Not exactly sure if I read or just heard that some Cubans fought against us. Were there Chinese fighting us as well. Youíll have to forgive me as Iíve forgotten some things that may or may not have been on tests.

Any others besides Russians and North Vietnamese?

I don't know who ALL fought against us, but I had a relative, gunny Sgt., who told me his unit had South Koreans who "assisted" his unit in Nam.

I still remember him saying they were MEAN BA's and were ruthless with no mercy in their actions.

He survived several tours in Nam just to see his days end from a Hookers pimp in New Orleans that tried to rob him "during the act." He was always a wild one and a true American Bad A.. that met his end from a pimp...shot twice in the chest....man oh man, you never know?

R.O.K.'s Republic of Korea, Well trained, disciplined and brutal. Mean BA's is an understatement.

Have an uncle who fought in Vietnam. He was telling how messed up he was after returning to the States. At some point had to haul bodies on a landing craft. That wasnít the worst of it of course. He did mention Russians and things that arenít in history books. Things that soldiers were forbidden to write back home about or mention at all in any form of communication and detail. You just werenít supposed to tell anyone back home what was really going on.

I was in Cambodia in May and June 1970 when Nixon sent the troops in to search and destroy for large weapons caches along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. We were ambushed and spent three days pinned down by a superior force. When we finally broke their assault we found two dead Chinese advisers who had caused us numerous casualties from inside a bunker just outside our perimeter.

A Cobra gunship finally made a direct hit on their bunker. I was amazed at how big these guys were. Six foot and 180+ lbs. I'll have to give them credit. They were warriors who fought till the end.

We ended up finding a large cache of weapons and supplies that would have been used against Americans.

My uncle was a LRRP in Vietnam he worked with the Australians a lot and said they would repel upside down to see who could stop the closest before hitting the ground. He said they were some tough dudes. He didnt trust any ARVN troops.

Sad to think it won't be too many more years when we see the Nam Vet's disappearing like the WW2 & Korean Vets have.

God Bless 'em all!!

Yessir, the South Koreans were some BA's in the bush, but was good friends with some. Still have a patch from ones uniform. Trading patches was a sign of friendship. They seldom took captives.

This is pretty interesting. Keep it up. Love learning about all the stuff they aren't allowed to put in the history books.

Our interpreter was a ROK Ranger and yes he was a bad dude. He really hated communist and he was a good friend. After one action we captured 2 Chi Com doctors at the same time we captured a cache of medical supplies donated by Berkley Collage, Cal., USA.
