I just received my book and could not put it down till I finished it, Great Adventures From My Life, by Scott Sharon. He was 3rd Platoon Leader in late 68, than went to Battalion and I think CO of C company it tells about his childhood and his detailed time in Vietnam and after, I suggest anyone to order it for its a very interesting read, on our website is the link to get the book in the NEWS section. Thanks, Kenneth Smith D Co 67-68 LZ Thunder

Yo, fellow engineers. You may already know about this, but there is a 2016 documentary called "My Fathers Vietnam". It features an engineer unit in our area operation, and our two main roles of mine-sweep and construction. However, unless A company remained in the Duc Pho/Moduc area after the move south in Sep of '69, then the unit referenced in the film is someone other then the 19th. What was the name of A company's LZ? "Liz" and "Bronco" are named in the documentary. Anyway fabulous work and the first film I've ever seen in where combat-engineers are strongly depicted. Check it out. Produced by Sorren Sorrensen.

I am returning to Nam in Jan 2017, and will tour the areas north of Bong Son where the 19th were located. What memories are rising to the surface! I was in B Co. and just hope I can find the basecamp somewhere north of LZ North
English on my tour. I was also at LZ Lowboy for a short time, and I should find that site.

I was a New Zealand Army medic hosted by 19th Engineers at LZ North English between June- December 1968. I drove a grey jeep and my role was to visit the dispensary in Tam Quan village, assess patients, treat or transport back to our hospital in Bong Son village.
During my six month with your 19th Engineering Battalion I made many friends and through this web site have tried to unsuccessfully make contact after 48 years. In particular I am looking for 4 Engineers whom were travelling with me on the late afternoon of Thanksgiving day , Thursday 28th November
1968 when we were ambushed(roadside) whilst returning to LZ Nth English. This ambush happened at 5-10pm about 2-3 clicks South of our camp.
We were all wounded and medivacced to different hospitals ect and I have not seen these guys with whom I shared a horrific experience since that day in 1968. It is the 28th November today in New Zealand( we are one day ahead of the USA) so my thoughts return to that day once again.
I would appreciate any help or contact with these three guys whose names follow. I am not sure of there ranks, company or spelling of their names. I remember them as Bird( Bryd?)
Brown and Smith? ( Brown and Smith were returning from R&Rand were thumbing a ride back to camp when Bird and I stopped and picked them up.)
Hope there is someone in the Engineering community can advise or assist. Not understanding the American search sites or having service numbers ect has has probably led the lack of success during 40 years of searching. Enjoy your Thanksgiving and welcome home.
