Mr Barker,

  I would like to know how I can access your Casuality Database.  
  
 I am doing research into the case of my Father, Capt. Joel R.Birch 
U.S.A.F., who was lost while serving as a crewmember on an AC-130 
Gunship.  His aircraft, tail #56-0490, was downed near Pakse,Laos on 
Dec.21,1972. Two crewmembers were rescued from a total of 16.  All 14 
other crewmembers are offically "accounted for -KIA- Partial remains 
recovered".  

  Please let me know if you can provide any assistance,
 
                              Charles L.Birch   Houston,TX.

Subject: Carl Fisher, KIA
To: tbarker@kwp.org

Hi, I am having a problem with my on-line service. I hope this gets 
through.
I am researching the death of my cousin, Carl Fisher.  I only know his 
name,
no servive, dates, etc.  I am the family genealogist and was wondering 
if you
could give me any information with just the name.

I was told he was KIA in Vietnam and buried in Vietnam (but doubt that).
Looking forward to your reply.

Thanks in advance....

MR EDWARD P REGAN

Mr. Barker,
As a hobby, I put out a newsletter to men who served with
D Company, 2nd Btn, 8th Cav, 1st Cav Div from 1965 to
1972. So far, my mailing list is about 450 who served in
the Company from 9/65 to 6/72. I have a listing I call the
"Honor Roll," with names of Company members who are on
the "Wall." The list is far from complete. Is there any way
I can find the names of KIA'S of men who served in my
Company? I am especially interested in the listing for:
May 10, 1972 when one entire Platoon, the Company Com-
mander and his two RTO's were killed in a chinook heli-
copter crash. I would appreciate any help you could give me. You are 
doing a fine job with your web site. Check out
our site at: http://pages.prodigy.com/AIRCAV
Thanks. Ed Regan
----contd---
Ted,
Keep an eye on our D 2-8 webpage (you can click directly off Simon's 
Vietnam page). I'm going to send Mike McGhie an updated
"Honor Roll" of D 2/8 in tomorrow's mail. There are 50 names from 
1965 to 1970. Mike wants to post it on the web site. Stay tuned.
Keep up the good work. By the way, do you have any historical 
information on the Battle of Unsan in Nov 1950 when the 3/8 Cav
got wiped out; the 2/8 Cav lost about half; and the 1/8 Cav held the 
back door? There is an 8th Cavalry Regiment Association whose
Secretary lives in Cleveland. The group is mostly Korean War Vets. Ed.

5th Cavalry, 3rd Squad, Troop C

		KIA Quang Tri 30 March 1968

Any information or referrals would be most appreciated.
