Captain Dowell Robert (Bob)Garcia
Bill Wellman
I'm writing this for a fellow Vietnam vet. My friend, Robert (Bob) Garcia, was with the U.S. Army, 101st Airborne, 1st Brigade, 326th Engineer Battalion. From July to September, 1967, Bob was in the bush with a Captain Dowell of the Dept. of the Army, Commonwealth of Australia. At that time, Capt. Dowell had been with the Army approximately 15-18 years. Bob says Capt. Dowell was a life-long soldier who had served in the Malaysian War. He can remember the Capt.speaking of his home just outside Sydney. He also remembers the Capt. being "fluent" in Chinese, and getting promoted in rank shortly after their recons together. Bob has a vague memory that the Capt. might have lived briefly in California, with his wife (possibly a Californian). I realize this is not a lot of information to enable a search, especially since we have no first name for Captain Dowell. Would you have information which could assist us? Thank you for your time and consideration. Respectfully,

I served with an Australian Captain by the name of Goode at the 159th Transportation Bn. at Cat Lai, Vietnam.  This was in 1970-71.  I don't recall his first name because we did not address Officers by their first name.  I would very much like to find out how he has faired through life and if he is doing well.  We liked this Officer very much and would love to hear from him.  I only know he served with us for 6 months and then another unit for 6 months.  We were a transportation unit that did nothing but offload ammunition ships on the Dong Nai river East of Saigon.  Any help locating Cpt. Goode would be greatly appreciated.   Thank You!

Hello and Merry Christmas to my mates from down under
I served in Long Binh with the 199th LIB. Our operational area touched the Australian area and my group spent a lot of time together on the same radio net. We visited the 547th Signal Troop at Nui Dat in 70 and brought a truckload of American beer. The 547th patriotically despised the beer but somehow it disappeared. I don't remember how that happened. I was invited to go on a recon flight with the 547th and have never forgotten the mission.
I will never forget the privilege I had of serving in RVN with the friends that I made from Australia. I am proud to have been connected with such fine troopers if only tangentially. I am thankful for the connection that we had with the 547th. Thank you 547th for the plane ride of my life!!
If Des Williams is out there, drop me a line.
