Looking for one of my patrol mates from Alpha Co, 3rd Recon Battalion, Cpl (later Sgt) James McCartney (or possibly Mccartey) USMC. He was from Canada, spoke French. May have been a Sea Going Marine after Vietnam. Jim was the assistant patrol leader with Partyline-One 1-3 August 1967, Ashau Valley patrol. Semper Fi, Great Site!

Admin reply: Thanks for your post Bill. We will pass his name around to see if anyone can locate him. Semper Fi

Lance-Corporal Jonathan Peter Kmetyk was my step brother we grew up together since we were 10 till he joined the Marines . He was very proud to be a Marine . Till to this day we are in contact with Peter's Sargent of that day Nov.14/67 .we visit back any forth. There was other Marines that sent cards at Christmas to Jonathan (Peter) Mom till she passed away. The Marines are a close Semper Fideils

Admin reply: Hello Robert you must be very proud of your brother Peter as he was a true hero and gave up his life for what he believed in. His fellow Marines must have been totally devastated at not being able to recover his body. I know they must have done everything they possibly could and will never forget him.

Admin reply: Welcome Home Norm. You were one of the first troops in country at the beginning of the build up in Vietnam. I am sorry to report that the group here is Winnipeg is the last organized group of Canadian Vietnam veterans left standing. Over the years it has been attrition, age, PTSD, and Agent Orange that has decimated our organization.

I am a 17 year RCAF vet. I grew up with Hans Lorenz. We were close friends. Hans joined the US military and fought in Vietnam. He died there. I served in NATO and with the UN.; and am still alive at 74. I still miss him. If anyone can tell me something about Hans, please do so.

With respect to all,

Jim McKinnon

Admin reply: Hello Jim If you go to "The Virtual Wall Vietnam Veterans Memorial" (www.virtualwall.org ) and search Han's name you will you will find a story of Hans and how he was killed in Vietnam.

Good Morning Paul What I had assumed, was correct. In my PTSD meeting yesterday, the group stated that your Honorable service in the U.S. Military, automatically makes you eligible for VA Care n Benefits. Have a 'fun' day. :) wain

Admin reply: Thanks again Wayne, nice to know we can get some VA health benefits if we need to. I will make an appointment soon and get a few things checked. Have a great weekend!
