Observation Squadron Sixty Seven
The Navy's Observation Squadron Sixty-Seven (VO-67) existed for just a little over a year, a total of 500 days, from February 1967 to July 1968. The "Observation" in the name is meaningless. It hid, at the time, what was a highly classified mission. The "67" stood for the year it came into being. VO-67 was a vital part of project Muscle Shoals. The mission of the project was to detect, classify, hinder and penalize the North Vietnamese Army infiltration into the South. Steel Tiger was the code name for the Ho Chi Minh trail in Laos. IGLOO WHITE was the code-name for the technologies associated with the project located at NKP and operated by USAF Task Force Alpha.

The Combat Soldier in the Vietnam War
My Father Sergeant Frank A. Gollub(foreground) and his friend Specialist-4 Alan F. Lucas near the Cambodian border, War Zone C, July 1966. Both soldiers served in Charlie Company 2/27th "Wolfhounds" of the 25th Infantry Division. Lucas' name is on the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington D.C. The song that is playing in the background is "California Dreaming" by the Mamas and the Papas. It was a pretty popular song in 1966 and it has alot of meaning to my Dad and other soldiers who served in Vietnam.

This is dedicated to all Veterans, and the men and women who served in Vietnam. This site is here to honor all those who served, the POW-MIA'S, wounded, and those that gave their life in Vietnam. Especially to the men of Bravo 2/27 who I served with from November 1968 until August 1969. In August 1969 I was reassigned to HHC and transfered to Nui Ba Den. I also had three cousins who served in Vietnam, two of which was there the same time I was. One served with the Manchus, another in Da Nang with the Navy. My other cousin and I went to Vietnam on the same plane and he served with the 9th Infantry DIvision. He and I never saw one another while in Nam but met coming home. We both came home on the same freedom bird and we were both stationed at Ft. Carson and we both ETS the same day, we also enlisted the same day. I reamined on Nui Ba Den until I caught the freedom bird back to the world in November of 1969. Upon my return to the world I was stationed at Ft Carson in Colorado with 5th Infantry Division.

The Vietnam war was the longest in our nation's history. Two American advisors were killed on July 8, 1959. Although 1959 is marked as the beginning of the war on Panel 1, East wall, a Captain (Army) Harry C. Cramer was killed 21 October 1957 during a training action.The last casualties in connection with the war occurred on May 15, 1975, during the Mayaquez incident. Approximately 2.7 million Americans served in the war zone; 300,000 were wounded and approximately 75,000 permanently disabled. Officially there are still 1,870 Americans unaccounted for from SE Asia. With the addition of ten names added in 2004 the total is now 58,245 names listed on the Memorial Wall. Approximately 1200 of these are listed as missing (MIA's, POW's, and others).
Vietnam was a savage, in your face war where death could and did strike from anywhere with absolutely no warning. The brave young men and women who fought that war paid an awful price of blood, pain and suffering. As it is said:
"ALL GAVE SOME ... SOME GAVE ALL"
