Blackie was in my Plt

Comments:

The men of Delta Co and C Co that I served with in 1970 were and still are some of the finest men I have ever known. I would fight along side those men anytime anywhere. Thanks to all those men who served our country. Too bad we were all disrespected so bad on returning home.
Thanks Blackie for maintaining this site all these years.

Looked up FSB Brick

Comments:

Just a great web site, well done. As an FE on a hook, dropped many sorties into FB's listed on this web site. We tried to do what ever we could to support our folks doing the hard work on the ground. Wish we could have done more at times. When I talked with the 11 Bravo guys they said they wouldn't want to be in the air...I guess we all took our chances and made the best of a bad situation.
I appreciate all the information and pictures, brings back lots of memories.
Turning and Burning...out!

I was with the 8th/4th Arty 175mm & 8" SP's. we were o n FSB Charlie 2. I arrived there in Feb. 70'. we were assigned to the 5th Mech. I also remember fire missions for the 101 when I was there. I like the aerial shot of C2. The first one I've found. let me say "WELCOME HOME and JOB WELL DONE"

Many of my high school classmates met this Saturday (15 Feb 2014) to commemorate the life of a Delta Raider – PFC Earnest Paul Holmes, Jr. Paul lost his life on 15 Feb 1968 while on patrol with the 3rd PLT, D Co, 2nd BN, 501st Infantry, 101 ABN DIV. Prior to our meeting, I had researched as much as possible online and discovered your web page about the Delta Raiders. I also read the unit Commander’s account of the engagement on 15 Feb 1968. I read many names of Raiders KIA who were members of Paul’s Platoon (3rd PLT), but I never saw anything that referenced exactly what happened to Paul. If any Delta Raider has any information about Paul Holmes and the circumstances of his death and sacrifice he made for his country, please contact me.

Hey, I am the son of a Vietnam Vet. Gary Lamar Murphy of the 101st Airborne in 1969 & 1970. He was a medic SP4. I know he was at firebase birmingham. I am wanting to see if anyone had any memory of him or stories. He was killed in May 2, 2000 on his motorcycle. So I am trying to get some information. Also what other bases he might have been at. Also where FB Birmingham was in location of FB Ripcord?
Please if anypne can help let me know,
Thanks,
Eric Murphy

Looked up LZ Panther on web

Comments:

We were a bastard 105 unit supporting the 101st April,May'68. May 24 was a hectic time as we put rounds inside of Camp Eagle 17 NVA KIA and helped a squad of 13 beat back a battalion of NVA, 12 survived with over 400 NVA KIA. A 101st unit were in camo foxholes outside our perimeter helping us stop a ground attack on LZ Panther while they called arty on their positions. Sure like to meet any of these brave soldiers
