Met former LT. Sheridan at the USO while returning home for R and R, the XO and later CO of A co. during '69 and '70. A pleasant treat to hear where my unit has been and to personally see where it is now. The little taste of first hand unit history just made me want to hear more of the 2-327th's past.

I arrived in Vietnam in Oct 1967, I was assigned to HHB 2/320th FA. (Balls Of The Eagle) I was attached to B 1/327th Inf ( Barbarians)( The Bear was the CO) as the Artillery Recon Sgt, I was working with the FO Dancing Bear Lt Carliges. I don't think his name is spelled right. I was moved to A 1/327th (Assassins)and trained a new FO Lt Hudson. I was then moved to C 1/327th (Cutthroats) as the Artillery FO at the same time when Capt Westbrook took command of C Company,I was the FO till I was WIA on the 25 Feb 1968 and was sent to Japan.

I served proudly in the Medical Platoon of the 2nd/327th "No Slack" Battalion from 1992-1996. I remember the very first field problem that I went on. The guys there were more than soldiers, they were family and brothers. I never got the opportunity to proudly serve my country or my unit in battle. To all who have served with the 327th, God bless you and keep you safe

I served with A co. 1/327 70-71 vietnam 3rd then 1st platoon.
I Have been trying to locate some of the platoon leaders of that time. I was the PL RTO almost my entire tour. I do remember LT. Lorenzo. I had one that was short and squaty that I nicknamed Spanky cause he looked like Spanky from our gang tv series. Can't remember his name. I served around 4 differnt ones. Any help from anyone that may have some documents from that time that had LT's names would be helpful. Email me if possible.

I just saw on national news that David "Mad Dog" Dolby has died. Mad Dog was awarded the Medal of Honor while serving with the 1st Cav. on his first tour. His second tour was with 2nd Plt. B2/327th, 1967. He was my squad leader until he was called back to the World to recieve the Medal. Sgt. Dolby was the definition of a professional. Those of us who knew him, probably remember several of his sayings that cannot be repeated here. Thanks for teaching me how to stay alive Mad Dog.

Much thanks to Ted Gearing's tip on how to find the info on the men from A/1/327 who were killed on Christmas Eve 1970 (just type in Mike Carretero on the "search" section of this website).
Also Ted could not remember the location of the incident on 4NOV1970 involving the 3 men from C/1/327. If anyone can help me with that, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Can anyone tell me about 4Nov1970 when Capt. Robert Bennett, PFC Charles Hoffman, and Sgt. Joseph Soto from C/1/327 were killed - where did it happen and were their bodies flown into FSB Los Banos? Also what happened on 12Dec1970 when at least 10 men were killed from A/1/327? The Virtual Wall states it was a "misadventure".

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.

I am looking for any information on PFC Robert Charles Johnson, Co B, 2/327th, who died in battle, in Phu Yen Province, June 20th, 1966. I think his tour had just started when he was killed. His hometown was Kanakee, Illinois.
I myself served with Co. C, 1/327th, 1967-68 as an RTO. I was wounded in the Ashau Valley and sent stateside in May'68. Will see you at the next Reunion!
