My name is Lisa Lark and I am a teacher at Edsel Ford high school in Dearborn, MI .

I am also a historian and writer.

In my research, I found records that show Spc. John C. Wells served with Det B-50, C Co, 5th SF Grp, Special Forces and died in a vehicle accident on 3/22/68.

I was wondering if there was a way I could get in touch with those who may have served with or known Spc. Wells during his time in Vietnam.

The Map Room:

Area maps of the camps are posted at random as I locate them. Any help in placing the camps is greatly appreciated. (Am having particular difficulty finding IV Corps Camps on the maps.)

If anyone has any information about SF Camps in Thailand, let me know and I will attempt to locate the camp and post them.

BTW: The maps were extracted from Jim Henthorn's Vietnam Vet page: All rights reserved. To view complete set of high res maps of South Vietnam and Laos visit Jim's web site. He's in the process of scanning and posting maps of N VN, Thailand and Cambodia.

(If you're a map junkie check out: Ray's Map Room. Vietnam areas of Operation. Lots of maps and historical information.)

Good day pardner;

I recently returned from a business trip to Saigon. This was my first time back since 1970 when I was an FO with 3rd bn 5TH Marines in SW of DaNang. Never having been to Saigon it was not the flashback time I remember from the....Well war stories who needs 'em. 

I had a customer translator whose father was a translator for A431 Co. B 5th SFGA (A-431 Cai Cai) and had a letter of reference signed by A Lt Joe Beets the XO

Nguyen Van Chan evidently did well for Lt. Beets and after we left spent a few years in the tiger cages then was able to find menial work to keep his family alive. He died 3 years ago of a stroke. His son, Now the district manager of Unilever, knowing I was a US Marine Vietnam Vet as is proudly displayed on a  backpack patch gave the attached reference letter to see if Lt. Beets was still alive. He wants some more information on his father. The son, Nguyen Tri Than was born in 1978. Surprisingly 80% of all Vietnamese were born after 1975. He works in the Cu Chi Industrial park. How strange is that.

So lend an old Marine a hand and see what you can unearth. 
I have contacts in the Corps big Brother was a Colonel after Khe Sanh mustanger but have no SFG contacts.

I was a photographer in Vietnam 65 - 69 and am researching the fate of  the  journalists and photographers that went missing in Cambodia.

I am trying to find anyone that can remember going in the field with  Sean Flynn or Dana Stone.
Moc Hua, Ben Het & Ha Thanh are some that I know of.

The Nat'l League of POW/MIA Families is attempting to locate photos of the 1,728 Americans still unaccounted for in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.  Would you be able to ask your members if they remember the following men, have a photo or have any suggestions as to where we may be able to find one?
 
James Lawrence Taylor - lost 10 Mar 66
Samuel Almendariz - lost 12 Jul 67
Bruce Raymond Baxter - lost 9 Nov 67
Samuel Joseph Padgett - lost 10 Apr 68
Anastacio Montez - lost 24 May 69
 
All were Army and all were 5th Special Forces.  I have a limited amount of additional information if it would help.
 
Any assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
