Rode the Army’s Green Dragon Thanks for doing a great job of letting others know of what we in the “Mech” units endured (“Riding the Green Dragon,” by Dana Benner, August 2019). I noticed that the story centers around the mechanized infantry units in the 25th Infantry Division. I have something to add to that story. There was another mech unit to include on that list, and that was the 2nd Battalion (Mechanized), 22nd Infantry Regiment. The “Triple Deuce,” as we called it, was originally a unit of the 4th Infantry Division. But because of logistics, the 3rd Brigade of the 4th Division and the 25th Division swapped division affiliation. I served with B Company, 2nd Battalion (Mechanized), 22nd Infantry Regiment, 25th Division, in 1970. I am pleased to see this article, as…

study finds errors in names on the wall

A recent four-year study has concluded that the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Wall, in Washington contains duplications, misspellings and other errors. The black granite wall, dedicated on Nov. 13, 1982, comprises 144 panels engraved with more than 58,000 names of those killed in the Vietnam War or missing in action and still not accounted for. Specifically, the Wall lists 58,390 names, but after taking the duplications into account, the total number of people listed is 58,276 individuals. The study was initiated by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, the nonprofit organization that built and maintains the Wall, so it could compare the names on the wall with databases of the war dead. “We needed to know exactly what’s on the Wall…warts, errors and all,” Jim Knotts, president of the fund, told The Washington Post. The…

cleanup of war’s agent orange legacy expanded

This past fall, the United States and Vietnam finished a joint project at Da Nang airport to clean 74 acres contaminated by the toxic chemical dioxin, a byproduct of the herbicide Agent Orange. Now the countries have set their sights 500 miles south to Bien Hoa, a town near Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) that, like Da Nang, was a major storage area for Agent Orange during the war. Loaded onto aircraft, Agent Orange was sprayed over the land to destroy jungle vegetation that could provide cover or food to communist forces. On the ground at Bien Hoa, mishandling of the toxin contributed to leaks, spills and improper disposal that contaminated the soil around the base and water used by residents in the area. Even now, a half century after the war,…
