Does anyone remember my dad, Maj. Franklin J. Hon, who was an enlisted medic in Vietnam during 1966 - 1968? He told me a few stories on his death bed about about MASH units, carrying soldiers back to helicopters, moving the hospitals, etc. I would love any stories and/or photos anyone has containing him so I can share him with my grandchildren. God bless!!

My grandfather, Emil Sabo, served with the 327 Infantry Machine Gun Company in World War I (he is on the 327th roster, page 23). I have two documents that show PFC Emil Sabo was 1) Gassed and 2) severely wounded on Oct. 18, 1918. I have heard he was awarded a Purple Heart. Who can I contact to verify that, and how can I get the record on this website to document these? Plz email me at [email protected]

My brother Lawrence T. ("Larry", "Butch") was sent to Viet Nam and assigned to C co, 1st Bn. 327th Inf. in June 1966. He was KIA from small arms fire, on 13 September 1966. Any information on where he was, what military operation he was on, or any other information you might be able to provide would be much appreciated. I was proud of him before he joined the service (second Screaming Eagle in my family) and I was proud of him as a soldier. I was assigned to U.S. Army Garrison at Ft Campbell in 1965-66 and saw many of your units go off to war. Bob Borden

"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!

Kim I don't know if you remember me or not but I served with you in Vietnam. I was in Mac's squad as a gunner , I got to Vietnam in August of 71. I want to thank you for helping me to adjust to being there. I had a blue photo album and you marked where we were on it for me .I remember you , Mac, Kinky, Hunter, Renny, Mustang and a cook I think his name was Floyd he would cook bacon sandwiches sometimes at night. I too think about the Chinook day. I met a guy at the fire base we were on Richard Garettson he was on the flight, I talked to his brother years ago. I also had a friend I went to A.I.T. with Jimmy Davis he was with D/502 who went to the crash site. He said the site was a bad scene, they thought the Chinook was shot down. I hope you are doing ok, I'm ok I guess after we got back to Camp Eagle I was sent to Fire Base Jack. When 327 came home I went to C/501 , then to the 196 LIB in Da Nang coming home in June of 72. Thanks again for helping me to adjust to Vietnam.

I was just checking out the site and was looking over Charles Perry's photos. There's is a shot of him next to the sign I painted for our 81mm "Light Horse" mortar unit when we got back for some rest at a Fire Base. If you look closely you can see I spelled "fabulous" wrong. Sergeant (E-7) Wilbur Martin was our platoon sergeant, had put together the largest mortar unit in Vietnam (11 tubes and squads) at the time and was a hell of a guy.

This is for William Jackson. I was with the E 1/327th when the Chinook took off into the low thick overcast at and crashed in November of '71. It was never made clear to us whether the Chinook was shot down or flew into a mountain.

This response is to Ranger Tom Carpenter. The answer to your question about what No Slack Bravo company was called in Viet Nam, was indeed "The Road Runners"
