The Americal Division Veteran's Association (ADVA) is in the process of preparing a new monument to be dedicated to the artillery units supporting the Americal Division in Vietnam. So roughly within the next two years there will be a dedication ceremony at Ft. Sill to a select group of units from WWII and Vietnam. I have started pulling materials together as the Vietnam era historian for our 3,000 member association. I have located reports and 4 issues of the 6/56th Bn newsletters from 1969. I have just started processing the newsletters into our data base this week. If you are interested I would like to share this information with those from the 6/56th Artillery. I would be interested in locating additional materials on the 6/57th Artillery. I am attaching the cover of the March 6, 1969 issue of the "Night Hawk". I am also attaching three photos of a Hawk missile I had taken over Ky Hoa Island when I had served as a helicopter crew chief. I have a few more and some articles with photos from our Division newspaper the "Southern Cross" as well as some articles from the "Pacific Stars & Stripes" about our LAAM unit.
