I thought you all would find this interesting.
This is from a contact I made in VN while working on the 866 project.He was in the 196th
I pleasured to read your email this early morning at my small room.
Thanks to your email also. My favorite is opening the internet page after waking up in the morning.
At first I am responding your question about my trip to US in 1975. As you have known that I was in Da nang with my family when NVAs occupied the city in late March 1975. One NVA platoon came to my house with many questions that what I am doing with South Vietnam Government , I told them that I was not working with ARVN , I was just a civilian to work in free jobs for taking care my family but NVA platoon leader did not believe me too much and then he questioned me many other questions to find out about my activities with South Government ... I moved my family back to my old country in DMZ at night time with a rental truck, I left most my stuffs in my plenty house in Da nang...
I lived in a small house in DMZ with my wife and 3 sons , local VC cadres came to take me to the village chief 's house and I had to write down what they wanted me to respond their questions, I think they knew what I worked with ARVN but they didn't say nothing about US forces where I have worked with in the war.
a young VC cadre brought some documents in English and asked me what documents talking about . I was very afraid to tell them that I did not understand too much about those documents because my English was broken . The guy smiled and walking out the houch quickly , I cannot know what will be happened to me next . very worry. They let me for home at 12 O'clock and said that I had to stay home . not leaving there to anywhere without their permissions . I said Ok.
They came to take me back the village chief's house 2 days later and told me that I had to take a reeducations course in couple months near Highway#1. I had to bring food for myself they had nothing for myself and many another guys.
I studied the Communism and worked very hard under sunshine in 3 months.
i was hungry and thirsty and had no cloths , I used the old sand bags as my cloths every day.They let me going home after 3 months in changing the mind but I had to become a farmer to work on the dry field with nothing , my wife and our children got nothing for eat.I understand that our lives will go down to the hell.
we stayed there from April 1975 to September 1979. We escaped DMZ at night time and walking to Dong ha city to catch a bus to Chu lai where I am living now.
They VC local cadres in Chu lai got me much troubles also . they said my past life story is very and very bad because I had worked with US Army to kill Vietnamese and their comrades therefore I couldn't find jobs until today, that is a reason why I didn't leave home for US in 1975. I am getting old.and my wife too , all my children didn;t have much times for their schools so they are not working well , no one can help us caused they are all poor. My US combat friends helped me some times , they sent me money to the bank and I picked them out to buy everything I needed.
You can come here to visit Vietnam , nothing gets you troubles because the Government needs USD from foreign visitors, you will be welcome here however they don't like you just needs your money but they don't make you getting angry
I will answer what your questions , we are friends , nothing can stop our friendships Patrick event Communist security agency.
Will talk with you more .

Rest in Peace Wayne Gaskins
Wayne passed on 10 April 2016. He served in Delta, No Slack, RVN, 1968-69 as an infantryman. Our tours over lapped but we were is separate platoons and we didn't link up until one of the 327th reunions at Crossville, TN, probably 2003 and beyond. He had lost his health but was lovingly cared for by his wife Sierra. They lived on Roan Mountain, TN. I was able to visit them there a few times. a On this 327infantry.org website, Wayne has a poem, "She Didn't Want to Play" and a story "The Train Station". Also on this 327infantry.org site's gallery are two photos of Wayne Gaskins, one with his wife Sierra titled "Thanksgiving" and "NoSlackers" of Yankee Jim Simchera, Wayne Gaskins, and myself, taken in 2011. I knew him to be a good man and fellow airborne infantry friend. RangerTom Carpenter, Delta No Slack, 101st Abn, RVN 1968-69

I was with Co. E 2/327 when then Captain Finnegan was the CO. In January 1970 I was in charge of the FDC for the mortar platoon that was in the CP at FSB Tomahawk. Dennis was a damn good officer. He constantly worked to improve the security of the Firebase. I remember that he was not sure if he was going to stay in the Army. On New Year's eve he broke out a few bottles of booze (the small ones) that you got on the airplane for us to bring in the New Year. So sorry to hear that he paid the ultimate sacrifice. May he rest in peace.

Hello my name is Heather and I am the daughter of a Vietnam Vet. My Dad , Karl Ritter (Anderson, IN.) served in the Amry's 101st Airborne during the years of 1962 - 1965. My Dad never told us kids much about the Army or Vietnam. Dad used to say; that was way before you kids were ever even thought of. My Dad passed away in 2008 of a heart attack at the age of 64. When planning his funeral all we could find of his military past was a copy of his DD 214 which is what we needed for his military funeral. Anyhoot I am curious about what all my Dad did in the Army. What his rank was and meant, (SP-4 ,E-4 (T) , I would also love to meet anyone who served with my Dad. I don't know what all information to include in this message other than the information I've included so far. That's about all I have. I'm hoping someone out there knew him, served with him, maybe has some stories or photos of him. i've included all of my information for anyone who might have information about my Dad. Oh I almost forgot ... according to his DD 214 his last duty was ... CO C 2ND BN 327 INF 1st BDE , 101st ABN DIV.
Thank you for your time and God bless you for your service to our country! Much love & respect to you all !!!

Many of you 101st VN veterans know David O. Williamson (C company, No Slack 1969-1971). He and his family are in need of prayer. Last Sunday evening, David and Vickie's daughter Sarah, was hit by train, killing her seven year old son David and she is in a comma in an Arkansas hospital.

Hello all. I am a huge history buff abd one of my favorite wars to learn about I'd the Vietnam War. My uncle served one year in the Vietnam War before he was tragically killed mere days before his 21st birthday. I have found the military information on him (which company and where he was located at time of death, etc.) and his death. I am looking for anyone who served with him and can tell me more about him and what on in Quang Ngai Province South Vietnam in the years 1966-1967. His name was Thomas Hoeniges, but was often called Moose. Any information would be greatly appreciated considering I never got to meet the man due to the fact I was born 11 years(1988) after he died. I have heard stories from my family, but I am wanting to hear from the men and or women who served with him to help fill in holes and answer questions as to who he was and what happened over there.
Thank you so much in advance for helping a young girl find her family.
If you wish to get ahold of me please use my email. ... if you can not see it is
Thanks again and hope to hear anything at all no matter how small of a detail

My brother Dennis served tours with the 2/327 from July of 66 thru July of 70. He started as a Plt.Ld in the 2.327th and ended as a CO. Dennis was the replacement CO for the Bardstown Kentucky Unit that got overran in the summer of 69.
I was in Vietnam at the time, assigned as an 11B in the 173rd Abn. Thru connections of Dennis from his previous tours, I could pull the strings and get a week to go see Dennis.
I bought a camera at the "Big PX in Danang,for the friend of Dennis's that made it all happen. I messed it up trying to get the film out of the camera and lost all those shots.
Maybe someone from Bardstown remembers my brother, or even me going to visit Dennis.
Dennis got killed on 10/31/72. It was the last day of his 4th tour..His name is at the bottom of the last panel on the Wall in Washington. He had been assigned to a leg unit somewhere in Saigon. His HOR is listed wrong.
