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?

Fulcher succeeded him.I do remember the lightning strike and Dong Ap Bia,we were providing security for that mech unit. Dan Carr has been looking for you.

Looking for RTO Riggs. Say Darrell, I have been looking for an RTO named Riggs. We were thrown together in a very difficult situation that bonded us for life. It was during the Battle of My Phu, Southwest of Tuy Hoa. We were in a stand-off shoot out with seven NVA before I stashed Riggs in a spider hole, and made my way back to the CP to get help. Riggs was nailed twice in the left knee, and in all probability lost his leg. I never saw him after we put him on a gun-ship that came in when no Medi-Vacs were allowed to. I only heard from him (by letter through a Congressman from California) when he exposed the Sgt. who ran out on us during the melee. It's been forty-seven years, and I would sure like to see him again before I DEROS from this earthly life.

I was a medic with 2/327 infantry from '68-'70 mostly Bravo Company. I remember Captain Piel. We did go to Hamburger Hill- Dong Ap Bia in '69 sometime after May, but I see no mention of this in the records at all. I still have the field maps for the record. Anybody remember this? I sure do. We were opcom to an armored group from the 1st Cav. There was a bulldozer knocking everything down on the way. Quite an operation! Left under fire. Hit by lightening near there.

Hey, Welcome home Gary. Yes, 882 was a scary place. I was very glad to learn that you lived. It takes weeks to find out anything when one of our brothers gets dusted off. Merry Christmas to you and ALL the 101st Troops. I wish you could all be home for Christmas. Thanks to all who still serve. God be with you.
