Subject: Company C 19th Engineer Battalion (Combat)-Sa Huynh, Vietnam

I am looking for any LZ Lowboys who served in Vietnam with Company C, 19th Engineer Battalion (Combat) from July 1968 to July 1971. My father, David Nelson Boyd entered the Army as PVT. E-1 from Ft. Campbell, KY graduating class Co. B 10th Bn2b Bde on Feb. 1968. He was honorably discharged in July of 1971 as Specialist Four, Service number #RA 12968041. He received an Army Commendation Medal of Heroism, with a “V” Device for the act as stated:
“For heroism in connection with military grounds operations against hostile force in the Republic of Vietnam. Aug. 17, 1969 while serving as a member of a mine sweep operation in Sa Huynh, Vietnam the sweep came under fire from a company size enemy force, a three quarter ton truck serving as an ambulance was hit by several rockets and began burning then completely engulfed in flames .Exposing himself to enemy rockets, grenades and automatic fire he ran to the ambulance & retrieved the medical aid bags and supplies. Frank E. Ruggles Major AGC Adjutant; as ordered this day 29th of Dec., 1969”
He is retired and still lives in Ashland City TN. When he enlisted he lived in Nashville, TN. I am searching for anyone who served with him or knew him while he was in the U. S. Army, stateside or Overseas; Vietnam.
