On the hunt for a 327th,101st ABN glider infantryman named John Connor or John O'Connor. A friend of mine's father was good buddies with him, and they served together during the Bulge. Connor or O'Connor was from the Niagara area New York. I believe they were "C" company. My friend's father would like to find his buddy or his buddy's family if he is already passed. Perhaps a unit roster?
THANKS IN ADVANCE!

2/502 made jumps at Kontum December 1966. Was a Hollywood jump. Can not remember what dates. We jumped with Vietnamese Paratroopers. Remember taking off and hearing the 6 minute warning just as the wheels were off the runway. Jump itself was uneventful. The rice paddies we jumped in were like jumping on concrete. For myself the landing was alright. I do remember the ensuing days winds did pick up and a few people did get injured. "Welcome Home to All"

Name: Patrick "John" Windfelder
Hometown: Quakertown, pa

My Name is P.John Windfelder.I am the nephew of
John,E Windfelder SP5/mos94 Tiger Force Who was attached to the 1/327th from late 67-71.
Johnny was KIA along with 33 other men (Mostly Tigers) Nov 28 1971 in Chinook ch47 (Playtex) Crash.The A/C was heading To or From LZ401?
Some reports say they got Tagged by VNA SAF some say Not.The report I tend to believe is from SAR 501 unit who took 3 days to reach the site (Under Fire) Lead by Mr J.L Hodges Only to find a Heart Braking Site.I would like to Thank The 501 Men for braking in and finding my Uncle John and the others lost that day from the 1/327th. Words cannot Express how grate full I am to the 501 Men!!
Now that the Thank you Bullchet is out of the way I have a few ?? to ask and would like the Truth if at all possible.
1) Did anybody know John Windfelder? His MOS/was a cook as well as Heavy Weapons Spl.Tiger Force
2) Can you be a So called "Cook" and also be a Tiger?
3) Anywhere I can find any pix of Tigers from Late 1971.The Tiger Force page stops at 1970 as for pix. Any pix taking by the investigators that doc the sight? Did the Army take pix as part of the investigation?I see many pix of Military Crashes in Vietnam but none of this crash.Why? Hiding something maybe? I'm sniffing around and so far this don't add-up.I have a hard time believing any thing those Criminals have to say in Washington. For good reason I feel this way.
4) Call me nuts if you like but I would like to make the trip to the A/C crash site. Taking the same walk the 501/sar Lead by a Mr J.L Hodges did.I want to see the site for myself and place a cross in honor of the 34 men who died that day.This is the only way I can come up with to show the respect I have to these 34 men as well as all who served in Vietnam.
With this in mind.
I cannot make a trip like this without some help.I would like to know if there is anyway to pin-point the site? Any maps? Any GPS numbers? Even Loran-c Numbers will do? By Mr Hodges Acct,His unit was dropped in 2 Clicks from the site.That's a long walk under fire but not to bad a walk in peace.I should be able to make contact with the site in half the time they did (My thinking anyway) Other than my ability and others (I do not see that as a problem) is there any reason this is not do-able? Any of your thoughts on this trip would be great.I have tried to locate Mr Hodges about this.He seems to be the only one with Knowledge about this crash, with no luck as of today's date. Anybody got any contact info for him? He posted on this site awhile back and express he was going to make a video concerning this crash. So if its a video the man wants to make I would like to help him make this happen.
There is also one more reason I would like to make this trip happen.
SP5 John Windfelder had 1 child (Jenny) my cuz.She grew up without her Dad.She has no Memories of her dad.Her comments on her dads page rips my guts out to read.It really gives clear insight to how painful this can be on the kids of KIA's.I cant bring her dad back But I CAN bring her something back from were her dad last was. She has nothing and anything from this site would be the center piece of her life and maybe the best gift anybody can give a person like herself. If I can make this happen I'm going to.I cant stand to read her words of pain.She grew up to be a fine lady. She's a medic that works in a small hospital in S.E.PA. SP/5 John would be proud of her.
My connection to SP/5 John is not anything like her's except for the fact my dad (THE KOREAN WAR VET who took copper to his legs in 1959) had changed my name at 2yrs old in honor of him.The same week he got the bad news.SP5/ John lived with my family in So Jersey for awhile. While I was growing up I was always told how much I looked like him. The whole family changed my name for this reason. Dad did the legal part on B/C to make it final.The funny part is as a 3yr old little man I did not now what the hell my name was.But I knew what tone of voice I should respect.As I got older the need to know this man I looked so much alike got more intense.The more I learned about this man,The more honored I was to have his name.Wow Dad named me after a member of the 1/327 Heavy Weapon's/Tiger Force member/Cook.All I can say is that gave this boy growing up one hell of a Big Head.Playing Army was the game I was best at.None Better.Playmates got "No Slack" you could say. My tactics got me in trouble with the old man a few times. All the element was laid out on the lawn do to your tactics, you little sob he would say. Anyway here are a few facts about SP/5 John Edward Windfelder.
1) He was the youngest of 13 kids. My grandmother was 49yrs old when she gave birth to him.49yrs old!!
2) HE was 1/2 Delaware Indian (unami) 1/2 German.
3) His nick-name was "JEW" John Edward Windfelder and had a plate made for the front bumper of his car that read "JEW".So maybe this Nick-Name will ring a bell for some?
I would like to thank you all who spent there time reading my post and please contact me at Farmallpat at Yahoo dot com if you have anything to add or info to my ??'S
