Siemens fired me because, TOM HAS A FORMER MILITARY BACKGROUND PERCEIVED TO BE IN THE TYPE OF UNIT THAT WAS INVOLVED IN KILLING! A woman in Ohio WOKE UP @3AM and accused me of attempted murder! She claimed that, If i was down there, I'd assemble my BLAHBLAH troops and kill him! I was with the 11th and 12th Special Forces Groups. Call Siemens because the DOL OFCCP found they VIOLATED the Vietnam War/Era Readjustment Act of 1974. Call 800-303-5999. Sine Pari, Captain (Ret) Thomas Carter

I served in 7th SF 1961-62 then 5th SF Vietnam 1962-63. It was a great pleasure to serve with these units and I must admit that it has impacted my life and my life's journey. I have great admiration for all who served and continue to serve in Special Forces. This web site was moving but it would have been a pleasant surprise to see a name or names of men I served with.

Another day in remembering the good, bad, happy, sad, afraid, proud and most rewarding time in the military. Being a team mate with the bravest, most professional patriots was indeed a great honor. Wether it was on a training mission in Taiwan; a B team in ICorp; or Drawer 22, MACSOG; I was proud to be associated with my SF comrades.

Also, I am studying deeply the following subjects: Information Warfare and Effects Based Operations - Network Centric Warfare. I want to learn more about these subjects and give my modest contribution in these matters. I would like to hear from you. Thank you very much for your attention!! José Maria Abreu.

It is the best way I can show my respect, and the honor that is so deserving, for what they did do, what they are doing, and for what they will do, so that I can sleep in a safe bed at night.

A big "AIRBORNE!" salute to the fine men who had served and to the personnel currently on active duty fighting the "War on Terror". It's volunteers like yourselves who have the courage, talent and indominable spirit that keeps America strong and although we got kicked below the belt almost 6 years ago here and hearing our President echoing the words of FDR, "A day that will live in Infamy," that our enemy will realize the quote of Yamamoto, "I fear we have only awakened a sleeping Giant and his reaction will be terrible." to this they shall realize, that our sworn enemy will know hell on earth and if they should make it to "Paradise" and meet with Allah, their god, may they be bloated from bacon fat!

GOOD SITE--SERVED WITH SF FROM 1966-1980: 6TH, 5TH (CCN-67'68), 46TH AND 10TH. My military career started with the 505 Abn Battle Group in Mainz GE 1959-1960. We were selected to aggress the 10 in summer of 60. It did not suprise me to find that most of the old 505ers I remembered ended up in SF. We of the 505 considered ourselves the best and ended up with SF--the BEST of the BEST.

I was briefly a member of the 20th Special Forces Group, 5th Battalion, Maryland Army National Guard from January 1974 to January 1975. I was just wondering if there are any members of that group from 1974 that are listening in. Some names that come to mind are Sgt. Leigh, Sgt.Maj. Thornton, Captain Young, Lt. Reitzler, and Captain Kepler to name a few. I'm aware that Sgt. Bob Savage and Sgt.Maj. Bates have passed away from cancer. It would be great to hear from anyone.

Best wishes to all with whom I served - Georg M.; John Campbell; David C.; "H-Bomb Keyes"; John M.; "Pembo-6": LT Keith "You better shape up"; and the many others I never felt worthy of being in the company of. They, and the many others I served with, are true heroes of whom I am so very proud to have known and had the sublime pleasure of being in the company of. Bill Strong "CPT Ouzo" 1976-1980

Hi All. I am a drop in just looking around for history of the berets and the unique individuals who serve in special forces. I am a video biographer. I record life stories for service men and women to leave for their families to enjoy while gone away from home. It is called "My Hero At Home Video". I can see the bond that is special to those in service with conrades. My history of service is that I was tested and offered assignment in the SSA when entering the US Army. However, got nervous and specialized in records. I missed out on one of the greatest opportunities of my life but wouldn't trade my three daughters and four grandchildren for a day of it. May God watch over all of you and give you daily acknowledgment of your valuable service.

He was always singing bawdy Irish songs and really was a boost to moral wherever he was and a fine soldier. I will always remember him and mourn his passing, as I know the chapter will.

