Would anyone from "A" Co. that was there happen to know who called in arty from the 2/32nd out at the French Fort? Somebody put an 8 incher dead on top of us. Rumor has it that some "Lurps" (not ours) called it in (ha)! Just curious. Oh yeah did any of you "alphagators" happen to bring my foot home as a souvenier(ha)? I gotta tell ya, if "war is hell", then we walked through one to get to our little police action!!

While men of 3-22 fought valiently against the attacking enemy, men of 2-22 (Mech) drove through the night to come to their aid. No greater love has any man...... God bless those who gave their lives that night and God bless those who still wear the scars and memories of that battle. Deeds not Words!

Comments: Vietnam veterans of 1-22 Infantry - I am looking for stories about the actions of 1-22 Infantry from our arrival in Vietnam on 6 Aug 66 until you came home in January 1972. I have a pretty good idea what went on between August 1966 and early July 1967 since I was with the unit then but after that period, I am very hazy. Specifically, I am looking for information about a battle at Chu Moor Mountain in May 1968 to help one of our buddies (John Pastrick, A/1-22). Also, I would like to know the story about the black scarves the battalion wore, at least in 1968 and 1969. We didn't wear them when I was with the unit and I just heard about them when talking with John Pastrick. If you have any stories to tell about any of the exploits of 1-22 in Vietnam, I would love to hear them. You can send them via email at bob224@mindspring.com or you can mail them to me at PO Box 682222, Marietta, GA 30068. With your permission, I will include some of them in a future newsletter. Let me hear from you, I want to build as complete a history of our battalion as possible. Deeds not Words! Bob Babcock, president, 22nd Infantry Regiment Society. P.S. You 2-22 and 3-22 guys, keep your stories coming. You are doing a much better job than my 1-22 buddies. And, we still need more stories from all our WWII vets (and Cold War and current units).

For details on that battle, go to the Battles and Events tab on our home page and read about it. The men of the 22nd Infantry, and the other units, proved they are men of Deeds not Words as they handed the NVA a devastating defeat on that day 32 years ago.

I was at Cu Chi, Dau Tang(I will never forget being pinned down in those rubber plantations),FSB Buell and Nui Bau Den. I am sure that I have forgotten a location or two, what with eagle flights everyday or convoys or riding with a mech unit, I've kind of lost track. My life has had its ups and downs since then, but compared with Vietnam it's been gravy. I hope I can catch up with some of the old gang. If you ever cracked open a claymore to get the C4 to heat up your ham and motherf-----s, I'd like to hear from you.

Comments: I served with the 2/22nd from basic training at Fort Lewis (12/65) until I was infused into the 9th med (5/67?), in Vietnam. I seen the pictures taken by Ron Picardi. There was a guy we called "Pic" (That was what he wore on his name tag) who was assigned to my platoon from 3rd bde photography. I was a medic attached to A co. Is this the same Pic? I also saw the news artical (undated) about finding the vietcong radio. I was with a squad of A. 2/22 when we found a supply cache and radio around Tet in 1967. If this is the same incident, it doesn't mention that we also found some "mighty fine wine" bottled in Hanoi. I thought we turned most of it in. Some friends and I shared a bottle. I'm glad we did. A couple of them were killed the next day. Does anyone know Rich Farrell or remember Bill Lambert. They were also medics. I wish I could remember more names.

All of you who served with the 2nd Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment should stop on this day and reflect back on the great times and great friends you made while part of Triple Deuce. And, of course, think about those comrades who paid the ultimate sacrifice. Today is a great day to pick up the phone and call that long lost buddy that you have been going to call for the past several years. Just do it - Deeds not Words!!

"The troops were issued gray campaign hats and waterproof pith helmets - with a hood attached that covered the back of the neck and shoulders. Each man received a pair of heavy campaign trousers - two pairs of army boots and leggings - two blue woolen shirts - and a pair of gauntlet-type buckskin gloves." On January 31st, the Regiment arrived in San Francisco and boarded the steamers 'Senator' and 'Ohio' - destination the Philippines to once again go into combat. Keep checking our web page to see events from our Regimental history as we fought 100 years ago in the Philippine Insurrection. Deeds not Words!

