  • LZ (Landing Zone) Orange, Dak Sieng, South Vietnam...

    Posted on 11/24/16 - by Dai-uy Matt Beyeler matt.beyeler@gmail.com
    From "Tales of SOG" here is a story that to me seems to epitomize the biblical verse "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) On 15Apr70, just over 46 years ago, RT Montana was asked to help rescue the crew of a shot down 170th AHC Huey in the mountains high above Dak Seang, Vietnam at a small clearing called LZ Orange... Two US SOG troopers, SSG Denis Neal and SSG Michael V. Kuropas, and several Yards did not make it back alive. This photo below of RT Montana was taken just before this action. The next photo in this photo book was taken by yours truly as I was training to go out with the now reconstituted RT Montana one year later to look for an NVA sapper battalion NW of Dak To and right up against the Laotian border...
    Here is the link to the story... Read it and weep...! Literally...
    Also, I must offer my humblest of thanks to all of the Army and Air Force aircrews who showed up and tried to help: the 3 OH-6 Loaches, that C-123, the F-4s and A1Es, the Jolly Green Giants and all of the Hueys and Cobras... Some of them did not make it back to their base alive...
    Just imagine being asked to climb into a Huey and fly into a very small clearing high up in the mountains right next to Laos to rescue a shot down Huey crew and some pathfinders, and knowing by then that they were surrounded by hundreds, if not thousands, of NVA soldiers ready, willing and able to take shots at you... Would you have climbed into that Huey...?

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear CWO Albert Lewis Barthelme Jr, 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, Sir

    Curt Carter

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
