Looking for Bill, a pilot whom I went to votec school with prior to Vietnam. He was from Alaska. His family had a saw mill or lumber dealership. Wanted to get out and do tours of Alaska via helicopter. Would like to get in touch. Last time we met was on a road outside of Rach Kien where we were holding up before take off.

    I was assigned to Fire Base Danger for the first 3 months of my tour, and then reassigned to Delta Company, 5th BN, 60th Infantry. I hung around with VanBlairicam, Ridgeway, Rawling, “Doc” Holliday. I was an M-60 gunner, but during the last few weeks of my tour, I was a jeep driver for 1st Sgt. Anderson and cleared the mines in the morning from base camp to Tan An and went out at night on recon patrol. If there’s anyone out there who would like to get in touch with me, I would like to hear from you. I can’t remember all the names of everyone, but maybe some of you will remember me — the guy with the French accent and known as “Frenchy.” Hope you are all doing well, and that life got better for you. As for me, I married my sweetheart from those VietNam days in May 1971, and we have three grown sons – Ron (former Army MP), Tim & Matt.

    I was first assigned to the Mobile Riverine Unit in Delta Company on the ships and after the 9th Infantry Division, came home.  I was reassigned to the 5th Bn 60th Infantry in Delta Company.  My rank when I left Vietnam was E5/11B/US.
    I look forward to hearing from all of you, I have alot of pictures but not very many names to put with the faces.  I guess my memory is failing me because at one time I could give each person in the pictures a name.  Sorry I will miss you at the meeting in Denver, Colorado.  But, I promise to be at the next one.  I might get a chance to send the pictures to the president of the Association so he can show them to you and maybe you will be able to recognize the young men.  Well, I am looking forward to hearing from you,

    Served with the Delta Company 2nd Platoon during 1970.  Did the rice paddies, Nui Ba Din (the Black Virgin Mountain), Eagle flights, the Air Cushioned Vehicles (ACVs) in the Plain of Reeds, river boat patrol on the Mekong River,and of course the biggie, the Cambodia invasion.  Was a Squad Leader and  Platoon Sergeant during my stay.  Was wounded when a helicopter landed to pick up our wounded, which set off a booby-trapped explosive that got me and some others.  When the 9th Infantry left Binh Phouc, I was transferred to the 101st Airborne Division up north of Danang and fought in the tripple canopy jungle there.  I have fond memories of the guys I served with in my Platoon.  I never, and I mean never, sent any of my men on any type of patrol without going with them.  It was my job to take them out and to bring them back.  I loved that job and that responsibility.

    I was on the deluxe tour plan and and managed to visit all top tourist attractions such as Ben Luc, Plain of Reeds, Can Giouc, etc.  We always brought along an 81 mm mortar to keep people awake at night.  On night ambushes we brought along a 60 mm mortar until someone put a round through it in the middle of a firefight.  Was it them or us?  Feel free to call or e mail.

    I was assigned to our battalion, then stationed in Binh Phuoc, District of Long An Province, circa April 1968 as the Commander of D/5-60 and relinquished command at Lai Khe of D/1-16 Inf, 1st Inf Division in September 1968. “D” Company consisted of the Maintenance Platoon, Medical Platoon and the Mess Platoon, so our mission was combat service support to the battalion… the Transportation Platoon remained in HQ Company. My day-to-day work was mostly to manage the construction of the Battalion HQ and Tactical Operations Center building on the compound which we constructed with troop labor and local lumber “purchased” mostly with C Rations from a local saw mill near Binh Phuoc off QL4. I road marched with the Battalion to Lai Khe in the fall of 68, as part of the swap with the 1/16th Infantry per agreement between MG Wear, then the 1st Div GC and MG Julian J Ewell, the 9th Div CG. I left Lai khe for Ft Bliss, TX in September 1968, thinking I’d never see that place again. But in Sep 1971, there I was corkscrewing right back into the same helo pad at Lai Khe–three years later, this time with MAC-V and assigned to Advisory Team 70 as the G1/G4 Advisor to the 5th ARVN Division. I just returned from a Reunion of fellow vets of the Battle of An Loc who gathered this year in Washington, DC on Sep 21 with several USAF FACs–another story. My fondest memory is of CPT Hector Villarreal cooking us Mexican Food in the Battalion Mess Hall on Sunday evenings whenever time, circumstances, and shipments of chili from home would allowed.

    I came to the 5/60th after spending 6 months with the 3/47th down in Tiger’s Lair.  I was only with the 5/60 a short time before I was sent to Hawaii. I was in a couple of firefights, but the one that stands out most vividly is 10 july ’69 when SSgt Oscar White was killed and Quinonis was MIA overnight. A group of us went out looking for him.  I’d like to locate Quinonis or other members of the search party that went out looking for him that night.

    I am trying to update my records for a medal display for the grandchildren. I have the record that shows the other men in the 5/60 that received the purple heart the same date as I did. On Aug. 6th 1970 I was wounded in the 1st. explosion and again when the medevac arrived another explosion occurred and I was wounded again. I qualify for a second purple award but need witnesses that can remember that. If you where there and know about this happening I could sure use your help. The others that received purple heart awards are Terrence W. Kelly, Edward J. Bialobak, Gary E. Moles, Keith Furlough. I was wounded and shipped to the states via Camp Zama in Japan. Thank you in advance. Gerald R Wright