Regarding my earlier request for people to check out the oil painting of Billye 'A'; it seems the guest book isn't printing out the URL section. So, here it is: http://special-forces-memorial.net/Mrs-A/ Billye's oldest son, Mike, says his mom had the painting before she died but that he doesn't know its provenance. His family and all of us are interested to find out if this is the infamous Bien Hoa Club House portrait and anything else about it. I just got a copy of Billy W's Memorial Day SOG jump - what a bunch of guys..

Would also like for David Kirschbaum and Ringo to take a look and contact me re: their statue idea, which seems the best idea yet to honor her memory. There are some new photos of Mrs 'A' from her family, for those who might be interested. The site's under construction but should be done in a week or so.

My father was demolitions during the late 60's in Vietnam. During his 2nd tour, he was shot in the head, and a medic helped get him out. The medic's unit was hit by VC a few days later, and my father does not know if the medic made it out. He won't tell me the name, he says if he's dead, he doesn't want to know. I'm trying to find anyone who knew my father. He would have been a difficult person to forget. I don't know much, but I do know that he was stationed at Fort Bragg, that he was a demolitions expert, and that his poodle would come out with him to the field and sleep in his sleeping bag. If you knew my father, please email me at TheMPsWife@yahoo.com. I hope that one day I can go and tell him that I found his medic.

Hello Special Forces community, I was looking through your website about the U.S. Army Special Forces and I was real impressed by your site. The Special Forces are the elite group of people who serve our country with honor and only a few ever make the cut. Sadly these day's there seems to be many people going around and bragging that they were in the special forces, when most of these bar room braggarts never even served. I know of a person who I have suspected as a wannabee for some time now and I wanted to send this information about him. His name is J.R. Rose from Woodhaven, Michigan. For the past few years, this guy has been going on and on about his tour of duty in Viet Nam as a Green Beret. He obviously has mental problems and needs help. I even checked him out in the National Archieves and he never served in the Army Special Forces. This guy is a obviously a fraud and a nutcase. I hope they create some laws and bust these type of phony characters!

Hi Fellow Green Berets, I need your help and support. I was in the 7th Special Forces group who was given his Green Beret by President Kennedy in 1961. I have been very active all of my life, then out of nowhere I developed pulmonary fibrosis in my lungs and have less than a 25% lung capacity left. My VA here in Dayton, Ohio put me through a year and a half of testing and concluded that I was a good canidate for a lung transplant. My pulmonary physician, Dr. Jeffrey Schnader submitted the transplant request to five VA transplant hospitals and they all turned me down because they think that over age 60 is too old, even though other non-government hospitals transplant single lungs over 65 years old. I want every Special Force Veteran to know that the VA Hospitals in this country are dropping the ball for our medical care for those of us over 60 years old. The VA Hospital has sent me home to die even though Dr. Schnader there said that I am a good canidate for a lung transplant and that I could even go to work again and golf with a tranplant. If I survive this, I want to work for all the Veterans who are dying needlessly because the VA is practicing age discrimination. Please go to my website that a friend set up for me. I would love your comments and letters. Even though I am on oxygen constantly, I still gasp for air. I am getting weaker but I am trying to hold on and fight, for me and all of you who have served your country well and may need a transplant of some kind in the future. Best wishes to all, Jerry Wood RA166-122-62

Thanks to those who let me know that a good friend i was trying to locate, Darrell Redman, had recently passed away. - Darrell Dean Redman, born September 14, 1945, passed away after a brief illness on November 17, 2002, in Bangkok, Thailand. His obituary stated that in 1966 Darrell enlisted in the Armed Forces, becoming a member of the 5th Special Forces Green Berets and ulitmately a member of SOG, intelligence branch of the Green Berets. He served his country from 1966 until 1972, being discharged as a Captain after service in Vietname, Okinawa, and Korea. He received the Bronze Star with Oak Leaf Cluster for bravery, the Silver Star for saving 4 of his fellow soldiers while under fire, and 3 purple hearts for wounds received during his tours in Vietnam. - If anyone knows Darrell and would like to share your memories or know of anything else published about him, please feel free to email me. I know he was in a book or two - i only wish i could track them down. A moment of silence for a great & complicated man that lived life to the fullest! Much love to all those who served. God Bless!!

