I was CWO Orrin Dyers Crew Chief on Feb 3rd 1968. Some of the 4th DIVARTY Pilots would welcome me to fly with them with an M-60 that I had brought with me from my TDY door gunner duty with 4th Aviation, B Co. Orrin was not fond of M-60’s hanging on OH 23’s when he was the pilot. Feb 3rd was no different. I stayed behind. FAC Lt Larry Skoglund from the 1/8 accompanied him on this alleged 1 hour fire mission. Larry, although wounded severely was able to get the aircraft back short of the runway. Larry was the garbled voice that called in their situation. At that point he believes CWO Dyer was already KIA as he was shot in the face.

Ernie, I tried your posted email but my server could not find the address. I was assigned to Dak To from May 68 to Jan 69. I am happy to share my experiences and some photos with you on your site or in this blog. Let me know which you prefer.

Great webpage Ernie and Welcome Home.. Love the pics of Dak To, Ben Het and some of the other FSBs. Just want to pass this along to Chris Ross and any other 3/12 Infantry vets out there. There is a private 3/12 Infantry Vietnam Veterans Facebook group out there, and there are over 300 members, all with a direct connection to the battalion. I've shared the link to your website with them all, and I'm sure many of them will visit your page.

Just came across this site, and started reading what was written about Ben Het. There are quite a few errors in the section dealing with the Spring Offensive of 1972.
