Please forgive my mispellings of Vietnamese cities and bases. Served in Vietnam 67-68, from Ton San Nuit to Tuy Hoa and Long Bien. 151st Transportation Company. Best memories: fine, brave, real Americans doing our best to survive and make a difference somehow; Calling home on the "MARS" phone to talk to Mom and Dad and my best girl; Coming back from a long convoy and passing through the wire at base camp; Throwing a frisbee around the camp with my buddies, watching the Bob Hope show at Long Bien; Mail call and getting a letter, once getting a birthday cake from Mom with candles and iceing in a can to share with my hooch mates; R&R in Hawaii. Worst memories: mortar attacks, buddies hurt or worse; Tet Offensive, Tan Sa Nuit overrun, the Ammo dump at Long Bien blowing up all night, latrines backed up so bad the crap was ankle deep, mama sans stepping off distances in the camp for the VC mortars, baby sans offering themselves for a C ration or candy bar, long convoys in the constant rain during the rainy season riding shotgun on a duece & 1/2, sleeping in the mud with your head proped up on your helmet and your rifle inside your poncho lieing on top of you to keep it dry, coming home to go to college on the GI Bill to have fellow students and even professors shun you like a criminal or make ugly/ignorant remarks just loud enough for you to hear as you pass (baby killer), visiting the Vietnam memorial in DC when it was finally built, looking for friends names ... and finding them.., watching with tears streaming down your face as Moms and Dads and Wives with Children placing a flower or note to their lost son, husband, dad,.. and worst of all watching the fall of Saigon on TV, knowing that many of the good people you met were sure to die, and feeling that you had made very little real difference at all....

I'm his daughter SHARON WEBB; I dont know much about him cause he died on Apirl 5, 1991 (when I was 10 yrs old). I'm nerves to ask my mom about him. He would have been 60 yrs old this year. If any one knew him or of him I would really LOVE to hear about him. firstname.lastname@example.org THANK YOU!

Hello Bill Batho, Your e-mail address was not translated well by me and this got bounced:
I was in Cu Chi a little after you (Jan ''70) and served in the HHD(S-1) of the 86th Signal BN. Our CO was Lt Col. William Renner, Maj Richards was 2nd(S-2) in command, Mr. Hannsberry (?) a CW? was the adjutant. A great little Italian, a CSM was in our office, not sure what he did, but everyone, including the CO respected him. Will never forget his call to "Attention" when Renner would walk in, but I can't remember his name, unless it was something like Veecee,, but that might have been a D.I. back in El Paso, Tx.
After a few weeks, of clerk-typing, I also started bar tending at the Officers' Club. I could have been a VC with heated pizzas my main weapon that no one suffered major damage from, but they only ordered one. I was the friend of Frozen Pizzas.
Soon, In April, I was shipped to My Tho(10th Sig Co) to relearn my MOS and a bit about Comm Centers and then to Ben Tre where the 535th Signal Co had a small detachment providing signal services. Then, I began being an 05C20, RTTO, but in a Comm center. Someone told me that MOS, but I've forgotten. On August 18, while returning from Saigon after entering the edges of Ben Tre, I was injured, put into a coma, and sent home .... the war was over for me.
The only other Signal Company I knew about in Cu Chi was the 125th Sig, which belonged to the 25th Infantry Div.
Please tell me a bit about your stay in the Land of Enchantment, i.e., not NM, but I enjoy skiing there. Do you remember the Mail Clerk?
The first thing I recall doing as a Clerk-typist was making and running a steno graph of the E-5 Study questions for those going before the E-5 Board. All that is remembered about them is the first question and answer
Please supply the answer to 1. What is the purpose of the Army? and I'll tell you what you should have said. Your Pay grade or rank is not in danger. I had a Secret Clearance and know how to keep a secret. Hint: the answer is pragmatic and specific

I was in the Co.B 36th signal Bn. at cu chi from Feb68 Sept69 .Would like hear from someone
maafa21.com in your DVD collection ?
God bless you with Peace, Matthew Karl
P. S. Please be Pro-Life-choice. Choice's great, but life is the sine qua
non of each and every choice, so, your life, mine, all lives are gifts
to you, me, each other and when holy to the Sine Qua Non. Amen.
