Looking for anyone that was sent from Tachikawa AFB Japan to Cam Rahn Bay or was at Cam Rahn in 1968 March, April, May time frame. I was a Jet Engine Tecnician from Pope AFB. I have cancer and there are no supporting records of me being sent to Nam and the VA has rejected my claim. I do not remember anyone there with me. If you have any names or information please contace me. I have a picture of me standing in front of the barracks( #1134) I was in that someone took. I was holding a M-16. I had the only m-16 in the barracks. I also go a bad sunburn while on the beach. Thanks

I was fortunate went on Advance Infantry when the 4th left Ft. Lewis. It was on a prop jet. Took forever to make it to Nam. There were I beleive 10 of us on this plane. We were taken to the 25th Div. outside Pleiku. Next move I beleive the following day to the Dragon Mountain. We called it Titty Mountain ( looked like one). The 1st Cav gave us suppot. We were all alone. For along while I share a shelter half with a sargent Coleman. When the rest of the brigade arrived things got a little better. We ate C Rations for God I don't know how long. Trying to out side with monsoon, the ration turned into soup. My first patrol was with Lt. Enari it was his first also. Great man. On patrol I was the machine gunnist. Wow tooting the M60 so heavy. Lots more to chat about but don't want to bore all. Never regretted serving my country. Support our troops. Oh by the way when there was the 10 of on the mountain saw for the first time Mountainards. Women no tops and men only loin cloths. Was very confused LOL.

I served in Viet Nam from 1968-69 in the capacity of a navy corpsman asssigned to the 7th marines. I was in or around Danang for all my tour. I was an oprating room tech at 1st med after my bush tour. Do you have a need for volunteers to go to Viet nam in assisting you? I have returned once in 2001.I wish to see it at least one more time before I die. Thank You, Chris Valdez

I am looking for anyone who might have known my father, Andrew Sooley, who served in the US Army motor pool in Cholon, Saigon during the Tet Offensive. He was a Sergeant at the time. I do not know the exact unit he was attached to but I was hoping at least someone out there might recall any of the time they served with my late father. Thank you.
