 "To those who have fought for it, Life has a flavor that the protected will never know!" Between mortars, rockets, RPGs, booby traps and bullets, there was no safe place in for a soldier in Vietnam. 50 years has passed since the war but we have only to close our eyes to rejoin our brothers in the greatest nightmarish adventure of most of our lives. Remember your Christmas in the Nam? Mine was spent on an ambush patrol near the Cambodian border. I served with the 25th Infantry Division-3/22nd Battalion, Tay Ninh and later the 93rd Evac Hospital at Long Binh. -We may have served in different units in different AOs but our mission was the same! -Courage on the Mountain- Free to Amazon Prime members- Over one hundred 5 star reviews- courageonthemountain.com Glad that you made it home brother!

I noticed on the 327th Challenge coin narrative you claimed the Regiment "glided" into Normandy. Actually they didn't. They were the "Seaborne Forces" and were put ashore at Utah Beach on 6 and 7 June 1944. Not enough aitcraft to tow the gliders. [email protected]

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]

My Uncle, LRRP 101st, his detail reported to Gen Westmoreland directly. As a living nephew, I am here to confess, the war is still happening in him! He was 22 in the battle of Mother Day Hill May 13,1967. He survived to do the most unthinkable thing a human memory has to ever endure. A story that still has not been told, as a FAO, calling iin B52 strikes while in Cambodia (not even supposed to be there!) killing 60,000 + NVA during the Tet buildup on the "Trail". My Uncle 74 now, lives in the bush of Canada now. Only been in the USA to bury his father. Raised 5 children with a beautiful wife in the most peaceful surrounding a man could have, built his home out of logs, traps, hunts, fishing ect. The United States Government turned their backs on many United States Veterans of Vietnam. The Vietnam War tore our family apart. It still is broken. Even my mother, died trying help fix what "The Nam" took from us. This story WILL BE TOLD!

My grandfather referred this website to me, he seemed very proud that he could help display his fellow veterans on this website. After checking it out, I got to see amazing photos our veterans shared and some details about them as individuals that you wouldn't find in some history book.

Hello to all ABUs! I'm working on a project for my brother and need to find an expanded and non-censored version of the story that includes the reasoning behind the animal parts chosen. It also includes language similar to "if the unit followed ABU into battle it would be victorious. And they would always prevail with less casualties than any unit." Apparently, part of the description also included “tough mother f’er” or something similar. The two descriptions found on this site are close but not the one my brother remembers. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with this project, and thanks to all of you for your [email protected]
