I am a British veteran and Vietnam reenactor, and I found your website after I read John Quintrells book about his tour of duty. I just want to say thank you for telling the stories of what it was really like in Vietnam. The sacrifices that you made over there will never be forgotten.
I got John Quintrells fine book, My 365 DAYS; because it takes place in the same AO and time frame as my tour with the Red Catchers, 199th Light Infantry Brigade, Sep. 1968/69. Not many books from that AO and time that I am aware of. John's book really took me back and he has my deep gratitude for writing it. I wrote a short memoir about my tour, so I know that we have to emotionally relive the madness when writing it out. In my last combat operation on the Vam Co Dong, in an LCM, I incurred a penetrating head wound during an RPG ambush. I was extremely lucky to have survived that. After recovering as it were, the Army retired me permanently.
I just ran across your website. I was with A Co25th Avn Bn Little Bears April 66 - October 67. We took you guys into and out of many an LZ all over our AO.
My husband Mark Larner served in Vietnam from March 69-March 70. He remembers being at Fort Washington, then went to the Sugar Mill. His unit comprised of 17 men lived with the ARVAN.
I was with Delta company at Diamond One. Our company had the north half of the fire base and Charlie company the south half. The gooks came in on the south half. After the fight, I was assigned on one of the destroyed Charley company bunkers. I still remember the sight of the dead GI’s still in the bunker. Charley company took a beating that night. If I remember right, there were 17 GI’s killed that night. Delta co. lost one. Hell of a night.
My uncle Freddy J Hannah was a special man to my mother Ora Hannah, which all the veterans are very special. and we thank all of them. he was the only brother she had and I was only 2 when he passed, but I want to know more about my uncle. He lost his life on 11/5/1968 and we have very little pictures of him. we would love to know his life and how he effected everyone around him. if you have any pictures or comments of him please email them to me. GOD BLESS THEM ALL!
Good Morning All, Just stopping in to say hi and , "Welcome Home" and Thank y'all does your service! Was wondering if there is anyone here, who remembers my pop, Frank "Corny" Cornelius?
It was early this am at a Wal-Mart in Hamburg, Pennsylvania when I overheard 2 brothers talking... one had the Wolf Hound insignia on his hat... I was honored to be among the hero's I have held close to my heart ❤... The one gentleman's wife was present also... She was an Army nurse who served in Vietnam also !!! I gave her the biggest hug I could and welcomed them all home ... What a day !!!
Hail Wolfhounds! I just ran into this site today and wanted to drop in for a second. I was not with you back then as I was born in February of '68 and my Dad was Navy over in Vietnam. But I am a Wolfhound of a different era. I was C co. 2/27 Wolfhounds when they were brought back from zero strength after Vietnam. We were at Ft. Ord California and in the 7th ID rather than the 25th. We were the first to receive the CIB since Vietnam for our part in the Invasion of Panama in '89-'90. I know it was nowhere near as bad as what you all went through. I have been to many many sites and pages about the Wolfhounds and haven't seen a single posting that was negative about this unit. Even heard from the son of a Wolfhound that served with them in 1913. He said his father loved this unit. I am proud to have served in this unit and been part of YOUR legacy. I mostly wanted to tell all of you one more thing.....THANK YOU!!!!

Always a Wolfhound, eds
Yo Wolfhounds just checking in Hope all you Dogs Of War to have a good day !!! Always a Wolfhound, eds
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 just wanted to let you guys know that one of your brothers, Doug Wise was in C 2/27 in Vietnam in 68 and 69: He passed away yesterday 14 July 2020 from cancer in Kansas City. He was my brother and my veteran brother. Thank you all for your service.
Lets remember Micheal (Mike ) Edwin Harr. Class of 68 Blountville HS, TN SP4 Killed in action 4/15/69 BSM & OC - PH Rest in Peace oh brave one. Forever in our hearts
Just wanted all of you Wolfhounds to know I still think of you and keep you in my prayers. Especially all of my buddies who didn't make it home. Coy, Forrest, Freddie, Jack, Patrick and others who will forever be young in my memory. Thanks Big John for getting this guestbook started and maintaining it. Thanks also for being the link that so many of us have used to find our brothers in arms. May God bless all.

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.
