Once again, I find myself tripping down memory lane, thinking about my Father,MSGT. Willie Douglas Stephens 5th S.F.G. who was killed in Vietnam on March 6, 1970 W/ Sgt. Foote. a photo composistion I created several years ago and posted on my web page was commented on by a visitor who designs computer graphics. Her question's have brought me here as my way of still trying to learn to deal with his death. I suppose that even in death there is still commaraderie with those that have also suffered tragic losses. I spent 18 years searching for the members of his group that survived because of the sacrafices of Sgt. Foote and himself, and have located several members. They spoke with me briefly, but as Special Forces People are,...they simply faded away again into nothingness. I thank them one and all for my very brief contact with them, even the man that had no other choice but to order my Father and Sgt. Foote to the "Hell Hole" as he put it, to their deaths, in order that the rest of the Group may live to fight another day. There is no forgiveness for him, because he did nothing wrong, it was simply a decision that had to be be made ( the good of the many out weigh the needs of the few.). I especially want to thank the Oregonian, I will never forget you!

Maybe you can help. I have a friend here in Pawleys Island, SC, Bonnie Brewer, whose father served in the 1st and 7th SFG. Very early on, he was one of the first of the first. She was one of eight kids, and her father died early, but he was a Major or LTC in the Special Forces when he left the army. He worked his way up the ranks. Do you have any resources that can help me or her find out more information? Bonnie does not remember too much since she was young (during the Army years) , but she said they were on Okinawa for several years, several different times. Also, home base was pretty much Ft. Bragg during the years, but she remembered one tour at Fort Gordon, Georgia. Any help, or direction to resources would help. Joe Leger, Army, Infantry/Aviation (CIB), Retired

The Montagnard people were the best friends i had in Nam, Hated by the South and the North, The most fearest fighters ever in my book, Better then any of the South, and definately far better than anyone in the North. I can not thank them enough for thier part in the war that we should have have one. The CIA let them down and and we as Special Forces SOG will never forget them. Just an ole fart who still lives the nightmares, and hear the screames of the dying. The faces are still there in my mind. Are Presedent (LBJ) was missinformed and missled to beleive we we're loseing in Nam, (BULL), We we're that close too ending it when he odered the bombing too stop.Thanks (McNamarra), and the rest of you that convence (LBJ) to stop. You all should be proud of yous selfs. Please don't stop what is going on in Iraq, Keep fighting so as for those that want to be FREE can be FREE with the help of the USofA. A tired old soldier.

I served with the US Army Special Forces from 1962-1970. I was with the 5th SFG (Abn) in Vietnam from 64-65 and 69-70.It doesn't get any better than that. I retired as a MSG (E8) on 11/30/77. My wife, Patricia, loved The Green Berets. She was proud to say "My husband is a Greet Beret" For any that knew her, she was stricken with ovarian cancer on April 16, 1998 and passed away on June 6, 2005 at 3:55 PM. Married on Sep 11, 1958 and after almost 47 years of marriage, she left me for a better man. Got rest her and all of our military heroes who have gone before her and after. De Oppresso Liber.

You Would Have To Go, Deep In The Pentagon Archive. It is with great priviledge and the highest destint honor that I hope that my words, will touch a young boy's heart. In the beginning there was a line drawn, that no man shall ever cross regardless of race, color, or creed, rich or poor. No man is above the law and not one man is the law... So let it be known from this day forward that if these words are ever violated, they would have to answer to my dragon.

I was with Co C, 6th SFG at Fort Bragg from April ?? 67 to April 69, MOS 05B4S. Left to go to flight school and served with the 498th Dustoff in Nam Jun 70, Jun 71. I just found your site and on the Memorial I saw the name Eugene H. Pugh. Gene was my best friend at Fort Bragg and we spent many happy times together. He would often spend time evenings and weekends with my wife and me. I lost touch with him after I left for flight school and have wondered ever since what had happened to him. If anyone could let me know if his name being on the Memorial means that he is deceased, could they let me know, if possible, when he died, and where he is buried. My short time with SF was one of the best times of my life. I still have the Berets I wore and my kids are really proud of them. Thanks for a great site, and for any information on my friend Gene Pugh.

