Former B/2/17 CAV member Captain Ralph A. Northrop, now deceased, is being nominated for induction into the U.S. Army OCS Hall of Fame. We have a copy of his DD 214 when he left the army as a major in 1981 and know his individual medals and decorations, however we do not know what unit awards he was authorized. We know he was with B/2/17 CAV, 101 ABN in 1969-70 but not the months in those two years. If those are known by your organization please share those with me, or if you know what units awards/citations, etc. he is authorized please share those with me as I'd like to include them in the biographical sketch of Major Northrop. Ralph Northrop was a graduate of Armor OCS at Fort Knox as was I. Thank you.

Army helicopter nose art & names in VN is history. History is in our scrapbooks, photo slide collections, photo print collections, paper documents collections, in-country recollections, coming home experience, and in our selected memory. History, as an entity, is an unending book, with a beginning that’s time dated. Like it or not, many histories of the Vietnam War have or will be written, but they will be incomplete. It’s the nature of the beast. The percentage of its full telling will never be 100%. In fact, history is never complete. Any attempt to capture time in a bottle is nonsense. Mostly what gets told are the high points only. So, the best we can do then is to gather together all we know, saw and heard on the subject, and make it available to the public.

I was a LOH crewchief assigned to 25thDIVARTY at cu chi. We were not scouts like D Troop, but we flew in same ar as as D Troop. We were a single LOH with an M -60 and m16 as arms. Our job was the try and find NVA companies with intell from S 2. We sometimes had an artillary officer in front seat with pilot. Crewchief rode in rear.one day I was over at 725th Main. And was trying to find out how D Troop mounted their M60s.someone introduced me to Joe Ramey, a D troop crewchief in the scouts. He showed me how to hang their 60s on bungee cord in rear.
Sadly I heard Joe was killed in Cambodia in May 1970. I was shot down in Cambodia also but no one was even hurt.if anyone can tell me howJoe died, I would ld apreciate it. He was a nice guy.

I have a combat knife 14 inches long, Bowie type blade, engraved Sgt. Mark C. Abel, Vietnam (69-71), (Scout Plt) on one side and on the other it says B TRP/ 1/9th CAV., 1st CAV. DIV., "Head Hunter". It came into my possession through a pawn broker in St. Pete, FL. who knew Mark Able and apparently took care of him. I have no further information. I would like to pass this on and see that it gets some respect. Ideas?

Besides the last 3 digits of the "Aircraft Serial Number" what else was your in-country Army helicopter known as (verbal + painted)?
