On March 19, 1967, my company, the 68th Assault Helicopter Company (Top Tigers) inserted the 3-22 Infantry into LZ Gold under intense enemy fire and land mines. Maybe some who read this will remember that fateful day and the horror of it all. For over 50 years, I have remembered that day, and have anguished over the loss of so many American lives during that assault including three crewmembers from my company. I wanted very much to return to the site to come to closure with my feelings. This past August, I did just that. I had the military coordinates of the LZ and with the help of Google Earth and a military navigation map on my cell phone, I was able to actually stand on the site of LZ Gold. I am happy to report that the area is not the hell hole that we remember - it is an area of peaceful rice fields and sugar cane fields. Some of the local farmers guided me to an area about the size of a football field. There, they reported, is where 400 Vietgong soldiers who died in the ensuing battle of Soui Tre are buried. It was an amazing experience for me.

I am reaching out in an attempt to gain knowledge on my grandfather, CPT Larry W. Bass. He was stationed in Washington and departed Tacoma, Washington in July 1967, arriving in Vietnam In August 1967. His tour was cut short in early 1968 when he was injured, losing parts of both his legs. He has patches from the 4th and the 25th and my research has let me to this page. I am thinking he was part of this Company. Can anyone help me out. He passed away in 1992 and I was only 2 years old. Any help is appreciated. Thanks


Sincerely


Joshua Bass

I joined my platoon at Tan Son Nhut Air Base about May 22, 1968. The unit had been working with another unit that had been transporting them in Armored Personnel Carriers. We were all picked up by helicopter and flown to an area where the rice paddies were wet and the road was straight. I had not been in country long enough to have any money for anything. Members of my platoon loaned me money which I never repaid. I will certainly pay it forward, but if you contact me, I will make things right with you. My goal during the three weeks I was in the field with you was to keep you alive while we performed tasks given us by the Company Commander. We did the tasks and lost only one soldier in an ambush that we sprung early, saving everyone else from getting caught up in it. When I took a bullet in my left hand, the doctors sent me home to recover because the hospitals in Vietnam were full of civilians who were hurt in Tet conflicts. I felt like I wanted to return to the unit, but I was not asked what I wanted. I returned to regular duty in November 1968 at Fort Bliss, Texas. I would love to hear from soldiers who served with me.

Meanwhile, feel free to give me feedback on the quality of the newsletter. I enjoy contributing my time and expertise to help our Association.

Unfortunately, I started attending reunions after some of our brothers had passed. I was just too wrapped up in my second family and work in the Army and Air Force Reserve Components. Sa

I have one son who served in Turkey doing Satellite Communications Repair. Another son served in Iraq shortly before the Army pulled out. He received injuries from a rocket that exploded 20 feet away, but they were not life-threatening. Like many of you, he left the Army as soon as he could.

Please do not hesitate to call or write. The holidays are difficult enough without loneliness. I would love to hear from any and all of you.

Remy

It is with heavy heart that I report to you that Robert O'Neal (65-67 2nd Plt) passed away this morning. Robert fought a furious battle with a multitude of health issues for several years after the massive heart attack.

Robert loved his Brothers and Sisters of Charlie Company and was President of the Association in the mid '90s.. RIP Brother
