I was stationed in Phu Loi, previously a French military air strip. It was a metal decking surface for fixed wing and choppers. I was a buck sgt. in the s-3 operations section of the 23rd artillery group headquarters battery. We did all the sitreps daily. We requisitioned funds to build a chapel, but built a handball court. We put a cross on the front. We had one of the few px's where you could buy hand balls. We had a pizza oven at our base also. It was a little like M.A.S.H. I was stationed there most of 1970.

My brother 1st Lt. James Wenzel Grams was a member of the 2nd Battalion, 15th Field Artillery Battalion and was killed near Hoengsong (probably the massacre)on Feb. 13, 1951. I was wondering if anyone alive today served with Jim.
I was only 9 years old at the time (Jim was 23)and I only have one memory of him when he came home on leave prior to his Korean service.

Any information would be helpful.

Thank you all for your service.

I am looking for anyone who might have known my dad or who has documents or photos of the action at Elsenborn Ridge during the Battle of the Bulge. My dad, James R. Fuller was a cannoneer with A-Btry, 15th FA 2nd ID during that action. I realize that there may not be many of the vets still alive, but I am hoping that someone (son, daughter or maybe a surviving spouse) may still have some of these documents in their attics somewhere. If by chance you come across anything, Please e-mail me at alfuller0558@hotmail.com or call me at 580-215-2046. Any help, any help what so ever in obtaining information about my dad will be greatly appreciated.
May God Bless all who served.

Tonight I found you online and feel connected again with all those I loved during the years we stayed loyal and loving for the men we loved in the Vietnam war - years have taken so many of them - my story is of one helicoptor man- I dreamed I saw him falling - he was laughing and then he hit the ground in 2 pieces!!! In a month I spoke with his mom - that is how he had died and that night he was with me in his spirt I guess - 10,000 miles away - me in San Mateo, CA and him??? parachuting into Vietnam. His name was Wayne Yoyie and now you know him too - he laughed and made people happy every day of his life. I think of him and try to live an entire day in his honor once in awhile to give the memory of him and keep it alive - he died so young - so many of my friends died young. My husband made it back but not back from post trauma.

I was with the 1st Battalion (Mechanized)50th Infantry 1st Air Cav stationed at LZ Uplift from Oct. 67 until June 68. Your Artillery unit was across the street from our motor pool and we would sit out by our hooch in the evenings and watch the artillery rounds being fired. That was when we were not in the field or on bunker guard. I never knew what Artillery unit it was until I started looking at the history of LZ Uplift.

I was motor Sgt in HQ Btry of 6/15th. I think I was 4th person to sign into 6/15 BN at Ft Sill in 1966. Went to Nam on the cargo ship as escort for the equipment and left Nam in April 1968. Currently retired and live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Would enjoy hearing from any other folks that were part of 6/15 during the above time period.

For decades now, concerned Veterans and Civilians have been questioning the testing of Agent Orange at Fort Chaffee, Arkansas, in 1966 and 1967, as well as storage of this deadly chemical through the 1970's.

Another secret the government tried to keep away from its duty-bound and life-giving Veterans!!!!!

I have official reports that not only prove the testing of Agent Orange at Fort Chaffee, but also the site locations, coordinates, and dioxin levels still present today at Fort Chaffee. If you have, or know anyone who has, photographs of Fort Chaffee, please contact me as soon as possible.

Dioxin was the most dangerous chemical created by our government and used on its own people, as well as in Vietnam, Gage Town Canada, and other countries. Gage Town, Canada has sued the United States twice now and won the first law suit. The second law suit is pending currently as it is initiated by the sick children of those exposed to the Agent Orange testing back in 1966 and 1967. Every country where Agent Orange has been tested has sued us and won, with the exception of Vietnam, who has a third lawsuit pending currently.

Many who have served or spent time at Fort Chaffee, Arkansas have developed diabetes, cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, heart disease, and/or died.

