Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

It was for entertainment only alright. He entertained a lot of people over the years at a lot of events with it. Only trouble is he never said he was making it all up at any of them that I'm aware of. Bet a bunch of his numerous awards depended to at least a large extent on bestowers mistakenly beli...

Three additions to the KIA list now added

Jerry White, after going through his records noted three names that I felt should be added to our Wall page. The three had served in the 6th of the 31st but were reassigned to different 9th Division units as well as one man who died in a subsequent Division assignment. The three names are listed at ...

Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

I had to spend the five bucks and see what his Barnes and Noble version was. And I left this review: Having served with Alpha Company 6th of the 31st Infantry, 9th Division in Vietnam, the same company Urban’s DD214 shows a penciled in assignment to, it is good to see that Urban apologizes in the be...

Re: SP packs..........

I suspect they came from the same people that provided the C rations. I do know by the time I got to them all that were left were unfiltered Camels and Pall Malls. I remember the Pall Malls were in a red package and the favorite name for them were "red balls". I think that was about what c...

Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

His book is on Barnes & Noble too. Same $4.99. No reviews at the moment. It's listed as fiction the same way as the publisher site. The Barnes & Noble blurb on what it's about doesn't mention anything about Miyares war history or war stories. Looking at the cover it looks like the whole book...

Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

31st Regiment and Siberia

I saw this offering on ebay of a Regiment organization day pamphlet from 1935. One of the historical notes was about the Siberian expedition when the Regiment was only about 3 years old. It landed in the Siberian AO from the China side on August 21, 1918. It's first casualty was eight days later. Th...

It was worse than that. He had his picture in a college yearbook 35 years ago as either a KKK guy or a white guy in blac...
