This is really great Boonie. I hope we can get everyone listed on the map

I wish I could tell you where my poeple were, but no one has ever said, and I don't ask. We don't talk about the war

Jeff, what can you tell us about the 18th Aviation Company? from what I have read on the 1st Avn Bde website it was a composite company equiped with Hueys, Loaches and Chinooks. Was it formed in country with bits of departing Avn Cos?

He was in Chu Lai for sure. I remember that much. He was also at Khe Sanh briefly at the same time that my Uncle David was there. I still haven't made it over to show him the map yet... It seems like Dong Ha was a place he pointed out to me on another map.

He was with 1st Battalion/5th Marines for most of his 20-months, being assigned by Battalion HQ or his Communications Platoon to different Platoons and Companies so frequently that he doesn't remember any specific one more than the others. He also spent time with 1st Marines and 7th Marines, but not for very long.

I started in Ben Hoa in the 215th Med bat sep, First Cav. When the company came back to the states I went to the 229 AHC still in Ben Hoa. When the 229th returned to the states I was sent to Pleiku in the 58th (I think) Avaition company. Ben Hoa from October 71 to June 72, then Pleiku from June 72 to October 72.

Thanks for the infos Pat, I've added you to the map
You'll notice I located you at Gia Ray as well, although I'm not sure you spent a lot of time there

There wasn't any 58th Aviation Company in Nam as far as I can tell, I think you might have been transfered to the 57th? this one was at Pleiku - Camp Holloway until departure in March 1973. Here's their website, let me know if it rings a bell:

http://www.57thahcgladiators.com/

If that's not the good one I'll correct the map

I can help a little perhaps......I just spent 30 minutes looking through all that old moldy file with my army records........to try to get the dates right.I was assigned to the 191st asslt helo company at Can Tho on march 1 1971.I stayed with them until september 19th 1971.when I was at Can Tho there was a chinook company there,our 191st ,A company of the 16th cavalryif others I am not sure.the 191st "stood down " on september 19.In other words they were basically sent back to the states.however not all personel went.. only those close to DEROS.perhaps 20 guys.All the rest of us were reassigned to other units.things at that time were a little messed up I think.that is when the 18th was formed. I believe it was at the beginning a thrown togehter composite of several units.The 191st had some gunships and slicks......these were still flying missions. we also had two gunships flying night missions.At this same period I think the chinook company was also sent home. but some ships were still being used.Perhaps at the outset of the 18th was absorbing all of this.my personal records state that I was in the 162nd asslt helo company from 19 September to October 30th.This is news to me.My duty assignment records show me going immediately into the 18th.As far as I can surmise your probably correct about it being formed of departing companies.......

It's not really an album, more like a folder where I place pictures so I can link them on forums and such. Half Pint suggested that I create an open album on my Photobucket account so that anyone can contribute, gonna think about it