My nephew Lance Cpl. David L. Abeyta was killed in a car crash May 20, 2005 close to Green River, Utah. From what i heard, he was a very wonderful person. I knew him when he was in grade school and junior high. I would like to know if anyone out there knew him. He was based out of Miramar in San Diego. I don't know what unit he was in, all i know is that he was a Marine in San Diego. He just returned from Iraq after being there for a year and was going to see his sister graduate in Colorado and then be married. He fell asleep at the wheel and went under a semi. So, if there is anyone out there that knew him, and has pictures, please email thank you!

Julia Child died today. You probably didn't know that she not only was a great cook, but also a WWII spy. Julia Child, the famous "French Chef," started her service in the OSS Headquarters shortly after the United States entered World War II. She was transferred overseas in 1944 and served in Ceylon and China. She was awarded the Emblem of Meritorious Civilian Service for the leadership she displayed as head of the Registry of the OSS Secretariat in China.

Been waiting 2 yrs now and he didn't Certify his last DD214 form, I have a copy here but they won't accept it the way it is. He carried it in his wallet. If anyone out there may have served in his unit, he was Green Beret Special Forces, Search and Destroy, Sgt. Major and in for 14.5 yrs. He was also known as "Windy the Clown" back then too. He did a few shows for moral in the service to cheer up the troups etc. Please email me if you have any info I can use to prove Rep. of Viet Nam and exposure to Agent Orange. He had diabetes and congestive heart failure. Died in Seattle V.A. Hosp. at age 67. One buddy did find him but 1 week too late! He was on his original team in Viet Nam. Frank was also 101st and 82nd Airborne. Someone prob. remembers him out there. If so let me know. Thanks Liz Collins

My uncle was in Vietnam. I believe he was in the Army or Marines, I am not sure. He was a sniper. He is still with the government in Iraq and will be until the day he dies. I have not seen him since he came home for a day during the time the conflict in Vietnam was going on. I love him very much and he is my hero. All Special Forces are my family and the guys I know in my area treat me like one of them. I was a civilian working for the government during the time of Vietnam and my uncle saw to it that the government took good care of me and some other family members. I pray all Special Forces will be accounted for and the ones in harms way come home safely and sound and don't have to go through the hell we did in Vietnam. I hope their minds are right. As right as they can be after all the things they do for their country. If anyone has any information on Jerry "Mad Dog" Shriver please e-mail me and let me know. I think he is a family member but I am not sure. Mom won't talk about my uncle because she is very family orientated and feels like my uncle deserted the family when he joined the service and made a life out of it. I know he enjoys what he is does and that is fine by me. I am very proud of what he does and even if he never comes home again I will know he died doing what he wanted to do for his country and he loved what he did.

Some things I think would have been handled a little differently, had I of known then what I know now. However, the challanges and friends made will never be forgotten. We have lost a lot of faithful warriors over the years and they will never be forgotten for one reason or another. May they all rest in peace and have a drink awaiting our arrival in the Happy Hunting ground, along with Maggie. Take care, stay safe, keep smiling, happy hunting, and may the good Lord keep a watchful eye over you any yours. DE OPPRESSO LIBER. Ringo

Reference Ray Simpson, VC. First, I believe you've mispelled his surname. If I am not mistaken, Rayenne has two "n"s. (Unless the display in Kennedy hall is wrong. Hell, I always thought it was Ray N. Simpson). Second, he was NOT RAR when he was serving with the MIKE Force. Ray was Aussie SAS, seconded to Commando, which in those days was a Reserve unit with a regular army cadre. Thus Ray wore the green Commando beret while he was with us. Since he had served with RAR in both Japan and Korea (Not sure who he was with in Malaya), he would not feel insulted. But as he was out of Commando when he won the VC, he should probably be listed that way. For those who knew WO Peter "Wallaby" Wilkes, former CO of 212th MIKE Force company, sad to say he passed away in Queensland about two months ago. Wallaby was among our more colorful Aussies, and that's saying a lot. Any news out there on Melvin McBroome or Paul Spielman? regards from the land of the morning calm

