Kenneth Smith question from 2/7/2019. I believe the name of the black man you were asking about was named June Goins. I was staff sgt in charge of HQ heavy junk section.

Just curious if any other of you in the 19th were assigned to a unit in Germany after Vietnam. I was RA so had 15 months left to serve so I was sent to Germany. First to the 93rd Float Bridge company then transferred to the 540th Combat Engineering Group, which later became the 7th Combat Engineering Brigade. Curious if some you did go to Germany and what units you served in.

to Steve Snider,I have better info on getting hearing aids from the va. you need to sign on to e-benefits then apply for a disability,tinunitous or ringing in the ears caused by loud noises.Land mines,artilary or firing weapons cause this to happen.The va will call you in for an exam and hearing test but they can only determine the ringing in the ears by you saying so. p.s. tinunitus is worth 10 percent disability.I also served on lz thunder in 69.

As fellow warrior from CO.D 1969 Fred Thumith said we can't forget. Fred I hope you ended up getting you Purple Heart for you injuries. In the movie Platoon it was said, you will love the Nam forever, HOW DID THEY KNOW.
For some the battle has ended
For the survivors the War rages on.

I served at LZ English from september 67 to sept 68. Have always wanted to locate and thank a 2nd LT, who recently took over our platoon, A company, about July 9th, 1968. He forced me to put on my steel pot (stupidly had not been wearing) as we went out on mine-sweep, July 9th, 68, and ambushed by claymore at junction of Hwy 1 and our feeder to LZ. Two died and all of my point squad were wounded, some terribly. Sgt Barber and Sp-4 Gibbons were killed instantly at my side. I was hit just above the bridge of my nose, a clean hole through my steel pot and helmet liner, sustained a minor head wound. Anyone know the name/ location/contact of that 2nd LT on that day?

Hope all are doing well during this pandemic. Wish I were young enough to volunteer to help the 19th if they get an assignment to help out in the pandemic. Maybe they already have. I guess the feeling to help out in a crisis never goes away. I would need a backpack for all my meds! Steve Snider, I was in the area of LZ Thunder in early 1968.
