My husband was a picture of perfect health on July 31st of 2005 we found out that he had bile duct cancer it took the VA in Indianapolis Indiana a long time to decide what to do they told me that at a T1 stage that he had a 80% good chance of coming home and living with in his means..They done sugery on Aug 16th 2005 and he died on Aug 19th of 2005 they called me at 3:15 in the morning wanting me to let my daughter turn him off I refused till I got there when I got there they kept saying that they thought he had a heart attack didn't I and I said no we were told of no heart problems in him only what i seen on the medical recrords after his death.. I argued with the hospital from 4am till after 6am that I wanted an autopsy after getting it and getting the papers signed they turned him off what killed my husband was not a heart attack but was 7 litters of blood in him where he bleed out..I know that my husband isn't the only Vietnam vet that had and has this cancer I am trying to get the VA to accept this the bile duct operates the pancase that in return makes suger so they are all hooked togather
God Bless all our VETS

I was in Viet Nam in 1969. I was a baker by MOS
I am looking for anyone that remembers me from
Viet Nam or from any other duty station. I have a
very bad memory loss and I can only remember
small portions of any of my duty from Nov. 1 , 1962 untill May of 1972 when I was discharged from the Marine Corp. I later joined the National Guards (there were no Marine Reserve units near where I lived) and stayed in there for almost 13 years. I am now retired from Military Service. I
sincerely hope to hear from some of or all or the MEN that I served with. I do know that I was in
the 2nd Plt. on Parris Island for Boot Camp and my Sr. Drill Instructor was a SSgt Williams (or he might have been a GSgt.)and one of our DI's was
a Sgt. Murphy. If anyone can be of help to methen please e-mail me at email@example.com
or you can call me or send me a letter through regular mail. I have no pictures except for a group
picture from Boot Camp Graduation. I have no other
""souvanier"" and apparently can not spell.
Hope to hear from some one soon. Thanks in
advance and SEMPER FI and God Bless each of you and all who are now serving and the families of
all those that GAVE ALL.

I was in Hue, Vietnam from July 66-67. I was the Civil Affairs and Psycological War Officer for the first 6 months of duty there. In November I was made Captain and later became the RDMTT training officer with 2 other US Army Captains. Captain Dow was one. Our training team was awarded #1 of 6 teams in Vietnam. I had many Vietnamese friends, in fact we worked with 9 Vietnamese officers training every two weeks an ARVN unit.
I remember my Vietnamese counterpart faces but don't remember their names. That was 50 years ago. On December 23, 1996, my sergeant and I rescued 2 Marines north of Hue in a village below the DMZ. We had a Vietnamese Lt and a few of his men drive with us in another vehicle as far as we could into the jungle, then we walked on foot into a Marine operation that was being conducted to rescue the two wounded Marines.
While we were driving back, it became dark and we drove the jeep into the concertina wire protecting the Marine perimeter. We turned over the two Marines to the guards at the fence and had to leave the jeep.
My sergeant and I rode back with the Vietnamese Officer and his men in their vehicle to our base camp. It was pitch black and you could see the light in the church steeple where are camp was. At the time we drove through the enemy but they did not attack us in order to surprise attack the Marine Camp. We had radio contact with the Marine Col whose camp was 1.5 Km from ours. At 9 pm sharply, the enemy attacked the Marine camp. We provided the artillery support since our camp had a 155 and 105 under the control of Vietnamese Lt in our camp. I remember the Marine Col requesting support through his command and was unable to get any help. The Col requested from me for help. I went through MACV channels to get approval. We had the artillery in our camp fire flares to light the sky above the Marine's camp. The 50 caliber machine gun fire from the Marines seemed to be in our direction by watching the tracers from their guns.
When the Col could not get air support, I was able to get the support from MACV in conjunction with my Vietnamese counterpart.
By dawn, Puff the Magic Dragons were still zapping the enemy and circling the Marine's camp. It was an awesome sight to watch the lightening bolts from the gatling guns spray the enemy.
In the morning I went back to retrieve my jeep and learned from the Marines that no Marine was killed in this action.
To this day, I always wondered about the Captain and the Marine we helped and if the Col ever knew about the team that helped his unit. I also wonder about any of my MACV, and Vietnamese friends.
If anyone was in HUE from 66-67, or worked on the Revolutionary Development Mobile Training Team, (RDMTT) with me, I would like to hear from you.
