Hi, My name is Grey Brill   (11th cav 69-70) and I married my war story. Lan was from An Loc. She and her older sister Mai worked in the kitchen for 1/2 in Lai Khe and Dau Tang before Lan left Dau Tang and returned to An Loc because of all the rocket attacks. During one attack someone saved her life by making sure she got into the bunker before he did. His name or nickname was Virginia and she thinks he was  a postal clerk. She would like to thank him if I can find him. Also an officer named Hubert (?) who was medivaced due to losing a leg to a mine. Thanks for any help. Welcome home and thanks for your service

Grey

I was at Dau Tieng June 1969 to January 1970.

I don't recall a solider called Virginia nor an officer named Hubert.

Sorry I can't help.

I did work with the 11TH ACR out of Quan Loi in April & May 1969.

Welcome home and thanks for your service.

Victor Company went to Vietnam in May 1967 wearing a black cravat, or scarf, embroidered with a small white kiwi, as part of the "formal" dress uniform.
Strictly speaking it was a non-standard item of uniform but at that time 1st Battalion RNZIR, the parent unit in Malaya, was not well known for wearing only standard authorised uniform. Its Commanding Officer at the time, Lieutenant Colonel Brian Matauru Poananga, was rather flexible in these matters.

In May 1966, the year before Vietnam, when the battalion relieved the 1st Battalion Durham Light Infantry at Balai Ringin in Sarawak (Borneo), the Durhams presented 1 RNZIR with four of their stable belts; the green belt with two horizontal red stripes. These were then worn by the 1 RNZIR Commanding Officer, Adjutant, Regimental Sergeant Major, and Orderly Officer. Eventually the DLI stable belts were aquired for the whole battalion, and became a standard, but still unauthorised, item of uniform.

It eventually became authorised uniform for the whole of the Regular Force of the Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment, which paved the way for the rest of the NZ Army to wear stable belts in Corps or Unit colours.

Similarly, 1 RNZIR adopted a dark green dacron uniform late '66 / early '67, and this too eventually became standard issue for the whole of the NZ Army.

In Borneo in 1966, the rifle companies wore coloured bands on their jungle hats as a means of recognising and identifying friendly forces in the jungle. The C Company band was black. As C Company, with D Company, formed the basis of the first Victor Company into Vietnam, black became the V Company colour, and the black cravat or scarf was designed.

The cravat was a common uniform embellishment in regiments in some armies, including the British Army, but not in the NZ Army.

On arrival in Vietnam the black cravat or scarf moved from being a formal dress item only, to an item worn on operations to distinguish Victor Company from the rest (mostly Australians). Our soldiers had the same flexible approach to uniform as their former Commanding Officer in Malaya. Of course this did not please the Australian commanders in Nui Dat, but that didn't influence matters in the least. It rarely did. So it was worn as a hat band or as a sweat rag, as the mood took the individual soldier.

Eventually, after some time in theatre, a recovered Viet Cong document was found to carry a warning to the Viet Cong to "beware of the black scarves".

Psychology is a most important ingredient of warfare, whether aimed at the enemy or the allies, or both.

These other guys are copy cats
They copied it because my dads company and its reputation
Rest are imposters
Beware of the black scarfs
That's that

Deployed with the 1/2 in 1965 as a platoon leader aboard the USNS Blatchford out of Oakland CA.  Arrived 21 days later in Vung Tau where we did a beach landing.  I can tell you all about what happened the first year the unit was in Viet Nam

Lou,

I don’t know where you got your casualty list from but it has incorrect information on it. The following were not with the 1st Battalion.

Washington James  A, 2/2
Tungate David         A,2/2
Cauley Aubrey         C, 2/2
Heaston Donald       C,2/2
Dumas Oliver           C,2/2

This can all be verified at any of the three links below, the first has very accurate information and the other two have been verified with the first.