Looking for a Corporal Duperroy, Corporal Jonathon Duperroy a towed jumper with the mind of a cretan but the courage of a drunk, who executed a feet ass head PLF in all our hearts... Hello, I am Sergeant Miller 3rd Brigade, 3rd ANGLICO. We train fairly hard, but I must say we are the dirtiest, stinkiest, bags of Chesty's buttcheese you have ever seen. 3rd Brigade is out in the field so dog-gone long that our gunny has to blast us down with a fire house to get all the fungus off. The grabbastic bags of extrenuous anal leavings over at 1st MLE occasionally refer to us as the freeballin' fairies because the unorthidox manor in which we modify our battle dress uniforms in the summer heat in JRTC Fort, Polk Lousiania. The motto among this derilict motley crew of pungent airborne wretches is "chonies iz for fonies." Nevertheless, I must reinterate that the Marines of 3rd Anglico and especially 3rd Brigade, are a bunch of smelly, stinky freaks that should not be tampered with other than in the time of war. And in such a time, they should be unleashed like wild, rabbid, gibbons upon the world in order to reap communist soles with unrelentingly barbarousness and without the slightest hint of remorse. Until that day, the president will store us behind a glass case marked: break only during a smelly, sweaty, stinky emergency.

I am looking for an old friend of mine. His name is Leonard Garramone. He has served our country in the Vietnam war and has made a career out of protecting our country. Last I heard from him, he was in Russia and we lost track again. I would like to hear from him and know that he is alright and to get in contact with me. Thank you.

Hey there. I research home equity loans regarding mortgage financing headaches. Home equity loans work even if you have a second mortgage or no home equity . You can even do some debt consolidation too.

He left on a hardship discharge and knew/supported my wife and his daughter(unborn then) at that time. Daughter wants to let him know that she thinks of him and would like to know him. He also has 2 grand-daughters. All live here in Virginia. Any info would be helpful. Been trying to locate him now for 3 years. Thanks.

White Panther, thank you for the "honest" critique of my fellow Americans. I am absolutely certain the world community will be amazed by the ethnic tolerance and understanding which is now sweeping across the Balkans. Serbia, a nation that is most recently noted for such national heroes (or murderers) as Slobodan Milosevic, Radovan Karadzic, and Mladic Ratko, is hardly a model for the new world order. The Serbian Army demonstrated an uncanny ability for raping women and killing old folks. (Now that is a military organization you can be proud of!) Let us not forget the Serbian view of social engineering--ethnic cleansing. Most Americans will tell you America is not perfect. But, we sure look pretty damn good when compared to most of the nations that inhabit this world. Peace.

Green Beret, hmm what should I say. Rambo was a good movie but the Americans are full of judemental, undeserved pride. You bomb countries because of thier politics, your country has boiled up the most uneducated, drunken, racists that any country in the free world could produce. I like the "Honest" americans--and there are not many. I try to be open minded about every country but Americans forbid other "friendly" contacts from other nations, you men and women of the USA, are born alone and will die alone--you refuse anyone's assistance. We must all learn from one another, but you people do not accept this teaching method, there is no kindness, just hostility. That is all. White Panther.

I was hoping that someone out there might be able to help me find some information concerning my father. He passed away this past year. Served out of Fort Benning, GA 1951-53. His name was Lloyd Smith RA 17298558. I am interested in finding out as much about his military past as possible. He didn't say much other than he completed Ranger training and that he was a member of the Green Berets. I would appreciate any help, just email me. And thanks to all those who serve our country, god bless.

Served on a-403 of the 4th Mobile Guerrilla in 67-68 and A402 (2nd Bn 4th MSF (Mike Force)and at the USSpecial Opns command for desert Shield/Storm/Provide comfort. Was lucky enough to serve around some of the true legends of SF: Galen (Pappy) Kittleson, B.T. Collins, Ruben Garcia, Lee Dunlap, Chuck Whittle, Jim Zachary, Dave Blair, "Bugsy" Moran, Rocky Lewis, Jack Godsey and others who all inspired and mentored me. Thanks for the memories and would like to hear from any who served with or around me.

He was assigned to the JFK Warfare Center (10th Group?) prior to going overseas. Jose was from California and had a 2 1/2 year old son named Joseph and lived in Fayetville. Jose had many friends and spent many weekends at Normany & Sicily drop zones. Does anyone know Sue Gansky? Best wishes to all SF Families during the holidays and throughout the coming year.

