Thank you for visiting our pages. We would love it if you would add to this guestbook we are keeping, but we were getting spammed terribly by low grade reprobates so we had to disable the guestbook.



Hi I'm an inactive List member with a question. Would somebody please tell whether the VN jump wings we wore had a little gold star beneath the parachute or were they all plain silver. I'm reaching the age when I want to put together medals etc for my children when I die and would like to get the details right. Thanks

What a fascinating site. I think that the Special Forces Soldiers are for the most part Insane. Thank God for this type of "insanity". without it the rest of could not live our lives in this great country of ours. It is too bad that the people in DC are trying to eliminate this type of craziness from our culture especiallt at the top. Let us hope that they will not go weasily and continue their insanity(bravery and duty) and keep us safe" I hope you do not take offence at my remarks. They are meant only as praise. I met a number of you at Bill's funeral and fealt that most of you shared Bills "insanity". I served with the ASA in Korea in the mid 60s. I recently went to a reunion of about 50 ASAers and their wives from that era. We were stationed on Kang Wha Do an issland north of the 38th parralell. We didn't know of the danger we were in thebn and only realize it now in retrospect. I guess we shared a little of your craziness, but not nearly as much as the great sense of Duty, Bravery, and Patriotism you and yours did. By the way, I want to thank your wives and children also, as they too served by supporting you in a way only those who have had a brother in a wheelchair from wounds in Vietnam can know. My other brother Capt. Chuck Pelletier has been suck since 1971. Thank you again for your service to me and my family. I will keep all of you in my prayers

My father, Master Sargent Anthony Caprara, passed away back in the 80's. We were fortunate to have the local unit from Fort Lewis come out and treat him to a SF burial. I have been searching for information about him and his SF service. I know that he was inducted in the early to mid 50's and got out somewhere in 1964-65. He made master sargent three different times. He was stationed at Fort Bragg for a while and I think he was involved somehow in the Bay of Pigs and the Korean conflict. If anyone has any information, please email me. And thank you one and all for your service to our country.

Hello men, nice to know there is a great site with the best warriors known to man. I was in Nam with SF A-402 Mike Force. I replaced George Ley as medic, George had a similar fate as Forrest Gump, shot in the buttox. There is a great group of SF men out there belonging to the Special Forces Association and the Special Operations Association, that attend yearly conventions, what a great way to reunite with old acquaintances. Hurry, they are leaving at a fast rate. Thanks for letting me leave a note in your guest book, De Oppresso Liber.

Legit?

David Christian was inducted into the U.S. Army in 1966 at 401 North Broad Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as a Private (E-1). He travelled by train to Fort Jackson, South Carolina and then on to Fort Gordon, Georgia where he was assigned to Basic Military Training. After graduation, he was ordered to Fort Ord, California for Advanced Infantry Training (AIT). He was then selected to be a Drill Sergeant but before he could sew his Corporal stripes on his sleeves, he received orders to Officer's Candidate School (OCS). After graduation from OCS and Airborne School, he was assigned to the JFK Special Warfare Center and School Fort Bragg, North Carolina to be a Green Beret. After completing his training at the JFK Special Warfare Center and School, he was then assigned to Company A, 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) where he continued to train and jump while preparing for Vietnam. During this period, a handful of U.S. Army Special Forces trained officers were recruited for the Long Range Recon Patrol units in Vietnam. The LURRP/75th Rangers were intriguing to Christian because he could collect jump pay while being assigned to a "leg" unit, the 1st Infantry Division (The Bloody Red One). A two month tour with the 75th Rangers brought an assignment to develop a Recon Platoon for the 1/26th Infantry of the same 1st Infantry Division. Christian was told that he had a free hand in developing the platoon with LURRP/Ranger and Green Beret skills. He was also told that as an officer he could go to the field every day to lead his men in combat. The unit became infamous with the enemy and was called "Christian's Butchers." The morale of the unit was high, Christian was in the field every day, and contact with the enemy was fierce.

