 "TO THOSE WHO HAVE FOUGHT FOR IT, LIFE HAS A FLAVOR THAT THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW!" A special salute to the brave men who landed on the shores ofNormandy to protect our freedoms. Vietnam has left us all with many memories of those with whom we served and those who didn’t make it back. 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. Awarded Purple Heart and three Bronze Stars with “V”. After 5 months in the field, I was pulled to the 93rd Evac at Long Binh to work with soldiers suffering from combat fatigue. Coming home was one of the most difficult parts of our tours. 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. It’s free to Amazon Prime members. Courage on the Mountain 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!

Responding to the question about the 101st and 11th Airborne at Ft. Campbell (then Camp Campbell) about 1950, both Camp Breckenridge and Camp Campbell were airborne training camps during WWII. The 11th Airborne Division was sent to the Pacific theater while the 101st went to the European theater for combat operations. When the war ended, the 11th stayed as an occupation force in Japan while the 101st was inactivated in Dec. '45. The 11th returned to Camp Campbell after leaving Japan in May 1949. When the Korean War broke out in June 1950, the 11th was again a training division at Camp Campbell while the 101st was reactivated soon after. After Korea, the 101st was reassigned to Breckenridge, inactivated in Dec. '53 then reactivated in May 1954 and sent to Fort Campbell in March 1956 (where is became permanently based) while the 11th was dissolved as a division (although briefly reactivated as a test unit from 1963 to 1965 in Vietnam).

Good Day Gentlemen. I have a few questions about FT. Campbell and the 101st Airborne Division. I was born at Ft Campbell in 1950, but my welcoming letter from Brigadier Gen Wayne C Smith, shows a letterhead of 11th Airborne. Did one supercede the other during this time? The reason I ask is that I am the coordinator for the Mail Call Program for the VetsRoll organization out of South Beloit, WI. We take 200+ Vet and Rosies to DC via 10 motor coach buses over 4 days. The Mail Call program asks students to write letters of appreciation to those who served. This year, I have 2 students whose grandfathers served with the 101st. I bought patches for both to commemorate his service. I am just confused about the 11th vs 101st Airborne Division at Ft Campbell. Thank you for your service. If you are interested in our trip, visit the website VETSROLL.ORG Sincerely and Respectfully, Jo Ann

Then a typhoon moved in from the sea. Waves broke across the finger of land making up the 'Beach. They rolled under the building popping floorboards. Winds hit over a hundred.

Hello fellow Infantrymen. Now that some of the info has been de-classified, I am trying to research a bit more about my Dad. Larry Workman who served in 74-75. The picture I have shows he was in 2nd Battalion and I know he was involved in Cambodia. He was a supply Sgt and I know he prepped LZs for supply drops in places we were'nt supposed to be. If you remember anything like that or served with my dad, please contact my email [email protected] Thanks for your service!

Would anyone remember Spec.4 (possibly Sgt?) Robert Callen MacKenzie who was supposedly wounded in the chest during this battle and later discharged from the Army due to the wounds he received. His last duty assignment was with Co B 1st Bn(ABN) 327th Infantry. Bob later joined the Rhodesian Army in the early 1970's and served in the Rhodesian SAS. He achieved the rank of Major while in the SAS and became the most highly decorated American born soldier who served in the Rhodesian Army during the Bush War 1965-80. Bob was later killed in action while working for GSG Security Company in Sierra Leone in 1994. If you have any info please send it to me at my email address; [email protected]

I spent only about a week in the 101st, the last 4 days with C co, 1/327th. Wounded twice on May 29th in a heavy fire fight. I remember the hills were labelled around 825 meters on the platoon map. The first night I spent in an abandoned VC/NVA base camp. We captured a couple five gallon tin containers of documents. 2 days later around noon made contact with the NVA on a ridge, just up from a clear saddle. Hit twice from a small machine gun after my platoon Sgt. placed me in a fire zone. Didnt realize it intil they detected me. Guy next to me took a round thru the head. 3 of us were being positioned there but the 2nd guy was dead before he took two steps. Small chance anyone will remember this event. Please email any [email protected]

Looking for anyone who served with my father Marshall Post. His nickname was probably Mush. Dec 1969-March 1970 when he was wounded. He served with Daniel Brock who was KIA the same day my father was wounded. I would love to connect with his family as well. His friendship meant a lot to my father, and we honor him. My son is actually named Brock Marshall, after both these heroes. Anyway, he was in Delta Company 1-327. If you served with my dad please reach out to me. Thanks! [email protected]

For those unfamiliar with the Hill 86 overrun of B Company, 2/327 members in '66, I urge you to read the late Doug Fields' narrative. In fact, B Co. members had endured an earlier, equally ferocious assault on Hill 86. I was on the Hill for that one, and nearby for the more fatal night. William Frye Siegert, among the many killed in that second incident, was my friend; we had spent the day together, before I had to return to my MG position up the road. For a half-century I had wanted to make contact with Bill's family, to say he was my friend. I would learn that Bill's much younger brother and sister had been essentially barred from speaking of him upon his mother learning of his death. Memorial Day '17 I made contact with Bill's brother & sister and was able to complete my final mission: to bring Bill home to his siblings, who had longed to know of the brother they'd loved, admired and lost. Needless to say, it was a privileged, emotional moment. My thanks to then-Lts. McDonald & Meager for their insights/assistance relative to bringing all of this about. RIP, my brother. we'll meet [email protected]

PVT. Howard Putt Jr. On 20 Jul 69, my cousin, private Howard Putt Jr. was with the 101st up near the Ho Chi Minh trail. Howie was on point and was ordered to cross an open field. When his platoon approached the field the men with him informed the Lt. in charge that there were NVA in sight, the Lt. told his men that the guys they saw were ARVN. Howie was ordered to go directly across the field. Under protest Howard started across the field and within a few steps was shot through the left knee and down he went. The LT. formed the men up and a brief firefight took place over Howie's downed body. The Lt. then ordered his men into a strategic withdrawal, leaving Howie behind to become target practice for the enemy. Howard told me that they fired everything that they had at him and all the while he was bleeding out. Just when Howie was ready to give up, he felt a hand on his ankle. Howard's sergeant had come back for him and dragged Howie off the field under withering automatic weapon fire. They made it to the edge of the forest and a MEDIVAC flew in but the co-pilot was killed and the chopper withdrew from that LZ. Howard and some other wounded men were then brought into the jungle and the guys they were with took TNT from their packs and blew up some trees to make an LZ and the wounded were extracted from the scene. The sergeant was awarded the Silver Star Medal for his actions that day. If this sounds familiar to anyone, I would like to know the name of the sergeant, the co-pilot who was killed and the name of the LT.? Thanks! [email protected]
