Directed to Hannibal Re Fort Campbell, Ky Jump School 1966. I was not a member of 327. I was assigned to 321st Artillery. My Story: In 1965, joined a Ship Load of Ammunition in Wilmington NC. Never made it to Vietnam, stranded in Yokosuka, Japan with ship problems. In Japan for 3 months before Navy signed for Ammunition and my three guards and I returned to Fort Campbell.

Assigned to 319th Artillery, 173rd Airborne, Bien Hoa, Vietnam. Story about ship was in December 1966 Readers Digest. "Our Leaky Pipeline to Vietnam" . Ship was USS Malden Victory.

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!

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.

 "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.

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

I would like to have information about Odie, if possible: to know his military career, how he died in service, to have a picture of him, all that would allow me to know him better. I hope you can follow up on my request. Very cordial of you. Stéphanie DARD

I think it was August or September of '71, a bunch of us from Echo Company 1/327th finally got sent to China Beach for seven days of rest. The first day was nice. 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. The raised barracks started coming apart, parts of the roofs tore away and we started tearing the back side apart, using the wood to beef up the end taking all the wind. Another guy and I got hit by waves while looking for more wood. We ended up spending the night in a couple of huge trees which had their 'crotches between the big lower branches filled with sand. The wind switched and the guys stuck in the barracks's spent the night tearing out 'bracing' and moving it to the other end. The next morning the ground was under a foot or so of water and we waded to the remains of the Mess hall, also a raised building, for cold chow. The next few days weren't too bad. The water level dropped back down, they didn't make us fix anything and I think we were brought LLRPs, instead of c-rats, plus beer and [email protected]
