To those who helped me find info on my uncle SSGJames A Plummer who died from injuries of a April 23 1967 helicopter crash, thank you all. I was working with very little info to start. I learned that Raymond "No Slack" Benson was killed in the same crash. Since all the other passengers were from the 327th I assumed he was too but learned today he might have actually been with the 326th A company. Anyway because of one of you I was contacted by the Army today and was offered a summary of my uncles Army career. They told me it will be ready in a few days. My family is very grateful for your service and your help. God bless each and every one of you. K Plummer

This is for Judith Gray who is interested in the 'Donut Dollies.' They were a group of courageous and caring young women who came out to our Fire Bases and field locations to boost our sometimes sagging morale with their upbeat attitude. I served with E 1/327th 101st from early January to late December of ’71. The girls from the Red Cross came out to Fire Bases Bastogne and Birmingham where they played games and served us food in the mess halls. One buddy put it well, that it was like having your sisters show up to hang out and cheer you up. My most memorable experience regarding the “Donut Dollies” was during Operation Lam Son 719 in March and April. It was a screwed up operation where two of our mortar team’s, four of us from the FDC, and a rifle platoon were, via Hueys, sent from Bastogne to a tiny O.P for ‘four days,’ prior to being sent back to Eagle for some rest. Except, when our four days were up, we were relocated to another tiny O.P near the Ashau. When we arrived on ‘O.P. Destroyer’ we were greeted by the wreckage of a Huey on the hillside. Our ‘brief time’ there turned into fifty-five days. The resupply system went to hell. We ran low on C-rations, ammo, and water was sourced from a stream at the base of the hill. At one point couple cases of c-rations arrived which had cans containing dead bugs. There was ‘activity’ around us. At one point some of the claymores set out by the guys in the Night Defensive Positions were found to have been turned around during the night.

There was a ‘miss fire’ from one of the 81mm tubes and a couple of us got nicked. We showered maybe twice when it rained. The ‘DX’ clothes exchange system never happened on Destroyer. Consider nearly two months in the heat, in the same fatigues. Moral was pretty low until early one afternoon a few weeks into our stay, a Huey showed up bringing mail, LRRP rations, and a real surprise. There were two Donut Dollies in their Red Cross outfits.. They had brought boxes of Red Cross ‘goodies, and a garbage can filled with ice, beer and sodas. They were cheerful, ignored how ragged we looked and how bad we obviously smelled. Somehow, they had heard about us, gathered up the beer, sodas and ‘goodies, and talked their way onto a ride to Destroyer. They played games, and BS’d with everyone on the hill. Although I can’t recall their names, I’ll never forget them, and the risk they took to get to us. While that was their only visit, shortly after they left, Mermite containers containing hot meals arrived. According the door gunner, “sent by your girlfriends.” Later, a second can filled with drinks showed up. While supply ships were still few and far between, when they did show, there were ‘Dolly sent goodies.’

I served with E Co 1st Bn 327th Inf in 1971-72. Since so many units were Standing Down and going home, a lot of soldiers were being transferred from unit to unit until they had enough time in country. I got to drive a Jeep out to FB Birmingham several times a week. Using the Ferry Barge always gave me time to enjoy the Vietnam people who populated the area near the river crossing. The best were the kids who sold the chewiest peanut brittle every made. Some times they would have popcorn for sale. Anything to make a living. I was assigned as the Stand-down Supply Sgt to get rid of everything were could not ship back to the States, which was about everything we had. I also had the opportunity to take care of our company mascot "Lady" the Spaniel looking dog. She was spaded and left on my doorstep, unable to move. I made a bed for her in my hooch room and sat up with her all night until she could life her head. I remember dripping water on her tongue so she could have something to drink. By morning, I had brought back milk from the Mess Hall for her as well as some mashed up C-Ration beef slices. It took her two days to recover.

They were driven to the Evac Hosp and I never saw them again. I do not know why I never got wounded in either of my tours in Nam. As I was getting ready to move over to E/1/501, our Company Commander, Cpt Casey took down the Guidon that was stapled to the Wall in the Orderly room and tossed it in the burn barrel, which had not been fired up for the day as yet. I asked Cpt Casey if I could have the Guidon since he was going to trash it anyway and he said "Go ahead, it all torn up any way." I still have it. I did call the 101st museum at Ft Campbell and asked if they wanted it. Naturally they said, "Yes." So, until I am able to get to Ft. Campbell again, it is locked away, ready for their display case someday. I wanted to write this stuff down before I lost all my memories. Getting old is bad enough.... To all my Vietnam Brothers I say, "Welcome Home."

