  1. I was in the 362Signal Co. Dalat, during TET 1968. WE were converted to11B and did S&D. We secured the MP Villa and vehicles. Also I was on a “Reactionary Team” that retrieved people from the Embassy, downtown. Not much written about our activities during the 1968 Offensive(classified??). My DD-214 has no record of my time there!

  2. My brother and I sent Christmas card and cigarettes to a Captain W T Cooper in 1965. He replied in March 1966. I was in second grade at Catholic school in small town in Ohio. I have always wondered and prayed that Captain WT Cooper made it home and had a good life. Does anyone have any information on this man ? God Bless..

    • I was an advisor at the VN Military Academy from Dec 66 til April 67. Did not encounter Cooper. Sorry.

      • Captain W T Cooper was an advisor to a Vietnamese combat engineer battalion . 1966, Thanks for any information. And thanks for your service. God Bless you all.

  3. I was in Dalat Dec 66 to May 67, as an advisor at the VNMA. I recall Chuck Radler, and an AF LTC, first name Larry. There was also a CWO who gave “lessons” in bridge. I remember our French-trained cook who gave us fabulous meals. Our villa was not too shabby either, private bedrooms, tiled baths. Coming from a field assignment with VN Rangers I thought heaven was near. Anyone out there from this time period??

  4. My Dad was SFC E7 Bob Burk, Operations/Intelligence Advisor Team 34, Don-Duong 65–66. He served with now BG Forrest T Gay III Ret. I have several pictures that I digitized from the area if anyone has interest.

    • I was stationed at don duong in 1967 I would like to see any pictures you have of the place, your dad must have been there when the Seabees were there, they left after I was there for a few months, thanks

  5. In 1972 to 1973 I was living in the enlisted men’s compound which was a French Villa on Tran Hung Dao Street, Dalat. There were only a Sargent and myself in this compound. Most of the Americans were gone by this time.

    • Sam, would you happen to remember an incident where the Air Force crew chiefs were ambushed driving down from the air field? I don’t recall the date but this happen in 1968.
