I was in the 24th from Jan 1975 to June 76. We managed the division's deployment to Germany for REFORGER and were also part of the Rapid Deployment Force through FORCE COM (although we never went anywhere). We were"non-Division" in WWII buildings way off the main post but it was great because we sort of did our own thing.

I was part of Co. D. 51st Infantry. We were first loacted in Nha Trang Vietnam as a perimeter Rifle unit., then moved to Cam Rahn Bay in late 1970 thru Aug. 1971 when I was lucky enough to go home. We were gunners on Convoys and yet I can't even find a mention of my unit .. wonder if we were simply attached to a transportation unit and thats why? I don't suppose it matters at this stage of my life but it would sure be good to know where I fell into the history of Vietnam other than just some unknown guy who manned an M60 machine gun and made no difference. Anyone familiar with Co. D. 51st Infantry at that time ..

"TO THOSE WHO HAVE FOUGHT FOR IT, LIFE HAS A FLAVOR THAT THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW!" I came upon your site while surfing the net and knew that the above statement would have special meaning for you. Vietnam has left us all with many memories of those with whom we served and those who didn’t make it back. I served with 3/22nd, 25th Infantry Division out of Tay Ninh as an infantryman. Fought the NVA on the slopes of Nui Ba Den twice with numerous firefights in and around the area bordering the Cambodian border. Remember your Christmas in Vietnam? Mine was spent on an ambush patrol near the Cambodian border. Awarded Purple Heart and three Bronze Stars with “V”. After 5 months in the field, I was pulled to the 93rd Evac at Long Binh to work with soldiers suffering from combat fatigue. Coming home was one of the most difficult parts of our tours. Over the last 10 years, I chronicled my tour of duty and the response has been overwhelming. There are presently over One Hundred 5 Star Reviews worldwide. It’s free to Amazon Prime members. Courage on the Mountain Thousands of Vietnam Veterans have proudly endorsed these memoirs. Please check out the website at with the accompanying introduction. It will make you proud for your service and all the men and women who served our country during the Vietnam war. I proud that you made it home brother! Thank you for your service and May God Bless!

I was a member of the 24th Transportation Company in Cam Ranh Bay 1968 to 1969. I made a lot of friends and memories while serving there. I was a wheeled Vehicle Mechanic and wrecker operator. I served with Ricky Lee Swift and I've often wondered where he is and how he is doing. I returned to the 24th at the beginning of my second tour in Qui Nhon at the HHC 223rd Avn Bn. I was awarded 100% disability for life from my time in country. I do hope that everyone from the 24th made it home.

Today, March 30, has been declared as Vietnam Veterans Day. I just want to say thank you to all my fellow 24 trans vets from Cam Rahn Bay. Hope you all are well. As for me, I had surgery for prostate cancer a little over 8 years ago. VA figures agent orange caused it. It came back in my bones about 1 1/2 years later and is now something I live with. Feeling great and the VA clinic takes good care of me. Classified as 100% and permanent. If you have any medical problems, don't be afraid to check with VA to see if they will take care of you. You earned it.

I just came across this article in the Reunions section of the VVA magazine about the 24th Transportation Co. I was taken by surprise. I do think about the 24th everytime I see a military vehicle but never thought of it being stateside or any other place but in Nam. Did the 24th originate at Ft. Riley? I was with the 24th Transportation Co., 1st Log. Command, Tuy Hoa, Vietnam (67-68) . It was a time to build on and to remember the good & bad but never thought of the 24th's origin. I couldn't help but to feel a touch of pride reading about the service and accomplishments of the soldiers in your 24th. Keep up your good service.**** When did the 24th help out an orphanage in Tuy Hoa ?

My time with the company was from Nov 71 to Apr-May 72. My branch was Infantry. I was the last XO and PBO of the 24th Trans at Cam Ranh Bay. At the end, CPT Randall Peters and I were the only officers left. I am the one who took the property book and supporting documents to Long Binh to complete the standdown of the unit. Since the USAF base at Cam Ranh had closed a day or two earlier, I had to fly to Nha Trang and hitch hike without a weapon back to the base. My new unit was Co D/51st Inf. I believe the 24th Trans Co was the last surface transportation unit between Newport and Qui Nhon to standdown. The 24th Trans Bn and the 124th Trans Cmd were already gone. Just before the Cam Ranh Army base was turned over to the Vietnamese, the few remaining Army units were relocated to the former US Navy facility on the west side of the Cam Ranh Air Force Base. It would be good to hear from anyone who served in the unit during my time.
