Comments: ATTENTION TO ALL: Gary Krek, our webmaster suffered a mild stroke on Friday. He's doing fine, but needless to say - quite a scare. Currently, he's going through some physical therapy for his speech and left arm. He was just able to start that today. Hopefully, he'll be able to eat something solid tomorrow; They've had him on nothing by mouth and he's really getting ornery because of it. He's in Maryvale Hospital, room 647. The address is: 5102 W. Campbell, Phoenix, AZ 85031. The phone # 623-848-5000. You can e-mail him at: hhc222mi@inficad.com - evidently he has a laptop and will have at the hospital soon. I'm really proud of his progress so far, but keep him in your prayers. Love to all, Bill and Patti

Comments: 55 years ago - November 27, 1944 - PFC Macario Garcia, B/1-22, earned the Medal of Honor while fighting in the Hurtgen Forest. For the complete writeup on Garcia's heroics, look on the WWII Medal of Honor page on the 4th Infantry Division Association web page at www.4thinfantry.org. When President Truman awarded him the Medal of Honor in a ceremony after the war, COL John Ruggles, Regimental Commander, heard Truman say to Garcia, "I would rather earn this Medal than be President of the United States."

Comments: I am looking for anyone who might have known John Edward Nelson. John was a member of Company C, 2nd Battalion 22nd Infantry, 25th Infantry Division and was sent to South Vietnam on December 19, 1967. He was killed in Binh Duong Province on April 13, 1968. My mom was very young when she became pregnant with me back in October 1967 and she can only remember John's name and where he is from. I am trying to find someone who might be able to tell me if John went through any training at Ft. Sill in Lawton Oklahoma before being sent to Vietnam. There is a good chance that John is my father and all I need to know is this information. Please help me if you can, Thank You.

In those two years, over 32,000 visits have been made to this web page - an average of over 1300 per month. The reunions that have happened, the lost buddies found, the information passed on about a lost loved one, and the historical information about our Regiment that Gary has made available for all of us is priceless. We all owe Gary Krek a big "Thank You" for doing such a great job for so many of us. Not only is there great information on this web page, the quality of the way it is presented is second to none. Gary obviously is a man who follows our Regimental motto of "Deeds not Words!"

Comments: I served with A CO 4th BN 22nd Infantry (COHORT), of the 25th Infantry Division fro August 1986 to Oct 1987. Our Battalion was formed with guys that enlisted from all over the country and went to Basic and Infantry school as a group and stayed together as a Battalion until their enlistments were up. I served as a Squad Leader in the first Platoon. It was a very challenging experience to train and mold that unit but it worked out well. The Battalion was one of the finest in the division and the Army!! I am retired now and have 2 sons in the Army. I would enjoy hearing from some of the guys that served with 4/22 from that era or any of the guys that served with any of the other COHORT units, it was an experience I will never forget!!

Also: I was just reviewing the Books/PX page and noticed that Close Quarters by Larry Heinneman is not listed. Having read it more than once, I'm sure that it's based upon the Triple Deuce, although he calls his unit the 'Triple Trey' (3/33). In his book he describes what is surely the Battle of Soui Tre. I may be mistaken about this, but the book is a great read. I'm still looking for Rufus Dudley from Tallahassee, FL. Thanks to those of you who e-mailed me names of Dudleys in Bristol, FL and Mobile, AL, but I found that neither of these gents is our Rufus.

I'm trying to locate Bill Rabbit, Roy White, and Rufus Dudley, all of whom were in the second platoon during the summer of 1967. I envy those of you who were able to attend the reunion in Dallas. I'm gonna be in Atlantic City next year, for sure. Best regards to Bill Allison, John Eberwine, and Norm Nishikubo for your great work in getting so many of us back together. Also, Id like to locate anyone who tranferred to the Triple Deuce in July '67 from the 1st Bn (Mech), 5th Infantry in Cu Chi as part of the "infusion program". Several dozen of us who had a few months experience in the field with 1/5 were transferred to 2/22 so that there would be more seasoned men available to carry on when the "originals" who arrived en masse in Sept.'66 derosed at the same time in Sept.'67. We had to go through the "new guy" treatment all over again. Red Dodd (R.I.P.) was one of us. If you were part of that program, or know of anyone who was, please let me know. Thanks.

