Nov-Dec saber article posted

Saber Newspaper

The latest article about the 15th Medical Battalion in Vietnam is now available on this Web site under Informational/Historical Documents/Saber Articles. Mike Bodnar faithfully pens this article each month for the 1st Cavalry Division's Saber newspaper. We have back articles all the way back to 1999. So if you're stuck indoors for a while, why not browse through the old articles - it's interesting reading.

MEDEVAC Meadow’s Research Project

A must-read for all association members

Two of our association members have proposed researching and defining the incident that happened in May of 1970. The two who have chosen this undertaking are Jim Mitchell and Patrick Martin. Both were involved in the events of that day and they would like to document what exactly transpired. Everyone involved has their own version and take on what happened and these two, Jim and Pat, want to accumulate enough information from others involved to make an accurate and timely determination of what, who, and in what order thinks occurred.

They are asking for anyone involved or that has some knowledge of that day to please get in contact with them. Jim’s email is jamesmitchell121@gmail.com and his telephone number is 574-339-9253. Pat’s email is medevac121@gmail.com. They are contacting everyone they know but there is still other information that will be vital to their success. Some have passed and others, like Jim himself, have not known about our association.

Let's all of us put our heads together and maybe we can name someone that flew there that day or know someone from other units that may be able to help. Excuse my English but “we ain’t getting any younger”.

Thanks for any input,
Jim Ferguson
President

new photos from 67-68 added

I received a CD of pictures, thanks to Ken Archambault, from his time with 15th Med Bn back in the 67-68 timeframe. There are quite a few pictures of "young warriors" that are unlabeled on Photo page 6. I know I'm asking the nearly impossible, but if any of you old farts still have memory cells from only moderate drinking, I sure would appreciate an e-mail or text with a name for one (or more) of Ken's pictures. Oh, wait, if I'm asking for help from the 67-68 year group, you probably don't have a smartphone so texts are out of the question. God, I can't believe we still have folks alive that were around way, way back in 67!! Love ya guys.
