BOYCOTT THE BOOK! Wednesday, 8/22/01,

9:32 AM PLEASE don't buy "Taking Fire" by liar extraordinaire Ron "Squatty Body" Alexander. Read it for free (and bend up the copy) at Barnes & Noble, since they refuse to print the Troop rebuttal to his pack of lies of their website. If the action sounds unbelievable, it's because it is. The book is 99% horse-pucky, as is Ron. Name of Unit and dates in RVN: Apache 35 / Apache 22, Feb 69 - Sep 70

Does anyone with C 1/9 recall a helicopter crash, September 28, 1968, Quang Tri Province - one report states 1 1/2 miles east of LZ Barbara? If so, we would like to hear from you. The Duty Officer's Log Sheet mentions C 1/9 working out in the area of the crash - along with 25 "ele" and mention of finding foot prints, along with notation of "Ind. evaded E". We have recently discovered many inconsistencies within our Vietnam casualty's military records and crash fact records - and are not getting any help from the Army in clarification. Thanks.

Patrick Pascual Monday, 7/23/01, 11:09 AM

After reading the "Rembrance" and "Morning Report" of this website, I

noticed one glaring omission. My Father, SFC Florendo Pascual was

omitted from both sections. SFC Pascual was the platoon sergeant of the

"Blues" from approximately the Summer of 1964 (under the 3-17 Cav) until

he was killed in action during the Ia Drang Valley ambush on 3 November

1965. His role in the 3 November 1965 Ia Drang Ambush is mentioned in a

paragraph of the book "Anatomy of a Division."

Hey guys, I was with C Troop.... 3rd of the 127th. Enjoyed your site, not

finished with it. Had a lot of friends in 1/9, including a couple bosses. For the

past 3 years I haver been in Nam with a bunch of vets, very healing, very

interesting. Going back next May 15. I will have a site with details, be on the

look out. An OCS buddy and flight school mate, Bo Bludworth (1/9) has

disappeared from the face of the Earth, anyone knows his whereabouts? Will

get back here, my best to all. Fernando De Pierris, LTC (ret) Banshee 46

Hi everybody! At first I have to mention that I haven´t served in Nam but

I´m very interested in Viet Nam war, I admire those gentle heroes who

served there in that damn war! Many damn GOOD MEN died there but

why? For those bloody politicians in Washington? Oh God.. Especially I´m

very interested in the 1st Squadron, 9th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry

Division (Airmobile), Vietnam, 1965-71 because I guess it was the best unit

which was in Nam! You did very good work there! Really! I admire you!!!

PS:Anyway, how you can see on the name of my e-mail address, I´m

interested in LRRP(especially in Team Camel, Co. E/51st Inf., 23rd

Americal can see our team photo on We don´t celebrate the Viet

Nam war, nothing like this, but we want to celebrate,remember and mention

those heroes who served there, who fought there and who died there..GOD
