I was on wards 5 and 6 from Feb 70- sometime that fall. I spent the 2nd half of my tour on ward 1. Married a helicopter pilot from the 45th Dustoff I met at Ft Knox when he was patient! Still have a few friends I keep in touch with from the 24th Evac (Joanne Kane Halcomb, Susan Lodge Backs, Mary Reynolds Powell, and Carol Rogers Pitula.) The reunion in 93 was terrific but definitely topped by the dedication of the Vietnam Women's Memorial that fall. I strongly encourage people to read Mary Reynolds Powell's book, A WORLD OF HURT, which in part is about the 24th Evac in 1970. Barb Kautz

You were the greatest. I remember many a night pulling guard duty for prisoners in the hepatitis ward. I'm glad to see you're on the web. The pictures have brought back memories.

This was my 2nd tour of duty -- had served 15 months in Qui Nhon at the 67th Evac in 68-69. Despite the many difficulties of being in a war
zone, I've never regretted my 2 tours there. I learned a lot about life there & the experience changed the course of my life. When I returned home this second time, I sought out adventure, knowing that we are not guaranteed longevity. I'm now on perhaps my greatest adventure, having married for the first time 8 years ago. Last year my we returned to Vietnam to adopt our son who is now 19 months old. Ah, so nice to feel at peace!

My wife and I visited for 3 weeks in Vietnam in October of 97. The country was very different and we had a great time. It was wonderful to talk to the
Vietnamese from Hanoi all the way to My Tho.

I had a good experience at the 24th. Learned a lot about assisting the surgeons especially
Neuro surgery. We had great people in charge, LTC Ruth Webster, and Sgt Stormisky and others. Hope to hear from others of that time period and see some of you at the reunion in 2002.

Not everything in Vietnam was all bad - I brought home a prize named 1LT Cynthia Mason - and made her my bride.
I was a grunt with the 2nd Battalion, 5th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry Division. Those of us out in the weeds hold a special place in our hearts for the medical folks who kept so many of us alive. Thanx.

We're looking to put on a "REUNION"!! Pencil in your calendar for the weekend of April 12, 13 and 14th, 2002. It will be in San Antonio where the 24th Evac started from in 1966. I'm meeting with
Marti (Courson) Maron in a few weeks in San Antonio for a "recon" of potential sites. Its early but we've already heard from a lot of folks who are interested. Neither Marti nor I have done this before so bear with us and we're interested to hear from others who can help. Stay tuned. Also, let me know of your interest and how you might be able to help. SPREAD THE WORD! Excited at the prospect of getting together again, Ken Bowen

Great site y'all have. I was with the 720th MP Bn and the 557th MP Co...I pulled a guard duty at the 24th for American POW that had escaped from VC jungle camp...this would have been Spring 68. Thanks to all the Medical personnel...y'all saved a lot of lives!

This site is getting better everyday. Thanks Cindy. More and more former members and patients are checking it out. Ken Bowen is organizing a possible reunion in 2002.Thanks

I was air evac from Mekong Delta to 24th evac hos. I received gunshot wound at right wrist. Spent two weeks there and then shipped to Walter Reed, Wash DC. I remember an NVA troop in the bed next to me. He had no legs. I was taken very good care of. Thank you all.
