Nice talking to you the other day, I served with your dad and was there when he was Killed.

I was told by our CO Cpt Merriwether that he was recommended for the Medal of Honor.

Sgt Rock, Was a nickname His real Name is Sgt James Nelson, I had lunch with him last year and he lives in Ky. Sgt Nelson was on the ambush when your Dad was KIA.

He spoke of How Heroic and Brave you Dad was.

We all called your Dad , Tennessee as you mention , He was a great Soldier and I was honored to call him my friend, and to have served with him.

Sgt Nelson has moved somewhere else in Ky, I will try to track him down.

Best Wishes

Looking for family or friend of Jesse Frey. KIA 2/25/1970. I was with him when he died. Jesse, I hope you know that you're more than just a friend, but a special brother. It was so easy sharing thoughts and feelings with you, because we just naturally seem to relate and understand each other. When I think of you, I remember looking back over the pains and joys that we seen each other through and all the reassuring times day by day. Knowing, I count on you, because you were always there for me and I was there for you. Jesse, having you as a friend and brother, I've learned many valuable things, though nothing means as much as knowing that you are my brother and friend. Thirty-five years later I still remember our love for each other. Thank-you.

I am trying to track down Thomas E. O'Neil, served in G Trp/2nd Sqdn in 1971. Tommy was from Conn. but his last listing here (1995)simply lists APO, AE and I have no idea what that means. Tommy and I were good friends and had a lot of fun at Vung Tau (sp?) and he always had my back. He was a Sheridan driver, had a wife and two kids at home. Please contact me if you know how I can reach Tommy-haven't seen or heard from him since I went home in 10/71.

I am writing to see if anyone can help me. My father was in Vietnam and he came home but left alot of friends behind I know. I am going to visit the mobile Vietnam Wall (the replica) with my kids. I ask my dad about this but some of it is still too hard. My father is (was then) SP/5 James D. (Willie) Williams. The one name he remembers is a SSG(?) Hudson who he said was killed in the summer of 1967. He said that Mr.Hudson was killed when his vehicle ran over a "mine"(he used a differant term but it was a type of mine). I am looking for information to tell my daughter about a friend of his to help her realize how real this really was. I want her to know the sacrafice that each person there had to give, those that lost their lives and those like my dad that lost friends and alot of nights and days to the nightmares. I want her to know that they all deserve our respect but having that name of her Grandpa's friend will help her see teh real people involved. Thank you for your time and help and thank you to all who fought & still fight for us. Hope

Looking for anyone who can tell me about my brother LT JONATHAN PAUL HASH. Jonathan was in country almost exactly one month when he was killed on Aug 12,1969. Jonathan was 6 foot 4 inches and had a size 16 boot. I understand that is large for a tanker. I was ten when he died. I answered the door, when the military informed us. He was my greatest hero. The casket was closed. I still find it difficult to believe he's gone. He has two nephews that bear his name. Both went into the service. My son is in Iraq.

I am trying to find out information on Jack McCann from anyone who knew my dad or was in the area when he was killed. I was 10 months old and did not know him and would like to speak or email with someone who did. He was KIA on Dec. 27, 1970 in Binh Duong. I do know he was an E5.I was told it was his 3rd or 4th tour, also he was in a truck that hit a mine(I was told 2nd and 3rd hand). Does anyone know the details of how he was killed, or did he have a nickname? I am 34yo and have gone too long without knowing. Thanks to anyone who can give me any info.

I am looking for anyone that knew my father Robert Graham Curl. He was KIA 12/2/69 in the province of Phuoc Long. I never knew my father, I was almost 3 years old when he was killed. He is a stranger that I know from pictures. I am now 37 years old and with a child of my own and long to speak with anyone that knew him or was with him on the day he died. My mother passed away and all the answers to the many questions that I have of him passed away with her. I basically know his name, that he was from Walled Lake Michigan and he was only 24 years old when he died. He was a SSGT with the 11th Armored Calvary Regiment F Troop 2nd Squadron. Any information you might have would be greatly appreciated. 813-948-4863

Victoria, According to our records, your father was assigned to 919th Engineer's attached to 11th Cavalry. If you check the unit links on this website you will find a 919th Engr link. There are a number of pictures there and you may have better luck finding someone who knew your father.

