Comments:

On arriving in Vietnam in Feb 69 I was unfortunate enough to be assigned to the

3/22 Regulars - although I really wanted to be with those handsome looking guys

in the Wolfhounds or Manchus or Golden Dragons but no they assigned me to the

ugly mob, the Regulars. ( Didn’t it take a Limey to give you your name ) I can’t

remember one guy in the 3/22nd you would want your daughter to come home with,

However after remonstrating with every officer I could find, I was required to

stay and assigned to E co Recon Platoon. These guys were even worse looking than

the line grunts in the rest of the battalion and here I was forced to be part of

them. Well - Recon / E co and the rest of 3/22nd I guess that the above has got

your attention ! So why the email – not just to say hello. No - the real reason

is to ask if any of you from Recon etc, are thinking of making it to the reunion

next year. Although god knows why I want to see any of your mugs again after all

these years. I am incidentally, for those who are still interested after reading

the above two paragraphs, the English guy who served in E co Recon in 69 – 70. I

have been back in England for the last twenty-nine years and I am endeavoring to

make the reunion in St Louis. I Found this site in the last few months and take

this opportunity to say what a superb site it is. Maintained, no doubt, with a

deal of hard work. I was stupid enough to carry the radio for awhile so some of

you line grunts or even navy river tars may remember me over the airwaves. I

apologize to the guys whose names I can’t remember and the ones incorrect or

devoid of first names -- but some of the guys names that I do recall are :-

Steven Campbell, Ron Wilson, Big Jim Linder, Charles Montagna, Rosemyer, John

Dibble, Dolan, Blue, Ginger Lazemby, Jones, Gene Ladnier / Floyd Huff, Pete

Bronstad, Ron Hodges, Bob Young, all the medics and radar guys, and of course

Laird “Starcluster” Bradley. With the greatest respect I remember the guys who

sacrificed all ( including - Harvey Hassler, (Oliver Coleman “Crip platoon”) Jim

Grifasi, Ken Maxwell, Bill Gay, Richard Haile and no doubt more, that sadly I

cannot recall. RIP ). ( And I know there are veterans and families still hurting

) I am not on some kind of mission to make contact with ex E.co / Recon people

or Line Grunts but should any of you care to respond, I would be pleased to hear

from you. – To all those I know and who do not wish to respond please take my

good wishes for the future with you. May it keep you safe. It’s been a long

time. J. Roby --.Wigan, Lancashire, England. PS -- And for what it is worth, we

would all like to choose our war, but seldom can -- I am proud to have served

with you all.

Hello. I have been working on a project since 1987 in which I have been

contacting veterans of WWII. To date almost 4,500 veterans from 35 countries

have been contacted. All the information is being used in two ways: 1) put into

a book telling of the war as seen BY THE VETERAN; and 2) as information for my

WWII Living History group. In this group we do displays for schools, churches,

libraries, museums, etc. All that we take out is original, from the uniforms to

the equipment, personal items to rations, and everything in between. I have a

few questions I send out. If you are a veteran of WWII, and would be interested

in helping with the project, please contact me. Or if you would like more

information about what I am doing, please contact me. It is important to collect

these stories before it is too late. Thank you all for your time, and I hope to

hear from many of you soon. Sincerely, Wm.T. Ripley

Comments:

Hello My name is Brian Anthony and I am currently in my senior year at West

Point. I will be graduating in June of this year and will be commissioned in the

Infantry. I stumbled upon your site before while doing history research. During

this search I had the pleasure of making contact with Stan Tarkenton who served

with the 22nd during WWII. He has been extremely helpful to me in my research. I

am eternally grateful for his help and freindship. He also introduced me to your

newsletter and I am now a proud member of your organization. I thoroughly

enjoyed your last newsletter. Reading about the brotherhood you have all

developed and maintained throughout the last century of conflict makes me very

proud and excited to enter into my new profession this summer. However I am not

out of here yet! I still need to complete my senior history thesis which is on

tactical air support in the ETO. Perhaps the most important point of view to

consider when analyzing this issue is that of the infantryman. If any WWII vets

out there have any stories about the effectiveness of tactical air support

during their tours of duty in Europe and would be willing to share them I'd

really appreciate it. Whether its good or bad, I am searching for the hard

truth, and if you would be willing to help me half as much as Stan I would be

overwhelmed. If you'd be willing to help please e-mail me at

x12374@exmail.usma.army.mil or write to PO Box West Point, NY 10997. Once again

thank you for what all of you have done for our country and for sharing your

experiences with myself and others in the hope that we may learn from your

experiences. Respectfully, CDT Brian Anthony

Potential problem with December newsletter - To save money, I mailed our

December newsletter without an envelope. In some cases that I am aware of, the

USPS mail handling machines mangled the newsletter and some of our members only

received the cover page with their address on it. If this happened to you, or if

you are a paid member and haven't received your December newsletter (it was

mailed on December 1), send a note to me at PO Box 682222, Marietta, GA 30068

and I will send you another copy - and use an envelope this time. I've learned

my lesson, the next newsletter will go out in an envelope as we have always done

before. Deeds not Words!

I was thinking tonight about the 55 gal. barrels that were set by the engineers

in the company area so that we could get a shower when we got back to DT. So

much that we take for granted today that was a luxury then. To each of you I

wish a blessed Christmas and may 2001 treat you kindly.

it really happened. Others may need you to respond for them. Have a good

Saw your Web link and remembered the 2nd Batt. of the 22th Infantry at Soui Cut

after the Jan. 1, 1968 attack on thier base. They supported us with Artillery

when my Batt. the 4/9 Infantry (Manchus) were overun at Bo Tuc on Dec. 19, 1967.

