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.

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.... Gary Griffin (more from KWP) Got some information for you, I believe it to be the correct Fisher. Fisher, Carl Nelson, Jr. Svc# 392-36-6858 US Army Rank Capt O3 MOS 1193 Tilden, Ne.

MR EDWARD P REGAN email@example.com 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.
