Pinder Kaserne Barracks Yahoo Message Board Group

We are constantly reconnoitering the world wide web for new sites and
this one started by CSM D.R Hamilton is truly first class.
Check below in the Military section for Pinder Kaserne Barracks Yahoo Message Board Group
it's well worth the visit.

There is "plethora" of them and we will try to post the "Creme de la creme".

The 14th Field Artillery Regiment Association
Website for The 14th Field Artillery Regiment Association
Here is what the new website has to say:
"The purpose of the Association is to constitute an organization to bring together veterans who have served with or who are serving in any unit of the 14th Field Artillery Regiment, any predecessor unit of the 14th Field Artillery Regiment, and any successor units that may be formed from the 14th Field Artillery Regiment."

Brave Cannons
Website for The 1/92nd Field Artillery Association - Vietnam
In their own words:
"This website is provided for 1/92nd Veterans, their family members and friends, Veterans of affiliated units, and to all with interests in the 1/92nd. The purpose of this web site is to:
provide information; promote a common ground; research an accurate history; assist fellow
veterans and their families and to support veterans issues."

Camp Holloway, Army Aviation in the Central Highlands
The above website seems to has moved, but I am not sure.
Try this: Camp Holloway, Army Aviation in the Central Highlands instead.
Author's Statement and Purpose:
     "Prior to creating this web site and publishing these photos there was not a web site designed for Camp Holloway anywhere on the internet.  This web site began in late 1996, then moved to the
present provider in early 1997 before it was submitted to the search engines for listing, and later a guest book and a photo album were added."

I could present a long description of this site but their mission statement says enough.
* Collect and preserve the knowledge, experiences and personal reflections
   of combat veterans of all eras.
* Serve as a centralized repository for information pertaining to combat leadership
   and the profession of arms.
* Promote camaraderie, knowledge sharing and a "teacher-scholar" relationship that spans the
   entire spectrum of American fighting man, from the experienced veteran to the newest recruit.
* Promote combat effectiveness within the U.S. Armed Forces.

This is the official website for the U.S. Army
It is loaded with information for the Army Veteran and a bunch-o-links.

Vietnam Veterans Home Page
The page I like on their site is the Army Lost and Found Listings. It is a constantly updated list
of postings by visitors trying to make contact with an old friend they knew or find information
on the whereabouts of someone/anyone who knew their veteran family member.
You are quite possibly the one who can answer their questions. You can help them.
I have found people who have helped me and I have found old members of the 6/14 looking for anyone who knew them.

Veterans Information Sites

We could use some links for this section. If you know of or find some that you have
found beneficial, send them my way

Department of Veterans Affairs
If you are a Veteran then you probably know of this site. But if you do not and you have
questions relating to health benefits and services, compensation and pension benefits,
vocational rehabilitation and employment services, home loan guaranty services,
life insurance programs, educational benefits, etc. this is your starting point.

Disabled American Veterans
Treaties are signed and the battles of nations end, but the personal battles of those disabled in war only begin when the guns fall silent. These men and women must struggle to regain health, reshape lives shattered by disability, learn new trades or professions, and rejoin the civilian world. At each step, they need help to help themselves.

For three quarters of a century now, that aid has come from the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), a nonprofit organization of more than one million veterans disabled during time of war or armed conflict.

Formed in 1920 and chartered by Congress in 1932, the million-member DAV is the official voice of America's service-connected disabled veterans -- a strong, insistent voice that represents all of America's 2.1 million disabled veterans, their families and survivors. Its nationwide network of services -- free of charge to all veterans and members of their families -- is totally supported by membership dues and contributions from the American public. Not a government agency, the DAV's national organization receives no government funds.

Combat-Related Special Compensation
Simply put Combat-Related Special Compensation (CRSC) provides military retirees a monthly compensation that replaces their VA disability offset. This means that qualified military retirees with 20 or more years of service that have "combat related" VA-rated disability will no longer have their military retirement pay reduced by the amount of their VA disability compensation. Instead they will receive both their full military retirement pay and their VA disability compensation.

The 2004 National Defense Authorization Act, Combat Related Special Compensation was expanded to include disabilities incurred as a direct result of:
• Armed Conflict
• Hazardous Duty
• Conditions Simulating War
• An Instrumentality of War

Unlike concurrent receipt, CRSC will not be phased in over ten years. Once a military retiree has been determined to be qualified they will receive their regular retirement pay plus an additional sum based on their VA disability rating.

Find out more about this benefit program for Army Veterans and other service men and women at the Department of Defense website New Retired Benefits Program page and/or lots more information from the U.S. Army Human Resources Command - U.S. Army CRSC Division

The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration National Personnel Records Center has provided the following website page for veterans to access their DD-214 online at http://vetrecs.archives.gov
This may be particularly helpful when a veteran needs a copy of his DD-214 for employment purposes. Please see the details below.
Point of contact is Lyn Krout, linda.krout@us.army.mil, DSN 458-1755 or commercial 410-306-1755.
NPRC initiates online records request procedures. The National Personnel Records Center is working to make it easier for veterans with computers and Internet access to obtain copies of documents from their military files.
Military veterans and the next of kin of deceased former military members may now use a new online military personnel records system to request documents. Other individuals with a need for documents must still complete the Standard Form 180 which can be downloaded from the online web site. The new web-based application was designed to provide better service on these requests by eliminating the records center's mailroom processing time. Also, because the requester will be asked to supply all information essential for NPRC to process the request, delays that normally occur when NPRC has to ask veterans for additional information will be minimized.
Veterans and next of kin may access this application at http://vetrecs.archives.gov.

Dusty's Poetry Home Page
Poetry written by Dusty - Army Nurse Corps, Republic of Vietnam
If you have never read any of Dusty's work, prepare to be moved... nuff said.

I really don't know what to say exactly... this site is one of the most interesting collections of information on the entire culture of Viet Nam (sic) both past and present and it is all presented in
one of the most aesthetically pleasing and well designed sites I have had the pleasure of
discovering. It does take a while to adjust to the navigation of this site but once you get the
hang of it you will be able to spend hours, and I mean hours, learning just about everything
there is to know about the country that you spent time in. Viet Nam is a most remarkable place.
Here is a quote from the site:
     "Since the inception of Viettouch in 1996, our website has been undergoing a tremendous amount of growth spurts that has led to its current status.
Viet Nam is a multidimensional society with 54 ethnic groups embodying vast cultural, language and musical diversities. True to nature, our entire group couldn't be more diversely passionate and dynamic as far as our backgrounds, philosophical values and approaches. The wonderful common link is that we're all proud of our heritage in our own ways. We're in a unique position as Vietnamese diaspora which helps to further diversify our perspectives on presenting the multifaceted Viet Nam. Our multiculturally influenced views couple with the affection for our heritage have created an exciting and challenging foundation for the Viettouch team and its modus operandi.
     We're enthusiastic about our project whose collaborations span thousands of miles, across countries and national boundaries with the help of technology. We hope you will enjoy your visit to our ever expanding website."

All I can say is you really should take the time to explore this site. If you have ever wondered if you
should return to Viet Nam for a visit, after seeing this site, I don't know how you could resist.
