In July 1971 on FSB Binh Dinh my unit (B Btry 2/11) and a platoon from the 327th occupied this bald hill about 3km from Vegal. The unit had their mortar platoon with them and one of the tubes exploded killing several soldiers, two which were leaving the next few days going home. I have pictures of the platoon (before the explosion), and several members of the unit, they flew a Texas Flag above their Fire Direction Center.
If anyone knows of any surviving family members who would like pictures I would consider it an honor to send them the pictures that I have. If its any help we got hit by a Typhoon the night before the incident and it rained like it was going to turn the entire valley into a lake.
I have approximaly 20 pictures of the area around the small fire base, and many of those pictures include the great infantry soldiers from the 327th that provided us security.
I remain, a Redleg, tried and true. But there is nothing like "No Slack". They saved my gun sections bacon, on more than one occasion.
Respectfully, Command Sergeant Major (Retired) H.E. Lewis, Field Artillery.

Today, May 4, is a very important day for approximately 40 of us who started at Camp Crockett through jump school and ended up in Bravo Company 2/327. I would like to pay special tribute to Achoe and Holler and the many others who did not get to come home. Having just had the opportunity to talk to some of the guys I was in Nam with, it made me feel so good. I sincerely hope some day we all get to see each other again.

It has been 42+ years since some of the 2/327 "B" company brothers have had any contact with each other. With the help of the 327 Infantry Web Site, Barry Fox and the Internet, we have reunited 19 of our lost brothers from the 1968 and 1969 time period. Most have been contacted by phone and others by email only. Many of the B co. troops are the survivors of the FB Berchtesgaden attack on June 14,1969, while some others had left country before that horrific morning.
The list of the B Company Brothers are:
Donald Byrnes, Bob "Red" Haufschild, Connie Patton, James DeVries, George Graham, Richard "Zeke" Zielinski, John"Wolfman" Wolfe, Dennis Spohn,
Ron"Chin" Savage, Porter "Rusty" Adams, Dale Grabb, Paul Titus, Dave Romberg, Robert Walker, Thomas Piel, Steve"Mailman" Brogdon, Paul Henson, Bill Flynn,
John "Anything" Bressler
While this list is far from being completed, we will continue the search for any other "B" co. brothers from that time period.
If anyone has information on Richard C. Cheney, Howard E. Sargent, Leon Marshall or any other 2/327 "B" company troops, please forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also want to remember those B Co. brothers who have passed on since we left Viet Nam in 1969, they are:
Pedro Solis, Henry Rael
Several from this group are planning to reunite this June in Crossville, TN, with the 1/327 at Cobra Lake, for our first reunion since we left Viet Nam.
It was and is, my extreme pleasure to serve with each and everyone of these 101st ABN 2/327 "B" Company "No Slack" brothers.
Welcome Home and may God Bless all who served in Viet Nam.
