I found your website and looked through the pictures. It brought back memories of when I was station their Jan. 1970 - Dec.1970. I was one of the Desk Sgt. on the front gate and on Patrol. Good times.
Looking forward to the reunion, especially since my wife and I recommended Charleston. There is so much to see and do there you will surely be kept busy. A must see is Fort Sumter, the battery, great restaurants, among them SNOB, Husk, the Chop Hose, Magnolia, 82 Queen.
Is anyone ordering shirts or hats for Charleston reunion? I'm having problems getting an order placed. I called customer service at 3 Cord and *Mary* didn't know anything about the 630th reunion. Tom, Please check our Website for the latest information. Sam Harrison, MP and Webmaster
"TO THOSE WHO HAVE FOUGHT FOR IT, LIFE HAS A FLAVOR THAT THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW!" I came upon your site while surfing the net and felt that the above statement would have special meaning for you. From perimeter guard, wrestling rowdy soldiers to hazardous convoy duty the role of the MP's in Vietnam deserves more credit. I served with 3/22nd, 25th Infantry Division out of Tay Ninh as an infantryman. Fought the NVA on the slopes of Nui Ba Den twice with numerous firefights in and around the area bordering the Cambodian border. Awarded three Bronze Stars with "V" and Combat Infantryman's Badge. The cover photo on my site looks out the front window of a Huey onto the Black Virgin Mountain. My Christmas was spent on an ambush patrol near the Cambodian border. After 5 months in the field, I was pulled to the 93rd Evac at Long Binh to work with soldiers suffering from combat fatigue.
I was with the 720th MP Battalion in Viet Nam 270 to 3/71 and served most of it on the PBR's then later transfered the whole company from Dion to Fire support base Vandergrif where we led fuel convoys to Qhe San (sic). We have a reunion every 2 years and one coming up at the Crown Plaza in Crystal City VA (DC) this memorial day !! You folks should come !!
See you all in Charleston, S.C.
