  • It's been a long time

    Posted on 2/11/14 - by David H. Barnes, B co. 227th, Feb 68 - Feb 69
    It has been 46 years. Long time, much has changed. We are friends with the Vietnamese now. New wars have started, in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Rolling Stones are still touring, after 50 years. Camp Evans was turned over to the 101st Airborne in the fall, we moved to An Loc near the border across from Saigon, living in a rubber plantation. See you soon.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Posted on 12/3/13 - by Curt Carter ccarter02@earthlink.net
    Dear SP5 Larry Albert Iannetta, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    This aircraft was from B Company, 227th Assault Helicopter Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile). On March 29, 1968, it was being crewed by aircraft commander WO1 Thomas G. Carlisle II, pilot WO1 Joseph Laszlo, crew chief SP4 Jon M. Murphy, and gunner SP5 Larry A. Iannetta. While operating at night in the Thua Thien Province (I Corps), this helicopter crashed with the loss of all crewmen aboard. While uncertain of the exact cause of the wreck, it was possibly the result of inclement weather. [Taken from vhpa.org]
