This is where we are keeping our miscellaneous history.  The war in Southeast Asia was fought by real people and they have history that includes their emotions, details not recorded elsewhere, and humor. In an effort not to lose this valuable insight we are stashing it here.  


-----------------A note from the web page designer -------------------


The patches you see below are all from


"Clicking" on any one of the patch titles will take you to that sections' Index, as it is on the FACHBCD. With just a very few exceptions (those titles printed in white) you wont be able to go any further. In fact you will probably be told " The page cannot be displayed". Clicking on the story titles that are printed in white will take you to the authors website where you can read his entire story.


I did not intend to make the FACHBCD available to you on line but just wanted to "wet your whistle".