I was one of the honored support sopldiers to be assigned to a Special Forces battalion. I served from 1995 upto my retirement in 1997 with the finest soldiers known to modern man. As a support soldier, I was nervous at first of being in the "inner-circle" of SF, especially standing next to "tabbers" in daily formations. I soon found that we, the support troops, within a SF battalion were treated with the utmost respect and admiration for our support to the ODA's and Command Staff. As the Senior Counterintelligence Special Agent within the battalion, I was surprised at the amount of respect the Commander, LTC Joseph Andrade, and even the ODA Commanders had in my input to various realwotrld missions. I was totally taken back at the honors the battalion bestowed upon me and retirement party they threw for me. I will NEVER for get those men and the most wonderful part of my career supporting and living within the "Silent Professionals" world. I would love to hear from all that I served with in the 3rd Bn and especially LTC Andrade.

I must say that I am truly moved by the experience of viewing your web site. I was 12 when my father,Willie D. Stephens was K.I.A. in Viet-Nam March 6,1970. He was a member of the 7th and 5th S.F.G. in Ft. Bragg, N.C. He was there in 63,65,67,69. In reality,I only knew my father as just that,...a father. But,being his oldest son,I strive to find as much information as I possibly can about him,as would any son. I know that Special Forces and other group's are very secretive,so I don't expect much,although I will try to learn as much as I possibly am allowed to learn. With the luck I have had finding out anything at all,...I would consider it a Blessing,or even a miracle if anyone would find it within themselves to at least talk with me.

Trying to locate the troops with MOS 05B4S that completed training group in Nov 1970. After training group we were assigned to the 5th Group VN but had to report for more commo training at Ft. Gordon prior to catching up with the 5th. At Nha Trang we went our different ways and rarely kept in contact until no contact at all. Some of the last names I remember are, Brown, Skergen, Fettler, Mac Phail, Terry, Spencer, Overton, Oliver, Valentine, Cereceres, and a few others whose names I don't recall. Peter Bell was also a member of this group but Pete is no longer with us, God bless his soul.

I have been looking for information online, and this was the first site I could find that had any detail. I wish more people in the military took time to make site's as useful as your's. It makes the world of difference to girlfriends and wives like me when we have questions or concerns. If there is anyone who would like to chat with me about what I will soon be going through as his girlfriend - possibly wife later in life, please feel free to e-mail me anytime. Again, thank you for all the useful information I found on you're site.

My father was Staff Sgt. Darryl Westbrooks. He served with the Rangers, then the 7th group, then the 5th group. My dream is to become a green beret but I'm only 17. I came to this website looking for pictures and things. MSNBC.com had a section on spec. forces but they failed to mention the real Special Forces in their article. I just e-mailed them to tell them about all the training the green berets go through and all the times they have proved theirself in battle, and I urged them to add y'all to their list. If anyone has pictures please email them to me (people, flashes, insignias, etc.) It would be appreciated highly.

My name is Dwayne Hilton And I am writing to any one that can help me. My Story is Brief my dad Carl Hilton who is (decease now) was a former Green Beret around 1967 and did two tours of duty Korea and Viet Nam . When I was a small fella growing up I used to love to see him in that uniform with the Beret on. But what I am trying to replace is this Bronze Statue of a Green Beret Soldier and the Beret it self my dad was the type of person that no matter where he went in the USA He knew somebody and somebody knew him I remember as us three kids we used to just shake our heads and say man he knows them to. He was always the type to help others first. I have Articles that say he was a hero by leading his squad through the swamps and jungle's and me knowing him I can believe that. So I'm pretty confident that he has some friends out there that can help me. I have a special corner in the house that's kind of a shrine. I miss my father very much I didn't get a chance to say goodbye we were in different states when he passed at the young age of 51years old. please help if possible Dwayne E Hilton

My unlce (Paul Scott)was in SF. Not for sure what years possibly between ??-84. He was in vietnam in 68' the year I was born. My dad died when I was four so he has basically adopted me ever since. What I'm wanting to do is get copies of any pictures anyone may have of him during his army career. He probably would still be in if it wasnt for a night jump in Colorado that broke his leg. He lives in Texas now still serving, just as a police officer(14yrs). I would also like to hear any stories you may have about him (funny or serious). thanks K P Breton

Perhaps I am exagerating, but famous Berlin tunnel was most likely compromised by higher than normal underground temperature which resukted in melting snow outside.

