I did not serve in any military unit, but grew up in the Vietnam era. In my high school, which was quite close to the U.S. border in Alberta, there were pictures of a couple of guys who had joined the U.S. forces.

Always wondered about that conflict, from then to this day. Seems like every day things get declassified that shed new light on the topic.

Thanks for the information and views!

I am trying to find anyone who knows Lawrence Allen, S/Sgt, US Army, who was the lone survivor of a rescue mission from a downed helicopter on the beach near Quang Ngai on August 19, 1967. The rescue copter was piloted by Maj Stephen w, Pless, USMC, who won the Medal of Honor for his action that day.

My VN service was in 1967-68 first with Delta Med, 3rd Med Bn, 3rd Marine Division at Dong Ha followed by 8 months as the battalion surgeon of the 3rd Bn, 9th Marines, 3rd Marine Division in numerous places in northern Quang Tri province/Hwy 9/DMZ area. We had one Canadian I know of Roy Olney (?sp) who survived, I met him later at a Reunion, I think he was from the Calgary area. I have the greatest respect for our Canadian brothers who came south to fight with us and especially those who gave their lives. Very very few of our citizens both north and south of our mutual border know of this story.

Admin reply: Hello Jerry and thank you for taking the time to sign our guest book. I have the utmost respect for you and the rest of the medical staff who patched us "GI's up. A very traumatic job to say the least and I know you saved many lives. You are absolutely right when you say very few know about the Canadians who served with the American Forces in Vietnam. We now have 150 names of Canadians who paid the supreme sacrifice on our Memorial Wall.

Hi. I'm a 68 yr old Nam vet. Served w/ the 25th Inf Div in Cu Chi 69-70.
I was born in Edmonton, Alberta in 1950 and moved to Salem, Oregon in 1955.
I'm thinking of moving back to Canada but am hesitant of the Health care. I'm 100% Disability w/ USA VA & I don't know if VA down here would pay for health care in Canada. Does anyone on this site know?
God bless.
Paul.

Admin reply: Hello Paul It is a little complicated but there is a reciprocal agreement between VA and VAC in Canada for service connected disabilities. Not positive but you may have to visit VA in USA once a year to maintain your benefits.
