I am so grateful to have found this site. My daddy passed away last september at 62. I had no idea he was beginning to search for his brothers in the 101st...I found he wrote on this site...
"My name is Marion Bush I served with 1-327 HHC Mortar plt June 1967 - June 1968
I worked as gunner and FDC section (Chief computer) for the 4.2 mortar section, I joined the plt as a PFC left as SGT E5 I am very proud of my service and the Men I served with. " I also found a picture of him here and you don't know how much it means to me. My Daddy was a wonderful man, and excellent soldier and I'd give anything to have him back. God bless you all for your service. Anyone who remembers or fought beside Marion Bush please feel free to contact me -Love

My Dad was, Colbert Negron aka "Little Joe" Negron from NYC. I can't thank you guys enough for posting these pics, it has brought alot of smiles to not only my face but that of my other siblings/relatives. My Dad always spoke about his time in Vietnam, in a sense it brings some comfort to have these photos to remember him by. If there is anyone who served w/ him, please feel free to contact me, would love to hear stories of those who served w/ my Dad. God bless!

Found video shot by an Army film crew that went on the operation to the Fury AO in April, 1971. Go to criticalpast.com and search for A Shau. There is no sound but the film is pretty high quality.""


WOW. What a find. Thanks. That is A co. 1/327th. I was the RTO for 1st platoon. We secured Fury for a 3 day artillery support mission that was going to go on in the Ashau. I remember very well and I recognize the guys that are getting off the birds and the group standing around when the camera pans Left to Right. That was 1st platoon.
I don't ever remember cameras being around at all.
I also have pictures of some of it that completely coincides with some of the video.
Awesome,
Thanks for posting this.

Hello,
My dads name was Don Cisar and he was a Vietnam Veteran...A very proud one at that. He never talked much about it, I can think of only a few stories in all my years. One had to do with Christmas Eve 1970, which was very bad, and another was about how him and the guys used to pull pins on grenades, hold them and see who could get them to blow up in the air. He said they would do that for "fun". Dad has since passed away due to a heart attack. April 23rd 2010. It was kinda coincidental that he left for the Army on April 23rd 1970, forty years to the day. Anyways, my mom, brothers and I were going through some of his things this weekend and came across some of his Vietnam items. I picked out an old "ABU Assassins" Zippo lighter.

Pops, as us and the grandkids, called him was a member of the A Company 1/327th Infantry 101st Airborne Division. He served from '70-71. Some of the guys I know of from his pictures were Allen Libbert, Buck and Drill. Him and Al Libbert have always kept in touch over the years and this year my mom received a very nice memorial book about dad along with pics from their time serving their country.

South Dakota dedicated a Vietnam Vetrans memorial, a few years back, in Pierre. Dad & mom went to the dedication ceremony and even got a ride in a Huey. Mom, being the team player she is (and petrified of heights) was right by dads side in the chopper. That chopper ride was very theraputic for him and it was shortly after that that he told of the Christmas Eve 1970 story. I could not imagine going through that, or what any of you went through.

Thank you to all of you for all of your sacrafices and heroism. I salute you all!!

I love you and miss you Pops."



Topher,

I did not know your dad but I was there when he was and in the same company. As Paul said prior that Christmas Eve 1970 was a very bad day along with Christmas the next day. If you would like to know more about that day feel free to contact me by email or 714-335-4557.
If I saw a picture, then I would maybe remember him.
When we were there, we were almost always out in the jungle in our platoons patroling or on a firebase pulling outer security and really never got to know many of the others except maybe on Eagle Beach when we got to spend a few days there. Of course most of us didn't remember much when we were there.
Good for you to honor your father with his service and thank you for letting us know about our brother going to sit with Jesus.

Today January 24th, 2011 I sat here all day remebering this same day 43 years ago. I was with my "ABU" Brothers in Phuoc Long Province at a place called Song Be. We had walked into a Regimental NVA Bunker complex. All hell broke loose.
Today I sat here remembering our Fallen Brothers:
Jon Grimmett, Fayetteville N.C., John R. Favor, Flint Michigan, George J. Holly III, Las Vegas , Nevada, William W. McClendon Jr., New Orleans, Louisiana, Ernest Patrick Palcic, New York,NY.
I can't recall the names of all our Wounded Brothers , as it has been so Long AGO.
May we never forget the Scarafice they all made all those years ago for all of us.
I also sat here thinking of my Best Friend who was also there with us Jim Grainger "Jungle Jim " who we lost last year in Tucson, Arizona. I missed calling him this year to consule him, as he broke down every January 24 when he would recall his friend Jon Grimmett and loosing him There ,all those years ago.

I know that during those two to three days the NVA had us All pinned down and surrounded that All of us thought that would be our last Firefight in Nam.
We can only thank God that he had Blessed us with Capt. Julius Johnson. Capt. Johnson Saved us from being totally over run and wiped out as an Infantry Company !
I know that last day trapped there I had looked around that morning and I saw the realization on everyone's face that We were not going to Walk out of there. Yet we All had the look of Resolve also on our faces that we were going to go down fighting "TOGETHER". I could see it on every Brothers Face that I could see from my position. They, We had prepared ourselves to meet "OUR DESTINY". We were Ready for the Final Fight, The last Battle of Our Lives.

My Fears were No Longer there , as I looked around at my Brothers. They were washed from me. I knew that I was where I was supposed to be. With who I was supposed to be with. These were My Brothers. We would have Each Others Backs until the Last of us Fell. A calm came over me , and I did not Fear what lay ahead that day.
Capt. Julius Johnson called in everything available to him,Except "BROKEN ARROW" and by some unknown Miracle the NVA ended up hunkered down ,and allowed us to get away to fight Many a More Day ! We carried our dead and wounded Brothers Out, With Us, NO Brother was Left Behind !
We Humped most of that day to hook up with C-Company and the extra man power and fire power they afforded us.
I pray that All of Us that went on to Return Home have never forgotten the Price our Brothers paid there.
I pray We All have lived the kind of life Our Brothers were never afforded !
I pray they All have been with our Lord and Savior for all these years.
I Truly Pray to see them All again someday and hold them all Close Once Again !

ABU/ ATR
We were Young
We were Warriors
We are Brothers, Forever !

Does anyone remember medic Doc Vazquez, he wsa killed in Dok To in June I think it was on the 6th anyway it was the last time I had a true friend. We left him and the trooper he was trying to save. We pulled back to a better position on the next hill. We had to hump down the mountian so they Could carpet bomb the hill. We went back the next day to clean up and recover the bodies. I was the one that put doc in tha body bag. Thats when every thing changed thanks. Wild Bill
