I am a 26 year old Lance Corporal in the United States Marine Corps, my father was a Specialist 4 in the Army and he did a tour in Vietnam. Some Americans may not have supported what all you guys did while in a time of war, but as the son of a vet and a brother in arms, I say THANK YOU! Thank you for doing what you thought was right and having the fortitude to fight for your country when you were called on to do so. I have always been fascinated with the story of the Vietnam war, and it seems like I learn something new everyday. I know it wasn't easy for some of you to come back home to a country that didn't recognize or realize the importance or principal of the duties you performed, it wasn't even the greatest of homecomings, to come home and have people spit on you and call you a baby killer. But again, from a young "Devil Dog" to ALL my brothers in arms, no matter what service, WELCOME HOME! I personally thank each one of you for being the example to me that hopefully I am to those who come along when I'm gone.

I was assigned, to the 40th Signal battalion in 1967/1968. I met a great group of Lineman, I suppose most of them are hot stickers by now, work for PG&E (God Bless Them.) I've always been a little shit with a big heart, but they said I could'nt lean out far enough on the pole. So I went to work for LMMS, I've been working to protect our kid's, in any way I can since 1975. I remember how scared I was getting shot, at or mortared. I was 19 and growing up fast! Maybe too, fast!!!
GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS!!!
Good Luck Men!

I was in Vietnam from Jan 67 to Jan 68 with HHB,2nd Bn 19th ARTY, 1st CAV DIV. I was in Bn FDC. Its been a long time and I've forgotten most of the names. Would like to hear from anyone who might remember me. When I left LTC Gillespie was BC, CPT Stadler was "I think" FDO, and LT Lambert also worked in the FDC section. In late 85 I saw a taped interview with LTC Gillespie and talked with then BG Stadler. If any of you 229th AVN guys ever landed at LZ English " late 67 into 68" I was one of the ones who built the A-frame hooch. Donohue (spelling) do you remember the sniper taking a shot at us while we were servicing the generators? GLENN, thanks for your friendship all these years, I'm sorry I have not been the friend to you You were to me. Would love to hear from any 229th AVN guys if you remember seeing the A Frame hooch. Glenn and I built it out of ammo boxes we helped unload at the ammo dump.
