Re: VN Combat -- short but intense

Great post Jim. Great video. Makes me look and say Jesus they look like kids. Barely old enough to shave and still kicking NVA ass all up and down the border. I celebrated my 19th Birthday in War Zone D in 1966. At the time, D Zone had the highest concentration of Old School, Hard Core VC and NVA C...

Re: ARVN Rangers patrol, U Minh Forest

Thanks for posting that Jim, brought back some memories. The footage of the little girl shocked me.....I may have been acquainted with her mother.

Re: RECONDO School Origins

Even though it came under the auspices of XVIII ABN Corps, when I went through (9-79) it was an all SF cadre staffed and run, either from SWC, 5th or 7th SFG (Back then, it was considered an "SD" assignment for them) While I was there, an unmarked Huey landed and off loaded 5-6 guys in bu...

Re: Jade Helm 15

I'm still in contact with a former Ranger member from here. He's a feller from Tennessee. He's involved in Jade Helm and is getting quite a laugh out of the sudden paranoia. They do this type of exercise every year on public and private land. And the National Guard doesn't have a prayer trying to mo...

Re: Introduction - Daniel

DarkMatter, some of what he said is possible .....but not likely. Record keeping, and "give-a-shit" in general were pretty murky during the years of the Vietnam War. My best friend turned 18 during his second tour.....parents lied about his age to get him in. And the youngest name on The W...
