  1. I have some 1970 dated slides annotated “Team House” An Phoul (I believe this is spelled correctly). Can anyone tell me if this is actually the team located at Nha Trang? I ask because many other slides that came with this one were taken in and around the Nha Trang/Central Highlands area.

      • can you please email them to me  webereod@yahoo.com   I’ll take a look and see if I can remember anything about them,  Am going toscan a couple of my pictures later today of Nha Trang

  2. when was the last time you tried to get access to Maxwell library? And have you filed a specific Freedom of Information request to them? I was at Maxwell AFB 3 years ago researching their files to help ID what ordnance was being carried on specific aircraft for specific missions, which also included specific locations. They were very helpful then. I also met a lady who was researching her a family member. She had filed a FOIA request and got access. It was also my understanding (according to the VA) that most all classified files on VN war were declassified about 10 years ago. If you file a FOIA request and it comes back denied, take that reply to your Congressman

  3. Ronnie, please contact me at webereod@yahoo.com. It was my time at the 11th (after my major screw up) that turned me from a young drinking soldier to what I later became. But the 11th was a fun time too.

  4. I was assigned to Advisory Team 11 during 1970 and 1971. I spent 14 months with the Team. I remember SGM Michael Weber during this time. We were both SPC’s at that time. Captain Edward Hager and Myself ran many arms supply missions to the mountains during that time. SGT Ronnie Ferguson

    • My Father Jack McCrary was in Nha Trang….went down 29th Dec.’67. 64-0547 over Nth. Laos….314th TAW Squadron…Flight Engineer..nickname Redeyes..Plane was located and excavated in ’92 at the 4500 foot location of a 5000 ft. karst….11 man crew lost…8 identified thru mtDNA from over 800 bone and teeth fragments repatriated at crash site…Took Hawaii 7 years to conclude forensics…Arlington group burial in 2000 for this heroic crew.
      2 years ago I am reading decades old military documents of my Father’s career, Began researching some info on line with his personal ID numbers….His name pops up on the USG’s Last Known Alive List. (AKA) LKA list.The DIA records and notates he made radio contact hours after the plane was reported missing….I cross referenced the other crew members names and none was on the LKA list… Never at any time did the USG notify my family that his name was on the LKA list…I always thought he perished with the rest of the crew members on board….But I found this info on several GOV. web sites….The saddest reality is that we know we left patriots behind…it is documented. Many men were left to survive or die in enemy hands….My Father’s remains were not at that crash site…he either saw it coming and jumped to safety, or he was not on that plane….I conferenced with retired Col. John Gargus last year. one of 3 mission planners for that fateful flight and he assured me my Dad perished with the rest of the crew members….My hope is that he perished with the plane and crew and is not being held captive, or was tortured to death, or suffered a long death….WAR
      nobody wins.
      I was lucky enough to locate a photo of him on line standing beside C130e 64-0561..OMG what a thrill to see him propped against his 1st love….The Herkybird…taken in Nam sometime in ’67. I have networked with the great gents here at Hurlburt Field, where I currently live to further my research…No one is talking…They cared and shared, but I still don’t have answers…Its like a new wound in my chest…It feels like I am starting all over with his whereabouts. No one knows how it feels because you are not in my shoes…I wish I had not located this information….He would be 81 this year, and his family is known for longevity….Anything is possible…. may still be alive…

      The mission is classified for 62 years…They will not allow me access at Maxwell…Wish I knew what my next step is…My brothers tell me leave it alone, but I am not finished…

      Regards
      Cynthia McCrary-Harris