Comments: My first combat operation was with 2/22 - Triple Duece and FULLBACK in Sept. '67. As a 3 month old "MI" 2LT from Infantry OCS assigned as the first Phoenix Program Advisor for Tri Tam District - Dau Tieng, I volunteered to "support" FULLBACK during a cardon and search operation of Village 2 in the Michelin Plantation. At the edge of the Michelin, the Bn S-3 found me on top of a M-113 and ordered me and my "god damn" Vietnamese to get down and take point. So much for observing! Luckily, only a mine, one sniper and one accidental discharge slowed our operation. I believe that this was also the first operation for a new Bn Cdr. Due to increased VC activity in Fall '67, the Recon Plt. from the 2/12 (not sure!) was assigned to the MACV District and merged with my PRU to form a Combined Reconnaissance & Intelligence Platoon (CRIP) let by 1Lt Oosterhuise "Double OO" and advised by me. The CRIP worked on special assignment for the Dep Cdr, 3rd Bde and functioned as an intelligence/recon and quick reaction force. We survived the VC/NVA buildup in Fall '67 that led to Tet, multiple ground attacks at the District Hqs and multiple daily mortar attacks subsequent to Tet. 1LT "OO", a CPT from 2/22, a MAJ from the 3/4 CAV, and the Dep Bde Cdr were all wounded during their response to an internal insurrection and planned assinations of key District Officers and Americans in April '68. I later served as 25th Division Counterintelligence Officer and S-2, 1st Brigade (Lancer) in '75 - '78. Remember those who went before! I currently work for NASA Ames and maintain the Emergency Services Web Site... I look forward to hearing more about the legacy.

After a few months in Texas, I got orders for Nam. I landed in Camrahn Bay in August 1969. Did the two weeks in-country training and transfered to Cu Chi. ThereI was convoyed to FS Woods III as a scout squad leader for HHC, 2/22, Recon. After six months, I volunteered(normally you NEVER volunteer for anything in the Army) for the HHC, 2/22, Flame Platoon. Our favorite song was "Fire" by Arther Brown.On July 21, 1970, I ETS in Oakland, CA, to be released to the real WORLD. What a change it was and when I was pissed off with someone...I didn't have my weapon. Lucky for that person. But, I've adjusted a few months later and all's well.

I am trying to put KIA descriptions on the TheVirtual Wall for all of the guys I knew for historic archives. Try pulling up the virtual wall. It will take alot out of you just reading the stories people put in about our fallen friends. I feel dismay and hurt when I see no one putting in comments about the 25th. These guys deserve the recognition rather than just being a name etched on a granite face in DC. Help, Help help!

This is my first computer and my first experience at using e-mail and the web. Daddy is spending his Christmas teaching me and his grandaughter how to use this thing. Of course he took us right to your beautiful page. If my writing sounds similar to his, that's because he tells us what to write. Thanks to all of you for keeping him safe in Vietnam and sending him back home to us. Thanks for being such great Americans! (He didn't tell me to say that) Have some very happy holidays.

Comments: I am the son of a WWII vet (Robert A. Pizzano WWII TCpl 4th Div G-Company). I attended the Gettysburg Convention in October of 1997. I must say I came away feeling the pride that all of you, who fought for our freedom, has in connection with this wonderful organization. In brief, my father always wanted to know what happened to his foxhole buddy in April of 1945. A book listing casualties was at the convention and listed his buddy as WIA. I got a peek at the entry and noted the middle initial. Without my father's knowledge, I searched the wonderful internet for all possible matches. The first one I tried to contact, was THE Calvin O. Petty, his foxhole buddy. I asked if it would be ok to have my father contact him and he agreed. When I went home that November night (3 weeks after the convention), I called Calvin, handed the phone to my father and said, "It's for you." My father had not spoken to him since approximately April 18, 1945. My father always wanted to know what ever happened to him. Now he does. They exchanged photos and some talk. You see, 'Deeds not Words', stuck in my mind, and now my father has peace of mind with a part of his past. Unfortunately, my ultimate goal of getting the two of them to visit each other may never come to fruition. We live in Rockville, and Calvin lives in Kentucky. Both are not up to traveling the distance. None-the-less, thanks again to all of you who fought for our freedom and made my life possible.

