Estevan Torres and my father Raul Rodriguez were close friends

Estevan Torres and my father Raul Rodriguez were close friends
My father, Army Sargeant Raul Rodriguez, 101st Airborne served 2 tours in Vietnam as a medic and was best friends with Estevan Torres. While stationed in Fort Cambell Ky, our families were very close. I have a few pictures of myself, my sister Grace, and two of Torres'
children. I posted a picture of Torres (left front) standing by my father Raul (right front) I have so many memories of my father telling stories of things he and Torres had experienced together. Many in which he had tears in his eyes. I know my father never got over the loss of his buddy Torres. I am so very thankful for these memories, and for my freedoms I still enjoy each and every day, because of the men and women who protect our freedom, and especially to our HEROS, who made the ultimate sacrifice, as did Estevan Torres. I can never thank you enough. God Bless his family.

Knew estavan

I knew Estevan when my dad was stationed at Fort Campbell , ky. I lived a few doors down from him and got to know him. He was a kind wonderful person. He thought me to play the guitar and I delivered his paper each morning. I later joined the army and served as a Special Forces medic and seriously wounded at Bu Dop A-341 in 1967.

I’ll never forget Estavan, his beautiful wife and family. May God bless his family.

Final Mission of SFC Estevan Torres

SFC Estevan Torres was assigned to Detachment B-56 (Project Sigma), A Company, MACV-SOG. On March 22, 1968, SFC Torres and several Scouts member, names and ranks not known, were conducting a reconnaissance mission in northern Cambodia. The patrol discovered a freshly-dug enemy bunker and tunnel complex. The team then conducted a thorough reconnaissance of the area then moved into a defensive night defensive position. During the night, an unknown size NVA force closed on three sides of the friendly position and, at daybreak, raked the team with heavy automatic weapons fire. Braving the withering enemy fire, the team moved through the enemy's flank without a casualty and quickly established a hasty defensive perimeter on a ridge line to await helicopter extraction. The NVA pursued the team, completely surrounded it and unleashed a savage attack which resulted in these men being killed. (Filed by SSGT Jason "Woody" Woodworth) [Taken from macvsog.cc]
