Welcome to D-Troop.com

Since February 2004, there has been a substantial gravitation to the site. We now have nearly 300 names and contact information for pilots, gunners, "blues", admin, maintenance and others, which now provide an avenue for many of our friends to keep in touch.

For the best information about the D-Troop 1/1 unit which served in Vietnam during the periods of 1968 to 1972, you've come to the right place. Nevertheless, all D-Troop members are welcome to share their information and be recognized as part of our elite unit. I welcome all feedback and additional information regarding the unit. Please bookmark this page and check back often for updates.
Don't forget to sign my guestbook and send me your locator information.


Welcome to the D Troop website. This website is intended to keep all our D Troop pals in constant touch. Many of us served and operated as a well-oiled machine during the Vietnam War, and our hearts were all touched by some of the bravest and most courageous soldiers of the time. Many Vietnam veterans would have put his life on the line to help his fellow soldier in time of need. After many years with absolutely NO contact with my Army pals, I decided to make this site. We have a great bunch of guys keeping in contact with one another. Many have also donated their photos, stories, documentation, memories, and much more over the years and I hope the trend continues. Tell your friends about our D Troop website. It remains to be a truly cohesive group of good guys that recognize the role we played in Vietnam. By wandering through the pages of the site, you'll realize we were a bunch of young kids with dedication and loyalty to our fellow soldier and most of all for our country. We will never forget our friends... all those that we fought along side and even more so for ALL the brave young men that made the ultimate sacrifice.

In the September 2019 issue of the American Legion magazine, I found new information about possible accepted disorders caused from Agent Orange exposure. AMERICAN LEGION NATIONAL COMMANDER CLARENCE HILL responded to VA Secretary Eric Shinseki's decision to increase the number of diseases believed to have been caused by Agant Orange exposure in the Vietnam War. He wrote:

We will continue to work with medical experts to explore connections between Agent Orange and respiratory disorders such as asthma, pleurisy, pneumoia and tuberculosis, as well as gastrointestinal diseases, liver toxicity, thyroid disease, homeostasis, endometriosis and others. It should be remembered that Agent Orange exposure was not limited to just 'boots on the ground' in-country. Veterans exposed to Agent Orange included blue-water Navy sailors, among others. They, too, deserve the care and benefits to be afforded other victims.
