  • I remember Nathaniel

    Posted on 6/1/16 - by Peter Cole petercharlescole@gmail.com
    Nathaniel Bush was my first point man when we walked out of LZ Jamie 23JUN69. He, I, and several others in my squad were FNGs. All of us FNGs were very nervous about being placed on point. Nathaniel opened fire several times and each time we had to check out the area finding nothing. I also remember that Nathaniel told me he was going to live through Vietnam whereas I was certain I would die. When Nathaniel was killed I was no longer his squad leader but I remember that day and feeling such a lost about hearing about his death.

    I cannot explain Fred Fenton's remembrance. Nathaniel arrived in Vietnam on 6JUN69, Fred on 12JUN69, and I on 28MAY69. Fred was in my squad when we left LZ Jamie and was an FNG like the rest of us. It is quite likely he was his squad leader at the time of his death.

    Dear PFC Nathaniel Bush, 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

  • I was proud to have served with Nathaniel in Delta Co.2nd7th. GREAT GUY

    I recently started attending a Vietnam Veteran's support group and am realizing that it's okay now to talk about it after remaining silent for 44 years. At least I survived my year & now I am going to try to speak for the true heroes of The Vietnam War; the ones who never were fortunate enough to get to come home intact. I was privileged to know Nathaniel. I can still remember when I met him the day they brought him out to the bush in the Huey. I had just made squad leader and they sent him to my squad. I can still remember the scared look on his face as the chopper took off (the same look we all had on our 1st day, standing in the middle of the jungle with about 100 guys that you don't know as that chopper disappears out over the treetops). He came over and introduced himself to me. I said, 'Welcome to the 3rd platoon Nate'. He smiled that Nathaniel smile that I grew to love and said, 'I would prefer Nathaniel, if you don't mind'. I liked him from then on. I forget who contacted me several years ago, wanting to know if I had any pictures of him but I do if anyone would like copies. I won't tell 'war stories' but for any friends or family that wants to know, any man who was an 11-Bravo (infantryman or 'Grunt') in the jungles of Vietnam was a hero!!! Most people don't know that 9 out of 10 soldiers in Vietnam were not in direct combat. Believe me, Nathaniel was a hero!! GREAT MAN; LOYAL SQUAD MEMBER; & GOOD FRIEND.



    May he dwell in the house of The Lord forever & ever. Fred Fenton. fdfenton@live.com
