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. Last Friday and Saturday, 21 & 22 June, I attended the C Co/1st Bn/327th Infantry reunion in Duffield VA as a guest of my brother and the members of that unit. I did not meet any member that knew Butch, but The pride I felt around those heroes from Viet Nam to Afghanistan is indescribable. I know I can speak for my son and brothers who were also...

I know I can speak for my son and brothers who were also there, I personally do not believe in the term “Closure”, but I did feel wonderful meeting everyone. Having put my wife though all of those years while I was deployed, etc. I also have tremendous respect for those women I met. Since Ron Gallant’s father and my mother are both from Prince Edward Island Canada, I’m going to do some checking to see if we may be distant cousins. I want to thank all of you for your invitation and hospitality. May Gad bless all of you. 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 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

Mark Corral "Doc" from Bullhead City wrote on June 7, 2018 at 11:04:
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.

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.

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.
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.

I was with the rescue party D Co 2nd 502nd that recovered the Chinook that was shot down on Nov 28 1971, I am glad to see that this site acknowledges that this chopper was shot down and did not crash, we all knew at the time that this was not a crash, wish that the DOD would honor these fine Screaming Eagles with their due, sad that they still say that it was a crash!

50 years ago on April 19, 1968, Operation Delaware unfolded for the 1/327 along with other battalions of the 1st Brigade, an ARVN unit and the 1st Air Cav. Shortly afterwards FB Veghal was established and the first two weeks or so of the operation was a real meat grinder for the 1/327. Those were exciting and tragic times. I was with B Company from 3/68 to 8/68 then with Tiger Force from 8/68 to 1/69 and then back to B Company for the last few weeks of my tour. Lots of good young men were KIA, many more WIA and all those who survived are forever Brothers. I appreciate all those I served with, am in awe of your courage and grit, oh the things we endured, and would love to hear from you.

I was in Bravo Co. 2nd Bn -327th, 2nd plt. Some people called me razor. My name is Elmer Ray Stephens. I was there from December 1970 till March 1972. I spent about 7 or 8 months attached to 75th ranger inf. I was involved in the lam-son missions. The Army can't find any record of me ever being in service at all, even though I have several documents to prove I was in the Military. I'm missing some documents, trying to find answers.I have no documents proving I was in Viet Nam. I am trying to find someone who remembers me. I have been trying to get disability from Va but without records, they will not give me service connected. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks for your time, Elmer

Hello- this past weekend was the parade in San Mateo for the 327th, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the adoption by the city of San Mateo, and I was also at the homecoming parade in 1972, because my dad had served with the 101st in WWII, 506th PIR, Easy Co. One of the speakers at the banquet Saturday night talked about having given equipment away to 12-year old kids then, and I was one of those kids, and at the event in 1972 Lt. Ed Holland gave me some of his equipment (wisely he declined my request for his M-16), and it would be great to get in contact with him, if any unit members could help. The vets I approached after the parade didn't know him personally, but a couple of guys suggested this website. Any assistance would be appreciated. Many thanks.

I regret not having reaching out to contact Pete prior to his death.