Hi, my name is Scott and I am representing a group of Ohio high school students who have worked hard to drive interest and support for a war memorial to be built in Washington DC... In 1993 students at my school were watching, Channel One, an educational program, which ran footage of Somalia and showed an American soldier being dragged through the streets of Mogadishu. That moment in history was the catalyst that started the "Pyramid Of Remembrance". The Pyramid Of Remembrance monument will honor all soldiers of all branches who have been killed in peace keeping missions, military training accidents, terrorist acts and other non-declared war events. We need your help to make this happen. While a bill dealing with this issue has been introduced to Congress, we still need help raising funds and making sure this will actually happen. If you would like more information, email me, Thanks

This is a special "Thank You" to our son SGT Philip James Svitak - KIA in Afghanistan March 04, 2002. Phil - "Thank You" son for being a person we could always be proud of - for your strength of character, your devotion to your family, friends and faith. For your beliefs and dedication to duty - for your loyalty and compassion for others. Thank You for being someone not only we, but others, could depend on. We enjoyed your quick wit and laughter and common sense. Everything that we had we wanted to share with you because you were the very essence of our beings - a special gift from God. We could not understand the driving desire you had to join and then re-join the "Night Stalker" Unit nor the extreme pride you had while in this Unit until we met your "brothers" of the 160th. The respect they hold for you is so very touching and we are grateful for shared memories of you they have given to us. Pictures flash in my mind starting from the moment we first held you in our arms to the young boy in OD Greens & Camo always on a bike or skateboard to the young teen in Civil Air Patrol blues. Other pictures are of you working at the grill for Hy-Vee, working under the hood of your beloved '68 Firebird. You with Shannon Stone and his pickup or on your Motorcycles - you with Laura and then our Grandbabies. How proudly you offered them for us to hold and cuddle. The pictures are never-ending - almost 32 years of them. You were, as your dad and I will always say "The best kid a parent could ever have". You were a silent achiever - you didn't brag about all that you had done. I deeply regret son that in this lifetime we did not have you until WE were no more and that you did not have the chance to "grow old" with Laura and see your sons grow to manhood. Hero's don't choose their destiny - destiny chooses them. Rest gently my son - until we meet again. Love always from - Mom & Dad

Be advised, if you want to know a unit not to jump with, its 3rd ANGLICO...Those Marines are dirty. They don't change their socks or their scivies but worst of all, they don't shutup. Those idiots could have a squad walk feet from their O.P. and they'll still keep on yacking about all their stupid friends and ugly girlfriends. Those devil dogs smell like sour anal and fetid urine all rolled into one condensed package of reek. 3rd Anglico indoc program includes the mastery of the art of producing the vilest, eye-watering funk that man has ever has had a whiff of. Once the ANGLICO Marines came to Ft. Hunter-Ligget for an exercise, the Army had to switch over to MOP gear because of the lingering biological funk spread by those dirty, loud-mouth Marines. As stated by the C.O. of 40 Commando, Royal Marines: "3rd ANGLICO paratroopers can be recognized by the distinctive yellow cloud of ass trailed behind them immediately after existing an aircraft...One must slip away from this cloud at all cost or suffer the smelly conciquences."

I'm writing about Brian Devaney whose name is on the Memorial at McDill. It's been on my mind to do this for awhile but wasn't sure who to write to (although I have written to someone at McDill). His name is spelt wrong.. It is "Devney" on the Memorial (I know it happens - it's happened in DC I understand with other names - this isn't a.. castigation). I understand that it can't be fixed - for the same reasons that those in DC can't be.. but I was wondering if maybe it could be here "online". This is Brian.. He was from Toronto. His details can be found here: If you could do that.. add that "A" in.. that would mean alot. Thanks, Anne

