Hi William Evans;

I just picked up your post, I was in the 2nd Platoon, Company A, don't remember any of the names you have mentioned, sorry if you were talking to me, that is. Were you there during 1967, Operation Junction City was the one I remember, I think there was another operation going on when I got there.

The older I get, the more I forget, names especially. I remember a stand up black guy named Willie, and an E5 Sargent Lee, another guy named Mayou, at least it sounded like that, he was from Locus Grove Georgia. Did find a guy named Bill Altman, he was my best friend, talked to him by phone the other day.

We'll keep trying, we wear the Black Scarf, fire Tracer Rounds, and stay On Point.

Hang in there.

James Allen

Hello Bill.  

No need sending the $20 bucks...You have all ready done more than your share and have paid in full  (and then some)with your dedication and honesty to all who served with the 2nd & 2nd.

You've done your duty and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Just wanted to let you know that I was not the Chaplain's Assistant at any time in Vietnam.

Mike Craig is the one who posted that, so please do not get us mixed up.

Hi JJ, when you were the FO, B Company, 1/2 Black Scarfs.  My question is. Were you in the same NDP as I when Lt. COL. Mortimer Connor was KIA, and Lt. Lulu?  It was during Operation Quyet Thang, March 11th Thur April 7th 1968.  Do you have any pictures of that NDP, I have some that was sent to me from Al Martin.
The 1/5th Artillery guys let me load a 105 on a fire mission during this operation, of course I was not allowed to pull the Laynard. But loading the 105 was something that I had been wanting to do  from the time I was a little boy.  I even made my own cannon that actually worked, no live ammo tho.
The Operation took place in the Trapezoid.
