    67th Maint Bn (DS) 66-68 -Mark J. Hillman

    I am trying to find any information on my father, Mark Jeffrey Hillman from Brimfield, Ohio. He was in the 67th Maintenance BN 3D in Vietnam. His MOS was 64B20. Unfortunately, he passed away 20 years ago when I was 17. He never talked much about Vietnam and only told me that he "peeled potatoes" when I would ask. I do remember he loved to watch the vietnam movies though. We watched Heartbreak Ridge a million times.

    The only thing I remember from him is he talked about agent orange and taught me "Anh yeu em yeu lum" and "laidai" (forgive my phonetic spelling) which he told me meant i love you too much and come here, respectively...He also told me that he slept through a bombing.

    If anyone remembers him or can lead me in the correct direction, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you all for your service!
    God Bless,

    Natalie I was a British serviceman so cannot really help you in your quest for information.
    I can say though that quite a few US serviceman who served in Vietnam pass through here who may be able to help you.

  4. Natalie, Ma'am!

    I am, as of a few days now, "looking in to" the matter. There is however a detail I need to correct, and which Does have a baring on chanses of success in the search:

    The unit your father served in, the "67th", was most likely a "Company", and not a "Battalion". In other words, he was within the "67th Maintenence Company", which was attached as a seperate company to specifically the 101st Abn Div. The company's period in Viet Nam, was from December 12 1967 to January 6 1972. (Administratively however, the companys "parental unit" in Viet Nam, was another unit. But I will explain that later on...).

    The fact that your fathers unit in reality was a more or less "independent" unit within a Division, and thereby also "size-wise" as small as a single company, unfortunatly somewhat decreaces the chanses of locating anyone "online", whom served in the 67th Main Co. This, since "seperate companys" tends to not create a "unit-website" of their own, and instead seemingly rely on association-websites of the Division it was attached to. I have however managed to locate a few "posts" by men whom served with the 67th Main Co. That however being on other internet-resources. I am however not clear on wether they actually knew specifically your father or not....

    Info (not much, but...) I gathered so far, I however do whish to arrange in a "presentable order" first, before sharing it with you. As of yet, it all is in a bit of a "haywire" in a text-document on my computer. I also whish to check a little more, to see if I can not find more than I have so far.

    Just wanted to let you know, that "I am on it" so to say. Will contact you again, at later date.


    Sincerely
    A.B

  5. Natalie,
    When you wrote this "67th Maintenance BN 3D" what does the 3D stand for/mean?

  6. A.B,

    Yea I know that this will be hard to pin down. I'm not sure that it was the 67th maint. company though, but you know best.

  7. Natalie, Ma'am!
    Firstly, I do wish to apologize for time past, since initial contact. Certain matters and circomstances have kept me unable to relay the below information to you, earlier than today. Unfortunatly, some of those circomstances are due to my own fault, by just being laps-minded regarding making copys or not to portable/external harddisks....

    I was unfortunatly not able to find much I am affraid. But what little I have found, is as below.

    Initial explanation needed, before continuing to actual searchresults....

    The 67th Maintenence Company, was in a strictly administrative way, a part of the:

    26th GS Group. ("26th General Support Group").

    Which in turn was a part of:

    1st Log CMD. ("1st Logistic Command").

    In a strictly physical way, the 67th Maintenence Company was attached to the 101st Abn Div. This may perhaps seem as a rather confusing and uneccessary way of doing things. But that is never the less how it was and is, and how things where and are done, in many military branches.

    Allthough above listing is more than just "a little old", since being noted as of 1998, a further person-search may hopefully yield addition and more current/valid contact-info, for mr Connolly. However, after having done a brief such, it actually seems as the contact-info (telephonenumber) still is valid, for mr Connolly! He evidently still today has the same telephonenumber, as he had in 1998!

    In above link, search for "67th Maint" (without quotationmarks).

    (Tip by A.B:
    When result displays, to more easily find entrys of interrest, do as this: click on "-" and do a text-search on page by entering "67th Maint" (without quotationmarks). This way, entrys for unit of interrest will be more easily located on the resultpage, rather than to have to scroll and read on the page, until "eyes bleed"!
    End tip by A.B).

    message:
    I am trying to help my husband, Robert "Dale" Wondercheck - possibly known as
    "Lil Buddy" or "Tiny" - He was in Vietnam August 1970 thru February 1971. He
    was with the 67th maintenance, and stationed at Camp Eagle, attached to the
    101st. Very soon after his arrival in Nam, he became a Company Officer jeep
    driver. He traveled with ammo convoys, and one particular event seems to be the
    root of his PTSD problem. He remembers mortar fire on the convoy going around a
    corner in front of him (some place in Laos), he remembers a flash, and the rest
    has found a buried place in his mind. He does remember driving back without the
    convoy or any other escorts by taking a short cut through rice patties in North
    Vietnam, trying to get back to Camp Eagle. If anyone remembers this event or
    remembers him, please e-mail me so I can print notes off for him. He will be
    going into a PTSD program in the near future trying to find himself during that
    6 month period in Vietnam. Any and All h!
    elp or contact will be appreciated!
