Good Morning, I was searching your site last night and saw a picture that may very well be my brother, 1LT. Johnny F. Davis. He was in Co. B, 1st BN, 505th INF, 3D BDE, 82nd ABN DIV. Johnny was in Vietnam from May 13th, 1969 until his death on June 14th. He was a Platoon leader and was killed in an ambush in the Providence of Hoa Nghia. If you can let me know who took this photo, where or when it was taken or any other info about it…I would love to have a copy enlarged so I may be able to verify that it is Johnny.

Thank you so much and God Bless you for your works,

Karen Davis Johnson

I received the email below from John Moore, I contacted him from the messages on the Golden Brigade’s website. He suggested that you might be able to put me in touch with Ken Maggard or forward my email to him. I am looking for anyone who knew my brother, 1LT. Johnny F. Davis. He was in Co. B, 1st BN, 505th INF, 3D BDE, 82nd ARB DIV. He was in VietNam from May 13th, 1996 until his death on June 14th. He was a Platoon leader and was killed in an ambush in the Providence of Hoa Nghia. If you remember him of know anyone who might, please get in touch with me.

Thank you and God Bless, Karen Davis Johnson

This is from John Moore: Lt Davis was not in my platoon, but I knew him. I was a Sgt in the third plt, under another Lt, so I did not work in direct contact with him. Did he ever write about a couple of Sgt’s named Maggard or Demgin. Maggard may know some one who knows more about him than I do. The webmaster of the site where you found me can get Ken Maggard to contact you.

Hi, I am a history graduate student working on a personal project for my family. My half-brother’s father died in Vietnam and I am looking for anyone who has any recollections of him whatsoever. PFC Richard Arnold Carlson of the 82nd Airborne. The project that I am working on is a family history of sorts detailing my brother-in-law’s recent deployment in Iraq as a member of the 82nd as a medic and my brother’s father’s history in Vietnam. Any help would be very appreciated, I have some of his photos and his letters to fill in some of the blanks but personal recollections of the units involvement would be especially appreciated. Thanks.
