I was researching my dads Vietnam paperwork. I was following a lead, I ended up here. Like many of your sons & daughters. We (daughters) tip toe around this war subject because we know it hurts. So, we do not ask. But, we can see the pain clearly... We just want to understand. Then one day we can not ask. You are gone. So, I seek. Knowing that I will never truly understand... I wish I had asked more, listened harder, never left youâ€™re side. You will always be my hero. Donald Leroy Welch...191st MI Sept.69-70. Fort Ord., Fort Holabird, Fort Huchutcha. I miss youâ€™re voice, your humor, strength. Never a complaint, always had time for me. Always stood by me. â€œDaddyâ€. R.I.P I think you are all heroâ€™s. No matter the details. I have nothing but LOVE & respect for everyone of you. Welcome home...I am so sorry It has taken so long to write that. I am so sad for all of us.

Dear Editors and Veterans, Thank you so much for creating this site. I am part of a speech and debate group located in AZ called Mars Hill Speech and Debate. I am writing an OO (original oratory) on the Vietnam War. This site helped me so much, and as I keep researching, I find this common theme: we should treat the veterans better from the Vietnam War. I agree. Those veterans gave all they could, and I want to say thank you, from a 13 year old teenager. Elijah
"TO THOSE WHO HAVE FOUGHT FOR IT, LIFE HAS A FLAVOR THAT THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW!" I came upon your name while surfing the net and felt that the above statement would have special meaning for you. Regardless of where one served in Vietnam, our duty was hazardous and critical to our overall mission. Courage defines all Vietnam Vets who put their lives on the line during the war. I served with 3/22nd, 25th Infantry Division out of Tay Ninh as an infantryman. Fought the NVA on the slopes of Nui Ba Den twice with numerous firefights in and around the area bordering the Cambodian border. The cover photo on my site looks out the front window of a Huey onto the Black Virgin Mountain. Remember your Christmas in Vietnam? Mine was spent on an ambush patrol near the Cambodian border. After 5 months in the field, I was pulled to the 93rd Evac at Long Binh to work with soldiers suffering from combat fatigue. Over the last 10 years, I chronicled my tour of duty and the response has been overwhelming. There are presently over One Hundred 5 Star Reviews worldwide I believe that you will relate to this true story of the fight for Nui Ba Den and the struggles and sacrifices that the soldiers who served their country in Vietnam endured. Thousands of Vietnam Veterans have proudly endorsed these memoirs. Please check out the website at courageonthemountain.com with the accompanying introduction. It will make you proud for your service and all the men and women who served our country during the Vietnam war. I proud that you made it home brother! Thank you for your service and M

Hi my name is Ken Delaney. When I first came in country I was sent to company B 4th Engr Bn 4th Infantry Division in the central highlands. There were no opening s in that company for my MOS 62 E 20 dozer operator so I was put in one of the line platoons. Most of the two and a half months in that company were spent on a hill top fire support base (FSB). We were responsible for clearing shrubs, bushes and trees all around the sides of the the hill top. At least half of that time was during the monsoons . The leaches drove me crazy. When the 4th inf div folded I was sent to the 23rd inf div (Americal) in Chu Lie and from there to the 26th Engr com C in Duc Pho in support of the 11th light inf brigade. While there at one point we were shipped by LST to Quang Tri Province near the DMZ . We were there to fill in the void left when our brothers were sent West towards Laos in support of the South Vietnamese Army incursion into Laos. One mission I was sent on was with a D-7 dozer to a FSB right next to the DMZ . We were receiving rocket and mortar attacks daily . One day with my dozer I went into the DMZ . We were accompanied by two M-48 tanks and four to six APC’s . I believe we were searching for the areas were the enemy were setting up to fire mortars and rockets . We did not find any of the enemy or their weapons but they must have left in a big hurry because we found some papers with Vietnamese writing and a few personal items. At one point one of the tanks got wedged in a ravine and I had to set up my dozer to pull him out with my winch . Then the LT asked me to build a dirt berm across the ravine so our tanks and armored personal carriers could cross. If anyone reading this story recognizes it and can fill me in on more details I would greatly appreciate it. Very Truly Yours Kenneth R. Delaney Jr. PS Just in case you have not heard It yet “ Welcome Home Brothers Also thank you to whoever set up this site