Looking forward to seeing him in Atlantic City in 2000.

At the 4th 1/22 I was a wheel vehicle mechanic (63b20) and also ran convoys as necessary. I also spent time at a firebase I believe was called alpha to provide guard duty while the rest of the unit was in the field. I would like to hear from the guys I served with. This is a nice site.

Comments: 55 years ago - August 25, 1944 - troops of the 22nd Infantry Regiment followed the leading 12th Infantry Regiment and the French 2nd Armored Division as the first Allied troops to liberate Paris after years of Nazi occupation. Riding through Paris on trucks, the 22nd Infantrymen were treated like heroes by the liberated Parisians. Unable to rest and enjoy the celebration, the 22nd Infantry Regiment continued through Paris and continued the attack in pursuit of the retreating Nazi army. But those who were there will never forget their participation in that historic event. Stories from many of our vets who were there that day are included in the August 1998 issue of the 22nd Infantry Regiment Society newsletter. I would still like to have more Paris stories from others who were there 55 years ago. Deeds not Words!

Comments: August 6th, a great day. I remember leaving the USNS Walker on that day in 1966, Qui Nhon harbor, boarding the LCMs and heading for the beach where we were picked up and trucked through Pleiku to our new home, a little bit of high ground, in the middle of nowhere. We set up a perimeter with nothing more than our small arms, radios, but no air support frequency. All of us were apprehensive and realized Charlie was out there. After setting up positions, checking the line, and trying to sleep, came the rain and the uncertainty. We "spent" many rounds that night, firing at whatever was or was not out there. We were taking no chances and no prisoners. I was a city kid from Chicago, responsible for the lives of 45 of America's best, suddenly living in some foreign land and looking for guidance. That was the first night in Vietnam for my platoon, the 4.2" mortar platoon, 1/22 Inf., 4th ID. Scary, and the beginning of one hell of an adventure. I must also say that August 6th would be my daughters birthday--1974. August 6th, a day of many memories. Deeds not Words, Welcome home.

Comments: 33 Years ago - August 6, 1966 - men of 1-22 Infantry and 1-12 Infantry came ashore as lead elements of the 4th Infantry to arrive in Vietnam (4th Engineers and advance party had arrived in July 1966). After getting off the ship at Qui Nhon, we immediately boarded C130s and were taking responsibility for the perimeter of what 4th Inf Div soldiers for the next few years would know as Camp Enari - then just an open plain surrounded by jungles - as dusk settled in. Intelligence reports indicated a strong likelihood of an NVA attack that night - but after a night of monsoon rains and some touchy trigger fingers responding to unknown noises, the men welcomed the new day and the beginning of our one year adventure in Vietnam. Deeds not Words! P.S. I was laying there in the monsoon rains along with my troops from 3rd platoon, B/1-22.

Comments: 49 Years Ago - June 25, 1950 the Korean War started. Often called "The Forgotten War", it is important that no American veteran should ever allow another veteran to be forgotten. Although the 22nd Infantry Regiment was on Cold War occupation duty in Germany throughout the Korean War, several of our members who served with our Regiment in WWII and in Vietnam served with other combat units in Korea. From one set of proud veterans to those who served so well in Korea, we salute you. Over 2 million Americans served in Korea and over 54,000 made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of freedom.

If you're scanning this website, it means you're interested in remembering, and there's no better place than in a comfortable hotel with friends you've not seen for 30 years. No one forces you to talk or remember anything you might not want to, it's up to you. You' d be surprised at how many guys are looking to hear from you. There is plenty to do and see, and good times to be had. You needn't have been a hero to to be welcome. We're just guys who spent a lot of hot, wet, and often dangerous days together...it means something!! Come to Minneapolis and be with the best! You'll be glad you did.

