I came back for another visit. I have been reading the guestbook, as I did not do so my first visit. I was probably one of
the last groups to be authorized the VSM and RVCM, as it was awarded to me during my TDY visit. When I close my
eyes and think about it I can almost smell Thailand. I spent 16 months in Thailand with the USAF. Most of it was at
Tahkli although I did spend a month in Korat after we packed up Tahkli and moved it in July and August of 74. I think
there was still some American activity there until September. I also had a couple of TDYs to Don Muang to guard the
US Mail from Bangkok to Tahkli. I am not sure why I was there to guard it because I was unarmed. I think it was more
to just make sure the driver didn't divert it to sell on the black market. It was a pleasant change of pace. Room and
board in Bangkok on Uncle Sam. For an AGE repairman that was a real nice change of pace from the hectic life of
ground support of aircraft maintenance. I think of all the ground troops in Nam that got to go home because I and my
brothers were willing to do our jobs, and do it well. I even spent some time coordinating in operations telling my
friends which aircraft needed equipment.

Being in Thailand during the 73-74 period, we continued to fly in support of the troops that were evacuating South
Vietnam.This may surprise some of the ground forces that got to go home, but some of us were still there involved in
other campaigns that were not widely known. Air war in Laos and Cambodia. The war was over for the grunts (I am
proud of the job you guys did)we were still at war, with all the risks associated with airwar. I was not in Vietnam, but
I was still was treated as a "baby killer" and spat on.

I was looking over my papers the other day and discovered that I was destined to another duty station that had slipped
my mind. I discovered that I had a preliminary assignment for NKP Thailand for March 1973. These papers were
issued in 1972. The reason I had forgotten about this was that from that point onward I had orders for Da Nang and
Tan Son Nhut after that issue. Both times I was to report for transport to Vietnam they were recinded within days of
getting on the bird at Travis. My original fate of NKP for March of 1973 finally ended up as a TDY assignment to
Tahkli. My government had me coming and going. I wonder how many others were bounced around like this.

My government recognizes me as a full fledge Vietnam Veteran. While I did not suffer the same things that ground
forces "in-country" have had to deal with, I do my part to hold my government up to its responsibility of providing the
resources for treatment and other benefits deserved by our trooops. Hopefully, I will never need them.

the "bun doi" article was very interreseting and exiting for me, as i am the german equivalence of a bun doi...a left
behind "besatzungskind" or in common german: a negermischling, referring to the african heritage of my GI father.
thousnds of us "mischlinge" in Germany made simmilar, or even worse experiences. Unfortunately, I never
experienced any american enthusiasm outing these conditions. Additionally, we experience a severe blockade from the
american agencies, when we request information about our fathers.this is an essential problem: The Besatzundskind
who can not provide sufficient info about her or his father will not have a US citizenship stated by American
consulates, and remains therefore doomed to spend the entire lifespan as the dust of the earth for germans. the german
society and values are still extremely impacted by the conditioning of the third reich. most of us were abandoned from
our german mothers, as our american fathers left to have fun in the next countries the wetre stationed. i was one of the
very view mischlinge, who was blessed with a father who at least made the effort to acnowledge paternityship in my
hometown before he left to go to vietnam,- i never heard of him again.his signature ultimately opened the doors to
american agencies, that finally stated my US citizenship in 1999. 3 months later, i moved to the US with a few $ in my
pocket, and a non-citizen 3 year old son. Although we sruggle, i feel very relieved. in the streets of NYC people wish
me a "blessed day, as the same age group in germany used to announce that Hitler "forgot" me when i used to pass
them. But it was worse, when i was a child and defenseless: any discrimination, any abuse...Name it:I've been there.
every single experience caused by the left behind besatzungskind label. this label was a societal symbol: if not even her
parents want her , than she's free to do with whatever pleases you, because the mischling "is inferior"...not even the US
officials would make an attempt to protect her. I feel safe now. US Caucasians do not give me any problems.
Moreover, they are very interested in my story, and encoraged me to, one day, write and publish it. Yet, thousands of
us have to live under the constant impact of nazi offspring in germany, and it is upsetting me that our fathers and their
peers never turned arround even once to see how a society that killed millons of jews and gypsies-considering them as
too inferior to liuve- would deal with the abandoned and helpless children of those who won two wars over these
fanatic nationalists. Here, the terms child neglection and endangering achild's welfare, or even life suggests itself
automatically. and i am not only pointing at the nazis and vietcong that we were left with, i am pointing at the
american policies,affiliations and inreponsibillities, as well as the ignorant attitude of uncle sam. but most of al i
point at our GI fathers, especially the african american branch, who should have known better, due to their own
experiences of segregation in the USA. After all, it was the pride in my american hertage, that guided me through the
35 years that i had to live in germany, battling constant racial profiling, surviving countless rapes, as well as
permanent attempts to physically and verbally humiliate me. it was the pride in a fictive picture of a strong man
dresses in US army gear, -the man who made 50 percent of my genes...the consciosness that i am a war baby, and that
everyone who wants a war with me can have it...all that was on my mind when i battled with skinheads, who soon
realized that i can not be broken, because i was proud. but where is your compassion for us, fathers and those to be?
how many of us did you leave behind? how many arabian american, yugoslavian american did you make, as you had
fun overseas? how many more of us will be left behind in afganistan , pakistan, etc.? and what will they go through, as
their cultural enfironment is definitely not ready for them? surely, these children will have to pay the price for your
actions and politics, just as i , and the bui doi? Wheater your goverment will acnowlege the cruelties that are
performed on them , if the performing society remains a political enemy.

Spent time at Udorn 65-66, Bien Hoa 67 and NKP 74-75. First two tours I was a flying fireman with Rescue on the
"Pedro" and last time an Assitant Fire Chief at NKP. Great tours, interesting experiences and many stories to tell.
Would not trade the time for anything different. Great web site.

I'm glad someone had the ambition to put a site up like this. As a REMF, I always found it difficult to explain what it
was I did(radar maintenance and installation)to grunts. Actually, they understood, and almost always ended a
conversation with, "I wish I was doing that, instead of what I did".

If anyone from the 485th GEEIA stops by, drop me an Email. We can compare notes.

First time at site--will be back. Phan Rang Air Base '67-68. A few memories: THE BEACH. But not the cattle car
ride to get there. Thap Cham vil and the "Strip". Bomb me Bomb (33) beer with the formaldahide taste. USO club tape
center and the outdoor movie theater. The RMK/BRJ chow hall and how ungodly hot it was inside. During Tet
watching Puff do his thing from the NCO club on the hill. Scared half to death in the dark between the runways when
the rockets started hitting. Calls home from the MARS station. Beer and darts at the Aussie camp (Let's all go and piss
on the Aussie camp, piss on the Aussie camp---etc; to the tune of "The Old Gray Mare") and their equally ribald
responses. "Crazy" John Clancy, "Bullit" Rich Lively, Billy Buice's frig, and "Sad Ray" Barber. Tinsley and his
Motown concerts--the same guy got a leg wound leaving country. The GCA unit that was OTS as much as in service
(the same one we could not get to pass flight check back in the world). It might have cost one pilot his life but allowed
us to save a few too.

