I'm workin on my claim while I'm in a PTSD program and I'm looking for people who served in A Co from Dec 66 to Nov 67..I'm asking for any information or events that happened to us during that time....I have made contact with Robert Brown,terry damon and Mike glasford and we are getting together in April in Ga. They are supporting me in this attemptwith my claim. It would help my claim very much if I had one more letter of support. It's funny how the Gov. doesn't believe that Engineers can have PTSD and we weent through anything in Nam..I know i did and my friends also..I'm looking for any incidents on the roads or surrounding areas of our base camp.I need this info as soon as possible..I appreciate any help I can get and will assist any I can with theirs.....I can be reached at Martinbrynt@yahoo.com or call 413 387-8435(cell). It took me a few years to locate Mike,terry and Robert and it's been a long journey and I'm just trying to get home....Martin
I am writing in hopes of finding out some information regarding my father-in-law, Augustus Albert Edwards Jr. He served from 9 November 1964 until 8 November 1966. His records states that he was a 51K.
He was assigned to Delta Company 84th EBC from 31 January 1965 until 18 October 1965 at which point he was assigned to Delta Company 46th Engr. Bn. (Const). He was with the 46th EBC until 23 May 1966 and was then assigned to Bravo Company 589th EBC until 22 August 1966. After which he was assigned to Charlie Company 17th Eng. Bn. 2AD until 22 September 1966 at which time he was assigned to Delta Company of the same battalion until his discharge.
I have a news clipping that was sent to his local newspaper from S-14 W. Sohl of the 46th Eng. Bn. Co. D. It states he volunteered with the 82nd Helicopter Squadron while in Vietnam but was attached to the 42nd Eng Bn. His 214 does not show that he was with either of these units. Neither does it have the dates that he served in Vietnam.
His 214 states that he was in Vietnam for 1 year and 11 days. He was awarded the Vietnam Service Medal with 2 Bronze Service Stars.
If anyone could help me find information regarding my father-in-law it will be greatly appreciated. He has Alzheimer's and the family only has the information that's on his 214. The V.A. in Virginia where he now lives told my mother-in-law that they won't test him for Agent Orange because he can't tell them where he was while in Vietnam and when he was there.