Comments: Greetings 22nd Infantry Regiment Society! I am trying to find out more information about my grandfather and his service during WWII. He was PFC Otto H. Kaiser, originally in L Company, but later transferred to HQ 3rd battalion, of the 22nd Infantry, on the 2nd of July 1944. My grandfather was proud to have served in the US Army and I would like to honor him by finding out more about his service. We have reason to believe he was present on D-Day and was in the vicinity of Ayeville (spelling?), France in early June 1944. We are also aware that during 6/6/44 thru 8/31/44, Otto Kaiser served as scout and interpreter. He had a strong German accent, and was never promoted higher than PFC. Newspaper article(s) when they quoted him, referred to him as Otto Kerr, due to his German last name. Medals and citations appear to have been signed by H.W. Blakely, Major General US Army Commanding. Otto Kaiser was from the New York area, Brooklyn/Queens when he enlisted and either trained at Fort Dix and/or received his honorable discharge on 10/4/45 from Fort Dix. Appreciate any assistance you all could provide. In addition, would like to thank those who have assisted me thus far (MC Toyer, R. Rush and C. McKee). I want to be able to pass down the history and pride my grandfather had for his service and his country to his great-grandchildren.

Dad was in Foxtrot Company, 22d Infantry. His name is Tech Sergeant Harold Albert(Davis) Durand service # 32944796. His last name was Davis when he served but his step-father adopted him shortly after they both returned from Europe with CIB's, Purple Hearts and the Bronze Star. Grandpa fought with the 2d ID carrying a BAR and came home carrying shrapnel from a grenade. Dad was in a field hospital with frostbite and recovered soon enough to get wounded somewhere in France. He was transfered to the hospital at Camp Carson and discharged in July '45. Dad's proud of his military service and the fact that a family member has served in every generation since the revolution. I'm sure he'd like to hear from any 4th ID soldier and anyone who may have known him.

Comments: ARE YOU WONDERING WHAT OUR REGIMENT WAS DOING 55 YEARS AGO TODAY? If so, you can read a day by day account for the month of June 1944 in the book "Utah Beach to Cherbourg" which was written by the Center of Military History and published in 1947. The book is availability in its entirety, including maps, on the internet at http://www.army.mil/cmh-pg/books/wwii/utah/utah.htm I find it fascinating to follow our Regiment as they fought through the hedgerows in what was our heaviest casualty month in our history. And, in case you are wondering, 1-22 and 2-22 were attacking the Germans two most powerful coastal forts at Crisbecq and Azeville while 3-22 was reducing enemy strong points along the beaches.

Comments: 55 Years Ago - June 6, 1944 - As part of the 4th Infantry Division, the 22nd Infantry Regiment assaulted Utah Beach on D-Day in the long awaited drive to defeat Hitler and release his stranglehold on Europe. Attached to the 8th Infantry Regiment, the 3rd Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment attacked at H-Hour (0630 hours) and were followed in the second wave by the remaining two battalions and support units of the Regiment. Rob Rush, our historian, has found from the Morning Reports for June 6, 1944 that our Regiment lost 9 men KIA, 4 MIA, and 35 WIA on that longest day on the coast of France, the first of many more casualties that occurred in the month of June 1944 and in the next 11 months as our Regiment fought across Europe. Let us never forget those men who made the D-Day assault and wrote a sterling chapter in our Regiment's history. Deeds not Words!

I am completing my Doctoral dissertation that examines the organization and soldiers of the 22d Infantry during the battle in the Hürtgen Forest and want to ensure that I have left nothing out. I have the microfilmed morning reports for every company in the 22d for the period Jun 44- May 45 - but would like to find out when and where you entered service, as I have found that there are many service numbers in near sequential number, which means that you and your buddies stood in the same line at the induction center and served through the war together. I would also like to look at any diaries, journals, maps, letters or any other contemporary information written in 1944-and after viewing would return to sender. I also want to thank all those who sent me letters detailing their service with the 22d Infantry as they filled in some of the rough spots. My address is 8335 Seabright Drive, Powell OH 43065.