Came by again to visit your great site again after a year and a half. Have recommended it to other ASA vets for it's
wonderful sensibility regarding our experience in Asia and have taken the liberty to list it as a bookmark in my new
club ASAbyINVITE, a yahoo group composed primarily but not exclusively of Army Security Agency Vets for civil
discussion of subjects of mutual interest, military as well as civilian. You and folks here are invited to join. Click on

It was very interesting to search in on this web site. I was a REMF from 2-67 to 2-68. I was an electronics technician
in the USN stationed in lovely down town danang, then at the Marble Mountain transmitter site. From all that I read
and hear today and from the veterans that I meet it seemed that I was the only REMF. Everyone else was a helocopter
pilot, Green Beret or if in the Navy then a SEAL. It was lonely until I found this home for others who served as well
as they could doing their job to keep the fighting men fed, clothed, informed and armed. I added the site to my
favorites and will be back. Welcome home fellow REMF, well done.

Thank you for this website, which honors all of those who did their best to support those on the front lines. All did
their part, and each part was essential to carry out the mission at hand.

I served in Vietnam in the US Army at Vung Tau, first in the 553 Ordnance Company (DAS) and then in Head
Quarters Maintenance Supply Support Company, 2 Maintenance Battalion from 21 June 1966 to 17 June 1967. In 3
February 1968 I was once again back in Vietnam, four days into the Tet Offensive, not a pleasant time to be in
country. I was assigned to the 305 Support and Service Company, USARPAC Unit PCS. We remained in country until
12 March 1968, at which time our Company received classified Orders to leave Vietnam. Once over the ocean, we
were told we had been assigned to Camp Vayama, near Sattahip Thailand to support and supply the Thai Army which
was entering the war in Vietnam. On 26 August 1968 I received Special Orders for temporary duty assignment to
assist Capt. Schance at the 558 Support and Service Battalion at Kanchanaburi, Thailand. Since serving in the above
units, I have been trying to research them to learn of their history. Does any have a suggestion or lead where I might
learn about the history of these units? Your help would be appreciated.

I wanted to rate you #1 GI, but your scale runs 10 as high, not a Nam thing. But, I did want to take a moment and
thank you for your efforts and to give you a well deserved "WELCOME HOME BROTHER".

I served my tour in the Vietnamese Naval Shipyard in Saigon as a member of the US Naval Advisory Group Vietnam.
I have always been proud of my service which I did with honor and earnest. I have never apologized to anyone for
being a Viet-Nam Veteran.

Thank you.

Proud to have served in the Rear With the Gear with Bob Wheatleyl. Our contribution to the Vietnam War will
probably be always be classifed. We served in silence, but we served. We gave willingly and sacrificially, and we did in
deed GIVE. On this Memorial Day of 2002, we in Security Service remember our fallen bretheren who lost their lives
in SEA. You will always be with us in spirit my brothers. You are not and NEVER will be, forgotten. Vince Wuwert

I served in Korat Thailand with the 379th Sig Bn, then spent a few months with the 105th Si Detachment in Bangkok.
I was in Thailand from Sept 1965 to September 1966. I wonder if we qualified for the Vietnam Service medal? I
know some people in Thailand who did get the Vietnam medal? I went through basic at Ft Dix in 1963, spent some
time at 7th army HQ's in Stuttgart Grmany before heading to asia.

Bob, I have enjoyed very much looking at your website. Keep up the good work. I have still got some more to read
befor exiting. I was stationed at Utapao 1969-70. I was a B-52D Crew Chief. I had the very distinct priviledge of
flying with some of the bravest flight crews SAC had. I WAS NOT a flight crew member. Maintenance crews had a
allotment of flying slots and I guess maybe (CRS) I flew 6 or 7 times out of UT. Your response to Hamm was in very
good taste Brother..

Strangely enough, I find myself signing my own guest book. This is in response to the entry immediately below this
one. I have already responded by email directly to the author of that entry. I respect his war record as he has stated it,
and I respect his right to his opinions. However, in hopes of enlightening him and others who may view this page, I am
posting my response here, in the same forum in which he posted his thoughts.

My reply:

Hello John,

I'm glad you enjoyed the Viet-REMF web site, and I appreciate you taking the time to let me know your feelings. I
find it sad though that some don't realize the significant role the troops outside the borders of Vietnam played in the
war. There were countless thousands of combat troops whose "fat was pulled out of the fire" by air missions flown
from bases outside of the borders of Vietnam. Those missions would never have been flown without the efforts of the
troops stationed there. Yes, I was only an interpreter stationed in Thailand, but I went where my nation asked me to go
and performed the job I was asked to do. I would like to think that the intelligence gathered by my efforts and others
was of some benefit to the war effort and in some way may have helped to save some American lives.

That's not the same as slogging through rice paddies and seeking out and engaging the enemy in a firefight. I would
not begin to compare the two. But my tour was not entirely without risk. There were guerilla attacks in the
countryside of up country Thailand where I was stationed, and there were fatal sapper attacks by NVA (that's right,
NVA) forces on the air base while I was there. The names of some of the men I served with in Thailand are on The
Wall in D.C., killed in Thailand by Communist forces. I would never attempt to claim that I was a combat troop, or
anything approaching that. But I am a Vietnam veteran. My government thinks so, or they would not have awarded the
VSM and VCM to me, as is documented on my DD 214. My claiming that which is rightfully mine in no way
diminishes what is yours or anyone else's.

Respectfully,

It is truly sad that you want to think of yourself as a Vietnam Veteran, having been an Intel analyst in Thailand, you
don't qualify as a Vietnam Veteran. You do qualify as an era vet. You can try to change REMF to anything you wish,
you have that right, howevr, I feel it is terribly sad that you attach yourself to the REMF's of Vietnam. I served in
Vietnam twice, 1966-67 and 1969-70. Both times I was a combat medic, once with the 199th Light Infantry Brigade
and once with the LRRP/ARPS Platoon of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment. I have a Combat Medical Badge,
Silver Star, 2 Bronze Stars "V" Device, OLC, 3 Purple Hearts (2 OCL) and a variety of other decorations from that
place. I have no problem with our REMFs. I know and realize without them, we'd have had no beans and no bullets.
When I call a person a REMF, it is with a certain pride and decorum, not disgust for without my REMFs (for they are
my Rear Eschelon Military Forces), I wouldn't have survived either tour. But I find it strange that you wish to attach
yourself as a Vietnam REMF, while having listened to radio converstaions in Thailand or translating things for the Air
Force. One, you are not a Vietnam Veteran (era maybe), 2. I too qualify as a REMF, for several times I had to go to
Siagon for supplies and treatment. I'll tell you that you can't hold a candle to real Vietnam REMF's. Although we pick
on them, we also love them and really needed them then. What hole of emptiness are you trying to fill by claiming to
be a Vietnam REMF? Just know that you aren't and never will be, you simply don't qualify and leave it at that. The
site is pretty good, it is the content that brings it down. You see, I'd die for any of my REMF's, but wouldn't cross the
street for you. I'm sorry you missed out on what you obviously wish now you had been a part of, but the fact is you
weren't. Let it go and get on with your life.