I still have my Dads original black scarfe.. Has a 1/2 and C with arrow. I also have a certificate that said Dracula black scarf battalion. Dad never told me but someone wrote a good book called call sign Dracula. I'm trying to find out my Dads history. He passed in June of 2014. Best man I ever knew! Ken Burdick aka Birdie. RIP my angel. 101st aireborn 2nd infantry 1st battalion 2nd infantry. C-company. The VA clergy that did his funeral said think of Rambo and you'll have a good idea. Slacker's didn't get these kinds of medals. IDK but I'm proud of my Dad! AO took him from me. And its making the kids of Vets sick as well. The only story he told me about was his friend- brother John can't remember last name. Died in action. My Dad held him. Thank you for sharing your stories and Thank you for your service and welcome home! I did hear his terrible nightmares I will never forget! My hero My Dad!

I am the author of Call Sign Dracula.

So sorry about your dad.

Let me send you a free, signed copy of the book. Perhaps it will be a some value to you and you may see what many of us went through in Vietnam

My e-mail address is joefaira121@gmail.com.   Send me your address and a book will be mailed to you.

Sincerely,


Joe Fair

Hi Guys, My name is Bob Faubert. I am so grateful to have found this site. I hope that all of you are well. I was with A 1/2 November from March 1969 until January 1970. I carried ammo for Ski and the radio for the platoon sergeant. I was wounded at Quan Loi on May 12, 1969. Besides Ski, I was best friends with Dennis “Gator” Grey. Unfortunately, Dennis passed away last March due to agent orange/ prostrate cancer. He was a good friend and I will miss him very much. 

        Like many of you I struggled with PTSD for many years. I am doing much better now. If anyone knows Ski’s address, please let me know. I know that he lived in Detroit. Does anyone have a roster of the men of the company during that time. I am terrible with names. Mostly because of the PTSD. I blocked out many memories during that time.  

        I know that Bill Bedwell, I think that how he spelled his name, lived down near Disneyland here in California. One again, I am grateful for this site and wish all of you the best.

Bob Faubert

No I was not. I got in country on Dec 7th, 1967. I was at Quan Loi for a week or so and then was sent to the field. My first location was Song Ben which had just had a ground attack and I was a replacement. After several months in country I became an RTO. First I was with the squad then Company and last with the Battalion. Our commander at that time was Col. Fitzpatrick.

To Luther Patton I was in delta company 1967 till we got shipped around to alpha company we came over on the ussgieger troop ship as a packet group to form delta line companys. I was in the battle on Dec. 8 1967 when Paul dufford was killed on listening post I had taken out the ambush patrol out in front of him I was in the weapons squad and carried a m60. I received a bronze Star with a v device in that battle do you know any other guys from over there at that time I think I Feb or March they transferred 2/3rds of us around so I went to alpha com. I was wounded on April 1 of 68 and sent to Zion and then the 24th Eva. In long ben.

Welcome Home Anthony,
Did you train with us at Tiger Land, Fort Polk LA.? We shipped out of Port Tacoma on The USNS Geiger.
Dufford was a good friend of mine. He was awarded the Silver Star for saving the lives of the other two men that were on L.P. at The Battle of Hill 172.
I'm in touch with Kino Romo, he was our November Platoon M-60 Machine Gunner. Do you remember a Roy D. Marshall? Roy and I are good friends, he lives with his wife in Leesville LA. He went over on the ship with us and was in Delta Company 1/2.
I read where you were wounded on April 1st, 1968! Were you out on patrol the day that LT. COL. Mortimer O'Connor was KIA, Dejesus, and LT. Lulu was all so killed. I was with the Recon. 29er Platoon and for some reason we did not go out with the Battalion that day. We may have stood down for ambush that night. That was a very sad day for all of us.
Kino Romo took a leave and met his wife in Hawaii.
I will send you some of the other names on the back channel of those we trained with at Tiger Land that I'm in contact with.
Glad that you posted. There is a lot of good Brother's that post on here as you probably have read some of their messages.   
Take care;
Patton
