John Erickson: were you in Alpha?  I remember a guy who was shot in the chest by either a RVN or a chou hoi (sp) while doing  a recon cloverleaf.  I remember it well because even though I was on the 50 I would do some daytime riffs to help out since we were shorthanded. I don't know if that was you or not.  I know the guy who was shot asked to go out in my place.  Let me know if that was you.  I never heard how the guy fared, was only told he was chest shot and medivaced.   And yes the Captain who was one of a very short list of Officers I had any respect for and Sweetpea were killed in an accident.  A flare went off in a box with shape charges.

Bruce, I am happy as hell to hear from you. Yes I am the guy you know from that day. I remember bits and pieces from my tour and not too much about that particular day. I know that I was turning around when I reached an opening from the jungle when I was hit (the round went in by my spine in between the shoulder blades, took out the top of a lung and came out the front right shoulder). I spent a couple of weeks in Japan after 2 weeks in the field hospital then went to Great Lakes Naval hospital  for a couple of months. They sent me to the 7th Cav in Ft. Meade to finish my enlistment.  Im doing fine now and retired. I would really like to keep in touch and BS some more. Thanks so much for making contact. Would like to hear more about your time in the Nam. Take care.

Did you meant the 6th Armored Calvary Regiment at Ft. Meade, MD?
When I came home from Vietnam in March 1970 I was stationed at Ft. Meade with the 6th ACR. The unit patch was a golden unicorn on purple background. I remained with the 6th ACR until I was discharged from the Army in June 1971.
The best I recollect I was with Lima Troop. Our paths may have crossed at Ft. Meade. Rodriguez was the 1st SGT.

Hi Joe. I was at Ft. Meade from about June of '70 until march of '71. Cant remember who the first shirt was or the units insignia but some of us were trucked up to Indian Town Gap Pa. to train ROTC people. We had a E-6 named Gagne (very rotund figure!) who was our cadre staff sgt. There was a guy with us that had been wounded in the stomach (in  Viet Nam, Republic of). I was still on medication and enjoyed booze quite a bit in those days so my memories are a little fuzzy.

Aftert Nam I too was assigned to the "Horny Horse", 6th ACR -  M COMPANY. I was told the only company in the US Cav. Seems they had received some order addressed to M company, so typical army, they changed all the signs etc. And petitioned the Dep't of the Army to be re-designated as a troop, But the three months I was with them we were M company.

All we did was pratice 'back-back training' for riot control should any protests get out of hand in DC. That and guard the stockade. All Fort Mead was 3rd Army, except for the the 6th. Somehow, only guys from the 6th wound up in the stockdade, and so many did that we call it the "4th Squardon".

Bob Fulps was also assigned the the 6th at some point around '70 I think. And one other guy who I met at Owensboro five or six years back said he had wound up with the 6th also.

Funny so many guys from the 2nd Inf wound up going to the 6th ACR?

I was 1SG of Echo Troop, 2/6 Cavalry Regiment, 1970-71. I was with the unit when we deployed to Indian Town Gap and when we were deployed to Washington, D.C. during the "hippie Crisis". SSG Joseph P. Gagne was one of the Platoon Sgts in Echo Troop. Cpt. Daniel Kaufman was troop commander. After the regiment reorganized in 1971, I moved to Post Headquarters as Operations Sergeant. So---hello all you old "unicorns". Good to hear from you.

Checking in for August 2012. All is well in Campbellsville, KY.

Hello to all the guys that served with the 6th ACR at Ft. Meade, MD. I didn't realize there were so many from the 2nd Infantry Regiment. I do believe 1SG Rodriquez of L Troop was named Phillip and do believe he was from Texas. I do know he was one hell of a good guy and a great 1SG. I was with a SP4 (can't recall his name) that had been wounded severely in Vietnam and was still wearing a device (I can't recall the name) that was a bag on his side his bowels dumped into.  He joked about it a lot and was a good soldier with a great attitude. Another guy I roomed with I will never forget because of his last name . It took me a long time to learn how to say it yet alone spell it. His name was SGT Haszankulizade. His mother was German and his father Turkish. He spoke English, German and Turk fluently. And also yet another guy that had been hit by shrapnel from a mortar round and required opening up his chest cavity. I couldn't believe the scars he had running from his neck to his lower abdomen on both his front and backside. He took pride in showing his scars. All good guys I had the privilege to serve with.
