Request for Items

MAJ Armstrong, Executive Officer, 2nd Battalion, 60th Infantry Regiment at Fort Jackson, South Carolina is asking for Vietnam related items to place in their display cases.  If you have anything that you think would be of interest to them (boots, uniforms, equipment, etc.), please send the items to:

Hq, 2nd Battalion, 60th Infantry Regt.
Attn:  MAJ Armstrong
11000 Dixie Road
Fort Jackson, SC
29207

or contact MAJ Armstorng at:
(803) 751-4642

or email him at:
armstrongr@jackson.army.mil

You will be credited with the item(s) sent to them, but the item(s) will become the property of the 2nd Battalion.

This is the only Military facility that your webmaster is aware of that is dedicated to preserving the history and memorabilia of the 9th Infantry Division.

2nd Battalion, 60th Infantry Regiment is a Basic Training Battalion at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.  They have extended an invitation to all 9th Infantry Division Vietnam Veterans to visit them at Fort Jackson.  If you visit during the day of their graduation, MAJ Armstrong will get you a seat on the Reviewing Stand that day.

Creation of "The Memorial Fund"

It has been the policy of the Association to keep membership "dues free", a policy that we wish to continue.  Up to this point in time the officers have absorbed all expenditures.

With the upcoming reunion there is now a need to increase our outlay of funds.  As one example, we have, so far, only "advertised" our existence via the computer.  We now wish to put some advertisements in magazines, such as Vietnam Veteran Magazine, American Legion Magazine and VFW.  We would do this hoping to spread the net further and find as many old comrades as possible.

Things of this nature will cost money.  We, therefore, are creating a "Memorial Fund".  Anyone can make a donation in memory of one who has gone before us.  The person to be memorialized could be a KIA, MIA, or someone who has passed on in subsequent years.  The amount donated will not be listed. The donator will, also, have a gold star next to his or her name on the membership page.

Please send any donations to:

5th Battalion 60th Infantry Association
377 Pebble Beach Drive
Rio Vista CA 94571-2140

 

with the checks made out to: 
5th Battalion 60th Infantry Association

It is not necessary to make a donation to have a memorial added to the web site.  If you cannot afford to make a donation, please feel free to submit your memorial and it will be posted on the "Memorial" page.
