I only learned about you men today. I am moved that you would come and serve for the US. I was a kid when the war ended, about 12. My father served two tours there. I joined the Army because of it but only served in Germany during the Cold War. I always wanted to go into combat but am older and wiser now. I would have joined up in a minute back then had I been old enough. Thank you for serving and making the sacrifices you all made. All of you are heroes as far as I can tell.

Hats off to every one of you, especially the ones who didn't come back.

Admin reply: Thank you Jeff for your military service and for your Dad's Vietnam War service. It's always nice to hear from Patriots like you and your father who have served in the US Armed Forces.

Dear C.V.V.A.

My name is Chadwick Wheeler and I am studying history to obtain a MA at Wilfrid Laurier University. The reason I am contacting you is to inquire on finding participants for my research project. I will be examining the roles of Canadians who fought in the Vietnam War as part of the American armed forces.

Would anybody in your organization be interested in participating in an online email survey, phone interview, or oral interview? This research project is less about the combat experiences and more focused on the process of enlistment, training, and life after returning from Vietnam.

Confidentiality would be of utmost importance, and more details of how it will be maintained will be provided to potential participants. This project has received approval from the WLU Research Ethics Board under the tracking number REB#4064. Please feel free to respond by email at whee0540@mylaurier.ca.

Admin reply: Canadian Vietnam Veterans who served with the United States Armed Forces are invited to contact Chadwick Wheeler at the above email address.

Hi All
I was with the 25th Infantry Division 3/22/D and 25th Aviation "Little Bears" 1969 & 70. I moved to Canada in the 80's been here ever since. What do you think of our Canadian Afgan Vets? I thank them for their sacrifices and wish them well on their re-entry to civilian life.

Admin reply: Thank you Patrick for your service and welcome home! The Canadians in Afghanistan are to be commended for a job well done and we wish all who served a smooth transition to civilian life!

My great uncle Lloyd T. McGrath served with the 101st Airborne on hamburger hill and other major battles. He was awarded the Air Medal, Bronze Star, Purple Heart and the Army commendation medal.

I am very pleased to find a association quiet like this one. I knew my great uncle wasn't the only one to serve in vietnam but to see everybody else makes me very happy.

Admin reply: Thank you Joshua for signing our guestbook and a big welcome home to your great uncle! There were a few Canadians who had the courage and dedication to sign up with the US Armed Forces and fight the communists in Vietnam!

Paul and CVVA, great job as always, this site is really informative and will continue to send info or interest to all Veterans. Also, should anyone need the use of an ice house near Devils Lake, I have one which is available, due to neck surgery recovery. I am not allowed to use it, so it is available to any Veteran. Rainman

Admin reply: Thanks Rainman for the offer of your Ice House. Wishing you a speedy recovery from your surgery!

Looking for other Canucks who were in Vietnam. I was with the 4th inf. div. E co. 704 maint. bn. Arrived in country in Sept. 1966 and returned State side Aug. 1967
In Jan. 1967 I was transferred to A Co. 4th Av. Bn as a crew chief.
I was injured in a helo. crash and am a disabled veteran.
After I was released from the reg. army I served with the Az. Nat. guard the Mo. national guard and the federal army reserves. I was chief interrogator for a Psy. ops co. until it came time for me to reenlist when it was discovered that I had developed an irregular heart beat and could not reenlist. I spent a total of 17 years in the U.S. army. I returned home Nov. 8th 2001.

Admin reply: Welcome Home Brother and thank you for your 17 year of service in the US army. Our C.V.V.A. founder and treasurer Rob Purvis was with the 75th Inf. Rangers K Company - 4th Infantry Division and I was also with the 4th Inf. Div. for about 3 months, then transferred to the Americal Div.(23 Inf. Div.) We are a small group of Canadians who served in the US Armed Forces and we extend to you a warm welcome to join our association. Thank you for signing our guestbook.