Did you also know that the City of Charleston, Arkansas, has 100 times the national average for Type II Diabetes and cancer?! Did you know that the City of Charleston drew its water from Engineer's Lake, Fort Chaffee, which was near one of the test sites?

Did you know the former mayor of Central City, Arkansas is one of those
exposed to Agent Orange? Hear his story here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZZeclt3sZo

If you have worked at Fort Chaffee, Arkansas, served there, or spent time there through the 1970's, and have any of the above mentioned illnesses, or you know someone who may have been exposed to Agent Orange at Fort Chaffee, Arkansas, please contact me immediately at
agentorange@k5dxm.com!!

I served in the infantry in Vietnam (196th L.I.B.) and returned home only to suffer from PTSD even until now. I was able to talk myself out of ending my dreams of hell many times. Seeing news reports of so many new vets returning home, only to end their lives, finally drove me to write a book (My Life, My Hell This Grunt’s Journey Back to the World). I wrote it as an outreach to my fellow Vietnam Veterans and our new returning veterans in order to help them heal from PTSD, for their families and friends to understand why we suffer. I also charge America to give Korean and Vietnam Veterans the long overdue respect and honor deserved for their service. The book can be located on the net by searching my complete name.

I was reading through the 1st 15th Artillery history and left out was my battalion in Camp Stanley, Korea. I served from 30Aug71 to 1Oct72. B Battery, 1st 15th FA. Many fond memories. We went up across Freedom Bridge and occupied fire base, 4 poppa 1 in the DMZ every other month. Seems so long ago. I am proud of all those that served in Nam and Korea. The way we were treated when we returned home was not fair! Anybody that remembers Camp Pelham the week that we occupied it for the 7th and 17th FA email me. Turkey Farm, Songeri, Yongico, the Chinese Tunnel, Camp Page. Apparently Camp Casey is their home now. Casey had a replacement company that processed new troops when I was their. Take care all! Proud of all of you! Second to None!

I was in C btry 6th/15th arty,the summer of '68.All those years of hard livin and hard drinkin and you wake up one day and you still can't forget.Yes I remember you all. I might not remember your name,but I remember your face.It was'nt all hate-n death-n-war ,there were some great memories of friends' card games (I lost),and even fun under fire.Micheal,do you remember after we moved to Tan Son Nut? we were hiding out in our hootch one night durring a fire fight,stoned out lauaghing histericaly bullets flying. It seems that we recorded that on tape.I would love to hear that today.Of course it was not all fun and games.There were some horribly tragic events that still haunt me to this day.Please, if any of you know what happened to Don Brown from C btry I would like to know. I was the one who held the six straws in my hand that led to him going to Khe Sahn.He was wounded so badly when a mortar landed between his legs,they said he wouldn't make it.I guess when we left for Ton Son Nut we all took it for granted that he didnt make it.Or maby the thought of him living after what had happened was to hard to bare. thirty years later I went to the wall and it was then that I knew that i was wrong. Please forgive me guys Iwas certainly not a very good soldier or a friend Bruce G. Carr

My name is Larry Taylor, I served with the 15th from December 1970 to March 1971. I am trying to find a person with the last name "Smith" for a very good friend of mine. I understand this is a very common name and I don't have a first name, so this will be very dufficult. But, I am doing this for a good cause. I met a young man that happened to be child born in Vietnam during the war. He is a great young man and I want to help him find his American father. His father is an African American with the last name Smith. Mr. Smith fathered this child with a Vietnamese lady that worked at the officers club on Artillery Hill, her name is Hoa. He worked in some capacity with the Chu Hoi program. I know there are some men that would rather not be bothered with anything that happened in Vietnam, but I'm sure who ever this kids father is, he would love to meet this kid. He works for the Defense Dept., has masters degrees in math and science. He doesn't want anything from his father but to know who he is and to meet siblings if there are any. He waited this long to search for his father because he wanted to get his life together first so his father wouldn't think he wanted anything from him, other than to know him. I was so touched by some of the stories he told me that happened after the war to him and his family, just because he was part American. I am so proud of this kid, and I know his father would be as well. If anyone has any info, I would really appreciate it. Larry Taylor pleiku71@sbcglobal.net

Was also at Terminal North, Artillery Hill, Pleiku, in 70 & 71. Have some good picts from there also. I remember in 1970, 52nd Group would shoot every target I came up with. When I came back in 71, they would hardly shoot anything. Heard that orders came down not to shoot at anything other than "troops in contact". Hell of a way to run a war.