I never dreamed that I would find a web site put together by a 203X1. It is excellent, and I am recommending that any
friends and relatives interested in the experience(s) that I had will get a pretty good idea of what it was all about by
reading "Memoirs of an REMF."

I was in the MAFAC program from October 1967 to May 1968. I then had a lovely summer at Goodbuddy Airplane
Patch, and then was with the 6924th Security Squadron from October 1968 to October 1969. Half of that time was at
Danang AFB and the other half was spent on Monkey Mountain, a relatively delightful experience compared to being
at the main base at Danang. I was, fortunately, on Monkey Mountain when the ammo dumps blew in 1969.

Reading the "Memoirs" and guest book entries has revived memories long forgotten.

After Vietnam, I had a couple of months at home and then spent the rest of my time in the service at Linkou, with an
excellent TDY at Osan.

I certainly hope that other folks who served in security squadrons in SEA during the war surf in and visit this site.

Thanks again.

I was in the Army '66-67 199th Lt Inf Bde. 7th support Bn. in Vn & worked as a radio remairman,truck driver,guard,
prisoner transporter,shit burner & anything else the brass monkies could come up with for me to do, hey it all paid the
same & all I wanted to do was get out alive. I've always felt we as REMFS were short changed, because we didn't let
our knckels drage the ground 24/7 & kill anything that moved, but were would the grunts be if it weren't for us
REMFS ? They shure wouldn't be here with us bitching about them damn REMFS, would they ? No 'cause we took
care of there asses & did a damn good job of it, 'cause a hell of a lot of 'em made it back !!!! No thanks needed guys, it
was just our job. Thanks all of you REMFS out there, for a job well done. slj

I did not serve in NAM, but my husband did, (Army 1966) and I am with him there every day, "he is still there" so to
speak, as are many more wonderful persons, but sadly with "stolen lives". How can anyone have a "normal" life after
such CRUEL REJECTION by our country. I put Hanoi Jane in the same catagory as the terrorist traitor from our own
contry, as evil as what he did was, it is still not as bad a what she did! God Bless all veterans of NAM, and their loved
ones. May peace be yours today.

You have mis-defined REMF. To me and most people of my ilk a REMF is a guy in the rear who cries about how
hard it was for them and all the stereotypical stories they come up with. I got got no problem with rear area troopers
who own up to it

THE GUEST BOOK IS *SO* DIFFICULT TO READ WITH IT'S SMALL BLACK TEXT AGAINST THE *VERY*
BUSY BAMBOO BACKGROUND. SUGGESTION: REMOVE THE BACKGROUND IMAGE AND JUST LET IT
BE PLAIN BLACK TEXT ON A WHITE BACKGROUND. LIKE WORDS ON A PRINTED PAGE. EASY TO
READ.

I've been linked to that site by M. R. Wheatley. I'm doing a research on the Vietnam warl; research corresponding to
the International relation between US and Soviet intervention in the whole history. I did not finish to read all the
informations on that site, not even the memoirs of Seargent Weathly: being a french man of the province of Quebec
make things a little bit harder for me.

Any way, thanks for the good information displayed on that site, and thanks to all of you for the courage that you've
gave to the other generation after you; specially in that time of terrorisme crisis.

Thanks a lot,

Christian Parent.

I think that this is a very nice and crative thing too do. I think that this couldn't of been better and I really like the music
affect. I am very thankful that those people in the war died for us and sacrificed their lives for us. They did what they
can for our freedom for today so I am very greatful.

From one REMF to another. What people conveniently forget is that we REMF's were also shot at. I was in a bunker
at Tan Son Nhut, Saigon, during Tet 1968 when Charlie came over the permiter fence. It was exciting times.

I was in the USAFSS too.I was a radio intercept analyst. I think you were a 203.. I know a few jokes about them.I just
barely skimmed your site. I will read it in detail later. It is very well written. Yes, that was all so very long ago, but the
memory is still so strong. I missed the Philippines for years after I left.I liked Thailand too;wasn't there long. Catch

I love this site! I saw your signature on Vicker's site in the Guestbook.

I'm a REMF also and very proud of it. Although, I have great respect for all my brothers and sisters incountry
Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

Spent a year at Korat RTAFB, Thailand with the 388th Security Police Squadron, K-9's, from Dec 71 to Dec 72.

Yea, I know, I'm a REMF, Ramp Rat, Ground Pounding Puppy Pusher. I'm proud to be a Combat Security Police
Patrol/Sentry Dog Handler.

I protected all the other REMF's at Korat, and ensured that you got a good night's sleep. I handled Sarge (7months)
and Blackie (5months).

I spent 4 yrs AF, and 16 Navy with service also in Desert Shield/Storm from August 5th, 1990 to April 24th, 1991. I
retired in 95 with over 20 in, and are 30% VA disabled.

Hello - I'm wife of A/C mechanic, Vietnam 65-66, just had 35th anniversary. Read every page of your site. Will try to
get hubby to look at it. Think it would help. On his return home, he was told by family to keep it to himself that he had
been to Vietnam - they were ashamed. That hurt him as much as anything ever did. To this day, if anyone asks if he is a
vet, he gets that look like he expects to be clobbered. He is proud of what he did, salvaging planes, making sure they
were safe to fly again. I won't say more; I wasn't there, right? But I've been here for 35 years. Ellen

I was stationed with the 37th sig spt bn,Da Nang Air Base,Army,I came from Germany with a security clearnce,so I
spent more time on the road then I did at base because I could go into where they used the Kryto equiptment,I was in
operation Lam Song 719,1971 and everywhere between Chu Lai and Quang Tri and in places that didn't have names or
exist as far as anybody was concerned.While I didn't hump the bushes I'm proud of what I did do, so let the Hero's say
what they want,with out us there would be a lot more names on the Wall and a lot more parents with out their
children!

Worked as a Morse Intercept Operator with Det. 4, 6922nd SW at the RamasunStation, which was home to the Army
7th RRFS, in Udorn Province Thailand about eight miles south of the air base at Udorn. I am proud to say that I
served along side with the Bob Wheatley on Able Flight, during my time of service which ran from April of 68 until
March of 69. It was not until recently that I was informed of the importance of listening to enemy communications.
The duty was oft times boring and fromtime to time we made our own fun inside the windowless compound building.
We used to trap field mice that made their way into the building by way of the wiring floor tunnels. We'd catch about
six to ten of them and then take them down to the Army electronic maintenance shop and then watch as they dumped
all of them into a cleaned up "butt" can and then attatch a couple of alligator clips to the can and a 12v DC field crank
generator and watch them all die. One time we caught one and took it to the latrine and put it into a mop bucket and
watched it drown. Some of my friends years later thought it was cruel to do that to innocent mice, but I told them they
were loaded with disease and it was our duty to "dispose" of them because they had illegally entered a secure building.
Also recall the night the Air base at Udorn was hit by Vietnames guerilla sappers in July of 68. . Our Mission supe
was a guy named George "kingfish" Stephens. He came into out room and ordered no one to leave for any reason. A
minute later he told us the air base was under attack. My only thought then was that I had had my last meal, and it was
awful. Ham sandwiches, and cold coffee.Fortunately the attack was limited to the air base and the Ramasun Station
was still intact when we woke up the next day. Still..to say again over 32 years later...it was very scary. We had no way
to protect ourselves. No weapons, no escape paths, nothing. I appreciate beyond any flattering words I may be able to
muster, the wonderful work Bob had done on this site. I am also saddened each year when I recall on Memorial Day
some of our brother intercept operators/analysts/linguists/and air crew we have lost due to hostile fire. Our duty was
to be vigilant, and that we were, but with freedom, comes responsbility to defend it. We all did our duty. And has Bob
has put it so aptly, WE ALL GAVE. I salute all who were REMF's, and recall fondly my days with the USAF/Security
Service in Thailand. "Communciations, for Defense, done swiftly, and on a global basis". God Bless ya all. From a
gracefully aging and very proud Vietnam-Remf. Sgt. Vince Wuwert Able Flight "Aristocrat" Det. -4 6922nd SW