My cousin "Larry Joseph Loncon" 1st Cav medic entered VietNam 11-21-69 and was KIA 4-27-70 in the Phuoc Long province. Unresolved closure with impersonal official reports. I would like to know more, from real people. For me it was frustrating as a teen to watch the news and see the folded flags and not be old enough to go and help, I volunteered a month after 17 in 76 but it was over, I wasn't there but I still care. We can't all be heroes or even be sure we have made a difference but at least you tried and you have survived, that is enough. Help us remember the others. Thanks

My father, Thomas William Skiles, was a Warrant Officer, First Class, in the Air Cavalry Troop, 2nd Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment. He is the soldier mentioned in Brigadier General Tucker's speech at a recent reunion. He was killed when I was three years old. I am 34 now, married to a beautiful woman, and we have an 11 month old daughter, who I am sure would be the apple of her Grandpa's eye had he survived Viet Nam. I am writing this message because, although my dad was killed in this war, he very much lives on through myself and my family. There isn't a day that goes by when I don't think of him and wish I would have known him. If you knew my father and saw me, you would probably do a double take, because I look just like him. I hope that my message brings hope to those veterans who lost so many people close to them. I have struggled much to come to terms with my father's death, but have come to learn that we continue to live in the hearts and memories of those who knew us. I find peace in hearing the memories of my dad from those who knew him. I find immense comfort in raising his Grand-daughter with the love I know he had for me. If anyone knew my father and would like to share any memories of him, please e-mail me. I have the utmost respect for you veterans. Peace. Tom Skiles

my twin brother kenneth "babe" cushen was in the 11th cav during 1967. he was kia on 12/15/67 somewhere near coo che (spelling ?). He was in a tank and was the only one killed out of the crew who were with him, I always wondered how the other guys made out, I know they were seriously injured also. "babe" was in troop A he was a spec 4 and he was a short-timer at the time of his death. I was also in the Army, serving in Ft. Huachuca, Ariz. at the time. He had volunteered for this last mission before his r&r. I think this is a great thing you are doing with this reunion and this web site. please someone let me know how I can support this. Thanks Michael "moe" Cushen past SGT E-5 Army 1966-1968

If any one knows anything about him or know how I would find out what he did and what metals he had. Please let me know.

My husband, Capt James M Atchison was a pilot with the 11th from 4 Oct, 1969 until his death, 12 April 1970. If you knew him during that time, please feel free to contact me @ trevaw@paracletepress,com. Jim and I had 2 daughters, one of whom was born while he was in Nam so did not get to meet him -- his older daughter was 3 1/2 at the time of his death. The younger daughter would especially like to know more about her father (she is now a nun). She has questions about his 6+ months in the war. Her feelings for her father are quite strong - she loves and cares for a man who is a stranger to her - there are no memories for her -even in her subconcious--to build on. Learning more about who he was helps her connect with him and she would appreciate anything you might know about him. My older daughter now has 2 young sons--the 3 1/2 yr old has his grandfather's name of James for his middle name and his mother wants to also know more about Jim so she can share with Aaron more about his grandfather - and eventually with her brand new son, Sean. This daughter taught American history for a few years and 1 year had the students start with this country's current history, then move backwards so they could study our involvement in Viet Nam. Both of my daughters are proud of their father's effort in Nam and would appreciate anything you could share with them - anything -about their dad. Thank-you

I just found this site. My husband served in Viet Nam and was under attack on April 13, 1969 in south Viet Nam in the province of Tay Ninh. I know two names that was in his unit, Bruce Ervin Johnson and Larry Bruce Barfield. There was another, I think the name was Cope, maybe John, from California. My husband did survive the attack and is interested in finding John. My husband is Eldred R. Schrader. They named the APC "Miss Kitty", and he was the driver, they called him "Festus". Would welcome information. Now that we have found this site, he will be joining you.