GOD LOVES HIS SOLDIERS

Sometimes it’s hard to protect what is right
Sometimes we’re scorned as for others we fight.
Some of us are willing regardless of loss
To commit our soul to save the cross.

Evil prospers on greed and human hate
Always eager to destroy and defecate.
God’s grace descends on the souls of man
Cleansing the impure wherever He can.

As long as man has struggled on earth
Life has had its troubles from birth.
God’s seed of goodness has delayed man’s demise
Thank Heaven for his heroes the strong and the wise.

The Lord adores his heroes of yesterday
Just how numerous, only He could say.
God loves his soldiers who line up to serve
By standing against evil His grace they deserve.

THE MAD DOGS OF MAN

Wherever dwell the mad dogs of man
There is corruption, plunder and hate.
In every city, town, or village
Those who promote distrust deserve their fate.

All are born as an innocent child
Till mislead by others along the way.
God has always loved his children
Though it breaks His heart when they stray.

The mad dogs of man never repent
For they have no sense of shame or sorrow.
Worshiping dominance and the dark side of life
Abusing victims as if there were no tomorrow.

God gives the will to sin no more
And to overcome evil unwilling to cease.
The mad dogs of man must be stopped
Who murder, rape and destroy world peace.

Samson, Solomon, Moses and David
Were chosen by God to stand tall.
They faced great odds and the fear of death
Refusing to ignore their call.

The time has come for the good men of earth
To band together to restrain the horde.
Standing firm against tyranny where it exists
Putting the mad dogs of man to the sword.

INTO THE TEETH of THE DOG

All through history man was born to struggle
Surviving nature, disease, greed, and war.
Since his conception he has remained the same
Choosing to serve evil or good as before.

Our boys and girls face the teeth of the dog
In hot spots all over our earth.
They leave their families and all they love
To protect and preserve what liberty is worth.

The foes they face are the mad dogs of man
With a desire to kill, disfigure and enslave.
They sing and dance to the death of others
Teaching principles of hate till the grave.

Support our troops who battle the horde
While we live the good life back home.
When you see a soldier show them your smile
Say “hello we love you and your not alone.”

If you served in Vietnam and were stationed at Camp Radcliff, An Khe, April 6th, 1970, the night 17 helicopters were damaged or destroyed, please contact: 801-216-6343[a]rodmitchell.info

A freelance investigation is under way to find out how the VC. (Vietcong, 2 sappers) got inside Camp Radcliff, accomplished their mission and then got out again so easily without being captured or killed in action. They committed the perfect crime, and obviously, a feat that only someone with super human abilities would have even attempted.

It's only speculation at this time but there are multiple scenarios that fit one eye witness's account of that night in An Khe:

(A.) The chain of command could have had previous knowledge of the pending attack and allowed it to take place for the following reasons:

(A1.) To create media hype and support for the war.

(A2.) To create media hype and keep Camp Radcliff open and operational.

(A3.) The entire attack was stagged as a movie prop for a Vietnam war documentary.

(B.) The chain of command were taken by surprise by the attack and blotched it so badly that it was necessary to conceal their blunder by falsifying reports, and by discharging GIs who knew too much about what had happened.

If you were at Camp Radcliff on the night of the attack, and especially, if you received an early out of Vietnam, under AR-212 around that time, your account of the attack is pertinent to this investigation. Your testimony could very well be the missing link that exposes a major cover up committed by the United States Army.

