Comments:I joined the Army (vol.) in 1967, to go to VN to find out for myself why "we" were there, because I did Not believe the official narrative. They sent Six (6) of us from AIT (FT. Leonard Wood), to Germany, instead! I "re-upped" in Germany to go to VN & arrived there just in time for the 1968 TET "festivities", which had actually started, just four (4) days prior. It took me less than one week to find out that the aforementioned "Official, why we were there, Gov't. narrative"... was as I suspected, a complete Lie. I spent my first 13 months "based out of" Camp Eagle, near Phu Bai (W/NW of Hue), but my time was actually spent (over 11 months) up in the A Shau Valley (anyone remember "Hamburger Hill" (don't get me started on That Fiasco!!). There are only Two (2) of us left ("possibly" a third) from my first unit... the rest (Most All of them) either committed suicide after coming "home" or have long ago, passed away from "AO" - Agent Orange cancers and other related complications.. which our Gov't & Monsanto (who, developed it), told us that "AO" was "not harmful" to us!! More Lies! Anyway, I "interviewed" with the Outlaws & Mavericks in early 1969 for nearly a week... went back north, to Camp Eagle and got word a week later that I was "accepted" by the 175th (Outlaws & Mavericks), so I had my original orders to report to the Yuma (AZ) Proving Grounds (Aviation weapons systems, testing), changed to head south to Vinh Long & the 175th. I never made any lasting friendships (except for One in particular, and three others, one has since died of cancer.. all of whom, I happened to meet up with, one day in Branson, MO. back in 2016(?)).. with any of the crews on the various 1st & 2nd platoon "slicks", nor the various 3rd platoon Maverick "Charlie" models (gunships), because I was Never assigned to any particular "ship" the whole time I flew with them, until Nov. 1970. I was the 175ths Only "floater" and was a gunner on whatever ship they needed me on, whether for just a single Sortie, or for a week or two, filling in for any assigned gunner that may have either been sick, or on R&R, etc, etc. I flew on every 2nd platoon ship (and was assigned to their "hooch" as my "place of residency"), several 1st platoon ships, and various Maverick gunships at one time or another, also was assigned to the C&C ship, and flew out to Sadec early every morning for nearly two (2) months, to pick up a Vietnamese "counter part" to our (US) Col.(?) to oversee Daytime LZ and engagement OP's. I also flew on the "Flare Ship" as well, during nighttime engagement operations. WHERE - OH WHERE, have 52+ years "Gone" to, since those days?!!? I guess, the same place as my hair and my waistline... though, the latter is still not too far off from those days... So Long ago. IF... any of you Outlaws or Mavericks happen to be reading this rant, and remember me at all.... don't be too bashful to "reach out" to me. My Email, is above here, in the info. Blessings to you & yours... and stay Safe & "Well". PS: I was suppose to go back to Vinh Long after I got back "Stateside", to go to work for Dynelectron Corp. (in Vinh Long) as a diesel mechanic, and get married to my sweetie over there, who worked part time at the 175ths "Officers Club", but was also a school teacher. I "somehow" (they never did figure out what the cause was) contracted a very high fever (they told me it ran from 104.3 to 106 for nearly 2 weeks, after she and her parents & I went out for dinner, down in Can Tho one evening)... anyway, I didn't find out until after returning stateside, that "someone" forged my name on a Contract Cancellation... while I was "out of it" with the fever, in the hospital in Tan Son Nhut (Airbase, near Saigon)... and although Dynelectron Corp. offered to "re-instate" my contract... VN was "closed to me" and they gave me a choice of four other countries, none of which were even close to VN, or SE Asia in general, even though they had an opening in Thailand (Siam). I received a "wire" in April 1972 from the VN Embassador in DC, telling me that my fiance's remains had been found and identified in Cao Lanh (where she was currently teaching.. west of Vinh Long and Sadec, on the Mekong River), after a 2am rocket attack by the NVA & "chuck". Have never been back there, since then.

Comments:My Father was an Army Birddog pilot in 66 and 67. One of the stories he told me about when I was young was one battle he was on when the helicopters went in and the VC were hidden in Elephant grass and multiple got shot down and the mayhem that ensued. He passed away in 2017 and I started to investigate on the WEB his stories. The Battle of Easter Sunday is the only event I find that resembles that story and is plausible based on his time in country and his AO. I will leave it at that because I don't want to pre-load anyone's memory and inadvertently bias them toward "Yeah, that was your Dad" if you know what I mean. My questions is, does anyone that was in the battle that day remember anything about an Army FAC being there that day?

Comments:Came across some of my father, Michael Miley, old stuff cleaning out my place. My father passed away in 2011. He was a SP5 member of the 175th N CO. He was in Vietnam from, I believe, December 1966- Sept 1967. I have bags of pictures he took while in the service. If anyone would like to see any of them, I'd be happy to send pictures of them.
