Lt. Col. Fred Spaulding: This Tom Thomas, your old contact at the River Palms. As we approach memorial day I wanted to thank you for your years of service to our country and making such a significant contribution for freedom. I was sharing your story recently with two Army Vet's and told them how you read my father's war record letter at a function when the speaker did not show up. You made a positive impression. May God Bless you and yours and keep you safe. All the best and kind regards. Tom Thomas

Those that remember June 22 1971. Alpha Co. 1st platoon, 1/327 and the murder of Marshall Miller.
I have been in contact with his cousins in Phoenix.
The person that murdered him is Oscar Martinez. He served approx 20 years in Leavenworth. Not sure how I feel about that. Marshall was my best friend in country and when I went on R&R I talked him into taking over my radio for the platoon leader. If I wasn't able to get anyone I wasn't going to get to go on R&R. That R&R was when I married my wife 40 years ago. I was one day away from returning when Martinez locked and loaded on Marsh over some C-Rats.
I really want to find someone that was there to talk with them to find out exactly what happenend that day. For me and Marsh's family.

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.