Affidavit (1. of 2.)
I was the one who found the location where the VC. exited the wire and left the perimeter of the camp. The entire scene was surreal, it certainly didn't look like 2 infiltrators had just scrambled through the wire fleeing for their lives. Quite the contrary, the grass was all pressed down and matted in such a fashion that it looked like someone had taken their time to purposely make it look picturesque; right in the center of the matted grass that led under the wire was a completely exposed satchle charge (touch sensitive bomb, 1 of 18 used). It was neatly wrapped in large leaves and perfectly placed on the ground like a military museum display. Looking back now in 20/20 hind sight, the whole scene comes to mind as a prop for a John Wayne, Hollywood war movie.

Mysteriously enough, the aerial flares (pop up canisters) were removed from the guard tower closest to where the VC. exited the wire at the perimeter of the camp, just days before the attack. Also, the searchlight positioned on top of Hon Cong Mountain was not utilized when a radio request for illumination was rendered by the GIs pulling guard duty in that same tower the night of the attack.

In July of 1970, I was 212ed out of the service for having a behavioral disorder (Passive/Aggressive Personality Disorder). However, up until the time of the An Khe attack, I had no prior mental health issues or history of such in my family.

To add insult to injury, I volunteered for the draft, a 2 year enlistment (Portland, Oregon, 1969). My military records (DD 214) lists me as a 3 year enlistee; something I had no knowledge of until my early out.

After Thoughts:
Upon receiving an AR-635-212 SPN 264 - separation from the U.S. Army in 1970, I completely disassociated myself from the establishment out of bitterness. I am now 58 years old and I've never even registered to vote in any political election in this country or its territories. Furthermore; I do not foresee my position, opinion and perception of the United States government changing at anytime soon.

I attest under penalty of perjury bound by the laws of the state of California, on June 10, 2008, that the aforementioned statements are true based on my own perception of what took place at Camp Radcliff, An Khe, Vietnam - 1970.

Served with the 261st Trans Co (Med Trk)(Whistlers) at TC Hill in Long Binh from Sep 66 to Sep 67. Was a Spec 5 at that time and ran convoys to Tay Ninh, Chu Chi, An Loc and other points.
I have since met the then Commander of the 261st several years ago when I was working for the Transportation School at Fort Eustis, Virginia as a DA Civilian. Also met then Battalion Sgt Maj Ledbetter and Battalion CO LTC DeHaven at Fort Eustis. GEN Dehaven is now deceased. Would like to hear from a fellow squad member by the name of John Bull if he reads this.
Also served at China Beach in DaNang in 1970 - 71 which included a later assignment back to Long Binh with the II Field Forces' 9th Trans Car Co (Car Airborne). The 1st Sgt at that time was SFC Richard (Dick) Gumm. If anyone knows him and where he is contact me. I've been contacted by Gary Arnett who was his driver at that time and now resides in Texas. He provided me with an interesting 20 minute video taken in the company area and on some of our trips to Saigon sometime in 71. I had forgotten all about it and was really surprized this 20 minute clip should show up in my life over 30 years later. Unfortunately there is no sound. Shows myself playing guitar, Gary Arnett, and a few other 9th Trans people. Awesome!!

AS THE MADNESS OF WAR TELLS ITS STORY

Goodness must overrule absolute evil
Though there’s nothing worse than war.
Sometimes we have no alternative option
Except to kill or be killed as before.

The best of plans can go amiss
With uncertainties till the first shots are fired.
As generals plot their path toward victory
It’s up to the wounded, the fallen and tired.

It’s not how strong or athletic you are
That decides who is blessed to return.
Those who survive are a product of luck,
And our prayers and support they’ve earned.

War seems to peel the veneer off society
Exposing our villain within.
A crazy obsession to rule over others
By death, destruction and sin.

The mayhem of conflict is a ongoing scourge
Robbing man from intended glory.
The hinge of history swings in all directions
As the madness of war tells its story.