I am the oldest son on SSG Patrick Henry Buckner. Some of you may have remembered him by "Buck". My father was 1/327 Tiger Force. He passed away on 3/12/18 from cancer presumptive to Agent Orange. I know that he did not have the opportunity to tell his living brothers goodbye, so I am doing that for him now. I know he is in a better place, no longer fighting, and with his brothers you all lost in Vietnam. My prayers go out to all of you who are still fighting the good fight. I miss my father each and every day, but i know what he fought for meant something. If any of you have stories, pictures, or knew of my father, please touch base with me. My dad left behind me, my mother, his daughter, and another son named after him. My email is: [email protected] Please dont hesitate to contact me. Thank you all and may God bless!

Good Morning All, My name is David McCandless, and I handle veterans affairs and constituent services matters for Congressman Steve Chabot. We are currently working with our constituent, a veteran, Mr. Dewitt Battle. Mr. Battle is an African American medic who served in Vietnam from 1965-1967. Mr. Battle received numerous honors for distinguished service for saving a number of lives while in grave danger to himself. He is widely seen as someone who should be put forth for the Congressional Medal of Honor. I have hundreds of pages of documentation from his unit and his own personnel files. The problem we are running into is that we cannot identify the individuals he saved or people who may have known him. If you could be of any assistance getting the word out or sharing with your membership it would be greatly appreciated. I can provide documentation as appropriate and can be reached by email or at the number below.

jump school in Ft Campbell Ky in 1960 lasted 6 weeks, we did a hell of alot of running, from class to class (all of which were held outside in the woods. spent many hours practicing PLF's from platforms (3ft high) into sawdust pits, then jumping from the tower (34 ft high) our first jump was from a C-130, second jump was from a C-119, and the last three from a the C-130 the last and final jump was a night jump, next morning we assembled outside in our PT shorts in 25 degree weather and went on a 5 mile run then were assembled in the parade grounds where we donned our dress coat and garrison cap for a photo, still in our PT shorts and boots. Then we were released and told we had 15 minutes to change into our fatigues and fall into formation for our graduation where we had our cherry wings pinned on to our chest. That night we all got plastered. the next day myself and my squad received our blood wings. (we each got the Airborne wings tattooed 3 inches above our heart.

I went thru jump School @ Ft Campbell in November of 1960 as a private, I was on Special Duty assigned to "C" Company 2-502nd Combat Strike battle Group. Took a burst of six and stayed in the 101st until July 1966, after the bad experience in SE Asia I decided to become a private contractor and spent the following years doing what I do best.

In 1965, I was assigned to US Army Garrison, Ft Campbell, Ky. My brother was a paratrooper at Ft Campbell also. Little did I realize then, my lifelong connection to the “Screaming Eagles”. I was too young to understand the impact of the unit next to mine getting orders to a place most of us never heard of somewhere in Southeast Asia. My ETS was in February 1966 and my brother, Lawrence Thomas “Butchie” Borden, was close to his ETS in June of 1966. For reasons only he knew, he reenlisted I suppose, to do what he wanted to do. Less than three Months later, my parents were never the same (especially my father). For more than fifty years, I knew how he died because the CAO told us, but I wanted to know more about the people in his unit. I did reenlist and spent 27 more years in the military as a TOW/ITAS/Bradley Fighting Vehicle missile and other systems repairer/instructor at all levels. I was always in a role as Combat Service Support and because of my experiences being so close to the Infantry and Armor units, I always was mindful of who was dependent on the equipment I was repairing. My last job as a civilian was working with the Close Combat Weapon Systems Project Office writing the operator and maintenance manuals for the systems I grew up on.

"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 felt that the above statement would have special meaning for you. 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. Awarded three Bronze Stars with "V" and Combat Infantryman's Badge. The cover photo on my site looks out the front window of a Huey onto the Black Virgin Mountain. My Christmas 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 twenty Five 5 Star Reviews worldwide. Courage on the Mountain courageonthemountain.com 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 of all the men and women who served our country during the Vietnam war. I'm proud that you made it home brother! Thank you for your service and May God Bless! George Reischling