Comments: 54 years ago - December 3, 1944 - the 22nd Infantry Regiment completed their 18 day battle in the Hurtgen Forest and were relieved by the 83rd Infantry Division. COL (Ret) Earl "Lum" Edwards, Regimental Operations officer, wrote the following in the afterword of Rob Rush's book, "Paschendale with Tree Bursts" - "As memories flood back to me of this bloody stretch of combat in WWII, I am filled with pride as well as sadness. There is pride in the way the officers and men of the 22nd Infantry performed their duties in one of the most confusing and difficult battles of my experience. I do not remember another time or place that gave us a greater challenge to our courage and combat proficiency. The deep, dark, foreboding forest; the cold, grim, wintry weather and the rugged nature of the terrain all combined to make every task doubly difficult. Poor visibility as well as the impassable road net made supply, fire support and evacuation of the wounded a nightmare. All of these things gave a great advantage to the defender. There is sadness in the way so many heroic soldiers died under such horrible conditions and sadness, too, in the fact that this wasn't some great and exhilarating victory destined for a full page in the history books. It was just another small part in the jigsaw puzzle that had to be put in place to complete the picture - just another brushmark in the bloody tapestry of war. I believe that 'Paschendale with Tree Bursts' says it all. The author properly points out that while a steady stream of replacements kept the numbers up, the erosion in the ranks of experienced leaders, commissioned as well as non-commissioned, led gradually to the virtual destruction of a great Regiment. I had been with the Regiment since 1940 and knew just about everyone. I remember standing on the side of the road going into the Hurtgen Forest and being waved at by soldiers from every truck. When we left the Hurtgen, I again stood on the side of the road; but this time there were not as many trucks and very few soldiers waving. Everyone else was a casualty. I still flinch at the memory of those young kids being led up the dark roads at night to their units, many being killed or wounded on the way. Those that made it up, we put in a foxhole and whispered where their squad mates in other foxholes were and not to move from their holes until morning. They had no time to learn who their squad members or squad leaders were before being put into the crucible of combat. The author also brings up the question of the huge price paid for such a modest gain. I could not then, nor can I now answer that question. I can only hope that it was necessary when I remember all those, known and unknown, that did not come home with us as a result of this tragic episode." ..... Deeds not Words! Let us never forget our Regiment's bloodiest battle - the Hurtgen Forest in 1944.....

Comments: 54 Years Ago - November 27, 1944 - Macario Garcia, B/1-22 earned the Medal of Honor while fighting in the Hurtgen Forest. We must never forget the sacrifices made by PFC Garcia and all the other men of the 22nd Infantry Regiment who fought through the sixteen days of hell in the Hurtgen Forest - the bloodiest battle of our history. Look at the Medal of Honor tab on our home page to read the Medal of Honor citation about Macario Garcia. MG John Ruggles told me that President Truman, when he was putting the Medal of Honor around Garcia's neck after the war, said, "I would rather earn this than be President." Macario Garcia was truly a man of "Deeds not Words".

He was an "old" guy, about 25, great sense of humor. He was from Maplewood, NJ, and my best friend for many years in civilian life. He enlisted and went to Nam to 'see what it was all about' because I had done two tours there ('65-'67). Since he was there such a short time, I don't expect to find anybody who remembers him, but I do hope to find someone who might remember what went down that day. I operated in western III Corps for 19 months with ASA, and know the area pretty well. If anyone can steer me toward After Action Reports, Staff Duty Logs, Lessons Learned, or whatever concerning your actions on that date, it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. I've been living with this a long time.

Overcoming German resistance and miserable weather, the Regiment attacked relentlessly through the Hurtgen Forest against the dug in German positions and overcame the fierce artillery that burst in the trees above them. Casualties in the line companies averaged over 250% but the men continued the attack and broke through the Hurtgen Forest and claimed their objective. Macario Garcia, B/1-22 earned the Medal of Honor for his actions in the Hurtgen. We salute those who fought that battle. I encourage each of you to reflect on those who suffered life changing wounds or were killed during this battle. We will be forever indebted to you. Deeds not Words!

