In reference to the VFW article on The Battle of Bong Trang. My neighbor is letting me barrow his VFW magazine. I have not read it as of yet. Its a long article. But I know it will be some very intense reading. A lot of Medals were awarded. Patton

This site is a wide open site. Not secure. If you put your correct email address in when you posted, guys can contact you back channel. it does take a day or so though, as the email goes thru the Association. Post phone numbers at your own risk.

The only info i have found was the date of his death, 08-26-66 and the location, Bong Trang, South Vietnam, Binh Duong Province. Im looking for anyone who had served with him, or remembers him at all. I would like to talk to them if possible. Thanks

BCC no emails go through the association first, they go directly to the message board. Where did you ever get that idea?

I thought the association handled the message board.

BCC, the Association does handle the message board since it is part of the Association's website. But we are very laisez faire. I don't thing we've addressed anything in over two years. All together, I think we may have become involved three or four times. Only the administrators of the site can access a posters email on the message board. Part of the Message Board that was picked why back when has the feature where if you post your email then others are enabled to reach you THROUGH the board. Your email is not disclosed unless you respond to the email that has been delivered to you automatically by that feature. So posting your email only opens you up to receiving emails from those who use this MB. It is not revealed. I just send an article on Bong Trang to Jurgen Wijnands via the message board
