RANGER WILLIAMS

I was glad to find this page on Ranger Williams, I remember him from our time at An Khe. I heard it through the grapevine about his death and the mission and what I heard at Fort Carson where I was stationed after leaving RVN July 1969. The story Rick Grimes tells is what I heard at the time back in the states that they had hit a battalion size base camp and did some damage before being overrun. My memories of Ranger Williams, that's what we all called him, was of a dedicated soldier and Ranger.. The area the action took place was familiar to me as it was my first assignment with Echo 20th Inf LRP, 4th Platoon, from July 68 to November 68 with the 3/506th Phan Thiet. You will be remembered RLTW!

E Company (Long Range Patrol) 20th Infantry (Airborne), First Field Force Vietnam (IFFV) was activated on September 25, 1967 in Pleiku, South Vietnam. The unit was organized with highly trained and motivated soldier, most of whom had at lease 6 months in combat and had undergone an intensive selection program before being assigned. The unit was organized to provide long range reconnaissance, surveillance, target acquisition, and special type missions in a corps level basis and usually operated in 4-6 man teams. The company also had the capacity to operate as a platoon size force and conduct regular recon-in-force missions. At time, they were attached to Special Forces units and were trained by them at the MACV Recondo School in Nha Trang, South Vietnam.

On February 1, 1969 E Company was inactivated and was re-designated as C Company (Ranger) 75th Infantry (Airborne), IFFV and continued its mission until it was deactivated on October 25, 1971 in An Khe, South Vietnam. In 1974, when the 1st Ranger Battalion 75th Infantry was activated, it was assigned the lineage from C Company (Ranger) 75th Infantry (Airborne) IFFV due to it’s excellent war record and outstanding performance as a LRP/RGR Corps level unit.