This message is to recognize and pay due respect to MSG Gordon, SFC Shugart, and the 17 Rangers who lost their lives on 3 Oct 1993 in Mogadishu, Somalia. And let's not forget the 73 wounded. I, myself, was not in the SOF, but I was a member of 2-18 Inf., 3-24 Inf Div (Mech) in Ft. Benning. My unit was on alert to go to Somalia to provide cover for our elite. Unfortunately, Mr Clinton's Secretary of Defense, who has never been in the military, thought it wasn't necessary and was too high profile to mobilize Bradleys and armor. That was a big mistake. To all the D-boys, Rangers, Nightstalkers. You all paid a high price. But you all fought well, you fought hard, and most important, you all came back. Those who gave it all, You will NEVER be forgotten. I also want to quickly salute those who gave it all in Afghanistan, and those who are still there. You are appreciated. And last but not least, I want to mention SMJ John J Sablan. A Green Beret and Veteran of the Viet Nam War. I was at the NTC in California when I learned of your passing away. I learned so much from you, and I'm sorry I couldn't see you one last time. You will always be in my thoughts.

I'm trying to find more info on my uncle, Sargent Major Georgle Manuel. He signed on in 52 at Ft. Bragg. After WWII was in Germany, and 3 tours in V.N. (one was in the 50's). I know he worked in the hills with the Montagnard people We have pictures of him jumping in Thailand in '54, and lots of others. But we did not pay enough attention as kids and I would like to put names with the pictures. I went to a SF reunion with him and my aunt in Colo. Sprgs. and met many of his friends. I am hoping some of you will respond. Thank you.

Warm Wishes to the families of our fallen Comrades. We are so sorry to hear about your love ones untimely call to the lord in the performance of their duty to Country. This is more grief than a family should have to experience. We unfortunately are forced to accept the tragedies of War, yet at the same time your love ones were heroes for their commitment and dedication to service for the United States of America and this touches us all. Knowing this of course does not lessen the pain or grief. I do hope the fact that your friends and loved ones share your pain and that in some way this brings you comfort. Please consider SFA Chapter 46 (DLIC) Thailand part of the group who shares your pain. You all are in our thoughts and we will remember your love ones in our prayers.

As far back as I could remember, I wanted to be a Frogman. My Grandfather fought in WW1, my Father was captured in the Battle Of The Bulge, and my Brother was in the Navy. When I graduated from High School in 1970 the war was still going on. Americans were over there for me giving up their lives. Even though it was not popular, I did not hesitate to join. I made it through BUDS and requested UDT-21. I never saw any action but I was willing to go and that is all any of us can do! I want to thank all of those who served in the military especially those who went to Nam. That was my war and I am proud of all of you. You are all my heros! Be proud of what you did! Never hang your head! It is no different than what is going on now except that the country is behind this one. We were also trying to stop the terrorist VC. We could have won that war if the politicians would have let us! WhoooYa! If anyone out there knows anyone who was in UDT-21 from 1971-1976 please let me know.

My father, William J. Gallagher from Stoneham, Massachusetts died 10 years ago. I very much want to talk to anyone that knew him during his war years. I believe he started out in the reserves and when the war broke out he went into the army. He served his country in the Pacific and fought on Saipan. I'm not sure but I think he was in the 77th infantry, 306th division. He was a staff sargeant. Please email me if you have any information. I don't have any information about what he did during the war or what he was like. Thank you in advance. Susan

I have enlisted in the Army, I leave for basic training Nov.1 . I was wondering if anyone presently serving as a ranger or a ranger that has recently retired could give me information on how to join the rangers. I desperately want to be part of the SpecOps comm. I think what SpecOps soldiers do is the most honorable job in the U.S. military. So any information on how to join will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I was the last Combat Medic with "Lima" Co. 75th.Inf. [LRRP/RANGER] 101st.Abn.Div., Republic of Viet Nam. Fred Zabitosky (MOH/5TH SF Gp., CCN/Laos) was my Plt. Sgt. in "Lima" Co. Sgt. Zabitosky was an unmeasurable asset to "Lima"Co. due to his Knowledge & Personal Experience in performing LRRP Missions in RVN. To be Lead by and Serve with "A Soldier's Soldier" such as Sgt. Zabitosky was inspiring to myself & many others in "Lima" Co. As Company Medic I was Privey to the nature & extent of the wounds that Sgt. Zabitosky had incurred during previous tours in Viet Nam. To see a Man put himself into "Harms Way" by CHOICE, knowing he had come so close to Death before, Is the stuff of which "HEROS & LEGIONS" are made of ! The Modesty of his Mannerisms & The Complete lack of Self-Ego were very humbling to observe, and traits that seem to be the NORM in many Medal of Honor Recipients! (I have met four others). I'm very pleased to find a web site that Acknowledges & Includes ALL U.S. & many ALLIED "ELITE FORCES" of the "Special Operations" Community!