I was at Cu Chi with the 725th Maintenance Bn. from June of 67 through June of 68. My team was responsible for
operating the NCR 500 computer , on which we administered the 25th Division-level maintenance supply operation.
My brother served at Lai Khe with the 2nd/22nd Mech of the 1st Infantry Division as a VTR operator from January 67
thru January 68. He just missed dodging Charlie's 122s during the Tet offensive. We even got to have a Christmas 67
reunion at Cu Chi. During this same period, my brother-in-law was a truck driver at Dau Tieng, and my best friend did
artillery from Tay Ninh. We all got back OK, except for my nephew,( a sniper got him in February 1970) We all
counted it a privilege to have lent our support to the brave men out on the front line. It was no picnic in base camp.
Your web site is visually appealing, and a great forum for facilitating the healing process. We REMFs carried away
some feelings from the war, too. Thanks for providing this site.

I am a Michigan draftee, schooled and trained with a 11B10 MOS. I was assigned to the 82nd Airborne Div upon my
arrival to Vietnam in late May 68. The 82nd, in its infinite wisdom, and also time of need, saw fit to train me to be
their pay specialist with CO A Spt BN, Bien Hoa & Phu Loi, May 68-69. I clerked during the day, pulled perimeter
guard every fifth nite for the year. I'd like to acknowledge the 82nd for selecting me to be part of their team. I would
also like to remind those that may read this, the 82nd, after arriving in-country Feb 68, ended their 90 day temporary
duty assignment May 68, resulting in a large turnover of personnel. This required the 82nd to rebuild back to brigade
strength with non-airborne qualified personnel. I am proud to report, that the rumor we all heard during basic, that
only bird sh-t and fools fall out of the sky, is not exactly true. I don't know much about the 101st,and really not much
about the rest of the folks that participated, but those I served with during my tour with the 82nd Airborne Div, were
the finest group of America's sons and daughters that this nation has ever produced. For those who chose, or those
who served their nation after receiving the "greetings and salutations" call to arms, I salute you one and all, my
brothers and sisters. And to my family whose names are etched upon the wall, I will never forget you all, as all I can do
is remember. I would be willing to do it all again though. Call me! Peace be with you :]

I was a crew chief with the 558 TFS at Cam Rhan Bay from October of 68 to oct.69. It's very true we worked long
hours to support the combat troops. I always admired those guys for what they did, but I'm happy to see that you are
here to give recognition for our effort. Keep up the good work.

In my opinion, the Viet-REMF website is a very worthwhile, informative, and much needed website because it is
important for ALL individuals to fully realize that WARS are fought by our Armed Forces personnel by joining
together and by fighting in a "Joint Effort"; and, therefore, ALL veterans who SERVED in ANY CAPACITY are
VERY IMPORTANT. Semper Fidelis 0331 (machine gunner / infantry) Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 26th Marine

This is a great site,that more Viet vets should be made aware exists,because it really clears up alot of questions that
many "grunts susch as I only guessed at.I was a Grunt w/ D.Co 4/503-173d Airborne Brigade,1969-71. As such I was
one of those that didnt really understand REMFs,only to complain and wish/hope for a rear job.I believe that most of
the resentment is jealously .. The closest/best I was ever offered was a door gunner/SLICK,(after my first
extension)and after seein a couple of them go down ,figured I was better off where i was! I have in the past,but never
on such a large scale really thanked any of you for a job well done.So,all of you REMFs out there I want to thank
you,and as Viet Vets I hold you as a brother of 'the line',because i know that WITHOUT you,there would have been no
line companies! Everything that you did,gave, and provided was essential to my survival.THANK YOU VERY
MUCH for being there..

I was searching for any information on the MACV Provisional Defense Force. I was stationed at MACV HQ from
Aug 67 to Aug 68. I worked in MACV-CID. I remember the Green Beret LTC who was our Commander when the
PDF first started, he was a real go for it type. Still have the patch that was designed for the PDF, and your site is the
first one that I found that mentioned the MACV PDF. Good Work enjoyed the site.

I was an "REMF" stationed at Tan Son Nhut AB (CBPO)1971-72 with the USAF. I was also stationed at Nakhom
Phanom RTAFB (NKP) "Naked Fannie" 1974-75 (CBPO)(closed base out). I always get ribbed for being a REMF
especially by the other services. I get remarks like the Air Force sends their officers off to die etc. As an Admin type I
was always on extra duties (sandbag, Security Police "Auggie Dog" etc.). I always had pride in what I did and would
always volunteer for "flare kicker" or shovel brass on a C-130 Gunship (never selected). I have a lot of fond memories
of SEA and will be travelling to the PI (Angeles City) (it's still there) next month for a "holiday". Glad to see a site that
recognizes the majority. Nice site. Will keep visiting. A PACAF weenie. Bubba sends.

Very nice site. Straight to the point and very well stated. I was, for the most part, in the rear alot. I was SeaBee and we
did spend a lot of time with Marines in the field. There were many great times I remember, both in the field and in the
rear. There were also those times that I was scared shitless, literly. My philosphy is that if one served in the military,
they deserve to be recognized for that hardship. There are more that have never served than thos of us who have. If you
missed digging dirt while chunks of lead fly all around you, good, you were lucky. Anyway, I enjoyed coming to this
site and will pass it along to other friends.

from 23 Sept 65 until 10 Jan 66. I was then placed TDY to the 105th Sig Det (Svc) in Bangkok. My MOS was that of

I'll be back for an entire reading of the site. I was a grunt with D 3/7, 199th and never until today, took time to
consider the guys that sent out the beer, clean clothes, ammo ,water, processed our R&R orders and hundreds of other
things. I never thanked them and I should.

