As a teacher of American History in the Phila. School District I would like to know if there is someone from your organization who could speak to my students. I know a number of Vets but I would like them to hear from somebody who is trying to heal the wounds of this war. I think it would be interesting for the students to find out how the people of Vietnam feel about Americans

Served with the Air Force at Phu Cat Airbase (15 miles inland from Qui Nhon) in 68-69. I was a air traffic controller. Our aircraft (call sign Icon) went toward Laos and Cambodia mostly. Radar flight followed many aircraft going feet wet up and down the coast. Fondly remember the C-121's (super Connies) who orbited feet wet for hours to broadcast Vietnamese TV.

I was an HM2 "Doc" with the 1st Marine Div. FLC from 1967 to 1968. I was in Da Nang at Camp Books ( Red Beach) and at FLSG Bravo in Dong Ha. I was in Hue when Tet began. Went on many truck convoys , med-evacs, and also worked for about 6 weeks at the Childrens Hospital sponsored by Marines at Red Beach, Camp Books. We went into the villages as part of the pacification program and held sick call. Was at Vangergriff or LZ stud giving medical support to the Marines. I try to dwell on the few positive aspects of this time as I have suffered from PTSD for so many years. Much I don't or can't remember and it is just as well forgotten. Those who served with me, living and dead, are not forgotten. Their faces are many, though the names I recall are few. Their sacrifices are eternal and will not be forgotten.

I am looking for anyone who may remember my Dad, Fred Monroe Ayers. He did a tour in April 70 to June of 71. He has blocked out a lot of memories and is now finally trying to recover and come home!! What I do know is that he flew in to Cuchi (near Ho Chin Minh City) and went North toward Cambodia or Laos. He was injured in a tank explosion and was taken to Danang. When he recovered he was 2nd Security MP.
My Dads memories of what happened are detailed, but he can not remember dates and names. He feels like he is the only one that can not remember names of the men he fought beside. PLEASE help him remember. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Also if anyone has information on a young man nicknamed "Toad" serving about the same time, please email with any info, pictures or suggestions on how I can be of support to my Dad. God Bless all of our Service men and women and Thank you!