I started trying to find guys I was with in 66-67 and it has recently grown to later years also. We have been sharing emails, pictures and just re-connecting. If you like I can add you to our email list.

If you are interested in that, please let me know. I have started a website for the 1/83rd. I am enclosing the link to that site. You might find it interesting. Send me you dates when you with the 1/83, what battery, etc. and I will update/add you on the roster I have on the website.

I was the supply sergeant of Svc Btry 6/15 from Aug 68 to about April or May 69.
I have gone through the guest book and purged names from it for the 6th, and would ask any and all members of the 6th of the 15th to make contact with me so we can continue to grow in size and become the friends that we were so many years ago.

SATAN’S HORDE

Overrun with war and uncontrolled leaders,
Our world becomes more dangerous each day.
dishonest politicians, criminals and the media
Survive by their falsehoods at play.

Bible believers preach, that the end is near
Our world as a whole is beyond reform.
God will eradicate all which is wicked
By his fire of eruption and storm.

To evil’s victory, I will never concede
May its supporters anguish in hell.
By the grace of God and the power of faith
The goodness of man will prevail.

What we accomplish is heaven’s measure
As patriots respond to the threats of man.
Protect and defend what we love till death
As the soldiers of Satan arise from the sand.

SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF WORLD WAR III

Our sons and daughters serve in harms way
To defend our way of life.
Some are students, some grandparents,
Many a husband or wife.

They face great odds without complaint
Gambling life and limb for little pay.
So far away from all they love
Fight our soldiers for whom we pray.

The plotters and planners of America’s doom
pledge to murder and maim all they can.
From early childhood they are taught
To kill is to become a man.

They exploit their young as weapons of choice
Teaching in heaven, virgins will await.
Destroying lives along with their own
To learn of their falsehoods too late.

The fearful cry we must submit.
And find a way to soothe them.
Where defenders worry if we stand down
The future for America is grim.

Now’s not the time to fight one another
Or kiss our enemy’s cheek.
All through history it remains the same
The strong enslave the weak.

May God continue to bless America
Refusing evil, the upper hand.
It’s up to us to stay resolute
Defending the liberty of Man.

I just wanted to let you all know that my Father, Timothy E. Bradshaw Sr., who served as a memeber of 15th Bn Field Artillery, Battery A, 2nd ID, passed away on Columbus Day, October 10, 2006. He was always proud to have been a member of this unit and a part of its history. On this Memorial Day, 2007, I Salute Him and his buddies. I am glad that in his last years he was able to reunite with a few of his old buddies like Oscar Cortez, Poston, and others. In 1999 I was honored to take him for a revisit to Fort Sill, Oklahoma where he served many years. At that visit, we also had the honor to visit his First Sergeant from the Korean War. His name, Charlie Limmerick, USA Retired. Thanks for this site, it is special to me and a nice way to remember my Father!

SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF WORLD WAR III

Our sons and daughters serve in harms way
To defend our way of life.
Some are students, some grandparents,
Many a husband or wife.

They face great odds without complaint
Gambling life and limb for little pay.
So far away from all they love
Fight our soldiers for whom we pray.

The plotters and planners of America’s doom
pledge to murder and maim all they can.
From early childhood they are taught
To kill is to become a man.

They exploit their young as weapons of choice
Teaching in heaven, virgins will await.
Destroying lives along with their own
To learn of their falsehoods too late.

The fearful cry we must submit.
And find a way to soothe them.
Where defenders worry if we stand down
The future for America is grim.

Now’s not the time to fight one another
Or kiss our enemy’s cheek.
All through history it remains the same
The strong enslave the weak.

May God continue to bless America
Refusing evil, the upper hand.
It’s up to us to stay resolute
Defending the liberty of Man.