I'd like to correct statement. My dad informed me he was NOT a green beret, SO I'D LIKE TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, WE WROTE ME THE FOLLOWING TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND HOW HE CAME TO SF. He gave me the following info:my dad wrote:>> Do you recall the party at The Red Mouse (Tacoma WA prior to departure to Nam?) A special thanks to Detachment A-69 (Tacoma, Washington....June 1970) Just reviewing this website sent by my daughter. Many of those that was at CCC..... I've never seen or heard of again....since leaving Kontum. Damn it's been 31 years!!!!! Memory fails me, specially since transferring into CCC from Pleiku (C-team). Many of the names are now forgotten (specially since we used code names) know what I mean. Hey guy I got your e-mail address and will definitely be in touch. For the "SF" that lived, served and died....I owe an apology. My daughter "knew" I served with the SF and assumed I was a "Green Beret". Let me explain. I left the 82nd Airborne in 1969, and was assigned as a candy-striper to the 3rd SF (Sig CO) under Chief Leo Butcher. After the 3rd was de-activated, I was re-assigned to the 7th SF under Chief Meadows. In June 1970 was re-assigned to the 5th at Nha Trang Chief John C Martin (now deceased....knew him since October 1965) ...then sent to Pleiku C-Team, under Chief Donald Taylor. Under Chief Taylor I was responsible for all communications repairs, B-23, B-24, including the A Camps. 1SG Alford was C-Team 1SG. I was not in-country long enough to return when the 5th's colors was returned and was further assigned to SOA CCC at Kontum....there I remained until I was rotated back to Ft Riley....Gen Flanagan was Post Commander and CSM Carlos Leal (I heard but cannot verify that he (CSM Leal)died in Thailand during a HALO). CSM Leal had MSG Roy Benavidez check with the Replacement Detachment...daily. All those that came into Ft Riley (from the SF) were taken directly to CSM Leal....who gave us a job......yep there was a teamhouse there too. In 1972 I was able to return to Ft Bragg (under some kind of 82nd Airborne call-up, that would not allow transfers back to Smoke Bomb Hill.) Unlike many wannabe's.... I do not claim to be a Green Beret.....however I did serve with and in support of the many that were in and around Plieku and Kontum. Toby I still think of Cpt Krupa quite often.....may he RIP. .....a copy of this e-mail will be added to the guestbook mentioned.SUBMITTED TO CORRECT ERROR

My Dad was a "Green Beret" his name is JOHN C. SANUT, he retired in 1984 after 20 years or so. I wanted as a tribute to him find anyone that served with him. He was in Communications Chief at one time I believe. He was stationed at Ft.Campbell (where I was born), Ft Bragg, Ft. Riley, Mainz Germany, finally at Ft Hood. My memories of my Dad are still with me along with all the things I learned from him. I will come back and add any info else I learn about him. He was 17 when he went in I found a picture of him with his Airborne #132 on his helmet. He comes from the Stockton, California area. please direct any questions to me his adoring daughter who is proud of her father. De Opresso Libre

