LAST MONDAY I VISITED TOM AGNEW INTHE VETS HOSPITAL IN ALBANY NY. AS I PROMISED HERES ANUPDATE ON HIS SITUATION. ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO TOMMY HAD ONE HIS BIG TOES AMPUTATED DUE TO A SORE THAT WOULD NOT HEAL. SINCE THAT TIME HE HAS HAD 5 OPERATIONS AND THE AMPUTATION IS WELL ABOVE HIS KNEE. THE LAST OPERATION TOOK PLACE ABOUT A WEEK AGO. HEIS IN THE ICU UNIT AND IN A LOT OF PAIN. I ONMLY STAYED ABOUT 20 MINUTES AS IT WAS A REAL EFFORT FOR HIM TO CONVERSE. HE DID SAY THAT HE WAS AWARE OF THE CARDS AND LETTERS FROM YOU GUYS AND IT MEANT ALOT TO HIM. WE TALKED ABOUT THE OLD DAYS AND I BROUGHT UP THE CONVENTION NEXT SUMMER. IT WAS VERY HARD TO SEE HIM GETTING BEAT UP BY LIFE. I CAN TELL YOU THAT FOR WHAT HE HAS BEEN THRU HIS SPIRIT IS VERY GOOD.ONCE AGAIN IF YOU CAN FIND TH TIME DROP HIM ACARD OR AQUICK NOTE OR IF YOU HAVE THE INCLINATION SAY A PRAYER FOR HIM.SORRY THE NEWS IS NOT MORE UPBEAT,BUT I FEEL A STRONG OBLIGATION TO LET YOU KNOW THAT THINGS ARE NOT GOOD.

229th Members,
I wanted to pass on some information that I got from the Vietnam Magazine the other day. The 229th AvBn is the Cover Story in their magazine this month. If you guys get to read this magazine or can get the story for me, I'll put it on our site. Later my friends have a great one.

I am putting together facts about the 1st shift for a future web site. Looking for crews that hauled 3 horses from Tuy Wah back to base camp sometime early 66. Also crews that made the milk runs after Kinard left. The order was issued no beer in forwar areas but each man would get 2 can of canned milk. I also have a list that continues to grow of 2/7th Vets from all years, the list is now over 400.

I was going through the photo album of Mike's and I ran on to the picture of the huey on it' s side and for a little bit I thought that it was the bird I was in when we crashed outside of FB 2/8th Fountaine in April of 71. Then I looked closer a the surr unding area and it couldn't because we crashed into a very small clearing. We lost Capt Fanning and WO Jeffries and a couple of the packs that we were taking back to Bien Hoa. We were with the Black Bandits A Company 229th AHB 3rd Bg. Hey, does anyone how I can get a hold of two things and the 1st is a Black bandit patch and an Air assault patch the second is a little harder it Major Parsons the CO for the "Bandits" while I was there, in 71?

I served with C Co., 229th Avn. Bn. from May 1970 to Sep 1970. I was at Tay Nihn until we moved to Bein Hoa. I was a door gunner and crew chief. Also, I was crew chief on "da judge" and Nighthawk Junior. I remember very few names, except for nick-name It was a long time ago. I'd really like to get ahold of "Pineapple." If memory serves me correctly, Pineapple worked as some sort of tech. I'd also like to find Sgt. Jackson from the motor pool.

Im looking for anyone who may have known my "Daddy Bill" in the 229th or anywhere else. His life has always been somewhat kept from me to save my feelings or to perhaps keep the past where some believe it belongs, in the past. Im 30 years old and too o d to care what others believe I should or should not know. He is my Daddy Bill and always will be and it is time for me to know more about him. Unfortunately I am unable to go to my family to find these answers for fear of being labeled a "dweller" How can I dwell on someone I know so little about. Please help me find some answers, stories good or bad. I lost an Uncle very close to me to cancer do to Agent Orange who knew my dad well. I didn't want to bring up too many bad memories for him and asked l ttle about him. When he passed away so did my last hope with someone who believed in me and my right to know about my dady until now hopefully. I know it may bring up bad memories, but I hope someone will find the courage to contact me and let me into y daddys life, just a little bit more. Thank You so much and God Bless you all.

Great site. Would sure like to find a guy named Chris Rollo. He was a gunner in D/229 in 66-67. We were in basic and AIT together. All I remember is that he went to the 229th while I was in the 227th and he was from Houston, TX. I have tried a lot of he vet search pages, no luck. Thanks, PJ "GARRY OWEN"

Co. C May 67-Apr 68 I worked in flight Ops and flew as door gunner when I could. Retired from the army in 95 after 28 yrs total service got to go to three little wars during that time and the time in Vietnam was by far the best of the three. Would love t hear from any one who served in c/229th during it's best year 67-68. I have two sons,oldest a staff sgt in 1st Special Forces Gp. the younger a Corporal in 2nd Ranger Bn. so I'm a proud father and a proud veteran. Great site I will surely visit it often. br>

I regret not having more pictures from my flying days with Charlie Company. It is hard to believe how quickly the years have slipped by but somehow NorthFlag, its pilots and crew, and RVN are never far from my consciousness. In fact my favorite CD is " OUNTRY - Folks Songs of Americans in the Viet Nam War" by Saul Broudy, Chip Dockery, Bul Durham, Bill Ellis, Toby Hughes, Dick Jonas, and Chuck Rosenberg. Thank you Sloniker for introducing it to me! Northflag 745

I was in the D 229th in 71-72 flying the Oh-6a. At the time my last name was spelled DuBoise. Changed to the current spelling for legal reasons after being medivaced. Found out the government would not have paid anything to my parents because of the legal diference in spelling of last name due to an error on birth certificate. I would like to see or hear from any of the guys who were in the D troop at that time. I have lost touch with everyone since I left Nam so long ago.

Rest easy boys, we are carrying the torch of the 229th with pride. Since you guys tore up the skies, t e 229th Regiment has earned the title of Flying Tigers from the orginal American Volunteer Group of the old China days. We use their name and logo plus exercise the professionalism of you guys with extreme pride. Our unit is looking forward to a peace ke ing mission in Bosnia later this year. Flying Tigers, Jack

Hi Rod, I was with the 229th in 1967. I was stationed at Ankhe and Bongson, Vietnam. I worked at the refueling station on the hill above the EM Club and the little theater. Watched a lot of Elvis movies there and drank a lot of Bud. I was the guy out there at night waving the flashlights so the fire fly choppers would know were to land. By working at night. I use to fly gunner once in awhile the next day. Do you have a list of names of the guys in our unit at Bongson in 1967. I am looking for a Jo eph Reid from New York and a Pfc. Peterson from Ohio. Sure would like to find my old buddies. Does the 229th have a reunion. If so,were and when. This a great web site. Keep up the good work. Richard Huntley. Gustine,Ca. (209)854-3819.
