My brother John P. Higginbotham was in Cam Rahn Bay from 1966 -67, Co. C, 41st Sig. BN., He was a mail clerk and we really would like to hear from anyone who knew him. He was a from Church Point, LA. He passed away in 2002 never really telling us much about his experience there. Sometimes he would let thing slip that were totally different then what his letters said. I have the letters he wrote to us and I've been reading them and trying to preserve them. In some he describes being in hell and others trying to keep my mom from worrying he would tell her to think of it as a vacation. Please if anyone knew him can you contact me. His life after Viet Nam was very difficult, the boy that left the cotton fields of Louisiana came home from Viet Nam a troubled man.

To all my Veteran Brothers and Sisters
I have access to newspaper archives and I can find newspaper articles about attacks that took place in Viet Nam. I found articles for my PTSD claim about attacks at Nha Trang in 1969 that helped me win my claim award of 100%.
I also helped many Viet Nam Veteran brothers with newspaper articles for proof of stressors for their PTSD claims with the VA.
I DO THIS FREE FOR ANYONE THAT NEEDS MY HELP!
I would like to help your members find newspaper articles about attacks in Vietnam that have affected them.
PLEASE INFORM YOUR MEMBERS OF MY SERVICE. If anyone is interested: I NEED TO KNOW THE FOLLOWING
1. Where you were stationed in Viet Nam and any TDY stations you may have been assigned to.
2. The exact date you arrived in Viet Nam and what date you left. ( day / month / year ).
3. Any incident that you can remember, and dates that they occurred (would be helpful, but not necessary).
Please view my website: http://www.vietnam-ptsd-help.com
Email me at: email@example.com or call 1-973-691-1809 with any information you may have and I’ll start searching the newspaper archives for your articles!
PLEASE POST MY WEBSITE ON YOUR WEBSITE’S LINK PAGE.

Hi. I'm a civilian born in 1962. I'm a writer, writing an essay that will hopefully be published in The Good Men Project. My essay is inspired by the incredible personal trials and survival skills of my friend with PTSD, jungle rot and sleepless nights. This man was at Desert Storm, but when I was listening to him, he continued to reference Viet Nam in one way or another, which disturbed me. His references to that war drove me to write about the goodness of him enveloping his survival; he also helped me accomplish something I wouldn't have been able to do without his generosity. The two words "Viet Nam" have been in my life - all my life - even without any immediate family members who are veterans of the Viet Nam War. I don't think I began to be sensitive to anything from this thread of significance until now. Thank you for this web site.
Peace - Dee