Comments: Today, November 7, is the 90th birthday of our Honorary Regimental Colonel, MG (Ret) John Ruggles. Born in Vermont, MG Ruggles graduated from West Point in 1931. He landed on D-Day as Executive Officer of the 22nd Infantry Regiment and stayed in that position until he took over command of the Regiment on March 1, 1945. He remained in command of the Regiment until it was temporarily deactivated in 1946 at Camp Butner, NC. His final job before retiring from the Army was as CG of the 1st Infantry Division, the same unit he had first joined as a young LT in 1931. If you would like to pass on birthday congratulations to MG Ruggles on this significant day in his life, please send an e-mail to Gary Krek, our web administrator (hhc222mi@inficad.com) and he will insure it gets to MG Ruggles at the dinner meeting of the Arizona chapter of the National 4th Infantry Division Assn on next Saturday, November 14.

Comments: 32 years ago - November 1, 1966 - the 22nd Infantry Regiment started the first of many large operations against the North Vietnamese as the 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment started Operation Paul Revere IV in the jungles of the central highlands along the Cambodian border. Over the next five years, the 22nd Infantry Regiment distinguished itself as men of "Deeds not Words" as they effectively served our country both in the central highlands and in the area around Cu Chi and Dau Tieng. If you served either as a member of the 22nd Infantry Regiment, or served in support of the 22nd Infantry Regiment in Vietnam, we would like to hear from you and have you join our Society.

Report says 1 MOH, 6 Silver Stars, 15 Bronze Stars, 7 ACM. I was not in combat arms so this was a very significant day in my life. Since there is so little mentioned about this battle (it isn't even named) was this commonplace for you in the infantry? You have my everlasting respect and gratitude.

Comments: 54 Years Ago Today - August 25, 1944 - Following the men of the 12th Infantry Regiment, the 22nd Infantry Regiment, as part of the US 4th Infantry Division, participated in the liberation of Paris in WWII. Those veterans who participated in that memorable liberation day will never forget the welcome they received by the grateful citizens of Paris. The respite was brief, however, as the Regiment continued the attack against the retreating Germans and seventeen days later became the first Allied troops to invade German soil. Deeds not Words!

Comments: Am in search of any one who might have know my father, Glenn M. Smith from Fennville, MI. He may have been living in Coloma, MI at the time though. His organization was Hq Co 22 Inn Regt 4 Div. during WWII between the yrs. 1945 & 48, and it looks like his officer at the time of enlistment was 1st Lt. S.M. Roland and the officer at the time of discharge was S. J. Owens, Major Inf. I would really like to get a roster listing his company while he was in. Dad passed away on Feb. 26, 1996. I have been very interested in finding out what I can about his part in the millitary. I am doing some genealogy research on our family and want to put as much in about him as I can possibly find out. Even if you have any info regarding his company I would greatly appreciate the help. I really don't know where to start digging.I appreciate your time and consideration in this matter. May God richly bless and take care of you all.Janell (Smith) Macias

Comments: Great web site. Keep up the good work. I proudly served as the 3rd Gun Chief C/6 29th Arty from 8/ 65, Fort Lewis, WA then in RVN until 9/67. Myself and John Kaye are looking for members who were part of the Fort Lewis/RVN contingent for the purpose of establishing a special 6/29 FA "Spotswood Dewitt" chapter and reunion group. So far we have found all the officers and several dozen NCO and EM comrades, with more being found everyday. By this time next year we hope to be at least 400 strong. If you are a comrade, please contact me so we, 6/29FA can sign you up and hopefully help us find the others. Thanks, Can Do!!

Comments: I am wanting to speak to anyone who served in the 22nd regiment from 1942-46 who might have known my uncle, Grady "Woody" Woodfin Elliott. He was born in 1915, deceased in 1985. He was born in Dawsonville, Ga., raised in Cartersville, Ga. I would appreciate any information about him or the regiments service during WWII, in particular the Battle of the Bulge. He was MIA twice, and wounded once. I am in posession of his Purple Heart, and want to know some of the expierence behind it. When he was alive I was too young to know what it all meant, and am trying to understand. Thank you
