Ground CasualtyPosted on 6/4/16 - by firstname.lastname@example.orgMAJ Dale R. Buisand and MSG Chester M. Ovnand were assigned to Advisory Team Bien Hoa, MAAGV Advisors, MAAGV. On July 8, 1959, they were killed at Bien Hoa, twenty miles northeast of Saigon, when the Vietcong ambushed the mess hall during intermission of a movie the Americans were watching. The movie, “The Tattered Dress,” was playing before the attack. Ovnand rose to turn on the lights to change the reel when the enemy surrounded their target and opened fire. The advisors were killed instantly. Two Vietnamese guards were also killed. Buis had been part of the Military Assistance Advisory Group sent in 1955 to train South Vietnam troops. He was formerly the first name listed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and various web sources]MORE
Dale buisPosted on 5/30/16 - by Tylah.email@example.comI found out that Dale Buis is my fathers uncle. I understand that he was the first one out of mess hall and was hit by the percussion of a bomb. He was a strong man. We recently went to see Pender, Nebraska and seen where he lived and saw a memorial in the museum for some of his stuff he had in war. He was working as a doctor in Pender in a beautiful house. He was well known because of loyalty showed people around Pender. Very heartfelt. My dad Delton Buis was a mechanic in the Korean war. He died at 49 and I researched our family after Deltons death and that how I found out about Dale. Pender was very loyal to his memory.MORE

Remembering An American HeroPosted on 10/15/13 - by Curt CarterDear Major Dale Richard Buis, sirMORE
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
