Hello. My name is Mike. My Father is Michael Frescas (SP4-Army). He served in Vietnam 1969-70 in the 9th infantry 3/60th (Dong Tam) and 5/60th (Rach Kien).
He was a "River Rat". My father is alive and well. He will be 65 in November. When I was younger I remember him having this box filled with pictures from his time serving our country. We have few pics left.
I came up with this idea to try and find people who served with him and present him with a present of his past. I would like to get some photos of him and/or his friends who served with him. His memory isn't all that great so I am working pretty much from scratch. He does recall a buddy named Steve who he made several trips off base with to go to Saigon. He said Steve was a surfer from California. Any photos or old stories with which my dad was involved would be appreciated. Thanks to all who served, are serving and those who will serve.
I am looking to contact anyone who served with LTC. Leo Sikorski. I am married to his daughter Sandra. I am trying to put a book together for my wife and her brothers and my boys to remember their dad and know their grand-pa. Any information or pictures would be greatly appreciated.
Iím looking for anyone who was with my husband, Armond Stein, when he was killed by a sniper in Cholon on May 13, 1968. He was in Charlie Company. I would also like to talk to anyone who knew him or had any stories about him. I am his wife and I donít know any of his buddies. If you are out there, please let me hear from you. I know itís been 39 years but I would like to know.
I received an email today from Carly Stroomer requesting information about her uncle Ronald Stroomer. He served with Bandido Charlie from Sept. 1967 until he was KIA on January 17, 1968. She would like to know if anyone remembers him and could share information with her. She specially requested information on how he died. Also would like to know if anyone has pictures of him and would be willing to share them with her. Her email address is:

Does anyone remember SP/4 Austin (Wee Baby)? He carried
an M-60 in 3RD Herd A/5/60. He was already in-country when I arrived
10/67. When did he leave Nam? Where did he go? Where is he? My wife
and I attended the showing of "PLATOON" years ago. When the
character "King", the black soldier with the gold tooth (Austin
didn't have one) showed up on-screen, I jumped up and yelled, real
loud, "AUSTIN!"....oops! Forgot where I was. Got lost in time.
10/28/67...On an incubus run to Saigon...ambush...10 seconds later,
Doc Divecchio, Austin, and I were the three remaining, unscathed ,
members of 3rd Herd. 12/19/67..."Mech Infantry Navy"...I was up to
my eyeballs in water, stuck in the mud, and sinking! A big black arm
came out of the nippalm and pulled me out of the mud.
Saved my life! ...Thanks, Austin! I need to find him........Thanks

I have recently come across the 5th/60th website, and I am
trying to find out any information I can about my uncle, Cpt Edmund
B. Scarborough. He was killed in action May of ?68. I was born that
following July and given his name. Currently I have been serving
proudly for 12 years and just returned from Iraq where I was for a
year with the 82nd Abn Div. I am very interested in finding out
every minute bit of information from anyone who knew my uncle and
served with him in Vietnam. Currently I am at Ft. Jackson, SC
serving as a Drill Sergeant. I can be reached at
Thank you ahead of time for any assistance you can provide.

I am looking for anyone who served with my husband, Frank Pawloski
E5, when he was serving in the field in Sept.1969 through Feb. 1970
in Rach Kein. He was then sent to Go Devil Academy and trained
troops in Tan An until July 1970. His address was Co-B 5th Bn. 60th
Infantry when he was in the field. He was in the 2nd platoon (Bravo)
and they served around Rach Kein from Sept. 1969 to Dec. 1969, then
in the Plain of Reeds from Dec 1969 through Feb. 1970 but still out
of Rach Kein. My husband had a very serious stroke in 1989 and I am
trying to re-apply for VA benefits, because he told my mother that
they sprayed Agent Orange right on him when he was in Vietnam. I
assume that this was out in the field. They also ate out of half
barrels with chain link fence over them during stand downs. I need
to know if they had an Orange line on them. That would mean they
contained Agent Orange at one time. Any information that I can get
on this subject would help me. My husband is now non-verbal and
cannot talk about Vietnam and never did before he had his stroke. He
also has problems remembering many things about Vietnam. He does
recognize the pictures, but not the names that go with the pictures.

I'm trying to find "RAGGMAN". He was a SGT in A/5/60 in '67-68'.

was familiar with my Grandparent's restraunt (Pines Cafe) in

off and on, for three months. Always busy signal. Finally
wrote a letter. Hoping it finds him. Remember RAGGMAN?
Anyone know where he is?

3rd Brigade (5-28-67 - 8-9-67) and Co. B 2nd/60th 8-9-67 thru
8-12-67. David was wounded on August 12, 1967 on a S&D mission
that originated out of An Nhut Tan. He died from his injuries on
1-1-68. Two of the men that were with him on this mission were
Sp.4 Gary Johnston and Sgt. Ted Maltezo. Even after all these
years I have so many unanswered questions I would like to hear
from some of the men that he knew as he always spoke so highly of
them and I often wonder how they are doing. I know it has been a
long time but he lives on in my heart forever. He was in-country
such a short time and was moved around quite a bit. God Bless all
of you who were there. Thank you. Dianne (Donnelly) Gautcher.

I am attempting to locate anyone who was stationed with B/5/60 (Mech)
when we were transfered over to the lst Division and became B/1/16 (mech) and
moved from the Delta.
Billy J. Smith, 1LT Infantry, I believe was a platoon leader in the
5/60 Inf. I do not recall what company. We were in OCS
at Benning and lived next to each other in Junction City, KS.
I was with B 4/39th, 9th Div. I believe he was wounded in
combat but remained in country/returned to his unit. I'm sad
to say he was KIA at the end of his 2nd tour as an advisor. I
believe it was near the same area he had served in his first tour.
