    Seeking information on the crash of Chinook 07999 on 10 July 1970. Did you know of this crash? Did you know the members of the 13th Arty that were involved in this crash? I am researching for a book I am writing and would appreciate any information you might have on the crash and those involved.
    SFC Elroy Simmons of HHB was killed in this crash. Was anyone else of the 13th Arty aboard at the time?

    My father (Gregory Thomas Ford) was in the 3/13th Field Artillery 25th Infantry in Cu Chi from February ’67 – February ’68. Just had a long but rare father-son talk about some of his experiences last night which led me here. Let me know if the name rings a bell and thanks to all who served.

  4. John K. Nelson

    I served with The Clan HQ of the 3/13th from 1Dec 1968 thru 3 Dec 1969 at Cu-chi. I humped pro-jo’s out to Bravo Battery a few times, and my work also brought me to Saigon and Tay Ninh. As soon as I figure out how to ignite cookies on my computer, I’m gonna sign up to this site and chat with some of the members.
    I have a photo I’d like to share at that time of what I believe is Bravo Battery I snapped in December of 1968. Perhaps someone can identify it. Until then, thank you for the opportunity. John

His name will hold a prominent spot on the monument. I can be reached at 304-261-4704. I also have a Facebook page which is Morgan County Vietnam Veterans memorial fund.

    I had the honor and privilege of serving as XO of B 3/13 from Nov. 69 through Nov. 70. I reported in to the Battery when it was positioned at “The Sugar Mill,” then under the command of Capt. Hanna. He was one of the finest officers I served with. The BC after Hanna had been aide-de-camp to the Div. Deputy Commander, and the general told him to pick a battery to command. He picked our battery because, as he told me, it was the best in the division.
    This is a great site. Thanks to all that have made it possible.
    Viewing the material on the site has been an emotional experience.
    To all of you Bravo veterans, thank you for your service and welcome home.

    Thanks for putting together a great website. I’ve really enjoyed seeing all the photos and reading the journals, guestbook etc. I thought I had lost all contact with everyone and found your website a few days ago. I don’t think a day goes by I don’t think about our experiences in Vietnam. From the reunion pictures everyone looks great and makes me want to attend the next one. I regret not staying in touch and hope to see all of you soon.

    The previous message from Kara Hackney is important to me. I saw a posting where she was locking for anyone from her dad’s unit in Vietnam (B 3/13). I contacted her and informed her that I was in her dad’s unit and although we were not close friends I did remember him. While trying to help her find some one who knew her dad (Jerry Hackney) and was a close friend, we found James Hunt, and he put me in contact with Charles McCloud. Guy’s thanks to both of you for trying to help. It was good to hear from you. If there is anyone out there who can share memories with Kara please contact her, if not her try me (bobeberwein@verizon.net) and I will pass along any information to her.

    In Memory of My Father, Jerry Hackney “Hack,” 1947-1997
    Dad served on a gun crew with Bravo 3/13 from March 23, 1970-November 11, 1970.
    I would love to hear from anyone who knew my father, who passed from cancer in 1997. You can reach me at karahackneyphotography@outlook.com.
    I have some group photos, some which have many unidentified buddies in them (Dad surely knew, but I didn’t find the photos until this year). Three names that are written on the photos are John Cole and “Slithy,” as well as Dad’s canine buddy, Howard. Dad also mentioned two buddies’ names that my mom can remember: Paul Bullbear “Chief,” a Sioux Indian from South Dakota, and “Dogg” Harris, a black man from Detroit. Some photos are labeled to be at Snider (Snyder), Base Camp Cu Chi, and Long Bien.
    My sincere gratitude to each and every one of you for your service and sacrifice.
    God bless,
    Kara Hackney
