Comments: I’m looking for anyone that was in B Co during the deployment that served with my brother, Sgt John Plunkard who was KIA 8 April 68 at the battle of the lazy W. I’m seeking information of any kind. I’m also trying to locate the platoon sgt and platoon leader, (who is unknown to me), and also Lt. Charles Posey who took over command from Capt Step Tyner after he was wounded. Also if anyone has a way of getting information from the 101st Airborne please pass that on to me too. Please e mail me at masterblaster78@yahoo.com.

Comments: I’ve searched the Internet for David Munoz, and thank you to this website i’ve found some information i was looking for! I can not imagine what it was like to be there in that enviroment, let alone must some must go through reliving that by reading about lost ones possibly close to them. I have never even met David, but still get teary-eyed when i think about what he went through. A memory bracelet of him has changed my life and i’m glad i’m not as ignorant as before about this subject.

Comments: I work at the Oklahoma Daily at the University of Oklahoma. In 1968, a soldier in Vietnam wrote to OU asking for letters from anybody. He gave his information along with a friend who was also wanting to receive letters. Their names were Spence Martin and Pete Bruce. PFC Martin’s address included the 3rd Brigade, 82nd Airborne. I was hoping that you would be able to give me some information regarding his whereabouts. I am working on a story about these two soldiers and would like to talk to them. Thank you for your help, Justin Noel Shimko 405.325.3665
