I am a childhood and longtime friend of Herb Nye. One day in the early 70s, I remember hearing the screaming engine some car coming up the county road near my home. Then, in our driveway, appeared this shiny maroon 66 or 67 Olds 442. Out hops Herb. ( No real surprise there. I'd been a passenger of his in the past! ) I was glad to see him. I did my stint in the Air Force from 66-70 and had lost track. It was great to see him in the flesh , once more. When getting around to his experience with the WolfHounds , and in his typically understated way, he related his story, I was not surprised. He could be very "focused", He knew the consequences. But, that was not a concern. He was THE MAN at the time, and there was a friend who needed help... RIGHT NOW. He was "focused". Throughout his life, friends have always been important to Herb. But, this was an even bigger obligation that only a comrades in arms understand. I was in an environment for 15 years that trained US Army warriors prior to deployment, I learned two things. One: A round doesn't sound the same coming in as it does going out. Two: As soldiers they fight for each other first and foremost. That Silver Star might not be a big deal to Herb. It is for us. That honor was and is well deserved.

I am looking for veterans of the FSB Diamond I, II & III battles for possible recollections of the mass VC/NVA graves that resulted, and where they may be located relative to the respective perimeters. At the above link you may see the work we have done already regarding Mahone II & Dau Tieng. Any recollections of those bases will be appreciated also.

I saw an entry here by Bill Thomas, Co, C 2/27 mortar platoon 1967-68. I think I served with you (him) November '66-67. I was squad leader, platoon sergeant. If you remember me I'd like to hear from you. "Schmitty"
None of you know me,but I think some of you may have served at Guantanamo Bay in 1993. I was a chaplain assistant at the time, and have great memories. Wonder if anybody recalls being there.
I was with C/2/27 2nd platoon from 12/64 - 12/67. Came over with the division. opened and settled Cu Chi. SSgt. Rivera and a few others were responsible for getting the paint and for the mess hall and the bunks through some horse trading. We had a great team when we came ashore at Vung Tau. My Platoon leader was 2nd lt. Thomas Ray. 2nd platoon was always first in and last out on our missions. Took some casualties, mostly wounded, until Attleboro. That was a mess. This is a nice site you have put together. Welcome home.