68 to sep 69. we were transferred there from Phu Bi camp eagle in jan 68 i think it was but i didnt arrive there till sep
68 i dont know what unit you were with but im sure at some point in that time i may have crossed your path. we were
located just across the street from a artillery unit and just above the transfer station where everyone came to to go
process to there prospective units there. and if you ever went on sick call you probably had to come to our unit. i was
not a medic as i said i was the unit clerk but helped out at times when i had nothing to do which was seldom lol we

I am another Viet-REMF. I was stationed at Korat RTAFB during the later stages of the Vietnam war 1972-1973. I
flew into UDORN on a C-130 early in my tour. I was a medic, and spent numerous hours supporting air operations.
We flew F-4 phantoms, A-7D aircraft (close air support), and numerous other aircraft. Our base lost several aircrew
during the time I spent there as a direct result of hostile action over Vietnam. I have fond memories of the Thai people,
whom I came to love while was there. To all the medics and others who served during that time. SaWaDee

Hand Salute to Bob Wheatley (Viet-REMF Extraordinaire!!). Bob, my congratulations on such a MAGNIFICENT
page. I am too a Viet-REMF. Recently I became aware of the TLC Brotherhood page and I am proud to say that I
joined the TLCB. I was in Thailand, assigned to the 519th Transportation Bn at Camp Friendship, Korat. From Dec 6,
1967 to Nov 27, 1968. I was heavily involved in delivering to the Air Force all kinds of supplies. From food and
toilet paper to bombs and ammunition. Everything except JP-4. As a 2LT, Platoon Leader I had to conduct convoys
delivering parts of the electronic devices used for the detection of enemy movement, both in Viet Nam and in the Ho
Chi Minh Trail. IN the McNamara Wall or Igloo White or Niagara Opn, was my hand. Recently, and thanks to the
TLCB, I became aware of how significant my little contribution was. I read that had it not been for the electronic
detection efforts at Khe Sanh, the death list at the wall would have been twice as big. Very modestly but very proudly,
I felt BIG when I read that. As a Viet-REMF I always felt that I did not do enough. Now I know that, maybe, my
efforts saved somebodies life. I do not feel "less" any longer. Hand Salut to all TLCB's Viet-remf.

Excellent site! I was stationed in Korat, Camp Friendship, US Army. So many of the things you say about being in
Thailand and a REMF not actually in the Nam I have felt also. It is good to hear other's experiences and the
similarities to mine.

Bob, you have done an outstanding job. I came across your website through the Thailand, Laos, Cambodia
Brotherhood, when I joined. I have visited often and will return. One of your latest works "MORTAL ENEMY" is a
masterpiece. To me, it must bare the soul of every combat veteran, in every war. Keep up the great work. It's been a
pleasure meeting you through the Brotherhood.

I was at the 7th from June 67 - June 68. A ditty bopper I was. My best buddy saw my email address on Bogarts web
page and contacted me, it had been 30 years since we lost touch with each other. I can say I lived in the tents and
worked in the vans and got moved into the new barracks and com center in that years time.I can remember Capt. Mann
giving us a lot of inspections and one guy on our trick was copying one night and typed on his copies ( HR
BLOCKED BY QRM - MANN MADE INTERFERENCE) our inspections halted to almost a stop !!! I can say that I
enjoyed my time at the 7th more than any duty I had. If anyone remembers me just email me, My best buddy was James
Gilmore and James W. Johnson This is a great site, keep up the good work.

Was at the 5th/83 from Nov/64 until o/a Jun/66 as SSG Trick Chief on mostly Swings and seen a lot of you 05H's.
come through on the way north to Udorn. Cannot remember many of you but it was very fullfilling reading this
website and all the different comments and pics that I have been spending the last four hours trying to go over.
Excellent site and the only reason I gave it a nine instead of a ten, is because of the ten that I believe the the
14thUSASAFS in Hakata, Janan rates as the best site that I have come across. I was stationed there before Siri Court.
Anybody remember SSG Brown,SSG Pratt(mids), SSg Jackson (mostly mids) or SFC Leonard, or SSG Mack on days,
and would like to contact me, can reach me at brankfrown@aol.com. We can rehash stories about the 99 club on
Silom road off Pat Pong in downtown B-town. Take care. CUL. Frank.

Found this site through an e-mail I received from the TLC Brotherhood. I will be back often because it is too much to
take in in just one visit. I too was a REMF based at NKP in Thialand from 7/70 to 7/71. It was my job to keep the
computers at Task Force Alpha running. Today I am a network technician still trying to keep the computers running.

How could you know what waas in my head when I came home (Australia) from Ubon in 1967? We met the same
things here, hated by all, and misunderstood, but you have at least introduced me to one Aussie for whom it was all
worth it - Patchera was worth the effort. Hope you can make links with the Australian Ubon Re-Union group who
have experienced the Australian version of this story. Congratulations

I have never made a distinction between one veteran and another. Fate allocated our duty and honour demanded we
carry out that duty. Having said that, I am proud to have read (parts of) your memoirs and come to understand more
clearly and to honour more strongly, the role of REMF personnel in the fact that I am able to make this entry into your

Hi from 'Down Under' as ex RAAF at UBON 1968 your site is one of the best I have seen. We "Aussies" from Ubon
are still to even be classed as REMF! We have been fighting Government "hog-wash" to get correct recognition! We
are proud to be REMF in the Vietnam War effort! See Yah Mate!

best). God bless JJ McFadden a real field Cdr. Never had an assignment to match. Cant believe all American sighting
FLASH sent to DC without responses and follow up? Make ya wonder..What a team we had working 14-15 to 20
days on 1 off for months for mission sake and everyone stayed a team. Nobody ran radio bands faster or better! Never

I was in-country from 1969 to 1970, HHC 39th Signal Bn. 1st Signal Brigade. Stationed first at Vung Tau (yeah I
know, Vung Tau Warrior), then moved our ELM Shop to Long Binh. MOS 31L20 Radio Relay and Carrier
Repairman SP/5. Made many side trips to Dong Tam (after the 9th Infantry left - scary place, protected? by ARVNs),
Go Cong and Nah Be to repair radio gear. Out motto "Keep the shooters talkin'". I have many pictures that I have
scanned in jpeg format, just let me know if you want them!

Love this site! I really don't like the REMF part <grin>, cause in Nam there were no "front lines". Rockets and mortars
oh my!

Regards and Welcome Home!

After watching the Today Show, my sister-in-law called and she goes to alot of estate sales, garage sales, antique
shops and people call her to "take this stuff". Approximately 4 years ago someone gave Pat & Leon Roberts of Slaton,
Texas a box of stuff. Pat said at the time "who would get rid of a purple heart and bronze star?" These people are
looking for next of kin of this vet. He died of wounds received during ground combat in Vietnam April 26th, 1966.
You may contact me or Leon Roberts, e-mail PROBERTSL@CS.COM.

Just a word of appreciation to all those men and women who served in the rear support areas everywhere. Thanks for all the hot meals
and C-Rations, water for showers and drinking, ammunition supplies and resupplies, clean clothes, and Sundry Packs, sodas and beer.
Thanks for getting us there and getting us back. Thanks to all those people who kept them flying and driving. Without all of you, our
missions would not have and could not have been accomplished. You folks seem to be the forgotten of the forgotten. May God Bless
You All.

