As a Canadian citizen I entered the United States in early 1969. I enlisted in the US Navy and entered bootcamp on Dec 29, 1969. I left the Navy 4 years later in December of 1973. My last deployment was on board the USS Hancock CVA-19 from May to Dec 1973. We deployed to SE Asia including the South China Sea and the Gulf of Tonkin.

Paul To You 'n' your fellow Vietnam Veterans of Canada: March 29th is NATIONAL VIETNAM VETERANS DAY here in the U.S. of A. I would liked to extend my heart-felt "Thank You" for your Canadian Service to our Country during that period of time. [1961 - 1975] "God Speed"....... :)

On March 18th , 1968 While Stationed With C.Company 588th
Combat Engineers. We Came Under Mortar Attack.
I was A Sleep When I Heard A Distant Explosion , Someone Yelled Mortars ! As I got to the exit and heard another explosion , outside our hooch.I realized that the V.C. were walking the mortars. I Hit the deck and Heard a clank over my Head , a dark object had come through the roof . I covered up and waited for the explosion , I never heard it , at the time I weighed 180 pounds. The Concussion lifted me in the air. Before I hit the floor I felt a burning, stinging sensation in the left side of my body.
I was hit and I called for a Medic ! after that I heard this Whoosh , Whoosh , Whoosh , I realized that the mortar attack was still on , that the medics wouldnt come until it was over. Thanks to those medics and their quick response I survived.
I apologize for the poor punctuation , my computer is acting up.

I'm a day late, and a dollar short, yet Congrats to Ron, Rob, and all the Canadians who came South, and fought along side U.S. Troops in Vietnam. I just finished-up reading a very well written article on your Service in Vietnam on your CVVA website. I'm certain a lot of Americans are unaware of the Canadians service in South Vietnam. Thanx Again! :D

Admin reply: Thanks for your feedback Wayne perhaps we will see you at the next VVA meeting!

My uncle, Wayne Lindsay 'Willy' Hawes, while a member of the Special Forces, was killed on patrol in Laos in 1969. Other than that I know almost nothing about his service in the US Army. I have his Purple Heart. If anyone knew Uncle Willy, I would like to hear from you.

Admin reply: Hello Barry Your uncle "Wayne" is on our Canadian Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. I searched the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund "Wall of Faces" hoping to find more information and perhaps a posting of someone who served with him but no luck. If we come across any information on your uncle we shall certainly pass it along.
All the best from the members of the Canadian Vietnam Veterans Association

I am doing research on the men he was with when he died. Please admin pass on my email if possible
