Hello, my name is Tomas Diaz. My father is Sgt. Thomas Diaz. He is now deceased but I'm hoping to connect with someone who can assist me with some historical information. My father was assigned to C battery 6th/27th artillery in Vietnam. I believe between late 1966 and early 1968. I'm building a shadow for his uniform and am having trouble finding what patches would be correct. If anyone knew my father or can help me I would be very appreciative. My email is tgdiaz2421@Gmail.com
Does anyone know how to get in touch with Mario Dan Solorio. He was clerk typist for D Co 2/12. I was WIA on Jan 26 1969 and never saw any of them again. Where was D company located in Quan Loi. I remember going up into one of the guard towers and partying at night. Also looking for Mike Gill, Ronald L Combs, Snoody, Culpepper
I was Lt Grant Henjyoji's radio operator till Jan 26 1969.
I and my 319th Transportation Company members from Long Binh regularly brought Quan Loi artillery rounds Sept 68-Aug 69. We remember the place well with its danger, red dirt, deafening noise and the long dirty trip with overnight stays often. I have written a book "Vietnam Convoy Trucker" which speaks of several incidents we had on those convoys. Contact me for signed copies or buy them on XulonPress.com/bookstore, Amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com or Lifeway.com. On my computer room wall hangs An Official Army Reserve Historical Painting copy titled "Quan Loi, Vietnam January 1969" which depicts one of our convoys under attack at the sharp downhill curve outside An Loc heading towards Long Binh. God bless all who served at Quan Loi.
I was stationed in Quan Loi February 1969 - February 1970.
I spoke with Roger Mallory and he said that I would need to request membership to be able to receive information on upcoming Reunions.
My cell phone number is 434-960-9453.

Hi folks. Louis Greer here3. I was in C btry, 6/27th from April, 1969 until November 1970. I sure hope you guys who are still around can attend this years Reunion in Las Vegas. Anyway, if anyone is out there who was with me during those time frames, drop me a note. I started out on number 2 gun, 8inch. Don't remember how long I was on it but it was a while. Then I became the BC's driver for the rest of the time I was in the unit. Anyone remember a Corporal Riffey who was on #2 gun or anyone else. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
