SP packs..........

A friend gave me some magazines about the Viet Nam war and on one of the pages was a photo of guys taking cartons of cigarettes, candy, and other item out of a big cardboard box with big black "SP" letters on it. The caption said it was a "Sundries Package" being shared by the me...

Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

Well, I guess that's one way to get around the fact that his Vietnam stories were proven to be lies,
just say some of the book is fiction.... :roll:

I just looked at his facebook page and I could find no mention of his book anywhere.

Re: 50th anneversary January 12th, 1969 Cai Nua

That day in January was before I came out to the 6/31st, I was still in the Artillery unit at that time. Although there is a slim possibility we fired support for you guys that day, I'll never know because we never knew what we were firing at, or for who. FDC knew who and what, but us guys on the gu...

Re: New names for the obituary list

In the latest 31st Regiment newsletter from last month, there are several pages of deceased.
The Assoc. seems to be trying to update their database, although most are from Korea, there are RVN too.

Re: Arguments I get into on facebook

I ended up in Hawaii and us 9th Div leftovers formed the 4th BDE of the 25th Div. But I missed the deactivation ceremony as I was home on leave from Sept 16 to Oct 14 '69. As for Facebook, I do like to needle my liberal friends. Have had my share of arguments, but if they get too carried away my la...

Re: The not living up to our values world

That would be great if they stop in Mexico, and no one gets hurt, a win-win.
I see that some militia groups are saying they will go to the border to "help" stop them,
that would not end well....... :shock:

Re: The not living up to our values world

It seems that we don't do a very good job of living up to our values, yet our government seems to expect the rest of the world to live up to them. So the Saudi's killed that guy, they have a hit squad, we have a hit squad called the Navy Seals..... just ask bin Laden..... oh wait, never mind. I'm n...

Re: The Republican Presidents painting on Trump's wall

And if you enlarge it, I can see at least 9 other Presidents in the background. Not sure who the woman is, my guess is Michele Bachmann (R) that ran for President in 2012. I think they are laughing at how Hillary thought she was so sure to win. Maybe I will print this and put it on the wall, all my...

Re: What was said then...January 4, 1970

His brother certainly had a higher opinion of the ARVNs than I did.... :roll:
And unless his brother finished his tour in VN, how did he get home on leave to
the States. I thought the closest you get to States on leave was to Hawaii.

I didn't get a Good Conduct back then, but did get 3 ArComs, 2 with "V" device. There is only 1 on my DD214, because the other 2 have my Social Security number wrong, but my serial number is right.... whatever. I do have the paper orders for all 3, so I can prove they are real, but prove ...

I sent for them several years ago and they included a Good Conduct Medal, with orders, that
wasn't listed on my DD-214.

Robert, you got a Good Conduct Medal after 2 years and I didn't get one after 3 years... guess you must

Re: Another 6/31st reunion?

Even though I haven't always agreed with the Association, it's too bad that they had to
cancel their reunion. I'm sure many were looking forward to it and I hope they have better
luck next year. Maybe they should consider the West Coast since we have very few weather
extremes out here...... :D
