Hi Big John, we both served in C/2/27 Wolfhounds at different times and were both Wolfhounds in Nam at the same time but in different Companies. I was Charlie Co acting 1SG and then Field first. When I returned in 69, I was 1st Platoon Sgt in D/1/27 for about 4 months til a Chi Com grenade broke me of the habit. Oh, yeah, I was also a Wolfhound in D/1/327 in Korea 1951. You gotta know I love the Hounds, finest soldiers anytime, anywhere. Welcome home, friend. \”Sgt Rock\””

55 Bob Kelly Sammamish, WA (east of Seattle) Found website thru, who else, The Man BIG JOHN Quintrell. My cousin was 1st Lt. Donald W. Ide. He was 1st Platoon Lead, Co. C. First of all, thanks to everyone who served this great country and sacrificed their lives, limbs, sanity and blood for the rest of us back home. My cousin, 1st Lt. Donald W. Ide, was 1st Platoon leader, scouting an area with 2nd Platoon the day before he was supposed to lead his group into the area, and was unfortunately killed May 25, 1969. I was almost 15 when Don died and had only a few fond memories of him, mainly my 3 brothers wrestling with him the year before in our back yard in Edmonds, WA, promptly and politely \”kicked out butts\”. He was my father\’s favorite nephew and my hero. Two years later I joined the Marines at 17. The \”Mini\” Vietnam Wall Memorial has once again made it\’s trip to the Puget Sound area (I missed it a few years ago). I searched thewall-usa.com website for a panel and line number and found it along with a huge surprise, a picture of Don in Trang Bang in April \’69. I was overwhelmed and grateful to have seen his smiling face once again. Quite blown away to tell you the truth. Don was a great man and I still miss him immensely, especially after having seen his picture. I welcome any communications and stories from anyone that knew or had served with him, and hopefully some more pictures anyone has. It sounds like the Wolfhounds are a grand bunch of guys, I hope to hear from you soon. Don is survived by his sister Kathy and brother Doug, also a Vietnam Vet. His father was a retired general, working around the world for the State Dept. (Beirut, New Delhi, Hong Kong, Vancouver B.C.) and drowned while fishing with his grandkids off Camano Island, WA. His mother passed away in October \’98 from heart failure. The whole family is very special to me, but none more than Don. I truly miss that man. You Wolfhounds stick together – life is really short – we\’re only on this planet TDY then it\’s off to the BIG reunion! God Bless you all. Thanks BIG JOHN, I appreciate what you\’ve done!

64 Edward Lotterman St. Paul, MN (originally from Chandler, MN) “Found website from email from John Quintrell. In Vietnam in 1970, Company A, (Admin) 173rd Abn Bde, LZ English. I went through BCT at Ft. Lewis WA, Sept-Dec 1967 with Robert Cohen. I am pretty sure he was the Robert Cohen who was killed in your unit. I have a platoon photo showing him and I. Have cropped out a smaller shot showing just him. We went to different AITs, so never saw him after December 1967. We were not close friends but were in same squad and slept two bunks apart. If anyone wants a photo, I am glad to email it. It is amazing that 36 years have passed. I was in the 82nd for awhile after AIT and jump school, had a Platoon Sgt E7 (promoted before they added E-8 and E-9) in the late 1950s. He had combat-jumped in Sicily and in Normandy and with the 187th RCT in Korea. A good guy who had gone through alot. All of us 18 and 19 year olds thought he was an old man. He was 44 years old! And that was less than 24 years after his D-Day jump. Now I am 53 and Cohen would be close to 60 if he were alive. (original message dated December 16, 2004)

