The pictures below, all of which were taken during the war in Vietnam, were sent by Pat Noonan (A/2/327th 1965-66... he was Capt. Furgeson's RTO during Trung Luong). Pat, Danny Little (C/1/327th 1965-66) and Rick Salazar (A/2/327th 1965-66) have been above and beyond helpful and supportive of this web site since the very beginning.
 
Words cannot express my gratitude and appreciation for their support, and for their service to this country.
Thank you Pat, Danny and Rick. Never forget.
