Hello everyone, just checking in after being off the hook for so many years. I was with the 1/327th 101st Abn. 1st Platoon. looking forward to the memorial unveiling at Ft. Campbell. I have been going through letters from Warrant officers, to medics to grunts. All pertaining to the accident 12/24/70 and the Chinook crash in 71. What a time, I can still see and hear it all like yesterday. The stories are filling in things I never knew or forgot. Nine on my right wounded 12 on the left died. We were young. We were soldiers. We will never forget our brothers.

How many others can remember being part of this training???? Would like to hear your comments on your experience of this Training?? The end of Feb or first of March 1966 Basic training centers across America were backed up !!! Numerous training centers from across the USA sent over 5000 trainees to Ft Campbell, KY from( Ft Leonard Wood, Mo.)where I along w/hundreds of others went for Basic/AIT and Jump School. Ft Lewis, WA. -Ft Dix NJ-Ft Ord, CA -Ft Hood , TX were some of the other Main Training Centers new recruits were shipped from. The old wooden barracks had not been used since after the Korean War as well as the Jump School. They were cleaned up by what few 101st Airborne members left after the Second Brigade was shipped out to Vietnam
The Second Brigade of the 101st was sent to Vietnam late 65 or early 66 . In order to make up one Airborne Brigade for Combat it took most of the 1st and 3rd Brigades as well. What remained of the 101st were sent thru crash courses of Basis training for us (Over 5000). The Training was very effective for building up the 101st ,there was over 3500 of us Basic recruits that went Airborne! 24/7 loud speakers were BLASTING thru out the training center ON AIRBORNE!!! Thru our Basic Training every minute of every day for 8 weeks we could not say or do anything without saying AIRBORNE at the beginning as well as the end the sentence or task.(mainly pushups)!!!
Now we get to A.I.T. and put in the Brick Barracks across the tracks HOME OF THE 101st AIRBORNE! The first week of A.I.T. they started sending hundreds of us thru Jump School !! By the end of 11 weeks we were All Infantry Trained as well Airborne Trained ! Our Trainers were made up of Airborne Rangers thru A.I.T. AND JUMP SCHOOL! It was after my 3rd week in A.I.T. along with hundreds more went thru our 3 week Jump School Training and returned to finish our 5 weeks A.I.T.
It was after all our Basic--A.I.T.--and Jump School That my address changed from (Company B 2/506 training) To 3rd Brigade Company B 2/506 Airborne Infantry Ft Campbell ,Ky
The rest is history when the 1st&3rd Brigades was called to Vietnam in Sept of 1967 , following our 101st Division Commander General Westmoreland where he was put in charge of ALL the Armed Services in Vietnam!
I'm Proud to say AIRBORNE!! It was not on my mind or Hundreds of others being Airborne if it wasn't for the Extensive Training we endured thru Basic Training by all our Instructors being members of the 101st!Airborne Rangers as Instructors in A.I.T. and Jump School finished our Training and become a proud part of the 101st Airborne!!! Fifty years have past with the memories that occurred from that era! Memories that will stay with us for the rest of our Life!!!
AIRBORNE!!! AIRBORNE!!! AIRBORNE!!!
Spc 4 Gary K Clayton 3rd Brigade Company B 2/506 INF Airborne
PS - What us recruits went through would be called brain washing? Back then the Army did what they had to do to fill up the 101st Airborne Division, and what a job they did!!! This made us ALL grow up from a boy to being a man!!!!!

HHC 1/327, Phan Thiet 1966. Does anyone (esp. boat people)remember seeing an Australian trio called the Mackensie Twins. They were accompanied by an older man playing an accordian. They were not young but put on a helluva show that was very bawdy. The stage was outside of a small hanger outside Phan Thiet