Korea - April '69 - Nov '70, Camp St. Barbara, 2 Bn 76 arty, does anyone remember me? I'm trying to get my disability approved for Agent Orange Exposure. I had top secret clearances and went to Camp Casey and Camp Stanley plus many more bases. I'm trying to find someone who can substantiate that I was at the places that the VA has declared Agent Orange was used. You'd think being at the first line of defense at Camp St. Barbara, it would be on the list. I have a photo showing the difference in foliages on the DMZ. Naturally, the records I've been able to retrieve so far have not shown any of the top secret clearance missions or rosters of where my time was spent while in Korea.

Please if anyone can help me, it'd be so appreciated. A couple guys I do remember and have been trying to find are: Gene Autry from North or South Carolina, Joe Paul from Ohio, 1st Sgt Thomas E. Waters and Edward A. Allen. These are some names that were in the 1970 Camp St. Barbara year book: Ltc St. Julien R. Marshall Jr. was Battalion Commander; CSM Sterling Wheeler, Battalion Command Sgt; 1Lt Norman Sonne, Liason Officer; Robert Harris, CW2; 1Lt Donald Paschal, Property Book Officer; 1Lt Edward J Fiksher, Cincinnati, Ohio, Battery Commander.

WAR
As war is fought it takes charge,
And events spin out of control.
The madness of men can alter the soil
Which nourishes the roots of their soul.

Many things will forever change,
Far more then wished to be.
As the wrath of war starts to destroy,
Those things we fight to keep free.

War is the greatest plague of man,
Religion, state, and sanity.
Any scourge is more preferred,
Than the one which disables humanity.

When war breaks out, boundaries change
And all who die are a token,
Of the rage that must run it's course,
Before words of peace are spoken.

Under that law- the spouse can't work or the vets pension is reduced.
This is discriminatory against the spouse and labels the vet as a welfare case.

Brother redlegs,
Just a note from a DQS vet regarding our recent reunion. The NDQSA (National Dusters, 
Quads and Searchlights Association) which includes Vulcan and Hawk missle batteries 
(Air Defense Artillery)had quite a gathering at Charelston SC July 5-9. We had 115 vets 
and family totaling more than 150 present including one 6/14 redleg who came to say thanks 
and join the fun. We know you gun bunnies appreciated our fire power and we are grateful 
to have shared some mudhole FB or LZ with you guys for some brief period. You guys were 
in our thoughts and conversations for five days. Especially those of you who turned your 
175's and fired over our new bunker all night and turned it into a pile of rags. I thought
 that just happened at DakTo but it seems you guys were doing that all over South Vietnam. 
You should have been more careful where you parked.
Buy the way, my mom gave me all my letters from Nam, in one I mention Jim Chambers from 
Graham Washington. He might have been with C/7/15th at Tahn Cahn or DakTo April 71.
 Contact me.

You did an excellent job on this site. I would not have been drafted as it turns out, that is why I found you site. After these many years I finally was curious enough to find out if I would have been drafted.Feb 12th is my birthday. I joined the Army and entered 19 Sep 1969. I always felt I owed my country a couple of years of my life, I love my country, but sometimes hate my government, It never occurred to see what my lottery number was, until now. I went to Berlin and not Viet Nam. The TAPS play on this site brought tears to my eyes. Again, thank you for all the time and effort you have expended.

I enjoyed reading your website, it was informative and well written.  I have not met any members of your unit, but I certainly remember your guys.  I was in the 2/1 Cav (Blackhawks) in 67 & 68.  We certainly appreciated the firesupport we received, but never had the opportunity to meet you or know who you were. We have a website for 2/1 Cavalry and some of our troopers have websites where they share their pictures. If you want these website addresses I can send them.
Thanks for sharing old memories.
Loren D. Hutchins (Hutch).

 I served with the USAF at Lai Khe Nov 66 to Feb 68.  I was with the forward air control unit 19th TASS.  I think the 15th had a 105 battery just south of the runway at Lai Khe, right next to were we parked our Bird Dog aircraft. Anyway, those 105's sure worked their ass off while I was there.  There was also a 155 outfit at the south end of the base camp.  I liked watching those dudes fire.
 Best of luck to all.