15 July 2001.. Eulogy for Ed Sprague: "I'm George Dooley. I first met Ed Sprague more than 35 years ago. I never thought that he'd become a friend, but he did. His initial greeting was gruff, but that was Ed Sprague..... Over the years since I first met him, he went on to a distinguished career. He became the leading authority in the world on the Central Highlands of Vietnam. Along the way he retired from the Army and returned to the Central Highlands under the auspices of the State Department. Serving seven years in Vietnam, he was there at the collapse in 1975..... Ed Sprague continued on in the Foreign Service, advancing in rank. He served in many areas of the world and eventually retired at ambassadorial rank. He lived his remaining years in Antrim, New Hampshire...... But what made Ed Sprague different from other men? Mainly, he cared. He cared about his family. He cared about the Montagnards of Vietnam, who also cared about him--probably more than they cared about and respected any other American. He cared about the peoples in Africa with whom he worked, and he cared about his comrades. It was really just that simple--he cared...... At one point over the years, our various assignments in the world caused us to lose touch. Eventually though, we reconnected in 1988. And I'm glad we did. In 1992 we began seeing each other every year at the annual Special Forces Association convention...... I don't think Ed Sprague ever really appreciated how important he was in the history of the Cold War. But numerous books, articles, and television interviews say otherwise. I think it's likely that in the future, knowledge of his service to his country, and appreciation of how unique it was, will grow and spread...... I am proud to call Ed Sprague my friend, and I won't speak of him in the past tense...... If there is anyone else who'd like to come forward to share their memories of Ed Sprague, please do so."..... George..

He is Pete Beriman, headed the Special Forces Reserves in Rhode Island before being activated and sent to Pentagon in 65-66. Last I know he was Maj. Peter Berriman (or possibly Berrigan). Also, if anyone served with my neighborhood buddy from RI, Bob MacNaught, KIA in Nam in 68 but served with SF in Korea teaching ROK Marines how to scuba.

I served with the 160th HEM from July 1966 until Jan 1968, when I was discharged. In Dec 1966, we moved the company lock, stock, and barrel from Ft. Hood to Vietnam. We traveled to Viet Nam on a troop ship. Talk about good food! I lived on Hershey Bars for the entire trip. Our base camp was located about 20 miles west of Qui Nhon on HW 19. Most of my time in Viet Nam, I was part of a task that was manned from several different platoons. Our mission was to repair and modify the M110 & M107 self-propelled weapons. We spent time in Dong Ha (about 6 months) and Chu Lai (about 3 months) before departing for home in Jan 1968. I was fortunate(?) to visit several other spots during my time there. Would like to exchange stories with anyone that was with the 160th during that time.

He was a fearless man who served with the Navy SEALs for approx 8 yrs in the early 60's, if not for our Brothers, Fathers, Uncles, and such we would not have the brave men protecting our beloved country today. God Bless all of you no matter with whom or where you served. I salute all my brothers and sisters on this Memorial Day 2001.

Found an entry about the CVMC on your site. I would like to set the record straight and warn other veterans to beware of Internet scams. We are what remains of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Club, Gabe "Iceman" Holland claimed to be president of this club claiming membership of around 2,500. He further claimed that the club was formed in 1954, non-of which is true. The CVMC site is now down. CVMC was a scam to milk money out of veterans. 45 members thinking they were part of the non-existent CVMC regrouped, claimed the patch and renamed the organization "Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association. It is now an organization for veterans who have gone into harms way. We have applied for non-profit status. Our address is Nueboch "Blackhorse" CVMA, PR Officer

I am looking to talk with anyone who served with Major George Quamo in Viet Nam. I know he was reported missing in 1968 and his body was recovered in 1974. I know he was killed in a plane crash and that he participated in the Special Forces rescue at Lang Vei in 1968. In the various web tributes to Special Forces personnel who > served at Lang Vei, it mentions Quamo rounding up a group of Special Forces commando volunteers from the MACV-SOG base at Khe Sanh and leading an "heroic" reinforcing rescue that allowed the Lang Vei defenders to evacuate. > > Is there any person, or a place where I could find out more about Major Quamo, I would greatly appreciate it. > > Tom Haggerty, > > 50 Linnell St, > > Springfield MA 01104

May I say to all Veterans, past, present and future, the time you spent in the armed forces is one to be proud of. My dad served 3 tours in nam with the SF. Even though he is my hero. (don't tell him but...I hold the utmost admiration for the men of SOG.) They will never be recognized properly for their missions. They went and did what no one else dared. Men like James Luttrell and Tony DeLuca never returned as so many other SOG men. Gen Bargewell, was a buck sgt in SOG and Gen Bowra, was a 1st Lt in SOG. To all special op units, you have made the past soldiers proud and have given the present and future sp ops men and women a road paved with honor and the deep seeded feeling of patriotism to keep close in their hearts during their travels.

