A request regarding SP5 David Lee Wright, A Battery 1-14 FA, 1969-70:

" I am assisting my friend to find information concerning her father, David Lee Wright, that served in A Btry, 1-14th FA on LZ Bayonet from about June 1969-June 1970.  Specifically, he and 11 other soldiers were awarded the bronze star with V due to their response to an incident, we think, in April 1970.  The awards ceremony was on LZ Bayonet on or about May 24-26, 1970, with a Brigadier General being the presenting officer.  He was accompanied by a CW2 Buono.  There was a mix up on names and the orders meant for David Lee Wright actually had another soldier's name on them.  That soldier also had the last name Wright.  CW2 Buono told David Lee Wright that it would be corrected; however, David Lee Wright PCSed/ETSed in June 1970 and it appears the paperwork was lost (or never done) in transition.  David Lee Wright was a tow truck operator.  He was a SP5 but serving as an acting jack SGT.


He and his daughter are trying to find folks that might have a recollection of the incident and/or the awards ceremony to help him get things corrected for the record.


We'd appreciate any information that you might be able to provide. "

If you can provide any information regarding this request, please contact Chris White at cjwhite@fhu.edu.

From Chris Jensen:
I was an Army photographer with the 221st Signal Company and part of a four-person team at Kham Duc when the sappers attacked in August 1970.
We were in the position where the Quad 50 had been located.
I believe we were just in front of Bravo Battery of 1/14th.
Couple of reasons I'm asking.
1) I have a few photos people might like. I'm happy to share them if people would like copies.
2) I also have film of the aftermath of the sapper attack. Not very pretty, but some people might be interested. It has been posted on Youtube. You can find it by search for something like sapper attack kham duc 1970.
3) Since it was posted some relatives of the dead sappers saw it. They are asking for help in locating the grave. My recollection is that the bodies were dumped in a bomb crater way outside the wire. A few guys from the 155 battery have been helping.
We're not very fond of the Vietnamese government (apparently a lot of Vietnamese are not either based on a story today in The New York Times) but these are just relatives.
I've attached a map that some GI from Kham Duc drew a long time ago. It was apparently sent to the VVA and they sent it along to the Vietnamese government. But some of us think that the place he marked as the gravesite is off and our X is more accurate.
Can any of your guys help?
This might encourage the Vietnamese government to continue and accelerate helping find our guys.
I also have some of my photos available at a dropbox if anyone is interested. They can be downloaded by clicking on the links below:

My name is Larry Gates and I am looking for my infantry company's FO, 1st LT Graham Allen (Atlanta GA). He served with me in Co C, 5th/46th Inf Bn, 198th BDE, Americal Division (Chu Lai) during January/February 1971. He would probably remember me as 'lg'. We were in a fire-fight together while on a benign water patrol. He may be able to help me with a VA claim.
His RTOs were Marcus Lutz and Don Garcia. If anyone knows the whereabouts of any of these men, please let me know.
Kermit Dean served with C Battery, 6th Battalion at An-Khe in 1965. He was with Edward Joujon-Roche, the first  Battalion KIA. He remembers serving with PettyJohn from Georgia, Goodwin from Pennsylvania, SGT Latin, SGT Peoples, Wood from Kentucky, and Whitaker, a policeman from Los Angeles.

Tonya Warren writes:
My father's name is Alfred Lawrence Rice.  He went by Lawrence while in the army.  He served in C Battery, 6th Battalion 14th Artillery in 1963-1964. He needs to find a gentleman he was in a truck accident with while he was there. He desperately needs a list of the gentlemen who were in his unit.
He has written several letters to the National Public Records Center in St. Louis Missouri and has not received the information he needs. He only wants a list of names of the men who were in his unit in hopes that he can find some of these men.
The accident happened in late 63 to mid 64 on the army post at Fort Sill. The gentleman my father was with pulled maintenance on a truck and they took it out for a test drive. The truck got out of control and turned over in a field. My father said he believes the gentlemen was a PFC like him. My father went before a board a few hours after the accident. Thank you again for taking the time to help us.
If anyone remembers Lawrence Rice, or remembers the accident Tonya describes, please contact her at al_tonya@bellsouth.net.

I recently purchased a belt buckle that reads: SGT 1st Class Robert J. Martinjak, RA 16335402, Motor SGT, A Btry 14th AFA, Chicago 23 Illinois. I was wondering if any information could be provided about this and about the man? tomhanah@yahoo.com  {Webmaster Note: His serial number is close to mine; so probably went into the Army thru the Chicago induction station in the late 1950's, and based upon the 14th AFA, was probably with the 14th Armored Field Artillery at Ft Hood, Texas.
I was in A Battery 6-14 at Pinder Barracks, 1973-Oct 1976. I am looking for an old friend. I unfortunately forgot his name. He was the only welder and fabricator for 6-14. He was located at the end of the motor pool in his own shop. Can you help me? I have been trying to find out his name for years.