Thank you for saying what you said. I attended a Vietnam Veterans convention in Anaheim this year and had a lot of respect for those
guys. I wasn't in-country but my "THUD" F105-F Thunderchief flew out of Thailand and was shot down over Hanoi. I didn't feel, as
you say, in-country in ground battles, but felt as part of the war. I now have something to say. It is with pride to have been
in-the-rear-with-gear. Thanks for making me feel better. I am searching for a pilot that I flew with in the "THUD" I crewed. I read an
article that he wrote in an F105 book that also came out in an Airman Magazine article. I was happily surprised that he made it through
as a "Wild Weasel" pilot. His name is Captain Donald Carson. Would like to get a hold of him. I have a certificate from him when we
went past the speed of sound in my THUD. Thanks again for the encouraging words. Sgt. Alfredo Lugo F105F Crewchief

I served three tours in the 'Nam as a combat Vet, I also have nothing but respect and pride towards my brother soldiers who took care
of me from the rear support bases. It took 8 good soldiers to supply 1 combat soldier. Thats how we received our fuel, food, clothing ,
ammo, air support, mail and everything else it took to keep us alive and well enough for us to do our job. If anything, I was a little
jealous at times of you guys in the rear! But I never did then, nor will I ever now, look down at the fine soldiers that supported me.
The everyday boredom that you put up with was just as bad a the fire fights that I went thru. Thank you for being there and helping
me to return home safely. Welcome home my brothers, CW2 Jack Stoddard. PS If you want to read a good book, go to
u2.lvcm.com/jscb and check out my book, "What Are They Going To Do, Send Me To Vietnam? "

After the war I was ignored for not being "in-country". Years later the Alabama Vietnam Veterans of America state council voted me
veteran of the year for my fund-raising work for the Vietnam Women's Memorial. I was promptly told by an in-country type that my
award should say "era". In some people's minds, you can't be a vet unless you brought back some ears. And then, if you don't get
enough ears, you still aren't a vet.

What a great looking site! In Mar 69 My friend and I bicycled from Udorn RTAFB down to Khumpahwapi. We stopped at Ramasun for
some cokes and were suprised to see how well army personel lived! I revisted Udorn several years ago and on the way up I looked for
Ramasun. Only flat cement slabs wehere the barrakes used to be were visible.

Great site! The last part of my tour was also as a REMF and having seen both sides of the street, will never lose my appreciation for the
REMFs supporting combat troops. I will also never forget how I would have done literally anything to keep my REMF status rather than
being sent back into the bush. I think it is important to remind everybody that the vast majority of people in Southeast Asia were
REMFs, not combat troops, and that the REMFs were the ones who made everything possible and made it possible for the combat
troops to keep functioning.

I was with the 483rd GEEIA Squadron based a Korat RTAFB from Jan67 to Jan68 when I went to the 620th TCS Det.1 at Dong Ha,
RVN and also at Monkey Mountain outside of DaNang. While in Thailand I went TDY installing Comsec equipment at Tahkli, Udorn,
Ubon and NKP. I wouldn't trade that year(1967) for anything. The contrast of my two tours in SEA were like day and night. Peace,

The Viet-REMF is truly a wonderful site to honor all Vietnam veterans. I served as a Crew Cheif on a UH-1H Helicopter with C Troop
2/17 Cav in the Northern I corp. during 69-70, and I seen more than my share of combat. I would have never traded places with any
grunt on the ground but when we got shot at flying we had no place to hide. We must remember today that how ever we served we
were all Brother and Sisters in Arms. At any time during our tour of duty we could have been killed. Maybe not in a fire fight but from
incoming rocket or morter fire. Let us never forget each other, God knows the rest of this country has prayed for years that we would
just go away so they could forget US! Again Great Job, Keep up the good work.

Udorn '70-'72, total two yrs. 05H, Morse Intercept. Taught English at Wittiarai Kroo Udorn. Very good site with an uncommon
sensitivity to all involved in that war. I noticed Patchara posted 03/28/00 and assume her story went up only recently also. Excellent first
half. Through my Thai friends and tendency to run 'lonewolf' I became fluent in Thai and bore witness to some pretty intense stories as
told to me by the Thai people to include slavery, murder, kidnap and other forms of betrayal. Personal experience includes being mugged
with knife at throat and witnessed assassination of Chinese moneylender outside of the police station in Udorn, no less. As Patchara's
story reveals, Asian society can be very insular, racist and exceptionally cruel. The Chinese nickname for caucasians is 'white ghost'. My
stay was also leavened with many instances of friendship and humor. Will contact you about possibility of posting them. Dennis aka

I had an uncle who fought for his life in the Veitnam War, and to me any one who fought in that war are Gardian Angels who protected
my family. To them my hat is off. You see I'm 28 yrs. old, and know really nothing about this war. I wrote a senior term paper on the
cause and effects of the Veitnam War on the soldiers and families. Now, I've met a friend at work who fought in that war also. He told
me things that I could not believe. Things my uncle wouldn't even speak of. I was very shocked and very angry. I know how you feel
(sort of) and feel your anger. Because of this person I am now researching more and more, in hopes to write a book along the same
topic, but on the side of you guys. I enjoyed your site, and thank you for the information. I also want to THANK all the people who
fought in that war for saving my future. Now maybe I can help you in receiving the respect and gradittude and Thanks that ya'll deserve.
THANK YOU MY GAURDIAN ANGEL'S, for saving my life and the lives of my family members.

Hi, I was in vietnam 1965 to 1966. I served with the 173rd Airborne. The 173rd was not afraid to mix it up with any of those
communist bastards. We did our job and I must say we did it well. But with out the men and women of the REMF we would have been
stoped in our tracks. We do owe you a lot. And I want to thank all of you that did not have to face the VC EYE BALL TO EYE BALL.
We would not have won all of our battles had it not been for rear support. Once again THANK ALL OF YOU!!! I do love your site and
keep up the good work. AIRBORNE ALL THE WAY Roger

I enjoyed your site. I served in the USAF as a 292X1 from 1968 to 1972 - part of the time I was in the 6924th Scty Sq in Da Nang,
Vietnam and Thailand. I appreciated your essay and wish you God speed. I know how I feel and it is nice to know that others feel the

I was also a REMF although in 'Nam at Nha Trang AB and Camrahn (can't remember how to spell it!)Bay AB as a radar technician on
C-130's from the 38th TAS out of Langley AFB, Va. We ended up in Japan as part of an advance maintenance team after the USS
Pueblo was captured by the North Koreans. How the hell we ended up "in country" is still a mystery (from the 5 sided Squirrel Cage, I
guess). Spent a glorious 6 months TDY to 'Nam. Anyway, just wanted to congratulate you on an outstanding site. Thanks...

