Name: Chip Patterson
Date: February 19, 2014 - 03:40 PM (pacific)
My father was an FO with HHC battery, 5th Bn, 27th FA assigned to A Co, 1/327th. Leanard "Pat" Patterson is his name and he was a Staff Sergeant during his time in Vietnam in 1967. I'd love to be able to track down any photos of him, in particular, he tells a story of a news reporter embedded with them that actually has video of him. It wasn't until after he'd returned home to Ft. Knox that he actually saw this video on the news while eating dinner with mom. Love to get my hands on that. Thank you for any help you can provided!

Looking for info and possibly pics of my dads best friend whom I was named after. He was with COBRA co. of the 327th he arrived in country Oct 6th 1968 was KIA Nov 28th 1968 (Thanksgiving Day) in the Thua Thien Providence, at the age of 22. I would like to find out what platoon he was in of Co. C would also like to find out what base he was at, I believe he was out of Camp Eagle but not sure. I'm hoping someone out there may remember him and have photos with him in it. I would love to be able to give his mother and my father pictures of Jim. I know this is a long shot since he was in country such a short time but would appreciate any help from you Screaming Eagles out there.

Thank you for the responses so far. It turns out that John Imrie did get the Silver and Bronze Stars so no further action is necessary on that. His other friends are glad, as am I. It was the bravest thing I saw in the war, the greatest act of self sacrifice. It deserved notice and respect and I am glad our suppositions were wrong. Although I was a direct eyewitness, I was never asked about it. I'm glad to see something was done.

I was in 2d platoon A Co/1st Bn/327th from April to October. Started out as a rifleman ended up as the Platoon RTO, then I joined E Co/20th INF (LRP) (later renamed to C Co Ranger Reg) where I was on LRP team 46.
I saw John Imrie get hit running out to save a wounded man. This was in Chu LAi August 18th, 1967.
I understand he received no medal at all for this. This is an injustice I want to see resolved. I and some others of his friends are interested in getting a medal for him, perhaps a Silver Star.
I would appreciate help from this organization in helping me do it. Anybody interested in pursuing this please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Greetings to all. Just found this site and wanted to correct some information about my brother who served with A 1/327 in '68. Whereas I found the roster listing that is obviously him, he was listed as Jack L. "Spices" instead of Spicer. His hometown was also mistakenly entered as Princeton, IL. It was actually Princeton, IN. The ZIP code and phone number were, however correct. Whoever is in charge of this site, please correct this minor oversight so that others may find his information. It is my sad duty to report that my brother succumbed to cancer on 16 Mar '91. He served proudly as a Police Officer in Southern Indiana for many years before he became ill. If anyone at all remembers my brother, has anecdotes or even photos, I and my family would deeply appreciate it. If it is of any help, one of his best friends was KIA in 'Nam, and his name was John C. Imrie. Sorry to write a book here, but any help would be deeply appreciated. Thank You. email@example.com. Again, many thanks.

This is a follow up to my post of January 27. I am still interested in anyone who may have some memories of SP4 Stephen Feistner. SP4 Feistner served in the 2nd Platoon, A Company, 2nd Battalion, 327th Infantry, 101st Airborne from mid 1966-October, 1967. SP4 Feistner was KIA on October 8, 1967.
I am also trying to contact COL(R) John P. Lawton, Company Commander. The current email, John.firstname.lastname@example.org is bouncing back undelivered.
I can most easily be reached at email@example.com
Thanks to those that have already helped me determine some of the activity that surrounded SP4 Feistner's death. It is very much appreciated.
Thank you all too for the sacrifices you have made during your lives. We live in a dangerous world and your efforts have helped keep us free and safe.

When i first returned from Vietnam spend many years as a addict and useless adult but with the grace of God and the love of a great woman I returned to life.looked for many years and finally found Derle Walter and Jerry Cohen served with them in Tiger Force got to spend some time with them and that helped with many issues.
God Bless the men and women who defend our rights and freedoms.
I was young and didn't know the trust placed in our hands I only hope more people will wake up and defend our way of life and not let this disappear from the earth. the struggle is here and not half way around the world

First of all, I would like to thank each of you for the sacrifices that you have made, both during war and in peacetime. The efforts of your unit and units like yours are not really appreciated as they need to be. So...THANKS.
I am working on some family history that includes SP4 Stephen Feistner. Stephen served in Vietnam, although I am not absolutely certain of the time frame. I understand that he re-enlisted in August, 1967. His date of death was 10-8-67, which would have been the battle that is discussed in the "Radioman" story.
I would be interested in hearing from anyone that might have some personal memories of Stephen. I want to keep him alive in our family's memory. He deserves at least that. If you would like to share, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any thoughts at all would be deeply appreciated. Prior to using anything, I will be sure to run it back past the contributor for their approval.
Thanks for considering this request and thank you for everything you have done.

I'm writing for my dad who was in the 327th GIR that landed on Utah Beach on D Day. He is 92 now. I think he was in Holland and I think he said he missd the Battle of the Bulge because he got to go home on leave when his name was pulled from a hat from someone to get leave. I think he was in from 1942 to 1945. I am trying to get his records from St. Louis so I can verify some of his history. I think he said he was in Co. F, not sure which batallion. Any places I should look for information?