I hadn't seen my old CO, Lee Lloyd, since the Nashville reunion, and this time he brought our old first sargent, Edward Nagel. The three of stirred up a lot of old memories, some funny and some not funny at all. I know that the three of us were especially touched when the small number of us WW 2 members present were given a standing ovation by the greater number of Vietnam Veterans present....Thanks again guys!!!! God willing I'll see you all in Atlantic City Ed

Comments: Since I first signed the guest book 6 months ago I have been contacted by Norm Nishikubo and have had several great telephone reunions with former Vietnam Triple Deucers. Thanks Norm, John Eberwine, and Bill Allison. Your efforts have enriched many lives. I wondered about Austin (Blues) Kreeger about a thousand times over the last 31 years, and you can bet that I was overjoyed to talk to him again. We found that we had been living about 40 miles apart for most of that time. As a new member of the 22ndIRS, I wish I could be with you all in Dallas this weekend. I would especially like to meet members from WWII and Korea, so I could thank you for creating and continuing the Society so that we youngsters (I'm 52, but still 18 at heart) can enjoy membership. I would especially like to hear from anyone who was part of the 'infusion program' under which several dozen of us were transferred from the 1st BN (Mech) 5th Infantry in Cu Chi to the 2/22 during the summer of 1967. Rufus Dudley, where are you?

Comments: I just received the following report from Shannon Timberlake on the death of (Major) Ron Timberlake: "Ron passed away May 6th. He was killed in a motorcycle accident when someone pulled out in front of him. The Memorial Service was May 9th, and internment will be at Arlington May 18th at 0900." - I knew Ron only from his writings but have developed a deep respect for his honor and patriotism. As I recall he served his first tour with the 187th AHC (Crusaders) out of Tay Ninh and undoubtedly flew many missions in support of the 2nd and 3rd Battalions 22nd Infantry and the rest of the 25th Division as well.

Comments: 54 years ago today, May 8, 1945 - VE Day - the end of WWII in Europe. When the announcement of cessation of hostilities was heard, Chaplain BIll Boice sent down a letter to the men of the Regiment to be addressed to their families and mailed home. It read: "This evening Admiral Doenitz has announced to the German people the unconditional surrender of all German fighting forces. Had this surrender occurred the 1st of September on our wave of optimism when we hit the Siegfried Line, or immediately after the defeat of Von Rundstedt and the successful crossing of the Rhine, we would have been wild with joy. The news of Germany's surrender was received by all of us with a calmness very nearly approaching indifference about the feeling deep within our hearts. There was no revelry last night, no drunkenness, no shouting, no flag waving, nor horns blowing; there was a sober realization that it was all over, at least so far as Europe was concerned, and that we, by the strength of our arms and by our own courage, had, with the help of God, completely and finally defeated everything that the warped and twisted soul of a perverted nation could hurl at us. We take no undue pride in what we have done, for we are sobered by the blood of our comrades which cries up from every foot of ground from Normandy to Berlin and from Holland to Italy. We have done what we had to do for you, as well as for our own peace of mind. I am proud of my officers and fellows soldiers in the 22nd Infantry Regiment. There is not a single fighting day of which we must be ashamed or for which we must make excuses. No Regiment in the ETO has more right to hold its head high and to march with shoulders back, colors streaming, than this one. Its record, its casualties, its achievements, and the respect it instilled and the terror it struck in the heart of the German Army speak for themselves." Deeds not Words!

For those of you attending the reunion in Dallas next week, I will bring them with me and deliver them to you there rather than risk them not getting to you in time for the reunion. Deeds not Words!

Comments: I am the widow of Sgt. Ron Hacker, who was KIA on April 3, 1969.He served in Viet Nam from Sept. 1968 till til his death in APRIL 1969, with C Co,22nd Infantry, 4th Infantry Division.He was killed West of Kontum, as he was carrying a wounded soldier away from the line of fire. I was given his purple heart and silver star after his death, along with that info, but there is still so much unknown. I would like to know who that wounded soldier was, and if he survived. If anyone is still around who knows any details, I would like to get more info. For that matter, if anyone even remembers Ron, and maybe has some stories to tell, or pics to share4, I would love to hear from you. It's been 30 years, but he'll never be forgotten. There is a very special place in my heart that is reserved just for him. JERRY WARNER--I read your message on the "Virtual Wall". If you see this, please email me!!! Thanks to Mr. Artola, Mr.Toyer, and everyone else who were so wonderful and helpful in trying to help me find the info I need. I am forever grateful! It's nice to know that there are so many great people out there! Love to you all!!