Company D 2/327th of 101st Airborne, Medic, Apr 69 to Mar 70. The family of Mark Corral are frantically looking for anyone that may have served with Mark during this time period. Here is his story. Mark contracted Hep C after being innoculated by the army with a dirty needle. The Hep C was not discovered until 1999 during a routine medical checkup for life insurance. There was no cure for Hep C until approx 2 years ago. He received treatment for the Hep C but before he could be cured, the Hep C destroyed Marks liver. He is in desperate need of a liver transplant today. Mark has also suffered with serious battle fatique (PTSD) over the years that resulted in the wrongful loss of his VA benefits. Therefore, we are looking for anyone that may have known Mark or could have served during the same time frame that can speak to the circumstances in Viet Nam at that time. I can provide more detailed information regarding exactly where he was in Viet Nam at specific times if needed. I am his little sister, Sue. I am easiest reached by phone at (434)645-7711 or feel free to respond to the post. I have his daughter watching it. I am too old for all this facebook stuff.

There was no cure for Hep C until approx 2 years ago. He received treatment for the Hep C but before he could be cured, the Hep C destroyed Marks liver. He is in desperate need of a liver transplant today. Mark has also suffered with serious battle fatique (PTSD) over the years that resulted in the wrongful loss of his VA benefits. Therefore, we are looking for anyone that may have known Mark or could have served during the same time frame that can speak to the circumstances in Viet Nam at that time. I can provide more detailed information regarding exactly where he was in Viet Nam at specific times if needed. I am his little sister, Sue. I am easiest reached by phone at (434)645-7711 or feel free to respond to the post. I have his daughter watching it. I am too old for all this facebook stuff.

As the current brigade commander of the 1st Brigade, 101st Abn Div, I wish every present and former member of the 327th Infantry a special Memorial Day. I know for all of us Memorial Day is every day, but today we pause with our Countrymen to pay respect and to remember. Today's Screaming Eagle Soldier is very proud of the sacrifice and honor made by those who came before us. We stand a bit taller when you are around and when we speak of your actions. For today, though, we pay particular respect to those who didn't make it home and who paid it all. They are not forgotten. Honor and Country.

Remembering all our men and women who made the supreme sacrifice does not get easier as time passes. I read the names and weep at the loss. I'll be attending my COBRA reunion this June to be with other COBRAS, my brothers from VN and my younger brothers that came after us and continue to Honor our COBRA/1/327th 101st.

I served in 3rd platoon C/1327 from Sept 67 until Sep 68.Other then Fred Raymond no one else who served in 3rd Platoon at that time seems to remember me.I was medically evacuated on Christmas Day in 1967 and didn't get back until just before we took took LZ Veghel and most of the guys who I knew were gone when got back.Other then humping up and down hills and getting soaked when it rained I don't recall much of the time that I served in the 327th.I remember when we found trucks and artillery pieces buried and getting caught between the tanks and the NVA a few times when we were patrolling along the road off of LZ Birmingham.I lived in Asia most of of my life after I retired from the army in 1986 so I have never attended any reunions and have not kept in contact with anyone who served with the 1/327th in 67 and 68 other then Fred Raymond,Roger Morris and Walter.I Jackson.I stayed in Vietnam from Sep 67 until Aug 71 but served in LRRP,and Rangers the last three years that I was there.So the first tour doesn't remain as clear in my memory as the last three.I had hoped to find Tom Warf but I heard that he has already passed.I went to visit Bill Beatie when I was on leave in the states in the fall of 1968 but he doesn't recall me.I visited Heny Pasilla's family at that time as well.I thought a lot of Henry and made a promise to myself when he got killed that I would stay in Vietnam as long as I could and kill as many NVA as I possibly could.I kept that promise.I only left Vietnam after the army would no longer allow me to...

"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 felt that the above statement would have special meaning for you. 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. Awarded three Bronze Stars with "V" and Combat Infantryman's Badge. The cover photo on my site looks out the front window of a Huey onto the Black Virgin Mountain. My Christmas 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 twenty Five 5 Star Reviews worldwide. Courage on the Mountain 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 of all the men and women who served our country during the Vietnam war. Available on line for only $2.99 I'm proud that you made it home brother!

I have been doing some research on my great-uncle, George F. Bublin (my father's mother's brother), as the 100th anniversary of his death is approaching. He started out in the 311th at Camp Dix after he was drafted on 27 SEP 17, and was transferred to the 327th, Company C, at Camp Gordon on 13 NOV 17. He left New York City aboard the Baltic on 25 APR 18 & was killed in action in the Argonne Forest on 10 OCT 18. Your on-line resources here are marvelous - I've been looking over the spreadsheet of the regimental roster & can see it was involved in some very heavy action in the first part of October - the casualties from that time are sobering.
