We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Subject: Re: 444th Engineer Detachment?

My name is Jim Churchwell, I was with the 444th Eng Det at An Khe from 12/66 to 12/67. I was part of the original group that moved the concrete batch plant from Qui Nhon to An Khe. We set up the batch plant and poured the original concrete runway so C130's could land at An Khe. I don't remember much else about that experience, in fact, the only name I can remember is Sgt O'Brian. I think the only reason I remember him is because I thought it odd, a Mexican with an Irish name.:) Anyway, I was thrilled to come across this website. I thought that when I left Vietnam, I didn't want to remember anything about it. Now that I am in my senior years, I'm wishing I had kept in touch. Maybe I can through this message board.
