In November of 1962 I signed into the 327th Battle Group (ABN) and was assigned to C Company (Cold Steel Cobras). As a 2nd Lieutenant, I was further assigned as the Platoon Leader of the 2nd Platoon. I remained there until the !01st Airborne Division was reorganized in February

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 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.

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]

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]

Dear 327th Infantry Veterans; My name is LTC Groen (Royal Dutch Army). Recently, I have created a FB-page which focuses on the book I started to research and write since October 2016. The month before, I met Dick Klein (HQ Co/3/501), Guy Whidden (HQ Co/502), and Jim 'Pee Wee' Martin (G Co/506) in the Netherlands. After speaking with them, and seeing the great DVD Doug Barber has made of Jim's WWII experiences, I was really inspired. I wanted to put these stories together in a book and after consulting the renowned WW II 101 AD historian Mark Bando, I travelled to the US in March 2017 to conduct my in-depth interviews. Since then, I am not only working hard on the book, but I am also collaborating with the Patriot Foundation and the Screaming Eagles Foundation as we want to raise as much money as possible to set up scholarships for children of families of veterans who have been hit by the recent War on Global Terrorism. We try to do so not only by using the (future) revenues of the book but also through the currently running Christmas funding campaign. I will try to keep you updated on all the activities I conduct in the upcoming period up to the release of the book. I hope you will not only enjoy all these stories but that you are also willing to share the message about this book and the funding project with your families, friends and within any available social media.

My most memorable experience regarding the “Donut Dollies” was during Operation Lam Son 719 in March and April.

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.

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.’

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....

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

My brother Lawrence T. ("Larry", "Butch") was sent to Viet Nam and assigned to C co, 1st Bn. 327th Inf. in June 1966. He was KIA from small arms fire, on 13 September 1966. Any information on where he was, what military operation he was on, or any other information you might be able to provide would be much appreciated. I was proud of him before he joined the service (second Screaming Eagle in my family) and I was proud of him as a soldier. I was assigned to U.S. Army Garrison at Ft Campbell in 1965-66 and saw many of your units go off to war. Bob Borden

I had a blue photo album and you marked where we were on it for me .I remember you , Mac, Kinky, Hunter, Renny, Mustang and a cook I think his name was Floyd he would cook bacon sandwiches sometimes at night. I too think about the Chinook day. I met a guy at the fire base we were on Richard Garettson he was on the flight, I talked to his brother years ago. I also had a friend I went to A.I.T. with Jimmy Davis he was with D/502 who went to the crash site. He said the site was a bad scene, they thought the Chinook was shot down. I hope you are doing ok, I'm ok I guess after we got back to Camp Eagle I was sent to Fire Base Jack. When 327 came home I went to C/501 , then to the 196 LIB in Da Nang coming home in June of 72.

There's is a shot of him next to the sign I painted for our 81mm "Light Horse" mortar unit when we got back for some rest at a Fire Base. If you look closely you can see I spelled "fabulous" wrong. Sergeant (E-7) Wilbur Martin was our platoon sergeant, had put together the largest mortar unit in Vietnam (11 tubes and squads) at the time and was a hell of a guy.

John Ortiz, I emailed you a few minutes ago. Following is a recap of that email. I was Louis's platoon leader for several months. Even though I was no longer a platoon leader ( I got a job in the rear as Executive Officer of D company in August, 1969) when Louis was killed, I always considered him one of my men and his life and death touched my life in many ways. In the 1990s, I wrote a series of tribute stories, honoring men who I was close to and died. I wrote a short story about Louis. At that time I had my own web page and put the stories on line. After more than twenty years and multiple relocations and a busy life, I need to do some searching to find a hard and/or digital copy of the story. Have you read this story? I think I titled it, something like, "Louis T Ortiz, a good soldier with a rough start and a premonition of death that came true". The story needed to be revised as the internet has opened up some channels of communication among us veterans. I will continue searching for the story. I would be interested in learning more about Louis too.

"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 knew 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. Remember your Christmas in Vietnam? Mine 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. With your military background, you may find it interesting. There are presently over One Hundred 5 Star Reviews worldwide 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 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!

I see that on this site it is called a shootdown, it is officially listed as a crash, we at the site were sure it was a shootdown, glad to see that others think so. The men on this flight deserve to get their Purple Heart, if anyone else has any info please let me know.
