Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

Hello San Diego, CA: Is there no news person or news organization in the San Diego area with enough guts to expose Urban Miyares? Apparently people in the San Diego area have so "bought into" his tales that they won't even take the time to request a copy of his military records, per the Fr...

Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

Niner...since by Urban's own admission, he actually spent only 2 days with his platoon before ending up in the Saigon hospital with a diabetic coma, it must have been a "one night stand".

Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

You're not going to believe this but in doing a Google Search I stumbled across a book that has some Urban Miyares BS in it. I found the book on Amazon and made my review as to pages 214 - 216. Amazon will review my review before posting...I doubt that they will post it since they can see that I did...

Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

When you 6/31st Brothers have time, please check out the numerous Urban Miyares videos on YouTube. I have attempted, over the last few years, to make comments under all of his videos that mention his Vietnam experience. If I have missed any....please let me know.

Luckily Niner had located someone who was able to convert Mac's grid coordinates to Google Earth coordinates thus making it ea...

Randy.......as you probably already know...Lt Richard Dorn (2nd platoon/1969) visited us for a week in March. He stayed in a nice hotel in My Tho (($50 a night) and my sons and I picked him up each morning on my son's motorcycles to take him around the old AO. You would always be welcome.