Excellent cover my friend. My name is Steve Woods. I happened upon your site while doing research into my Uncles service with Air
America. His name was Glen Woods. It was he that was the Air America "sharpshooter" whom downed the AH-2 Colt bombing LS-85
on January 12, 1968. My Uncle was KIA later in August 12, 1969. I have very recently found information stating that his helo was
downed by a bomb planted by Laotian mercenaries for his part in his protection of LS-85. My thanks for your kind remarks describing
my Uncles' "Surrealistic dogfight". For your information the weapon he used was a sub-machinegun, small enough to fit into his
briefcase because he was afraid of lossing his job had he been found carring a weapon. I am especially proud of his courage. Best
Regards - Steve

An excellent website, and one that grabbed me and flung me back in time to my year in Udorn. I joined the USAF in March, 1965. I
think it was about April of 1966 that I arrived in Bangkok, spent 3 nights at the Royal Hotel, and then boarded the flight to Udorn, once
used by the Japanese, it was said, in WW!!. I was in the 432 TRW as an Electronic Warfare Repairman, spent many many days and
nights on the flightline working on RF4Cs, RF101s, F-104s, and some other stuff. Would love to hear from any others that were there. I
used to go up to Nong Khai on the Mekong quite often, and I remember a samll base on the side of the the road near a checkpoint on
the way up, wonder if that was where you were stationed. This was one of the best years of my life, what memories! Thanks for
bringing them back again, and congratulations on your very good style of writing. ppearce1@bellsouth.net

I served with the 366th SPS, Danang AB, Vietnam, July 1966 - Sept. 1966 and the Security Police Detachment, Det.1, 620th TCS,
Dong Ha AB, Vietnam, Oct. 1966 - July 1967.

Dong Ha was part of what was known as "Leatherneck Square" which was four Marine bases near the DMZ in Quang Tri Province.
The bases were Dong Ha, Cam Lo, Con Thien and Gio Lin. Dong Ha AB had 2 Air Force radar sites, "Waterboy" and "Sky Spot"
which directed bombing missions. While at Dong Ha, I experienced a lot of incoming from NVA 122mm and 140mm rockets and
130mm and 152mm artillery dug into the DMZ. I witnessed 2 SAM missile launches from the DMZ by the NVA and one aircraft shot
down. There were B52 Arclight bombing missions near our base with many directed at the NVA buildup in the DMZ. The Security
Police Detachment provided perimeter security as well as gate entry posts. The perimeter bunker positions had M-60 machins guns,
M-79 grenade launchers, M-16's, Claymore mines, and a mine field in front of the bunker positions. I have lost contact with most of the
guys I served with there and my memory of that time is fading somewhat with the passing years.

service in floods, hurricanes, tornados, civil unrest or other disasters. We serve without pay unless called up for active duty. We buy our
own uniforms and pay our own way to drills and summer camp. We have a Saturday only drill once a quarter and a weekend only
summer camp. Vets will be given their last rank on their DD 214 and those that do well will be considered for promotion or commissions
each year. We have fun and meet interesting people with similar backgrounds and interests in the unit. Our training is designed to render
aid in emergencies. There are no physical requirements or written tests to enlist. Some of have disabilities but we can still offer valuable
help. Age accepted is from 17-62. If you are over 62, a waiver can be obtained. Cut and paste this web site and look us over:

While workig with the4 U.S. Consulate, Udorn Thailand, 1979-1981, I did volunteer work for the Pearl S. Buck Foundation which helps
the children of American fathers that were left behind in throughout Asia, and who are severely discriminated against in their countries of
birth due to their American heritage. In Thailand the children had no citizenship and no public education and health benefits thereof.
In 1981 I became the first JVA VN Amerasian caseworker working with a Consular officer at the Orderly Departure Program, American
Embassy, Bangkok. At present anyone who appears to be of mixed Western/Asian heritage can qualify withtheir families for U.S.
Resettlement with the support of various church groups.
Amerasian children in other countries have no such option. Patchara must have been adopted to obtain the documentation for her
international travel.
I urge anyone who is moved by the plight of these children to contact the Pearl S. Buck Foundation which has a website.

From 1979-1981, while working at the Consulate, Udorn, I did volunteer work for the Peal S. Buck Foundation which provides
sponsored caring for the fatherless children of Americans that had served in Asian countries.
Sponsors send donations that translate into medical care, personal hygiene items and clothing and rudimentary schooling for the kids
who, due to their non-citizen status, were precluded from attending the public schools. (Unlike most countries where citizenship derives
from the mother, in Thailand citizenship is derived from the father).
From 1981-1982, I worked with a Consular officer at the Orderly Departure Program, U.S. Embassy, Bangkok. We broadcast requests
over Voice of America for the VN mothers of Amerasians to mail us data that could identify the alleged fathers of their children. At the
beginning, we could resettle only those few children whose fathers filed affidavits of paternity on their behalf.
We were able to establish the U.S. paternity of only about 80 of about 10,000 claims. In many cases the mothers feared NVA reprisals
and upon the 1975 takeover, destroyed all documentary links to the U.S.father.
Contrary to the widespread belief that these children were born of prostitutes impregnated by short timing GI's out on a night on the
town, we learned from thousands of mothers' letters that the majority of Amerasians were born of longterm cohabitation relationships.
Abortion is legal and widely practiced in Asia and you just did not see many pregnant working gals out at the bars. Only the "kept"
women could afford the risk of babies.
The majority of Amerasian children were born of fathers assigned to rear echelon positions who could afford a hootch and a live-in
girfriend. We found that most children were born to the more senior ranking military, State Dept. and Contract worker Americans
stationed in and around Saigon; not to GI's fresh from the field out rip roaring around town.
Likewise, most children were not abandoned out-right. The saved letters from the fathers indicated that in many cases there were years
of communication and support from the father - hopes of return and resumption of the relationship - before the bamboo curtain fell in
1975 and the mothers had to fend for themselves.
The U.S. military did all in it's power to dissuade GI's from entering into marriages including procedures to obtain permission to marry
that entailed numerous anti-marriage lectures from every level of command.
In contrast, when the French military and colonial administrators departed, they had taken with them all of the Eurasian children that
they could. Still working under a misconception the U.S. Congress feared that hooker mothers would be immigrating to the U.S., and
refused to give the children blanket refugee status to resettle to the U.S.
Finally, in 1983 as the true nature of the relationships that produced the Amerasians came to light, Congress approved refugee status for
all children who appeared to be Amerasian. However it was way too late for many who had been born over ten years prior and had
suffered terrible abuse. For example, in not just a few cases, arrangements had to be made for the anal reconstruction of the teenage
kids.
The VN Amerasians are being resettled but the Thai Amerasians and their mothers may still need a lot of help.
VFW Post 10249, (AFTN Memorial post, Udorn, Thailand), does all kinds of charity work in NE Thailand where the majority of
airbases were situated and where most of the Thai Amerasians are located.
The VFW could connect with the Pearl S. Buck Foundation to see if anything more can be done. Anyone interested in seeing what can
be done?http://www.khonkaen.com/vfw/
In addition to Thailand, the Pearl S. Buck Foundation has projects for children in Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, Korea, China and
Taiwan. For more info click http://www.pearl-s-buck.org/psbi/

Your page is quite good, thank you. I am the sole son a father that served in Vietnam for one year only to return home and be murdered

His name, Milton Perry II, I believed he served in Bien Hoa, maybe in the 6251 SPS.?Admittedly, I am very naive about the military
and this was not discussed as I grew up. Anyone that could help me find info about my father or actually served with him would be

68-71 and 72-74. All were in support of the Viet Nam War. I did get an opportunity to lay some sensors on trails in Laos, and Cambodia
but for the most part I was one of the fortunate peeps who just did his assigned job and prayed for peace each and every day. And I still
return to Thailand almost every year. Married a wonderful Thai lady in 1995 and we moved to San Antonio TX in 1996 and on to
Yuma AZ in 1997. Will probably retire in Thailand sometime within the next 30 months.