01/24/2002 KHANH HOA PROVINCE, 11/13/1969: A family member of mine, STEVEN SKELLY, then in November 1969, a Specialist 4 with the U.S. Army's 1st Logistical Command, was, I have read (and am told) a CASUALTY as a driver of a medium transport truck, enroute from CAM RANH BAY, VIETNAM overland and inland to BAN ME THUOT CITY, VIETNAM. Upland on the highway route from NINH HOA, VIETNAM heading & bypassing the DUC MY HOT SPRINGS area, the convoy on QL #21, (or maybe QL #26), at bridge #13, (or perhaps bridge #14) was where the ACTION DUTY happened, from what I am told by someone who was supposedly an actual eyewitness (whom has confirmatively stated that he was one of the first there on the scene of the accident/mishap). That above information, is from a person identified (via MY telephone communications to GRAND PRAIRIE, TEXAS, U.S.A.) as PAUL J. BOWES himself. By telephone, PAUL BOWES confirmed that he himself was indeed the first person on the scene to try to SAVE my family members life. This after the truck my family member was driving fell about 15 feet into a streambed below, after attempting to go through a detour at the bridge #13, or bridge #14 area. Shortly before, or after this, an enemy ambush in the immediate bridge area was spoken of by PAUL BOWES to me, during my telephone conversation to him personally. STEVEN SKELLY was supposedly so tightly pinned into the cab underwater, his head was supposedly pinned/submerged/immersed in water. STEVEN'S immediate passenger, FLANDERS CLEMONS, a Specialist 5, a negro, was also pinned, but above water. BOWES & CLEMONS both tried to no avail to get SKELLY'S head out of the water, but with no known success(es). I myself was just past age 2 by no more than 1 month when all of the above events transpired. However, I am told and lead to beleive that my family member, STEVEN SKELLY died from drowning on that day, 11/13/1969. PAUL BOWES, by telephone, spoke and described (to me) how he tried to help save the life of my family member...by trying to blow air through an empty/open gun barrel which was administered orally to STEVEN, while his head was underwater. PAUL BOWES also made mention of the likelihood that STEVEN may have panicked while underwater, him knowing of the dangerous ambush. PAUL BOWES mentioned that he himself survived two clips of enemy fire that impaled/grazed him up front somewhere. There were about 4 known passengers total in the truck. PAUL BOWES was NOT one of them, but he was from the truck directly in front of SKELLY in the convoy procession, when the enemy ambushed trucks containing fuel bladders. FINALLY: Did any of you serve duty with STEVEN SKELLY? If you knew him, or knew of any of these events (and the individuals involved (passengers perhaps), PLEASE, let me KNOW your version as you KNOW it to be the TRUTH.

If there is anyone out there who knew him I would love to hear from you. I have posted a page for him on the Virtual Wall but have very little information about his life in the Army especially the events about the mission he was on when he was shot down. My goal is to be able to have information available at a place where anyone can go to find out about one of the true heroe's in our family. If you knew Jim Donahue and can pass along anything about his life I would appreciate hearing from you at djmike1983@yahoo.com. Thank you for your help. Respectfully...Mike Reading.

Hi, I am trying to find out more information about my uncle Roger Bernard Schaefer and his tour in Vietnam. He was killed on November 25, 1969, in Binh Long, South Vietnam. He was a medic with the 11th Armored Cavalry. His tour began December, 16, 1968. Does anyone know what troop he was in; or better yet, does anyone remember him?

I have been trying to locate the Family of SGT Daniel Floyd West, who was Killed In Action in Vietnam. He had brother's named Roy and Thomas. His fathers name was Luis. They lived in Las Vegas Nevada when Daniel enlisted in the Army. Dan had attended Western High School. SGT West is buried in the Palm Cemetary just north of the Downtown Area in Las Vegas. At the 1997 Reunion in Las Vegas, we dedicated a plaque to SGT West, which is now mounted on the wall outside of 3rd Squadron Headquarters in the Armory North of Nellis Air Force Base in North Las Vegas.

2/3/2001 10:59:26 AM My father is SSgt/Interpreter Nguyen Quang Tri (ARVN). He is 52 years old and works for SamSung in Binh Duong Province. He served for 3rd Sqd. 11th ACR. He told me many stories about his old unit which he had served, under command of Col. Patton.
My father worked for 2nd Sqd. E, G, and F troops and H Co. Also HHT 3rd Sqd., 541st MID of 11th ACR. He was often on missions (Med Cap) with doctor Cpt. Sandrock and Medic Sam (forget last name). Now, my father wants to know these men.
My fatherís wants to know about F troop commander Cpt. McAdam (KIA). He was shot on helicopter by VC sniper. He also wants to know about : Cpt. Philpot (May be wrong spelling the name) E troop Co., Cpt. Hudson G Troop Co., Maj. Melton 541st MID Co., Cpt. Petefish 541st MID Staff, 1st Lt. Knepper 541st MID Staff.
Who was the ARVN interpreter for K Troop from 1968 to 1969? He remembers SFC Sanh as interpreter for HHT 3/11th now believed to be in US. Look at all of your pictures for over 30 years ago, my father wants to cry when he imagines of the past. Please help my father find these men.
Best Regards Nguyen - Truong - Thinh ( Vietnam )

In the short time that I knew Sgt Charles Lee Rogers, we had become good friends. I was not physically present when Sgt Rogers was killed but was flying command and control over the units on the ground. We were in the area called the "iron triangle". I was a helicopter pilot and Sgt Rogers had volunteered to be a tunnel rat. Since I flew long days, Sgt Rogers looked out for me if I didn't get back in time to get hot food when we were lucky enough to have it. On the day that Sgt Rogers was killed, one of the units had discovered a tunnel network. Sgt Rogers crawled into the tunnel to check out what was there. Two viet cong were in the tunnel and shot and killed him. The troops on the ground flushed the two viet cong out of the tunnels and killed them. One of them was carrying an M-l carbine. It was the only weapon that was found, so they assumed it was the weapon that was used to kill Sgt Rogers. The troop commander knew that Sgt Rogers and I were friends so he called me on the radio and told me what had happened. He asked me if I wanted the M-1 carbine. I still have it today. It is in a gun cabinet in my bedroom. Each time I look at it, I remember Sgt Rogers. I lost a good friend that day.

