Dear Tiger Force members, When I was a police officer my new partner was a guy named Montford DeSouza. Him and I got along great. I am a military history buff and love listening to our vets especially when they are true stories. One day at lunch Monty as we called him told me he was in Vietnam and a member of Tiger Force part of the 101,i never heard of them at the time so I continued to let him talk.( of course I am going to check his story out to see if he is telling the truth). so he tells me about a battle he was in in which he took shrapnel into the bridge of his nose from a NVA grenade,that also burned his eyebrows off,gave him a flash burn on his face and the guy next to him had his foot hit by shrapnel.He told me the name of the NVA regiment but i have forgot it.I asked him was it in the jungle like in the movies ,he said no it was a wooded area and the NVA were above them throwing grenades down on them. My good friend and LE partner has sense past on and I do miss him. I myself have never been in the military but I hold our military in high standing and I shake the hands of our vets(who have hats on) and active duty when i see them. In looking at the fallen 101 Vietnam vets I came across a PFC named Steven Harman Floyd KIA 2-24-1966.His death date is my birth date. I am having two bracelets made up, one of my friend Monty and one of PFC Floyd in their memory and service to our country. I have one question; Does anyone out there who served with Tiger Force remember Monty and has a picture of him when he was in country? Please email me the pic(s). THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
NOTE FROM HANK: AS ALWAYS BE CAUTIOUS WITH CONTACTS THAT HAVEN'T BEEN VETTED, HOWEVER IF YOU SERVED WITH D'SOUZA, HERE IS A GUESTBOOK ENTRY. THE EMAIL ATTACHED TO THIS IS: "suddenstrike44@hotmail.com"

In 1966 I sent toys over for the Vietnam children to a Capt. Wilford A. Phelps.  He was senior advisor captain in the infantry..He sent me a wonderful thank you note in  oct. 1966 ...I was going thru memorabilia and found this letter and was wondered what happened to him..I saw a Captain by same name received the silver star for his actions on Nov. 4 , 1966..that was given in1976 and the capt is now a major...would like to know how he is doing...the letter he sent was wonderful and made me feel like I was doing something to help. I had several members of my high school class who were serving...I am now 68 and would love to know more about Wilford Phelps....thank you

Some associates and I are having a Vietnam Living History display September 7th at the Don F. Pratt Museum on Fort Campbell, KY.  We would be greatly honored if any Vietnam Veterans were able to attend.  Hours will be 9:30-4:40 Saturday September 7th.  We want to show our appreciation to those who served in the Vietnam War.

I don't know why, but the face and memory of Sp/5 Cintennio, our senior medic from June to December, 1966, keeps coming back to me lately. He went on R&R for Christmas to meet his wife (I think) in Hawaii, and never returned to us. I was told that he died of Blackwater fever while on R&R. He treated me on 10/6//66 and told me I needed to be med-evaced. I argued, but he won despite our rank. I've looked for him on "The Wall" website several times, but can't find him. I don't know if I have the wrong spelling for his name, or if those who died for "non-hostile" reasons aren't listed as casualties. He damn sure died for being with us, and should be counted just as if he'd taken a 7.62 AK round through the heart.
This is probably crazy, but does anyone besides me remember him and know more about him? I'd like to tell whoever he left behind how good he was and what he meant to me and the other Tigers.
Thanks.

My name is Denise Wynn I am Ray Wynn's wife. I am writing for information from anyone that might remember anything about Ray's injury that he got from a B-40 rocket when he was in B Company, 1/327. I am hoping he talked to someone in Tiger Force about what happened.  He needs proof from a witness who heard about it or maybe was there. I have been trying to get a Purple Heart for him and the V.A. doesn't recognize the injury. Right now he is in the James Lovell hospital in Chicago to help with his PTSD .  I talked to him so far he is doing good.  Anyway if you have info or remember send me a letter by email you can use Ray's Emailor mail it 13792 S Cottage Rd  Barbeau Mi 49710   Thanks everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!    Denise

Hank's note:The VA doesn't need a Purple Heart for the veteran to receive care or to rate at 100% for PTSD. Ray had plenty of experiences in both B company and Tigers to adequately cover that issue. We need some buddy letters either of the B-40 incident with B Company, or any other firefight, mortar or ambush experience with either Tigers or B Company, that anyone remembers Ray being in the middle of. Anyone who does have input, contact me for format of "buddy letter".
