I am LTC Schungel's son. I visit this site frequently. I can still watch the video of my father over and over. Forty six years ago Lang Vei stomped into my (and my family's) life and it will always be there. Thank you Richard Allen and the other members of "The Team" for this site. All the Way!

With Respect,
Daniel F. Schungel Jr. (US Army 75-79)

I had the privilege of meeting SMG Dennis Thompson last Wed. Nov 13 2013. He approached me at Costco because I was wearing a Vietnam Veterans cap.
He gave me the web address for this site. I was impressed at the humility and friendliness of this
man. He accepted me without question, as a fellow
Vietnam Vet. and never asked my rank or mentioned that he was a SGM. It is my hope, that if I had been faced with similar circumstances while I
was in country, I would have aquitted myself even
half as well as he did.

I served with D company 1/8 1st Air Cav in Operation Delaware April 1968. The North Vietnamese must have worked their butts off staging supplies after Feb. We landed at A Luoi airstrip. Where was the camp in relation to the airstrip?

I am Capt Willoughby's nephew. I would like to thank you for your work on this. We need to get more stories of heros like these out in the public.

Thank you

I may be a young civilian but I have always done my best to find the truth behind history and the Vietnam Conflict is paticular. Thank you for protecting our freedoms and for protecting the people of the Republic of Vietnam, God Bless You and God Bless America.

I am the son of a Vietnam veteran who has spent much of my 37 years in life reading about and trying to understand a war that shaped my life through its affect on my father's life before I was born. I was in my early 20's when I first read about Lang Vei. I return to this point in history any time I feel overwhelmed by events.

This nation never gave adequate credit to those who fought in this war. Such statements are uttered all too often as a cliche. But may anyone who reads this know that the challenges, the victories and the hardships encountered are not forgotten by the generation which has followed. I personally work to learn as many lessons as I can from sites such as this.

What happened to SP/4 Young? I know he was a foundling member of the Peace Committee at Plantation Gardens POW camp and he turned communist.

Did he join the American Communist Party? Is he still alive in the USA?

What was his involvement with Jon Cavaiani in the POW Camp?
