I was in Headquarters Company, Recon Radio Operator. LT.WRIGHTENOUR was or Officer in Charge.
I continuously worry about Mike Lopez who was the other Recon Radio operator in Hq.
I love all of you men not a day goes by in my life I don't think about you.
I'm seventy now and I feel like our efforts in the different hamlet's and towns made a difference in the lives of those Vietnamese we came in contact with.
Again, I love all of you. Welcome Home

Thanks Richard for the response on the 19th Engr site on the subject of agent orange. Sorry to hear of your injury and that broken back OUCH! Don’t have diabetes yet but certainly have high sugar and also dealing with melanoma cancer which they say is also related to agent orange. To think they never considered these issues when spraying all over the country. Good luck and take care

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.

Make that A company, 19th Engineers about September 67 to September 68. Any of my squad out there who survived the ambush on July 9th, 1968: Michael Martin, William Simpson, Hector Dela Cruz, Kenneth Bonfiglio or Bonfiolia, Joseph Fisco or Pisco?