And thank you and your wife for setting up this website. It\’s amazing! I just got the letter you sent that actually went through Las Vegas, where my daughter lives and found me here in Keizer.
This has brought back so many memories. You can\’t imagine how many times I have thought about folks in 2nd Plt.
Here\’s a little history. After 7 months with the Company, I was transfered to 3d Bde HQ, where I worked as a clerk for Col. Mattox, our Brigade Commander. He was the Col. that flew his own chopper and was quite heroic. I remember when he landed one evening when we were out on a sweep and he and SGM White stayed with us for the ambush patrol that night.
After Vietnam, I was stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas, where I became a tanker and tank commander. Once off active duty, I guess I didn\’t have enough, got into the Reserve system and into Special Forces. After a total of 26 years of jumping out of planes and humping rucks, I retired as a Master Sergeant. Go figure.
I am now a Lieutenant with the Salem Police Department, and ready to retire. I am still married to the same girl, almost 37 years and have two daughters and 3 wonderful grandkids. I am convinced this is all because of all of you.
Thanks. (original message dated March 3, 2005)

I thank every single one of you wolfhounds for your great service in defending our country. Mr. Paul Naso came to visit our class and it was a great honor to have him visit us. He talked to us about some of his experiences during his time at war. I find it really amazing that many of you still remain in contact till this day. Doc Turner I really appreciate what you did to defend our country. I thank you and all other veterans out there. Mr. Paul Naso talked to us about how whenever he would receive a care package from home, many of you would gather around to watch him open it up. I brought this up because in one of your pictures you talk about Mr. Naso bringing deli products maybe out of a guilty conscience for not sharing his care packages. Thanks again to all wolfhounds and to Mr. Paul Naso for sharing his photos and medals with us.

Here is a website to our blog site where you can get to know us better and check out some of the things that we do.

I have had the pleasure of getting him to one or more reunions, or bringing his son home before and after he is shipped over to fight for this great country of ours, and occasionally to assist a friend of Tommy\’s who may need a bit of help. before I was a travel agent, i worked on the road in rock and roll. We were in DC with the Grateful Dead, and some of the crew guys were going to visit the wall.We went at night when most tourists were not there, and many soldiers of varying degrees were. We all took extra tshirts, clothes etc, to leave for some of the less fortunate. I want you all to know my life was changed the night we spent at the Memorial.People spoke, hugged, cired, and meditated, lost in their own thoughts, their own nightmares. I was young during the war. I wrote to two boys who went from my home town, neither returned.But I was touched. And I just wanted to thank each and every one of you for what you did, for what you do for us. It does not go unnoticed. Peace and love,
Amy

6674 Robert E. Lutz robertelutz@sbcglobal.net Bay City Michigan Recently went back to Vietnam with a tour company geared toward the vet. Had a great time and would recomend it for anyone. It has changed so much that it\’s unbelievable. Everything is so moderinized and built up. It is a whole new world. That\’s funny, we used to call the USA world. I would recomend it to anyone who has been there, but use a tour company. They take care of everything which makes it so much easier. I was with the 2/27 infantry in 1967. Could not get on the 25th infantry base as it is now under thier army\’s control, but did drive by it. Great trip!

7409 Weronika Weronika Weronika Weronika I feel like Paul didn\’t want to announce to Alex\’s famliy that he was Alex\’s therapist. Alex may have kept it a secret that he was in therapy and Paul may not have wanted to betray his client\’s trust regardless of if he had passed away. I agree with Sarah in that the comment could be representative of their new relationship. But I\’d probably use the word escape instead of hide because they are using this new relationship to escape each of their own problems in their life. Clearly I think that the story Paul told about his father leaving his mom and re-marrying a younger woman made Laura uncomfortable. The story is strikingly similar to their situation and hearing Paul tell how he is following in his fathers footsteps could have made Laura feel as though she was leading Paul down the wrong path. She could have felt responsible for this and this could have lead her to feeling extremely uncomfortable and then leaving. I don\’t think Laura has real feelings for Paul. I think that her feelings are clouded and that eventually she will realize this. I agree with Morgan and that a lot of her basis for reasons that her and Paul should be together are on very basic and shallow things. When Paul finally tells her something real and intimate, his father leaving his mom for a younger woman, she clearly doesn\’t like what she hears and it causes her enough discomfort to make her leave. – Joey Liner

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.