I am the sister of Roger Lee Byus who was killed at Phuoc Long, South Vietnam on November 24, 1969. His tour of duty began there on October 23, 1969. He was 20 years old and from Winfield, West Virginia. We were told that he was on a volunteer mission and was killed by mortar. I would very much like to locate someone who knew Roger during his short time of duty in Vietnam. Perhaps contact with someone who was with him can help diminish the pain and agony that we, his family, have suffered for over 30 years from having not known what actually happened, if he died alone. We will always love him and he will never be forgotten by his family.

Black Horse Platoon....have no idea about any kind of Troop????? Please if you can help me figure out what to look for let me know I will try to get the info needed from my mother, who really lost her mind when my dad passed away in 1990. I know at one time she had his discharge papers
I do have the purple heart he received in my safety deposit box. I know on his uniform he had the patch of the black horse on it. I can faintly remember mom telling me about him getting injured while in combat. I know it was on August 28, 1968. Something about a C.O. transport running over a mine and blowing up, killing the C.O. and dad crawled into a fox hole then was shot during mortar fire in the head....helicopter guys thought he was dead...dad opened his eyes and said he was a live and he could make it....sent to Saigon hospital then shipped back home never to walk again. This is all I can really remember. If you have any other information I would appreciate it.

05/19/2001 Survivors, A family member of mine, STEVEN SKELLY, who was SUPPOSEDLY with the 11th ACR, 2nd Squadron at one time, and also Company 'H' (Hell's Henchmen), and the 670th Transportation Company...was, I am told, a casualty as a driver of a medium truck enroute from Cam Ranh Bay inland to Ban Me Thuot City, Vietnam. QL #21, at Bridge #13, or Bridge #14, is where the action took place, from what I am told by actual witnesses who were there on the scene. The casualty happened on NOVEMBER 13th, 1969. I was told that PAUL BOWES, was the first one on the scene to try to save my family members life, after the truck my family member was driving fell about 15 feet into a streambed below, after going through a detour at the bridge area. Shortly after this, an ambush in the immediate bridge area was reported by MR. PAUL BOWES. My family member, STEVEN SKELLY, a Specialist 4 with the U.S. Army's 670th Transportation Company, was supposedly tightly pinned into the cab of the truck he was driving, and that his head was supposedly pinned underwater. His immediate passenger, SP. 5 FLANDERS CLEMONS, was also pinned, but above water. BOWES and CLEMONS tried to no avail to get SKELLYS head out of the water, but with no success...supposedly. NOTE: I am using the word "supposedly" as I know any of the above as a proven fact, since I was only about age 2 at that time in my life, and still at home, in the United States of America (Moorpark, CA.). However, I am told that my family member, STEVEN SKELLY, died from drowning. BOWES has told me also that he himself supposedly tried to blow air into my family members mouth through an open gun barrel, to try to save his life. Also, there were about a total of four passengers in the truck, and the names of them are known as: FLANDERS CLEMONS, SP. 5; 422-36-0699; Negro; Age: 37, 124th Transportation Company; APO 96312 (1st Log. Comd.): DATE OF DEATH/DECEASED MARCH 10th, 2001. JAMES R. MCMILLAN, PFC; 219-52-7350; Caucasian; Age: 19, Company 'B' USA Depot; APO 96312 (1st Log. Comd.). JOHN W. CORCORAN, SP. 4; 545-74-2522; Caucasian; Age: 20, 128th Signal Company; APO 96312 (1st Log. Comd.). ROSS E. MCCLENACHAN, SP. 4, 203-38-3011; Caucasian; Age: 19, Company 'B' USA DEPOT; APO 96312 (1st Log. Comd.). DATE OF DEATH/DECEASED: Year 1992. DID ANY OF YOU KNOW MY FAMILY MEMBER: S T E V E N S K E L L Y If you knew him, or knew of any of these events and the individuals who were involved in the mishap described above, I would like to hear from you by e-mail at: Fluxhorse@webtv.net Thank you for your patience in reading all of this message containing thorough and highly specific information. The actual mishap, once again I will state...occured on NOVEMBER 13th, 1969, on QL #21, northwestbound at vicinity of Bridge #13, and/or Bridge #14, heading toward the inland village/city of Ban Me Thuot, Vietnam. Informatively, Mr. Chrisven Skelly Fluxhorse@webtv.net END.