Started checking out all the SFer sites a few months ago, had no idea this was all here! Just found Special Forces search eng. WOW,Fantastic,and it is non profit.(?) Keep up the good work. Last servered on Team A-104 camp ARO & HaThanh, Jan '65 to Dec '65. That was in I Corp, Demo-man Spc 5. Got a phone call from a guy named Sherman one day, he asked me to send my team picture for some book he sells, E-mailed instead with complete list of team members and their skills. He does not list the correct members or their right job. Not sure how good his info is on other teams? But that is how I found out about all of the sites. Sherman, thanks for the call even if you don't use the info. Found out my team XO, Lt Estep, latter was Lt Col Estep of the 1st Special Forces, A-Company Commander 1st Battalion (1984).On the return of the 1st to Okinawa.

BOY! AM I ENTHUSIASTIC!! You probably don't know my Dutch name or even the nickname, "K-2", but I held some ambush team member's hand via whispers into my AC-47's FoxMike radio one night in 1969 near the Angel's Wing & Nui Ba Den! He couldn't talk because the VC campfire was so close & we couldn't shoot because we never could find HIM under the jungle canopy! We dropped plenty of ground flares trying to get an "offset" from them to him so we could hose Charlie and not have a short round! He couldn't spot them &, Dammit, we never COULD fix his exact location, but we hung around for 3-4 hours til we were running out of gas & had to RTB. Charlie hunkered down while he heard us! That was my last month in Spookies after 5 months in the Delta outta Binh Thuy & Can Tho! Well, guess what guys? I found my Montagnard bracelets (my last 6 months were at Pleiku with EC-47's, elint to Army arty, & off-duty civic actions) & I'm looking for my SpecOps coins, now, to head for the clubs at MacDill -- after 15 years trying to finish Grad School at FSU & find a REAL job, I've about got one secured as a Guidance Counselor at MacDill's Base Education Office! And I'm so happy about it, I could almost spit! So give me a couple months, & any snake-eaters out there who want to come in from the boonies to get a GI Bill education & some "civilization" (HA!) -- I promise you my best shot at a #1 Deal, GI! (No Ba-Muoi-Ba needed in trade.) For you younger snake-eaters, I was over Grenada in AC-130 Spectres & "somewhere" over Central America at one time, too! (Yes, I WAS a lifer -- even raised as an Army-AF "brat"!) So YOU can learn to pass for "civilized," too -- come visit ol' "K-2" at MacDill's Education Office & we'll see what we can do! Has anyone got a recording of "Ghostriders in the Sky"? ANY TIME, ANY PLACE! CHAO! K-2's going off the Net!

I'd like to correct statement. My dad JOHN C. SANUT informed me he was NOT a green beret, SO I'D LIKE TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, WE WROTE ME THE FOLLOWING TO HELP ME UNDERSTAND HOW HE CAME TO SF. He gave me the following info:my dad wrote:>> Do you recall the party at The Red Mouse (Tacoma WA prior to departure to Nam?) A special thanks to Detachment A-69 (Tacoma, Washington....June 1970) Just reviewing this website sent by my daughter. Many of those that was at CCC..... I've never seen or heard of again....since leaving Kontum. Damn it's been 31 years!!!!! Memory fails me, specially since transferring into CCC from Pleiku (C-team). Many of the names are now forgotten (specially since we used code names)....you know what I mean. Hey guy I got your e-mail address and will definitely be in touch. For the "SF" that lived, served and died....I owe an apology. My daughter "knew" I served with the SF and assumed I was a "Green Beret". Let me explain. I left the 82nd Airborne in 1969, and was assigned as a candy-striper to the 3rd SF (Sig CO) under Chief Leo Butcher. After the 3rd was de-activated, I was re-assigned to the 7th SF under Chief Meadows. In June 1970 was re-assigned to the 5th at Nha Trang Chief John C Martin (now deceased....knew him since October 1965) ...then sent to Pleiku C-Team, under Chief Donald Taylor. Under Chief Taylor I was responsible for all communications repairs, B-23, B-24, including the A Camps. 1SG Alford was C-Team 1SG. I was not in-country long enough to return when the 5th's colors was returned and was further assigned to SOA CCC at Kontum....there I remained until I was rotated back to Ft Riley....Gen Flanagan was Post Commander and CSM Carlos Leal (I heard but cannot verify that he (CSM Leal)died in Thailand during a HALO). CSM Leal had MSG Roy Benavidez check with the Replacement Detachment...daily. All those that came into Ft Riley (from the SF) were taken directly to CSM Leal....who gave us a job......yep there was a teamhouse there too. In 1972 I was able to return to Ft Bragg (under some kind of 82nd Airborne call-up, that would not allow transfers back to Smoke Bomb Hill.) Unlike many wannabe's.... I do not claim to be a Green Beret.....however I did serve with and in support of the many that were in and around Plieku and Kontum. Toby I still think of Cpt Krupa quite often.....may he RIP. .....a copy of this e-mail will be added to the guestbook mentioned.SUBMITTED TO CORRECT ERROR for john c. sanut by his daughter marisa