INFO ON EDWARD "MICKEY" CALLAHAN?
Great site. I was trying to learn more about my late Grand-Uncle's long military career. He passed away this past March. As far as I can tell from letters he had in his house and what my Grandmother (his sister) can tell me, he was in Airborne Special Forces 1st Group, 5th Division. In one letter he was listed as a 1st Class Warrant Officer. From what I've read many Warrant Officers were helicopter pilots, he was not. Apparently he was a polygraph operator (which I had never heard of polygraphs being used in Vietnam before). I have documentation for several Commendation Medals, Bronze Stars and 1 Purple Heart received for actions while in Vietnam. I found some old x-rays showing lots of metal shrapnel that he had in his chest up till his death. He would have been in his mid-to-upper 40's at the time having originally enlisted at 18 (Dec '44) toward the end of WWII. He also served during and after Korea, mostly doing counter-intelligence from what I've found so far. I don't think he actually saw combat in Korea, but I may be wrong. He got the nickname Mickey while in the service because of his strong Irish ancestry (in fact I always called him Uncle Mickey and didn't know his real name until about 10 years ago). I welcome any and all info that anyone may know about him. Email to mail@sissond.com
Thank you and Gob bless the U.S. Military!

To begin with thank you all for your service and commitment to our country and our freedom. A debt that can never be repaid. My reason for this email is that I am looking for anyone that served with my Uncle. Master Sergeant Dino Hernandez. He has since passed away ('77).He served in Korea, Bay of Pigs and Vietnam and no telling where else. He retired in '73 or '74. 1st Air Cav, 101st, 82nd, 173rd are the groups he was in. Dont know what SF group or groups.

Hey guys, I go by Tim Keenan. Spent a summer at Camp Hardy in 69. Don Valentine was our Camp Counselor. I read his memoirs about starting out hating it and then grew to like dealing with about 40 teens. We went though about 9 weeks of assorted evolutions that included Airborne at Sukiran.
My half brother John Kalish played chess with some of you guys I'm sure. He lived there for thirty years until he passed away in 2002.
Proud to have met & known some of you.

I just stopped by...looking for an old "friend of the family"...Arthur Schultz: last time I saw him was in 66/67...at that time my brother was in Thailand and my cousin was in VN w/ the 173rd...Arthur was wearing his uniform and gave a "presentation" to my 2nd Grade class, which included a graphics/board illustrating (the) various methods used by VC/PAVN to wound/kill GI's...dung "laced" pungy sticks in pits-streams; grenade in a (suspended) tin can linked to tripwire, etc... Arthur made a lasting impression upon me, which I'll never forget...and will forever be grateful to him for; I've been "alert" for both overt/covert danger ever since...I'd say it "opened" my eyes. My cousin later died from wounds (he) suffered in VN (from a bouncing betty).

God Bless you all...and Thank You...not just for the big sacrafices you make, but for the "little things" you do as well (for these simple acts of caring make a difference in the people's lives, which you touch, and sometimes these are what matter most); and may the Lord keep you safe.

Also sorry, I�m trying to track anybody who returned from Vietnam and had their ODA reflagged to ODA 571. I�m trying to track down the history of my ODA, as I know it when it returned from Vietnam it was reflagged to ODA 571, then in the early 80�s it was changed to ODA 575 (because it was a dive team) then in 2007 it was changed to ODA 5315. If there is anybody out there that was on the ODA during that time or anybody who knows what ODA number ODA 571 was before they got back to Bragg I would really love to talk to you.

Don Valentine referred me to your site. I am looking for assistance with a book I'm writing on growing up in the military (Army) during WWII. I need some information re being aboard a military troop transport in 1946 from San Francisco to Manila. Thank you!

Would Like to find out if You have a background on a SFC Retired James Glynn who lives in Kansas. he touts himself as a ex SF medic(5th Grp) who was a POW and he is now in for the MOH. I can't find him anywhere I think this guy is a phony but maybe not. If he was SF fine let me know. Says he has a few silver stars etc etc etc. Gives speeches and counseling presenting his Bio as such.
