I'm looking for any information regarding the 2/12 cavalry for my father who served with this battalion in Vietnam in 1968-69 or 69-70. He is getting older and not in that great of health, so all he can remember at this point is he was a member of the recon platoon, and cannot remember the company. Is there anyway you may be able to find more information (what company?) or maybe someone who could have served along with him. I know I don't have much to go on but any info you could pass on would be greatly appreciated. I would love to be able to hopefully reconnect him with some old buddies or maybe just info about them. His name is Gary Loren Coffelt E-5.

I am looking for those that may have served with my Uncle Timmy, Frank T. Shelton, D-2/12th Cavalry. He was killed 5/18/66 in what my Daddy called Happy Valley. Uncle Timmy was a shutterbug and took lots of pictures of the area and the men he served with. From what my Dad was told, he had his camera with him when he was killed but it was returned to my Grandparents without the film that he had in it that day. There are no names on any of these pictures so don't know who they are to share what may have been their last picture taken with their families.

I am looking for anyone that served with my dad at An Khe from December 66 through December 67. His name was SSG Charles Marshall and he was from south Alabama. He was 32 years old and a father of 5 kids. I am pretty sure he was with D 2-12 Cav, but he might have been with D 1/12. I also know that he got hurt when clearing an LZ by wrapping some DET cord around a tree and it exploded prematurely.  After he got hurt, he found a gig at the "NCO" club on base. I guess he managed the club? He did that the last 5 months in country. I would love to hear from anyone who knew him or has any photos or stories of him. He passed away from lung cancer Sep. 27, 2007.

LZ Leslie came under heavy attack and the perimeter was breached and almost overrun shortly after midnight January 3rd. In the initial barrage, members of the unit had been hit as they sought cover and fought throughout the night; as we fought, Ralph was wounded in the arm. At daybreak, the casualties were medevaced and that was my last contact with Ralph. Since January 1968, Ralph Haugherty has been in my thoughts all these years and I would like to be reunited with him and make sure he's all right.

Hello All

I need any strong input concerning connection agent orange and multiple myeloma. I have been diagnosed with it. I'm in stage 3-b and going through chemo at this point and time. They are also giving me a push injection of bone builder once month.

I haven't got hold of the VA yet, I think I need some "on hand" or "been there, done that" input if possible. We were in LZ Grant area, Tay Ninh, Phouc Vinh, Phouc Long provinces, if I remember right.

                        THANKS AGAIN

Eddie and I entered service together 6 October 1966.  We did Basic at Fort Ord California and AIT at Fort Polk Louisiana (Tiger Land). Upon Graduation we both received orders for Vietnam.  He was assigned to the 1st Cav., I was assigned to a MACV Security Platoon in II Corps, Kontum Province. As good fortune would have it, we had a chance encounter a few months after being deployed.  Eddie’s unit was in my area, and he and the rest of the guys were actually able to spend a couple of days with us before his unit moved on. Eddie was from Astoria, New York.

I’ve been looking for him for many years, I have much I would like to say to him, at the very least, I would dearly like to see him at least one more time.  If there is any way you or any one else can help me in this regard, I would be most grateful.

May William T. Edgerton (October 12th, 1967) and Melvin C. Lapp (October. 26th, 1967) soul's rest in peace for their ultimate sacrifice while serving for the 1st Cav, D Co, 2/12th.

I served with the 1st Cav, D Co, 2/12th from June thru October 1967. On the 26th of October I was wounded near Chu Lai shortly after Melvin was wounded with another trooper (name unknown). Melvin later passed away from his wounds, and I had to identify Melvin’s body. Is there anybody that served with him in the Cav, or knew him before he enter the army?

Tom Nolen,  Festus, MO

I just got back from visiting The Traveling Wall. A childhood friend of mine, Thomas Loos, unfortunately is listed on the wall. I grew up with Tom, played Little League ball together. Through the internet I've found he was a Silver Star recipient. From the date and location of his death it seems he might have been involved in the Battle of Hue. He served with Company D, 2/12th Cavalry.

I am looking for anyone who might have served with Tom and could tell me more about his time in Viet Nam. I would appreciate any emails
