50 years ago on April 19, 1968, Operation Delaware unfolded for the 1/327 along with other battalions of the 1st Brigade, an ARVN unit and the 1st Air Cav. Shortly afterwards FB Veghal was established and the first two weeks or so of the operation was a real meat grinder for the 1/327. Those were exciting and tragic times. I was with B Company from 3/68 to 8/68 then with Tiger Force from 8/68 to 1/69 and then back to B Company for the last few weeks of my tour. Lots of good young men were KIA, many more WIA and all those who survived are forever Brothers. I appreciate all those I served with, am in awe of your courage and grit, oh the things we endured, and would love to hear from you.

I was in Bravo Co. 2nd Bn -327th, 2nd plt. Some people called me razor. My name is Elmer Ray Stephens. I was there from December 1970 till March 1972. I spent about 7 or 8 months attached to 75th ranger inf. I was involved in the lam-son missions. The Army can't find any record of me ever being in service at all, even though I have several documents to prove I was in the Military. I'm missing some documents, trying to find answers.I have no documents proving I was in Viet Nam. I am trying to find someone who remembers me. I have been trying to get disability from Va but without records, they will not give me service connected. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks for your time, Elmer

Hello- this past weekend was the parade in San Mateo for the 327th, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the adoption by the city of San Mateo, and I was also at the homecoming parade in 1972, because my dad had served with the 101st in WWII, 506th PIR, Easy Co. One of the speakers at the banquet Saturday night talked about having given equipment away to 12-year old kids then, and I was one of those kids, and at the event in 1972 Lt. Ed Holland gave me some of his equipment (wisely he declined my request for his M-16), and it would be great to get in contact with him, if any unit members could help. The vets I approached after the parade didn't know him personally, but a couple of guys suggested this website. Any assistance would be appreciated. Many thanks.

Recently learned that my fellow 91-C while there Pete Barszczowski (known as "Rab" or "Rabbit") passed away 1/2016 in his home state of Pennsylvania where he was a family physician. I regret not having reaching out to contact Pete prior to his death.

I arrived in Phan Rang July 4th 1966 to C/2/327th as a replacement. Was assigned a radio for the CO a 1st Lt, can not remember his name he was soon replaced by Capt. Moody. Being in Co HQ I did not get to know many guys in the platoons si nce I was only there til Sep 18, boobytrap at the well. Can remember Brownridge, Burback in commo and Teague in 1st platoon I think, Red, a medic and Brown , a medic. When I got hit I had a camera and lots of exposed film in my gear. Wish I had some of those pics. Hope someone from the company got the film developed. I am sure they had no way to find me. I know this is a long shot but hey. Thanks and thank you all for your service.

All veterans and dependents who are interested in learning about Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation, pension or general benefits can learn at U.S. Veteran Compensation Programs (USVCP) (http://www.veteranprograms.com). USVCP is a “how to” resource that teaches veterans how to gain benefits they’ve earned. Also, veterans & dependents visit often to learn about “breaking news” that affects veterans and their family members. USVCP has been a great resource for me, and I’m sure it will help you too.

Sue Mulligan, I saw your entry and wanted to let you know that I served along side Dennis, literally, we were in the same squad. Was really sorry to hear of his passing, he was a great guy and we always got along well. Last time I actually saw him was in July 1971 when my tour ended. If I remember correctly it was the day after his 21st birthday which we celebrated the by putting 21 matches on a c-ration pound cake. Feel free to get in touch as I am more than happy to share my memories.

"TO THOSE WHO HAVE FOUGHT FOR IT, LIFE HAS A FLAVOR THAT THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW!" I came upon your site while surfing the net and knew that the above statement would have special meaning for your members. I served with 3/22nd, 25th Infantry Division out of Tay Ninh as an infantryman. Fought the NVA on the slopes of Nui Ba Den twice with numerous firefights in and around the area bordering the Cambodian border. Remember your Christmas in Vietnam? Mine was spent on an ambush patrol near the Cambodian border. After 5 months in the field, I was pulled to the 93rd Evac at Long Binh to work with soldiers suffering from combat fatigue. Over the last 10 years, I chronicled my tour of duty and the response has been overwhelming. There are presently over One Hundred 5 Star Reviews worldwide I believe that you will relate to this true story of the fight for Nui Ba Den and the struggles and sacrifices that the soldiers who served their country in Vietnam endured. Thousands of Vietnam Veterans have proudly endorsed these memoirs. Please check out the website at courageonthemountain.com with the accompanying introduction. It will make you proud for your service and all the men and women who served our country during the Vietnam war. I proud that you made it home brother! Thank you for your service and May God Bless!
