My high school is doing a project memorializing servicemen whose names are on the Vietnam Memorial Wall, and I received James Myron Moser's name. He served from September 1967 through March 1968 in this Infantry. If anyone has any information, photos, or stories about James, please contact me.
Thank you so much for your service.

If any of the guys who was with B Co 3rd of the 8th serving at Ft. Lewis starting in December,65 maybe remembers Angel Ortiz and what happened to him after we shipped out for Nam please email me. Angel did not ship out as he was the only son for the family.
I know that Angel was from the Bronx's in NY and he had a sister. Other then what I have already told you about him, that's it.
Thanks Guys.

I have decided to try to fill in some of the blanks from my service. If anyone can help me out it would be appreciated.

Before being transferred to Recon after the Battle of Dak To I believe I was the Medic for the Battalion’s Engineering Platoon from July – Nov, 1967. We were more less permanently located at some base camp where it seemed that our only mission was sweeping a road for mines between our camp and a Green Beret base each morning. In four months, I do not believe we found one mine or even were in a threatening situation.

Though the patrol personnel changed daily I had to go out each morning. Fortunately we always had a vehicle with us and I was able to ride both ways 

Does anyone have any information on where we were based or any other information that would help me fill in the gap.

I recall almost every moment after I was transferred but that period is just a haze of smoke, if you all understand what I mean.

Thanks in advance.

A Lady made a post on a Nam FB Page asking for info on a certain boy she gave a name and said that he was stationed at Camp Enari from 11/1966-1967. His unit didn't strike a bell with me being in B/?8th from 12/2/65 - 11/20/1967. She gave the unit as being in the 14th Inf. knew for a fact that the 3 Infantry's that made up the 4th ID were the 8th, 12th and 22nd. I knew she either was wrong of correct on her ID. It started me to thinking about all of the skuttle buzz over our trade off between our 3rd Brigade trade off with the 25th Infantry Division. Could she have been correct or mistaken with her 14th Infartry name?

Thinking today of my blue-leg brothers and Hill 724. I especially remember following in Steve Edmundson's footsteps as we left that hill. He walked point when we left the hill and this red-leg was scared shitless walking behind him, but I knew I was in good hands. Walking through crispy-critters and fresh cat-holes, still steaming. It was a hairy time and I can look back on it an know I served with some terrific American Heroes. Welcome home all. Digger

Brothers, Labor Day has passed, and it Is time to start planning our wreath laying at "THE VIETNAM VETERANS MEMORIAL", "THE WALL", In Washington D.C.Mary & i always spend a few days in the area, and have a great memorable time year after year.
As Has been my tradition, I try to have a different team of two Brothers do the honors of placing the wreath every year. as of now, I have no-one. If you wish to help lay the wreath, please come forward, as I do this First come first serve. I have arranged for V.I.P.seating for the program, so your wife or Family, will have a place to sit.
Also, I have information on a hotel, that Mary & I stay at every year. Of Course, there are many other hotels, so the choice is yours.
November 11, is a beautiful time to visit Washington D.C. unless it rains, then its a wet time. Please consider doing this honor, for our fallen brothers!

Brothers at last; those of us who were in the 9 Days of May battle will have our story told. The book is in it's final production, and I am told that it will be published in May of 2017. The publishers want the book to come out on the 50th anniversary of the battle, and the 100th anniversary of the 4th ID. I am just one of the guys the author has been in touch with over the years. There have been some guys who wanted no part in the input of the book; and that has been very unfortunate; because us 3/8th guys needed to be more involved. Well, that's all behind us now, and I just want to say God bless all of you that are still with us. You can go to gallery 3 of my photos and see the proposed book cover.
