  1. These are really great pictures.

  2. usastruck

    Thanks Pat…

  3. Hey just curious if you would happen to have any more pictures of Greg Peffer? He is my father’s brother.. if you had anything at all, it’d be much appreciated. Thanks! 🙂

    • usastruck

      Kara, I only have two pictures of your uncle Greg. One with him ready to jump on a lift bird to be extracted and the other where he’s in the elephant grass on a recon mission.
      This is the one where I’m not 100% sure it’s even him…

      BTW…he was a great guy!
      Rob

  4. kara

    Thank you Rob! I really appreciate that, wish I could have met him.

  5. Robert Andrews

    Kara I was with your uncle Greg that day. I stopped to see your grandmother in the 90s and you were there. You can ask your dad about me Bob Andrews

  6. Sonny Boles

    Great Photos. Thanks for sharing them. These are the Blues I remember.

  7. Sonny Boles

    Robert I should have said that these were the type of Blues I would want to remember. I had a bad experience with the Blues in 1968/69.

  8. usastruck

    Sonny, were you with the Blues when Pat Bieneman was Blue India?

  9. Thank You for sharing these pictures. Dave Roger is my cousin and I could not be prouder. You guys are heroes to me.

  10. usastruck

    Dave was one of our platoon sergeants and he had respect of all of his men…

  11. robert stiteler

    curious if you have anymore pics of johnny stiteler, he is my uncle and any pics or info you can share about him would be great he never really said much about it but from what i can see i am sure you guys saw your fare share of some shit……thanks Bob Stiteler

  12. Walter Maude

    I am the guy with the monkey on his arm and I am guessing that the picture was taken in January or February ’71.

  13. George M. Carter

    I SERVED WITH THIS UNIT 1965-66 , I WAS A TRUE BLUE,RODE , HEADHUNTERS,SEND ME ANY INFO ON THIS UNIT 1ST 9TH RECON.65-66

  14. Billy Porter

    Neat pics! You have anymore with Bob Porter as he is my dad. My boys love looking at these! Thx!

  15. Danni Randleman

    I think the picture you have in the helicopter with the 4 men (the third one from the left) I think is my dad, Robert Florez (Dutch), not Gilbert Ortiz.

  16. Robert Florez

    Any pictures of Robert Florez (Dutch) also he is trying to find those he served with Thanks

  17. JD

    Great photos and site. Thank you. Curious if anyone served with my father, Lee Dorner? I believe he served with the 1/9 Cav (C unit?) 1970-1971. I know he has photos from this time. I would be happy to pass them along.

  18. Lynn s jenkins
