My uncle, Wayne Lindsay 'Willy' Hawes, while a member of the Special Forces, was killed on patrol in Laos in 1969. Other than that I know almost nothing about his service in the US Army. I have his Purple Heart. If anyone knew Uncle Willy, I would like to hear from you.

Admin reply: Hello Barry Your uncle "Wayne" is on our Canadian Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. I searched the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund "Wall of Faces" hoping to find more information and perhaps a posting of someone who served with him but no luck. If we come across any information on your uncle we shall certainly pass it along.
All the best from the members of the Canadian Vietnam Veterans Association

On November 3, 1963, Dan Stapley and I crossed over to Detroit and went to the US Marine Corps recruiter to get our orders to leave for MCRD San Diego and eventually earn the title of "Marine". After a year of electronics schools, and advancing to Corporal (E-4), I ended up in the 9th Engr Bn and went to Chu Lai, Viet Nam. I had lost track of Dan as he was assigned somewhere other than electronics after boot camp. I was honourably discharged on October 1966. Being a dual citizen, I had lived and worked in both countries during my career. I am currently in Lima, Ohio. I often wonder what happened to Dan and how Canadians serving in a US service and in Viet Nam were counted. I am pleased to find this group.

Admin reply: Thank you Roy for your service in the U.S. Marines and for signing our guestbook. WELCOME HOME! I believe most of us Canadians who served in the U.S. Armed Forces were counted in the State in which we enlisted. We'll probably never know the exact number of Canadians who crossed the border to serve in the Vietnam War. It took a lot of guts and admiration of the U.S.A. for us to go fight in a very unpopular war, half way around the world!

I grew up in Windsor, Ontario. In 1964 at the age of 17 I joined the US Army. My father signed the necessary papers and I was off to Fort Knox for basic training. I asked for Armor because I wanted to drive and shoot tanks. If fact, my advanced training was on the M60 Tank.
I was sent to Germany, where I spent 18 months. I volunteered for Vietnam and was sent to Cam Ranh Bay. I was the company clerk in the 92nd Finance Division. So much for action and adventure.
I did travel around the country and spent some time in Saigon, but was not directly involved in the fighting.

Admin reply: Thank you Don for visiting our website and signing our guestbook. "Welcome Home", and thank you for your military service to America. Tomorrow is Veterans Day in the U.S.A. and of course Remembrance Day here in Canada. Don, that's our day!

I'm not sure why I didn't think of this before, but I am looking for Mark Reed (or Reid) from Tobermory, Ontario, Canada. We met in the summer 1968 in Calgary, Alberta. Mark was travelling with a friend named Harry. I believe Mark was on his way to San Diego to enlist with the US Navy or Marines to go to Vietnam. I was 8 years old and can't remember which. Mark stayed in touch with my mother, Ann Kavanagh for a few years but eventually communication stopped. I've always wondered where Mark was and what became of him. If anyone knows any information on Mark, please let me know.

Admin reply: Hi Teri, I hope someone sees your post and that you will eventually find Mark Reed.

I am a Canadian, served in the US Navy in Viet Nam from November 1969 to 1971. Two tours, it has taken me a long time to "come out" and recover and I needed psychiatric help to do so. I was not aware of a Canadian Association. Thank you, I have tears in my eyes as I write.

Admin reply: Thank you Barry for signing our guestbook and "Welcome Home". Glad you sought the help you needed to recover from your two tours of duty in Vietnam. Keep in touch, as we're always quite pleased to hear from Canadians who served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
