I just spent the last month (June) in Vietnam. I visited several areas including Tuy Hoa. I was with B Company 2/327 from June-December, 1966. I was able to interview several South Vietnamese Soldiers and civilians who were in the area during the Battle at Trung Luong, June 19th-23rd. I was put in contact with a formed NVA who fought at the Trung Luong Battle as well as the attack on Hill 86 in September 17th 1966. He was a private with the 18th B (PAVN) Regiment. I am the mist of writing my next book about the Trung Luong battle. To my 2/327th colleagues: I have pictures of Trung Luong 1-2-3, Hill 258 and of Hill 86(which is completely overgrown) I will place excerpts of my writing on line for those that are interested. It was quite an experience to speak to an NVA, now retired Captain due to wounds, who was involved in both attacks and has a very good memory of both. One of his comments was about the heavy rain that allowed the sapper unit to come up Hill 86 undetected. 2 companies of the 18th B regiment and 1 Main force Unit (30th from the 302 Pavn Division were involved in the attack, according to his recollection. More later.

In response to David Scherzer's inquiry reagarding Dan Carr, Jessie Sanchez etc. I finally "surfaced" in 1999 (bought a house, put the ruck down). By the way Dave, I do remember you and thankyou for your service, God knows I'da been dead 10 times over had you not had the balls to hump that gun day in and day out!! So Carr found me in 99 by hi tech computer gibbery (probably my service number popped up on the house deed), he invited me out to his house with his wife and 2 children that summer, been flying out there for 7-10 days every summer since. Got a hold of Capt. Piel and he even came out a couple of times, somebody that Dan came "in-country" with (4/69)will be there this year, his first name is Charley. Any hoo, I too have been looking for guys, sometimes I'll pursue it for a couple of months then lose track. Right now I am looking for Terry "Red Ant" Wilson, Bob Hannah etc Lutz, Big Daddy, MacKnight, Angel. I am retired right now (can't believe I've lived this long, it's the longest I have ever lived). Untill I hear from you Dave.

In response to Richard Moffett's entry date 5/23 this year. A unit of the 2/327 (Bravo company)were assigned to riff the hills west of "Camp Eagle" in way early 1969 (can't rememer the date much less the month but I think it was February '69)As we were ascending the highest hill in the area to make our NDP, there were a dozen or more 122 mm rockets launched right over our heads, man that shit was LOUD, everybody intially thought we were dead for a split second before we realized that it was out going stuff. We NDP'ed right there and heard over the horn that one of Eagle's ammo dumps had been hit.At sunup six Huey's came in and airlifted 3rd platoon to the top of the hill, they worked their way down while the rest of the company cut trail up. The NVA fired this things off of bamboo rails and had deedee maued out of the area. Never did hear what ammo dump because that day they airlifted the battalion into the A-Shaw Valley. So Richard, I would have to assume that what we heard as ammo dump being hit was more likely than not the fuel dump that you alluded to in your entry. Welcome home brother!!

I came to this site to try to locate a lost friend, Eddie Dutchie, Cobra Co. 1/327. I'm so happy that you have an address listed for him and I'm hopeful that it is a good listing so I can get in touch with him after all these years. Eddie and I went through Basic, AIT, Jump School and were at Ft. Campbell together until we received our orders for Vietnam. Eddie was sent to the 1/327 and I was sent to A Troop 2/17 Airborne Cav. I did 2 tours with A Troop was wounded in a battle in the A Shau and evacuated home. I soon 1049'd back to the 173d where I volunteered for E 20th LRP which became C Co 75th Inf Ranger. As much as I loved my 101st I kept my jump pay by going to the 173d. - Hopefully I can make commo with Eddie and we can get together and reminisce old times in the Army together. God bless all here.

My father, 1st Lt. Bob Gerber, was in the 327th GIR (Battle of the Rhinleand and Central Europe).
After the war officially ended he stayed on in Bertches Garden and was assigned as the Athletic Director to organize athletic events to occupy the troops who were awaiting return to the states.
Any info or anybody with info on him would be gratefully appreciated. My dad recently died and his 101st airborne ball cap was aside his casket at the funeral. He was also in the 82nd.
His son Bob.
