|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.

|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!

|Des Williams 547 Sig
Macomb, Mi 48044
|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.
