I was in Viet Nam with the 101stAB 67-68 and belong to the Canadian Legion Branch 66 Toronto and thought the article "Born on the First of July" Jan/Feb was right on and very interesting. We all left our home country and came back different men and women. I have no regrets serving my Country but feel sad for all the families that lost love ones. Thanks again for the great article.

Greetings: I served in the US Navy from October 17, 1963 to December 28th 1967. The last two years of my enlistment was spent on the USS FOX (DLG 33) and I served in Vietnam the last Six months of my enlistment. I am looking forward to joining soon! I just found a clipping from a newspaper from my late mother's things of the ad put in the local newspaper by Rob Purvis in 1986 ! :)

Hi Ron. Was nice talking with you a while back about the Vet plates issue. I give you great credit for standing up. The Legion here in Manitoba and in Ottawa, leaves a lot to be desired in regards of supporting those who wore the uniform. I will keep fighting for changes.My experience has been horrible. Keep up the good work. Salute. Thank you guys for your service.

Admin reply: Yes the "Royal Canadian Legion" has never been friends of Canadian Vietnam Veterans and have stuck a knife in our back every chance they got.

As a Canadian citizen I entered the United States in early 1969. I enlisted in the US Navy and entered bootcamp on Dec 29, 1969. I left the Navy 4 years later in December of 1973. My last deployment was on board the USS Hancock CVA-19 from May to Dec 1973. We deployed to SE Asia including the South China Sea and the Gulf of Tonkin.

On March 18th , 1968 While Stationed With C.Company 588th
Combat Engineers. We Came Under Mortar Attack.
I was A Sleep When I Heard A Distant Explosion , Someone Yelled Mortars ! As I got to the exit and heard another explosion , outside our hooch.I realized that the V.C. were walking the mortars. I Hit the deck and Heard a clank over my Head , a dark object had come through the roof . I covered up and waited for the explosion , I never heard it , at the time I weighed 180 pounds. The Concussion lifted me in the air. Before I hit the floor I felt a burning, stinging sensation in the left side of my body.
I was hit and I called for a Medic ! after that I heard this Whoosh , Whoosh , Whoosh , I realized that the mortar attack was still on , that the medics wouldnt come until it was over. Thanks to those medics and their quick response I survived.
I apologize for the poor punctuation , my computer is acting up.
