Message: To: Charles Otstott

My brothers name was Tom Joseph, he died October 2nd of 67. Your journal explained what happened to him. Families too put the war away from themselves in order to survive. It is only now on the 50 anniversary I could bare to try to search for information on how he died. I want you to know , he was awarded a bronze star for his actions in August when he was also wounded. I continue to search for any who knew him .

Thank You for putting your part of the war here.

I'm trying to get him the ones he is missing from the 1st Brigade when the 101st was in Vietnam. I have not been able to find one for the 2/502. Did you guys have your own battalion patch?

Message: To All of Our STRIKE FORCE Brothers

On Wednesday – August 23, at Fort Campbell we will be Rededication Our 2/502 Monument.
The Ceremony will take place at 11:00 AM near the corner of Screaming Eagle Blvd. and Tennessee Ave.
We will be honoring All of Our 474 KIAs
Our Monument was the FIRST on all of Fort Campbell to honor KIAs from Vietnam.
It was originally dedicated in 1986.
There were 26 names that slipped through the cracks and were not present on the monument.
Being the OLDEST monument, it also needed as updated face lift, to once again make it the Crown Jewel of the 502ND.

After a short ceremony, we will be having Lunch with the Active Duty Troops in attendance.
Directions will be available to get to the New 502nd Area, and the 502nd Mess Hall (which is more like a Buffet Restaurant)

There is NO COST (except Lunch) for this.
We would ask You to really consider attending this Ceremony for Our Fallen.
At this point we have over 35 men and wives who will be in attendance.
This is a time when the Strike Force really needs to come together.

Please email or call me, so we can put You on the list

Dale Joritz – C/2/502 ‘68 - 248-399-5774

All those attending will need a Valid Drivers license or Military ID to Enter Fort Campbell.

All the very best!
Reading some of these entries I was also there when that tiger was killed. Most of you 502 guys stayed at our 502nd TAC CP location on your way to/from your unit in the field. We handled your PRC25 medivac requests and resupplied you every 3 days by chopper.

Message: In case I forget by the time I get to the reunion I would like to express a few things I know/feel about memorial monuments. Never spend the money for the project like you are on a budget. Once the plan is laid out No Changes. Plan on the high end of all estimates and cut no corners, this is a reflection of not only our fallen but our regiment. Cast aluminum is cutting a corner. Our crest is brass. Any finish on aluminum is subject to wear by weather. The colored (black and blue) areas of the regimental crest should be glass enamel believe me it is classy. The only part of a project like this is that needs to be done by a committee is the fund raising. Obviously we will need a head donger who is an asshole for detail and can read and approve contacts. When ever I know of a official committee I am in for one thousand dollars and will do all I can towards seeing this project to its completion.
I will be for ever humbled by the men I fought with and those that fell in our fight

Message: 1971 Operation MONSOON DYNAMIC DEFENSE. On the 2nd of December, 1971 D Company, 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry was able to be
airlifted in about 2 clicks from the PLAYTEX 866 crash site. The next morning team from Graves
Registration and the Accident Board linked up with Delta Company, 2nd
Battalion, 502nd Infantry to move towards the site. It would take two more
days of cutting through the mountainous jungle to get there at 0830, December
1971, 7 days after the crash.
The aircraft was located 650 feet up the mountain, and was completely
demolished. Located in a creek bed, it had hit a 50 degree slope with such
impact that it caused its fuel cells to rupture resulting in a flash fire. There were
no survivors or any indication that anyone had survived.

Message: Hello,
I served with B/2/502 2nd Platoon in 71-72. About a year ago, I was contacted by a squad leader in my platoon and told about the website, reunions and that he had given me a roll of film to take to Camp Eagle to get developed when I was going on R&R. He wanted to know is if I still had his pictures. Well I did not remember any of that.

A few weeks ago I did find pictures I sent home while cleaning out my parents home in preparation for selling it. I had not seen those pictures since I sent them from Vietnam.

My reason for writing is to ask what I need to to do in order to join and how to provide you the pictures for inclusion in your albums. My squad leader and I have identified many of the men in the photos but could use some help with a few unknowns.

I had gone through the Bravo Company link and Quitman Lockley responded with the information to contact you.

Message: I was in B Co. 2/502 When Thomas Taylor (Son of Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor) commanded it. I have never visited these sites before and have lost contact with all who were in my company. Am just looking to re-establish some contact. I remember William Fingers was in the company with me and he and i had the task of writing up awards for the company after a battle in Dak To. I was in Tuy Hua, Phan Thiet, Hill 51 when Carpenter and Sabilowski got the DSC (I think this was the award) and many other areas. I was in the weapons platoon with Sergeant Elder from Mississippi but was an RTO and so was a huge target with the radio on my back. I got a huge rush as i began to run through some of the names.
