Great site. I can smell burning bamboo and taste the unique taste of the water there. My achilles still hurt so I have that effect going. Very proud I served; collectively we halted the cancer of communisim in that region of the world. We had a window of opportunity, for the blink of time we were just the right age...we took it and served. --Shot in right calf, medic Pate fixed it, did not infect...no lost time since we did not move much just then. A rare time of carrying a rolled up poncho at all, shot through it into the butt...Pate and Lt Eklund pulled it out...don't think any of us enjoyed it. Laughing. Grenade to right side during an assualt; no idea where we were when that thing flipped me, but instantly back to the feet as if carrying a fountain drink and not wanting to spill a bit...another piece of those frags just may be making it to the surface at this very time, and it is minorly exciting after so many decades. Bad deal on a parachute jump (no idea of who to thank for getting me out of that little deployment), and a comma for a few days, then right back to work. No purple hearts, as they were refused, same as I saw other guys do for insignificant wounds. I remember a cigarette lighter we were given just prior to leaving, one of my daughters holds it now, it reads on the face: "America's Finest at Freedoms Frontier". Wow, did I wear out several pairs of boots for that honor. We were tired, right! ---I've had a great life as I hope others have as well...lustfull times, confused times, fortunate and earned...most things once wronged were gotten 'better'. I Cannot complain.

Something I recieved from Fay Chaney, said I should post it on the guestbook for all to see.
I had the honor of taking care of my uncle, my mother's brother until his death at 87 years in 2002. William Wilburforce Daughtry, Petersburg, VA (I believe you have him listed as Daughtery). He was in F Company 327th glider infantry, 101st. He was an amazing man, a man of great integrity. He did not talk a great deal about the war but he did tell me about being a guard when they brought the blindfolded germans to Gen. McAuliffe. He also told me he guarded the tent while the generals planned the invasion of Holland. If there are F company men I might possibly communicate with, I would be greatful to have this opportunity. If I can answer any questions you might have about my uncle I would be happy to do so. I have his medals and patch. I also have a book BASTONE The First Eight Days, Copyright 1946, First Edition published by Washington Journal Press.

Someone who meant a great deal to my older brother and I (both Vietnam Era Navy vets),SP4 Michael Joseph Galbraith,A CO, 1ST BN, 327TH Infranty,101ST ABN DIV, lost his life in Vietnam on 6 June,1966. Michael was my older brothers best friend and like a big brother to me and over the years my brother has done many things to perpetuate his memory. Most recently as we grew older Chuck and I have talked about what we, as fellow veterans, need to do to assure that those who gave all are never forgotten, I have begun to help my brother Chuck out with this effort. You see Michael was an adopted child of friends of the family and was one of our neighbors as we grew up. Both of his adopted parents are long since gone and neither my brother nor I want him to ever be forgotten.I am looking for anyone who has knowledge of how he lost his life on that day perhaps another within his unit or a Medic who saw to his body or aided in his evacuation. You see we only have rumors of friendly fire, a short round, which circulated at his funeral, as the cause of death and would really like to know what actually happened on the day of his demise.I realize that Michael had only been in country since 5 May, 1966 and that he may not have been well known but perhaps someone in this unit can provide us with information. Your assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated.As always, bless you for your service to this great Nation and most assuredly "God Bless America"!
