On June 10th, 1970, Delta Company, 2/327th Inf (No Slack) was attacked on FSB Tomahawk, Phu Loc, by a company of NVA sappers. The men of Delta Company heroically and successfully defended the FB, killing more than 30 NVA and capturing 3 during a sweep of the perimeter after sunrise. We had 1 KIA, Artillery trooper and a few WIA. The NVA sappers never penetrated the perimeter wire. They were detected inside the wire before they were ready to attack, by alert men on our perimeter. Fifty years later, for the men that were on Tomahawk, I want to say thank you for your courage and bravery in the fight to defend this FB. You did an outstanding job. Unfortunately, many Fire Bases were overrun during the war and they are the ones that are remembered. But, those that were successfully defended, don't make the history book's. June and July of 1970, FSB Ripcord was under siege and after losing many soldiers, the Fire Base was abandoned and bomb by B52's. It wasn't because the troop's didn't try desperately to defend it, but in my opinion it was abandoned because the Division was not allowed to send additional troops to clear the area of NVA and support the men on the FB. The draw down of the war had begun and we were in the Vietnamization phase. After Hamburger Hill, the politician's did not want anymore major battles, with lose of life. Not good publicity for the public back home. The politicians back home had given up on the war that they had thought was necessary. Sound familiar.

For the troops that were on FSB Tomahawk, 6/10/1970 and are still with us, I want you to know that you saved a lot of lives that night and defeated a highly trained NVA Sapper Company that had been sent all the way from North Vietnam to attack us, as they had successfully done in June 1968 and 1969. You should be recognized and applauded for what you did. I wish all of you well and hope life has treated you well. For those that have passed since 1970, we will not forget your service to our Country and your fellow soldier's. "No Slack" [email protected]

On this day in '68, the 1/327 air assaulted from the open area at the base of FSB Birmingham west to the base of Hill 333 also along 547A. Days later when the twin peaks were finally secured, FSB Veghel would be constructed. It was costly in men and aircraft. Sp4 Royce E Eddleman gave "the last full measure" that day on that road, a friend from HHC 1/501. I served with B/1/327 3rd plt 3rd sqd 04/68 to 12/68. 414-750-1758

I am posting this to find soldiers who served with the 2nd Bn/327th Infantry/Company C and who fought at the Battle of Tuy Hoa on or about June 19, 1966. I am trying to find any eye-witnesses to a helo assault by the 161st Assault Helicopter Company on the enemy position near Hill 258 to assist Company C in breaking contact and to move out of the valley. One of the helos was a Huey-1B gunship with Scorpion 042 painted on the nose and a white stripe on the tail boom. Its M60 door gunner was SSgt Donald O. Smith U.S. Army (ret). For his heroic actions that day he received the Distinguished Flying Cross but was promised that it would be upgraded to a Medal of Honor. However, after all these years the Army never fulfilled this promise even after he was credited with 42 enemy killed per his DFC Citation. I am hoping that any new statements might give SSgt Smith what he needs to get the Army to give him either a yes or a no answer. At 88 years old he does not have much more time to wait for it. Any info provided will be greatly appreciated and my sincere thanks to all of you who were at the tip of the spear. [email protected]

Many people have asked about the 11 Air Assault Unit and have some confused ideas about it. When I was serving with the 82nd ABN the 11th was a test unit at Fort Benning, Georgia for the new helicopter mobility concept. This was 1964 I think when I first met some troops from Benning we were visiting my unit. I am unsure but believe this test unit evolved into the First Cavalry. Hope this helps dissipates some of the confusion. [email protected]

I was in B Company,1st Battalion, 1st Brigade from 1962 thru 1964. I was the 1st platoon RTO. Phillip Chasson was my platoon Sgt. Company exec was Lt. Cobb. First Shirt was Msgt. Vonnie Jones. Any guys that remember the company sign on the troop line with the big indian, I was the guy that painted it. When Msgt Jones was promoted and went to Battalion he took me enforcement along and I was assigned as the staff driver for S3. Major Koherner was Battalion CO. After I was discharged I joined the Chicago P.D and did 41 years in law enforcement I would love to hear from other troopers. Joe Risius where are you?

Wishing all you Airborne Grunts the best Thanksgiving ever, my Thanksgiving in RVN was on the side of a steep hill during a hell of a monsoon rain. The dressing turned into soup, and my bread disappeared, but that cold turkey was great. I am sure you all have similar memories . NO SLACK and keep the faith.