"Motel" operations as well as keeping our MARS (AI8AM) on the air. It was great seeing other "Wooly Boogers" from the "Mountain of
Vigilance" sign your registry. After more than 30 years I still remember the faces but sadly the names are long gone.

I'm an F-16 crewchief with the 23 FS, stationed in Spangdahlem AB Germany. Allthough i can never fully understand what it must of
felt like during Vietnam, this web site has given me a better understanding of what it would of been like for me. Afterall I could be
considered a modern day REMF. Thank you for the insight.

I just finished reading all that you wrote and I have to admit, I agree totally with what you have said about the REMF's. I was one. I had
a USAF AFSC OF 70270, Administration, and worked in an office breating on that typewriter you spoke about. The one thing that I feel
others should know is, even though I was stationed at Kadena AB Okinawa with the 1st SOS 72-75, if there would have been a need for
me to pick up a rifle and walked through those rice patties with my brothers I would have been there. God Bless you for your insight.

had the pleasure of working with him (in Psych, if you can call THAT a pleasure...at times)and he was a reliable co-worker. You need

MACVSOG RVN 68-69; TFA NKP 70-71. Glad to find this site. Went to several Viet-vet reunions; thought that I, and the fellows I
worked with in SEA were the only support people over there. Maybe we need a REMF(as in Military Forces) Vietnam Veterans
Association (REMF-VVA).

I like your site and your message. As a two-time infantry company commander in Vietnam in 1969 and 1970, I rate my time in the rear
as S4 as my hardest duty to adapt to. In the field I had a focus for every nanosecond and could act like a professional; as a REMF, I had
a duty to provide a cornicopia of support to those idiots in the field who never seemed to plan ahead and were always running out of
things they needed urgently. I was never so glad as when I hung up my S4 shingle to return to the field (although I regret the
circumstances that prompted it). God bless.

Hi Bob,

I got there when I was 17. I was stationed at Camp Samaesan, Sattahip. I was with the 313th and 260th Transportation units. I never
resolved the "kind of being a Viet Nam vet and yet not really" That is because I was never stationed in Nam. I think my tour in Korea
directly after was worse simply because there was no morale, evryone seemed to take drugs and no one seemed to care. But Thailand. I
will never forget a Thai family calling me over to their hooch to share their meagre supper with me. I was busy trying to prove myself a
man in Thailand, like the time I guzzled a full fifth of Mekong Whiskey and woke a day or two later. I remember a time I woke up
under water in a rice paddy because my friend rode the motorcycle off the road..hours later I discovered I need 13 stitches in the side of
my head where you could see the bone. Actually a lot of it I do not remember, too often the MP's had to take me back to my unit. I
remember waking up at 2AM, someone left the radio on, "This is an actual attack, this is an actual attack. 5 guys threw a grenade at a
B-52, probably scratched the paint. I remember the Dew Drop Inn in Kilosip. I remember that you could live like a king for 30.00 a
month. I remember how wonderful the housegirl was able to shine those combat boots. I remember the second degree burns all over my
back and legs from having rowed out to a reef and having to break starch the next morning while the blisters popped. I did that so I
would not get a article 15 for hurting government property. I remember how painful it was to relieve myself in those first few weeks in
country. I remember the wonderful Cow Pot. I remember those long dark nights going through the Korat hills with a jeep trailer full of
ammo to turn in at the depot. I remember the insane boredom. I remember getting my R&R and not knowing what to do because I was
already there if you know what I mean. I remember being selected to inspect the battalion arms rooms for the IG because they believed
me not to have indulged in the local dried, rolled up vegetation. I remember feeling very proud of my unit and having served with some
outstanding officers and men!!!!! I remember the Bob Hope show. I remember that country being so beautiful and the people so
friendly. It broke my heart the other day I read a young Thai woman's message somewhere on a guest book listing dealing with
Thailand. She said she was the result of some G.I.'s one night stand with her mother. She said she lives with a family who have loved
her and raised her well in the States. She said that if her father was out here somewhere not to worry that she had a good life. There is
so many of us that could have been her father. Maybe that is the hardest part?

Let it be said "Better to ride than walk". I am from FLC Redbeach, located outside Danang-located from across the Seebeas base.
Many a day traveling the highways of dust, dirt, monsoon and heated conditions, meeting up with tanks to clear the way for delivering
ammo, boots, food and fuel to the bases scattered along the Viet Nam landscape. I drove a refueler, voluntarilly,during muy thirteen
months.
Remember where there is life taken, it resounds what is perfectly clear, "We are all in this togeother". This statement is dedicated to the
memory of Bobby Baker killed around Oct 69, from a land mine, igniting the tanker of fuel that he was driving. Fuel went out of the
front of the tanker and into the cab of the truck, igniting into flames and killing both Bobby and the "shot gunner".
Bobby was driving my rig that day
In upmost respect to all Vetarans,

Great Job, very interesting site. Nice to see that there are people out there like me, still remembering the great times at Monkey
Mountain Vietnam. I was there at the 620 Tac Control Squadron from Sept 65 to Aug 66 working in Radio Maintenance. Anyone
remember me, give me a note.

68/69 LZ LIZ. A grunt who trained on tanks at Ft HOOD tx after training for infintry at "TIGER LAND" Ended up being levied out of ft
hood to go to Nam as infintry. When they asked for my MOS I put down Tanker, and ended up OJT artillary supporting the DUC PHO
area grunts who took a beating. We became #1 on the hit parade when the dinks realized that the artillary had to go first.

I note that your scale of 1-10 is the reverse of what it was in Thailand. I have fond memories of my tour to Korat RTAFB from 68-69
as a member of the 483rd GEEIA Sq. I saw most of the bases in Thailand during my tour and had a great time. I returned on a TDY to
UBON in Oct-Nov of 1969. This time I returned with a 13 month old daughter to the US. I can tell you that fathers who wanted to
return with their children had no real help from our government. I am sad about so many children left behind.I know however, that most
men were not able to know about their children. Others found many roadblocks to marriage etc. I beat the odds and life has been good
for me and my child.

I was with the 366th SPS at DaNang 7/69-1/70 and the 3rd SPS at Bien Hoa 1/70-12/70. I was a REMF on the perimiter every
night...sniped at...rocketed...mortared etc. It is unfortunate that our field brothers do tend to look down on us as having it easy. I guess
we did compared to what they went through. However, every field grunt I knew sure was happy to see the Zoomies when some close
air support was needed. All I know is that it was a combined effort of 10's of thousands of REMF's to keep those fighters in the air 24/7
to provide support to guys in the bush. Was I a hero...no. I was just doing my job, watching my 50+ yards of wire a night, waiting to go
back to the world.