In all those years, I have not come to admire or respect any individuals more than those I served with while in Special Forces. I thank God he gave me the opportunity.

Sure thought the Ranger Creed and rules meant something to Rangers. Ranger "Pappy" White is under investigation and could possibly be removed from the RHOF if no one comes forward that may have information to his being involved in the Cabanatuan Raid. If anyone has any information to that effect please advise me or the Stars and Stripes. It is a shame that a board makes a selection and then a POW makes allegations that this Ranger was not there and no proof can be provided due to a fire. I would hate to know that a POW allegations will ruin this Rangers honor and integrity. It is said that the ONLY reason Ranger White was inducted into the Ranger Hall of Fame is because of an endorsement from the Joint Chief of Staff. How sad that these allegations may ruin an honor that was given. Rangers Lead the Way? Let's pull together and see if we can't find someone or something to assist this fellow Ranger. I'm sure as you are all aware of during war time people are in places that paperwork doesn't show. Let's not let this Ranger down. Let's pull together... Yes RTLW.. Ranger White made a lot of contributions to the Ranger community as well as to his service. He fought in 3 wars. Paper list? How would someone have a list of all POW's that were rescued? How would someone KNOW who was there and who wasn't. My father served with Col. Mucci and requested to accompany him on that raid. Unfortunately Col. Mucci is no longer with us. I ask for all assistance that can be given.

US Army 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne) Ft Benning, Ga I am looking for anyone that served with a cousin of mine cpt. lloyd garcia yrs of service in viet nam were 66-67, 69-70, 71-72. i think he was with 5th special forces at loc ninh 69-70. At one time he was in tay ninh city (war zone c?) and possibly at an loc 71-72. He was a co. commander. My father was a career airman & was very proud of his newphew. I do not know as much as I would like to know about cpt. garcia except that he "tells it like it is" & admired bob howard medal of honor recipient very much. cpt garcia has been brutely honest with me & has led me to beleive in myself. He quoted bob howard as saying simply "good is good unto itself, good never has to be justified". cpt garcia would also be very upset with me for writing this e-mail, but it is a free country thanks in part to him, you his fellow commarades & all the vets that have come before & hopefully will follow!!! My mother was an Aussie & I know that the aussie's hold the yanks in highest esteem & visa verse. please let me know if you can give me any info about cpt. garcia I have pics but would love to know more about him and his tours with special forces, viet nam.

I remember when you spent two weeks at our house in Silver Spring, MD in 1982. I was 8 years old, and I remember you waking me up at 6am every morning while you were there telling me that discipline needed to be learned at an early age. You would then have me clean my bedroom and sweep the kitchen floor. Back when I was a child, those two weeks were the scariest I could imagine. Now that I'm older, your words come back to haunt me, and I would like to say how right you were. I remember Joshua as a baby, and I remember how you cut your forehead on the kitchen fan overhang outside our side door. Those memories will be with me forever. I thought of you for some reason this morning and decided to see if I could find anything on you via the Internet, and I stumbled upon this page. I called my parents, whom you knew, and related the news. I grew up hearing stories about your acts of heroism, and I am saddened by the news of your passing. You will be in my prayers. I am also married now and have a son of my own named Joshua. Thank you for everything Doug Miller, even though you may not remember who I was I will remember you for the rest of my life. Rest in peace.

Dear CSM Miller: How could I ever understand the special bond you share with all those brave men, like my husband, MSG Jeff Gallant. What I can see very clearly, though, is that each one of you lives in the others, and your bond can never be broken. Therefore, as much as I love my wonderful husband, as much do I hold you, and all those other brave men who shared the same experiences in my heart. CSM Miller, I will pray for you and yours. And I know that, although no words or deeds on earth ever could, God will reward you richly for everything you have done, for everything you have been through. With deepest respect and admiration, Ute Gallant.

