I am looking for anyone who served with the Special Forces recon teams operating out of Khe Sahn in 1967. I was a USAF FAC (Covey 017)detached to Khe Sahn that year and worked with Army teams on Prairie Fire missions. I remember one team I rescued which was in a hopeless situation, completely surrounded by an NVA force in a deep valley west of Khe Sahn in Laos. The weather had completely blanketed the entire top of the valley with a thick cloud cover that extended from the tops of the vally ridges to about 1500 feet from the valley floor. When I established radio contact with the team, they said they needed air support and possible extraction. I punched through the cloud cover to see if I could break out below the cloud deck before hitting the valley floor. I broke out at about 1,500 feet in rain and scud and managed to find the team. I had no air support as the weather was dangerously bad within the walls of the valley, so I used my marking rockets to hit enemy positions. I was getting intense automatic weapons fire. After supressing the fire, I managed to talk down helicopter support to swuccessfully rescue the team. Does anyone remember this event?

May i say as a fellow korean vet
to each of you brave men that was stationed in the jungles of veitnam i salute you brave men with the highest honor that could be spoken. you seen fellow troops fall to the ground dead before they hit the ground..you heared men cry with pain and seen the fear of men faces in the time of battle..your horror was not a movie but real , enemy was real and he was out to kill you.. you unloaded into a strange land with the smell of blood in the wind.. you heared the sound of mortar shells and seen men fall to their deaths...their faces was just the faces of young boys in their sweet youth.. how could i say enought and honor you for being there in my stead.? how could i thank you with human lips? I seen the wounded at valley forge hospital when i was their with tuberculosis that i caught in korea, I seen strong men without arms and legs because of war.. I heared them cry because of their wounds and seen the faces of those brave wounded men, and this is kept in the memory of and brings thoughts of sorrow in my mind..sometimes my dreams bring me back to that sad and sorrowful time and I wake up with and relize in my mind i have returned to see all your war torn faces and wounds again all refreshed I and then i thank God that it is now just a dream and then i retrace my past to recall all that i have seen and reflect on war and men and wounds and sorrow and I hope that never again in the day of men that war will come ever again to take our young men and woman to their youthful graves... men and fellow vet i thank each and all of you for your service and I am pround to be one of you a fellow vet...God bless from vet mcqueen

I Served with the 1st. Inf. Div. Scout Dog unit @ Xion in 67, and was transferred to the 4th. Inf. Div. 1/10th. Air Cav. @ Pleiku during thet in 68, and then to An Khe when the 4th. Div. moved there. I filled a door gunner slot till a great brother named Gary Brewer (Crew Chief) rotated, then I assumed his position as Crew Chief on the UH1H. The last two months in country I requested to give up my position as Chief, and become a part of the rapid deploy platoon, and back on the ground again. It was granted, and I was with those great guys that I inserted in "hot spots." I felt more comfortable being with them, than looking in there eyes as I left. A Great bunch of guys was with me at that time. I still smell the place at times, especially during early Spring, or Fall. I hear similar sounds from time to time, and when a chopper flies where I live the memories are very real. I still have the sweats, and have to set in a restaurant facing the door. Probably like most of us! I'm glad I happened across this page, I wish the best to all my brothers, and may you find some peace from time to time. Roy

I revere all Viet Nam vets. I honor you. I am your age, I took offered deferments and I can't be called one of you. I should have joined.
But I love and respect you all. I truly respect you all. And if today, I could find a person who spit on you, I would love to break a nose or a jaw. That visage appalls me so much. Really.

My father, Doug Holma, was in Vietnam from 65-66 he was a teletype operator for the 69th signal battalion. He always talks about finding his friends, and I am trying to do this for him. One of the ones he is looking for is a Larry Duval? If he remembers right he was from Kentucky. If anyone out there remembers my father please contact me. Thank you!
