Sgt. RickWe were there in 1966, the initial 4th Inf. units in War Zone C. B 2/12, 3rd platoon. Dau Tieng in your pics looks like a modern city compared to our landing there two years earlier. God Bless all of you. Our company suffered high KIA and WIA numbers. Rick Bonekemper, E5

Mike HauserFirst picture I have seen of my cousin who was in B co. at the time I was there. Bill Hauser arrived in country after I was there about a half year. Are you sure Ted Hauser isnt Bill. Thanks for the photos.

Tony AdamsBill is correct. I guess my memory has faded over the years. In those days most people were remembered by nickname or last name. I had tried to build a directory of names from memory. As I recall Bill was quite an artist in drawing. Would be great to get his email.

Tony AdamsJust noticed that I had name correct in beginning picture but wrong on the platoon picture. He is also in the party picture with the shaving cream goatee at one of out stand down drunken parties.

Natalie CaulaMy uncle Wilfredo Zamora, who went by "Cusi" was a cook at Dau Tieng in the 25th Infantry, 77 Artillery. He died on the attack on July 4, 1968. Did you ever meet him?

Natalie, I don't recall meeting your Uncle but he will be added to my list of fallen brothers when I pray that they rest in peace for ever.

John GrigsbyWow, my friend, this was a great walk down memory lane about 1SG Clary, Badass company area, our fellow grunts, the snack bar, and the hootches, and the swimming pool.

I was in 1st platoon. I have pictures with names of some of our guys, which included Charles Wickliffe from Louisville, KY, and Charles Hoard from Memphis, TN, and Acie Gray from Selmer, TN. I am from Knoxville, TN. I remember the Tet Offensive being a real heart-breaking time for our company and battalion. Lots of KIA's.

Glad to see you made it. Welcome home. I hope you will e-mail me. Who would have ever thought back then that we would have computers and cell phones and all this other stuff with which to communicate?

Take care of yourself.

Just made contact with another vet. The platoon picture with names shows Gary Hoops but it is actually Gary Ascher. Also Gary thinks the guy on far right first row is Arlie Whitlle. I am working on tagging all my pictures from photo album and will forward to sarge to replace current album.
