when i was flying onto Hill 51 on a USMC very (too) slow 34 in May of 1967, i almost fell out the door/hatch, the pilot came down in tight circles, snipers...when i got to delta company, 1/5, the platoon sgt said he was outta there cuz his eardrums were busted the night before, from concussion, and 2 corpsmen were killed also, plus some other guys, when i was @ chu lai the nite b4, we got called outta the rack as a stretcher bearers for wounded marines coming in, the guy i carried was a gunny, i think, throat shot, it sucked BIG time, even bigger when i found out the medivacs were from D 1/5 ... the hill was A SMALL HILL ... no wire, no sandbags, no nothing, only the Gunny bustin' ass to ... whatever, "improve" our position, just a bunch of sweating, pissed off and somewhat scared jarheads ... a lot of guys were sick, thought it may have something 2 do with a well in the vill ... one of the squads sent a fire team down 2 check it out after dark, they found some local lady squatting over the well pissing into it, this is just what i heard, the water quality improved
almost immediately, aloha!!!

I am trying to find members of the FIRST BATTALION (MECHANIZED) FIFTH INFANTRY TWENTY-FIFTH INFANTRY DIVISION IN THE VIET NAM WAR CO B 1968. MY UNCLE PAUL E. MCGINNESS WAS KILLED IN ACTION. HERE IS AN EXERPT FROM THE WEB SITE:
On October 19, 1968, at 1115 hours, while sweeping through an area south of the Ben Cui Rubber Plantation at XT 456419, one Bobcat from Company B was killed and another was wounded when a booby trapped RPG round was detonated. About 500 meters to the west, the Recon Platoon located a small food and ammunition cache.
I am just trying to learn more about him and the day he sacrficed his life for our country.
Thanks Dan McGinness

I am a Vietnam Vet trying to help a 34 year old woman find her father. She was born to a Vietnamese mother in 1971 in Vietnam. Her father was stationed with U.S. Army at Dong Ha in 1970-71 possibly with the 8th Bn 4th Artillery. He was called "Benny" and may have been a mechanic. Please email me if you have any information. She only wants to find him. Nothing more. She is a U.S. citizen and came to the U.S. in 1991.

1st ID Vietnam, 68-70; TDYwith MACV, CMAC, SOG, 1st Cav etc, & various RVN units in III Corp with time in II & IV - I think - didn't always know where they dropped me off. Sometimes they didn't know either. Fortunately it was generally a friendly armed group that tripped over my team. Did so much TDY that my records (what little was left of them) had not a mark on them. The only documents other than my nearly blank 201 file were a couple of pages showing leave and a sheet or two from pay records. The clerk was a bit startled; he said I was virtually invisible to the system. If I wasn't standing right there in front of him he wouldn't have know I had been incountry. Just another day in the life; though I can't prove it.