My Dad was a "Green Beret" his name is JOHN C. SANUT, he retired in 1984 after 20 years or so. I wanted as a tribute to him find anyone that served with him. He was in Communications Chief at one time I believe. He was stationed at Ft.Campbell 1966 (where I was born), Ft Bragg 1970, Ft. Riley, Mainz Germany, finally at Ft Hood. My memories of my Dad are still with me along with all the things I learned from him. I will come back and add any info else I learn about him. He was 17 when he went in I found a picture of him with his Airborne #132 on his helmet. He comes from the Stockton, California area. please direct any questions to me his adoring daughter who is proud of her father. De Opresso Libre

I am looking to talk with anyone who served with Major George Quamo in Viet Nam. I know he was reported missing in 1968 and his body was recovered in 1974. I know he was killed in a plane crash and that he participated in the Special Forces rescue at Lang Vei in 1968. In the various web tributes to Special Forces personnel who > served at Lang Vei, it mentions Quamo rounding up a group of Special Forces commando volunteers from the MACV-SOG base at Khe Sanh and leading an "heroic" reinforcing rescue that allowed the Lang Vei defenders to evacuate.  Is there any person, or a place where I could find out more about Major Quamo, I would greatly appreciate it.

About a week before I retired in December I learned that my friend J.D. Callahan (Ret. SGM) had died suddenly at his home in Florida. It struck me because I had seen Joe only one week before in my office as he was leaving on another tdy. Joe, always a prankster had stopped by to harass me about being an old pecker-checker and I had come back with the standard line of him being my best live training aid for all venereal diseases known to man....... As I reflect on our times together I think back to 1966 when J.D. and Bata Boots Bennet flew into Texas with a C-119 full of T-10 parachutes to jump the SF Medic classes; and then go on to a later time when we both were in Northern Virginia still doing "God's work" after retiring from SF. Later as we were both in Africa and Central America in the 80s and 90s supporting the locals, Joe's sense of humor and field knowledge saw us through some tough times. Joe was always the consummate professional and most likely one of the best SF Commo men that I have had the pleasure of knowing.......... His wife recently told my wife and I that "Joe said he had done everything in life that he wanted to do." I am sure that he did and is now making commo under tough conditions with old equipment and hearing us all five-by.

I want to correct a typo I made in my previous note this evening regarding trying to locate William C. Bennett. The date of Operation Just Cause was December 20, 1989 -- not 1999 as stated.

I am trying to locate William C. Bennett, a former Special Forces officer who served at the U.S. Southern Command (J3/Special Operations) from 1989-1991. At that time he was a lieutenant colonel, US Army. I am trying to locate him to secure his permission to reprint on my homepage an article he wrote on Operation Just Cause (the invasion of Panama, December 20, 1999) which he copyrighted and published in Military Review in 1991. I was a civilian press officer at the Southern Command at Quarry Heights, Panama, 1985-1997 and the same for SouthCom's Army component in Panama 1975-1985. After leaving a similar note on another SF Guestbook, I was told Bennett is a member of the SFA Chapter LX in Florida. I tried to contact him at the email address given on the Chapter’s directory of members. No response to date. I would appreciate anyone knowing him to pass on my note.

I'm pleased to announce the establishment of The Master Sergeant David K. Thuma Memorial Scholarship with Regents College. The scholarship honors a US Army Special Forces soldier who set the standard for all who knew him, and for those who follow. As a former Command Sergeant Major of the 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne), I was fortunate enough to have Dave as one of my team sergeants and was deeply saddened by his untimely death while training in Kenya, Africa in 1998. He was an extraordinary man among extraordinary men who was recently honored with the naming of our Special Forces NCO Academy after him. As always, thank you for your service to the nation, and if you're ever in El Paso, please look us up. DE OPPRESSO LIBER!