We (Manchus) releived the 2/22 on or about Jan.2-3, 1968 at Soui Cut because

they had been hit hard and needed to be pulled out and had to go back to Katum??

or some other large base for a stand down and to regroup. If this is the 2/22 I

remember; I was amazed at the twin 40 that had one gun knocked out with maybe an

RPG? but the other 40 mm kept pumping those 40mm rounds out one at a time. Dec.

of 1967---thru Feb.1968 was a hell of time to be on the Cambodian border. We all

paid a heavy price but the NVA paid dearly as well. I'll close with our Manchu

Motto, "Keep up the Fire!" Bill Fitch, 4/9 Alpha Co. Aug.1967-1968

NEVER FORGET - 59 years ago today - Sunday, December 7, 1941, "a day that will

live in infamy" - without provocation, the Japanese attacked the US at Pearl

Harbor, Hawaii plunging us into World War II. For the next almost four years,

war waged around the world and 480,000 Americans and millions of others died.

Included in this total was almost 1700 members of the 22nd Infantry Regiment.

As a former Ranger and a Vietnam Veteran (B Co. 3/22 1969), I was appalled to 
hear that the army was going to take the Ranger Beret and give it to the entire 
army. Obviously the Chief of Staff of the Army (Gen. Shinseki) is not ranger 
qualified or he would not have ever made this decision. The Black Beret was and 
is a symbol of excellence, hard work and sacrifice. Just declaring it to be army 
wide will not make everyone better, it will just degrade the symbol. If this 
decision is continued to completion, I for one will never again wear my 
cherished beret.

AS I read about the Battle of Soui Tre it made reference to a 12 man Ambush 
Patrol of 12 men from the 2/22 when it was really from B CO 3/22. As a matter of 
fact I took Basic Training with 4 of the men who got killed in this battle 
namely Gibbons, Ledford, Muller and my good friend Greer from the 3rd Platoon. I 
believe this error shuld be corrected immediately out of respect for these men 
who paid the Supreme Sacrifice. Without this initial contact who knows what the 
outcome would have been. There forewarning prepared the rest for the eminate 
attack. May they NEVER BE FORGOTTEN

I was in Dau Tieng and worked with the 2/22nd Mech Recon Platoon. The Platoon 
Leader was ahead of me at OCS. I can't remember his name. He was a blod headed 
guy and wore glasses. He was liked by all. He went home in July or early August 
of 1968. Do any of you "Regulars" know who I'm writing about? I was the Lt that 
ran the convoys and got you guys all the "Road Wheels"(case of beer) and "Track 
Blocks"(case of soda) you wanted. I got stuck with the call sign "Cloudy Peaches 
30" and the Recon Platoon never let me live it down. No matter what the new call 
sign was changed to, one of thoses guys would always say, "Is that you Peaches?" 
Thank you all, those who were there before my tour, during and after for all you 
did. You are all True Patriots.

To all the young men who were part of the Soui Tre (Firebase Gold) battle, I am 
humble and salute you. As a brigade reporter/photographer (I was drafted, damn 
it!), I made it to the firebase a day AFTER everything had ended (thank 
God...and I was still scared) and by then, the dead NVA bodies had been 
bulldozed/buried. The brigade did manage to get a photographer there named Brad 
Bromley who took some unbelievable photos as the battle raged. Also, Time 
Magazine did a piece on the battle (I suggest, if interested, you search it out 
on microfilm at your local library). Also, there is a good description of the 
carnage in a book called "Red Thunder, Tropic Lightning". There were many parts 
to the battle most are unaware of. For example, Associated Press reporter (now 
with CNN) Peter Arnett was trying desperately to get to the battle scene from 
brigade headquarters but couldn't catch a chopper out of Dau Tieng because the 
men in the field needed supplies so badly and took priority. Brigade Col. Garth 
ordered APC'S sunk at a river near the firebase (to make a bridge) so other 2/22 
units could get across to help out in the fight. But NOTHING was more important 
than the men who fought it...some hand to hand. I applaud you, respect you and 
commend you. I only saw the aftermath...those of you who were there when it 
happened must know what hell is like.

Memrial Day is 2 weeks away. On Sunday, May 27th, many local veterans 
organizations will celebrate the weekend with an event known as Watchfire. The 
watchfire comes from the ancient tradition that following a battle or long march 
a large fire was started so that those who are missing or lost could rejoin 
their comrades. It was also used during the Civil War. So in this time honored 
tradition we use the warmth and peace of the watchfire to remember those who 
have gone before us. It is a chance for reflection as a community upon those 
that made our nation strong through their sacrifices. If there isn't a Watchfire 
in your area. Get involved with your local veterans organization(s) and get one 
started. To learn more about it, visit the following site 
http://www.cnyvva103.org/watchfire.htm Click on the My URL link above to go 
there. There is a short movie of the 1999 Watchfire also.

56 years ago today - May 8, 1945, the German Nazis surrendered to the Allies 
ending the European portion of WWII. It also ended eleven months and two days of 
almost constant combat by soldiers of the 22nd Infantry Regiment. All across 
Europe in 1944 and 1945, they proved our motto with their Deeds not Words! We 
salute all our WWII veterans. Thanks for doing such a great job to keep our 
world free for Democracy.
