Backup for the Backup

Noah, Could we please have a backup defined for the backup...just in case we need it? I am not sure that 30 rooms will be enough. In using "google" to check for other hotels in the area, it appears that the only one that I could find, in addition to the Wingate, was the ESA Columbus-Bradley Park, an...

Rex Rumfelt has located Capt Quisenberry. Any of you guys close enough to him to convince him to attend the reunion? We have his cell phone number.

We are trying to reach Capt Quisenberry concerning the reunion, but no luck to-date. We have done a SS# check and have mailed letters to all the addresses. Some came back as wrong address....some did not come back. We are still looking. If any of you are willing to make a few phone calls to possible...

Pin

Niner,

Pin looks great. I would certainly buy one, and I'll also send you a contribution for the website. Thanks to both you and your son for all of your hard work! This is certainly the best website ("hands-down") out there for us 6/31st guys.

Hi Vern,<br> <br> Looks like another 2 - 3 months for the paperwork at this end. After that, assuming everything goes ok, she will be given an interview in Saigon at our US consulate. They will give her a list of things to do....more paperwork and a physical. From what I understand, this can be done...

Ghosts of Rwanda

Did any of you guys watch the documentary last night about the 1993 genocide in Rwanda? The USA and UN should hang their heads in shame. 1 million, mostly unarmed, men, women and children slaughtered as the USA and UN refused to do anything. It was embarrassing to see our government officials lyingl...

Niner DI, I'll get a picture of this area when I go back later this year, but the old fire base is now a large field where the kids play soccer, volleyball, and practice karate. They were having a very large karate class there during one of my trips. Along the road are some small businesses...mainly...

Found a website with all the history and info on the M79.

I can't envision anyone being able to carry both an M79 and an M16.....but maybe they did...and no one in my platoon carried a pistol...well, every now and then I would have an M60 machinegunner who would carry one for a while.....but us...

Automatic Rifleman

I had one Lt who directed our basic riflemen to fire semi-automatic unless otherwise directed. He had specific riflemen defined as the Automatic Riflemen and these guys always fired auto. This experiment was, however, short-lived, because after firing several magazines fully automatic, we experinced...

Marriage

Niner,

I am sure that you already know...but just in case you don't. The girl in the header picture on the left top is Tam (Barbara). She had told me that she was 19 years old...at this point in time, she was really 14 or 15.
