who has also passed on was a Vietnam Vet, not only one tour but two. This country has no idea the debt we owe all our vets! I was very proud to say that my friend served in Nam. There are people who care and I am one of them! Please don't feel that you are not remembered, because you are! God Bless Every One of You!

To all veterans and friends of veterans: There has not been a major veterans and friends of veterans rally in Washington DC for veterans rights since after WWI. when they were forcefully ejected by Major Douglas MacArthur and his troops. They were protesting the 1891 legislation which prohibits a veteran with 20 years of service from drawing retirement pay. This law has been on the books for 108 years. House resolution 303 would change this. What about a massive rally in DC on Memorial Day 1999? I beleive this is the only way this mean-spirited Congress will ever get the message. Let me know how you feel about this.

I have been very interested in the Vietnam War since I was only 14, I am now 41. It was a war I knew was wrong even at that young age. I had a person very close to me leave Canada and join the fight over there. Ten years ago he killed a man thinking he was back in the middle of a fire fight. I have spent many years hurting over the treatment of the young men who fought this war and are still fighting it today. I want to wish you all inner peace and hope you can find some strength in the fact that there are people like me who still all these years later, think about you and cared what happened.

I am 22 years old. In History class at the local junior college my teacher started talking about the Vietnam War. He dismissed it as a huge mistake and stated that he was in Europe for three months during the war and when he came back he would have never gone if drafted. It made me sick. I know Vietnam Veterans, one of them a close friend of the family who is in charge of the local VFW. What he did was go over incidence where women and children and unarmed men were killed. While this is part of war he did not do the same for any other war. The class was quiet. I asked him how many American men were killed. He replied he was not sure. I told him he should have RESPECT for the men who gave their lives so people like him could have their opinion during the war. He said he did not have respect but felt sorry. It made me sick and he said this is my opinion. The reason I posted this is to tell any Veteran of any war how PROUD I am, and how PROUD the United States should be that people gave their lives for out flag. My opinion of this teacher is that he just wants to hear himself talk. Thank You for reading this.I hope other young people feel the same.