I was in the following SF units Training Group from Sept. 1967-Sept 1968 7th SFG Sept 1968-April 1969 46th SF Co. April 1969-April 1970 5th SFG (CCC) April 1970-April 1971 (About half way through the 5th went back to the states and we became a MACV unit with black baseball hats 8th SFG April 1971 until it became Co. D 7th SF-left Panama in August 1973 for OCS at ft. Benning Spent the next 13 years in the Field Artillery. Been doing Training Management and development in the Aerospace and Automobile industry since. Not much military around Troy. It is amazing that when you get away from a military base how little people know and comprehend what members of the Armed Services have done for this country. I will say that many of the little town around here do have Memorial Day Parades. Town halls all have monuments to their war dead. Michigan really bleed during the Civil War. Appreciation for the military in this area has increased over the last 10 years. I think it is because of the veterian groups are making their presence known. Anyway great website. I will recommend it. Mike Rose Special Forces Medic

Dear Sirs, My name is Jeffrey Cleland and I am trying to get in touch with Sgt. (R) Mark Francis Robertson my wife's father. He was stationed in Myrtle Beach, SC during the late 60's and then transferred to Okinawa. When my wife last contacted him he was living in the Chicago area. His daughter, Beth, and granddaughter, Hannah, need to contact him and would very much like to have him in their lives. We have recently learned the true circumstances that led him to leave. We also have been subjected to some of the same treatment that he received from his ex-wife's family and we all understand why he left. Beth has gone through a series of painful and very traumatic steps to break the cycle of hatred and bigotry that Sgt. Robertson was victimized by. She now has no family outside our home. When Sgt. Robertson last visited Beth he gave his beret to her. Although that was taken from her she has never lost the feelings of love toward her father or the desire to be reunited with him.

To all members of SFA Chapter LX - your Area of Operations was a pleasure to visit from 15 to 20 May 2000. I hope that when any Special Forces Assoc. member comes to the 54th SFA AO we can make life as fun, productive and hospitable as you have made you s for me. Phil King is indeed the finest, most reliable and entertaining Aide de Camp any Flag Rank Officer could ask for, much less a civilian SF enthusiast could hope to find. Being able to sit with, absorb wisdom from, and be of some service to CMOH Franklin “Doug” Miller was a high point in my association with the Green Berets. My friend and mentor, General William Yarborough, was delighted with the reception he found waiting for him from the SFA Chap 60 when he came to Tampa on the 17th of May to receive the Bull Simons Memorial Award and Phil provided a most gracious welcome to your SFOB. Please do not hesitate to call me personally  whenever you come to the 54th SFA AO which I hope will be the Y2K convention in Boston (July 1-4 . Thank You Chapter LX for your Hospitality.

I have a photo of Dick Meadows and me taken in aug 1954. We were in the military mountaineering school, Camp Carson Co. The photo was taken in the Wind River Wilderness area at the foot of Gannet peak in Wyoming. We were climbing buddies on the glaciers. Pretty good picture of Dick. Would Mrs. Meadows like a copy of the photo? ( Or the chapter?) If so send me a mailing address. Sincerely CC Drumheller

Hey Guys, this site is really outstanding. Good graphics, good sound, and good format. Very simple, yet very interesting, and easy to read and follow. BTW, if C/60 is the closest Chapter to Bradenton, you may have a new member after the first of the year, as I will more then likely be returning "home" around that time. I will be in the AO after SOAR XII...........JimR Sends w/TLC

Chapter LX has always been a leading innovator where chapters within SFA are concerned. You are one of the first to come out with a web site that is both interesting, informative, and pleasing to the eye. I know when you get the new one put together, Earl McMillan will have done you proud. De Oppresso Liber!

How many members does your SFA Chapter have? I've thinking of joining; What's the cost? Back in the "year 1" I was a member of the Decade club. I'm looking for members of CCC, CCN, & CCS from '68 - '69. I've been maintaining a low profile for 30 years and now I want to connect with individuals who shared the SF/'yard experience before, during, & after "the big Tet".
