Thank you Jack Jacobs. Yes, my father was Thomas LZ Jobbins - he is not very computer savvy and I'm trying to take on a project of finding people that he may have known while he was is Vietnam. Circa 1969 he was part of the D Co, 19th Eng BN, 18th Eng BDE and was near the provinces of Quang Tri, Quang NGAI, and spent a lot of time at "LZ thunder" Base (*thus the nickname LZ Jobbins). Names that he can recall (spelling may not be 100% accurate) Gale Rowe, Gunther, Sgt John Lindberg (Rest In peace), Felix Jacques (Rest in peace). I'm just looking for any insight at all... And thank you all for your service!

Anyone know Thomas LZ Jobbins who was in D co. at LZ Thunder? His son viewed my post on Youtube and said his dad served there but I don't know him. Email me if you know him and I will try to get him to contact you.

Gentlemen,
I read on facebook that there are about 857,000 veterans left of the 2.5 million who served in Vietnam. If that is correct and we all live to be 85, we will be losing 3,570 a month. Since we will not all live to 85, we will probably lose about 4,000 a month. We will be losing a battalion a week for the next 20 years!! Interesting and sobering!! That is if my math is correct and the facts are correct.