CSM Miller, I picked up a note from MSG GALLANT and I was deeply impressed when I read your story. As a German Armor Officer who I am we traditionally are thrilled when we listen to the stories of heroism especially when the single action of one individual overwhelms the enemy. You deserve a triple PANZER HURRA. You are a Hero. The military virtues you always practised, the support of your family and friends and the prayers spoken for you will make your personal battle easier to fight. My thoughts are with you and I thank MSG Gallant for taking me to you through this means. God Bless You

S/SGT Miller, I wish you well. A good friend of mine, MSG Gallant, a veteran of Vietnam with the 5th SFG, told me about you and sent me some literature on your heroics. I am a Major serving in the greatest organization on Earth, the U.S. Army, and I need to recruit about 250,000 soldiers just like you, or I fear for our freedom, liberty, and our way of life. We have been "invaded" by well-intentioned "feel-gooders", "let's make sure we don't hurt anybody's feelings" leadership that has forgotten what's like to be in combat. Soldiers close in and destroy the enemy, and leaders do things like you did to keep your men alive. Thank you for your service to the nation, and I proudly salute you! Julian

"The Green Berets" Author:  Robin Moore

Special Operations Memorial Foundation It was an unforgettable and haunting experience to visit the memorial wall and see so many names of SF men I knew, admired, yes and mourned. From Joe Lutz to Larry Thorny, memorialized in the first chapter of my book under the cover name Kornie, it was difficult to keep a dry eye as I moved from plaque to plaque. From Eye Corps to the Delta, from pre-Tet to Son Tay to the embassy evacuation, the history of the Vietnam war is written in the names on the wall of the SMOF.

1st SFG(Abn), 1963-69, B-420(64),CCN (65-66), USARV (69-70). I had the honor to serve with the cream of the military. Many have passed and a few like me are hanging around to "Give" again. My first friend/roommate and mentor Sam (Frenchy) Theriault showed me how to be a pro. Hope he is saving me a bunk, up there. The others I looked up to as professionals/hero's/ and friends were Gerald Waring, Billy Edge, Rufus (Bob) Warner, Arif Zaky, Kaiser Thomas, Col George A. Maloney (The quiet Pro), Al Servie, George Palmer, Don Kainu, Horton Daniels,and so many more who gave me the honor to serve with them.

I would like to see Marvin Shields added to your list of MOH recipients. During June 9-10 1965, the SF camp at Dong Xoai came under attack. During the battle Lt. Charles Q. Williams and SeaBee Marvin Shields were awarded the MOH for their actions. Shields died from wounds he received during the battle. The SeaBee detachment was assigned to Special Forces Detachment A749, to assist in building the camp at Dong Xoai. Would you consider adding Marvin Shields to your list of MOH recipients? Please let me know what your actions will be, adding his name or not adding his name. Shields' daughter's web site is listed above on line marked URL. I am a member of the SFA, M8629L, and was the senior medic at Dong Xoai. If I may be of assistance in helping with your decision on Shields or gathering data let me know.

Thanks for creating a great web site. Often, when folks realize how many fraternal organizations I belong to and support, I am asked why? I believe in perpetuating the traditions of our fine Special Operations Forces, especially those who paid the supreme sacrifice. Many times we were the only ones privy to our missions, and that leaves it to us to honor those who gave it everything, and never returned. Thirty three United States Special Operations personnel have received the Medal of Honor (25 US Army; six US Navy; and five USAF); additionally three Australian warrant Officers were posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross while attached to the 5th SFG(A) in the Republic of Vietnam. Like many of my comrades in SOA and SFA,  I spent my time on the two-way firing range (Middle East 57-58, Southeast Asia 66-70). It is up to us now to remember our fallen comrades. I was the second career military retiree invited to join the USSOCOM Special Operations Memorial Foundation, Inc. My former commander, the late MG Joe Lutz was the first. I served as the Foundation Secretary from 1997-1999, and was elected Vice Chairman effective January 2000. I was never more proud when USCINCSOC, General Peter Schoomaker hosted the unveiling and dedication of OUR memorial in 1999, with more than 600 names already on the wall. They will not be forgotten!!
