I served as a young pvt at Quviet and was transfered to Bravo 1/9. I stayed with Tracks for 28 years. I retired and I miss that smell and sounds greatly.

Message to Mathew Ganley...
You may gain additional insight as the particular details of 2nLt Edward Jory's death in combat against the North Vietnamese Army by contacting our fabulous Battalion Historian - Hugh Connelly!
Hugh was a Radioman in Alpha Company and was with the 1st Platoon, Alpha Company in that combat engagement and has told me some of his personal memories of that day and what he witnessed...
Good luck!

Hello all. Maybe I can be of some help with your sword. I had been in the Corps about 3 1/2 years when I heard Ed Jory was assigned to another platoon in 1st Tracs. I did my best to go see him, however on the day he was killed was the day we went out on Patrol. He was 30 yrs old. When I got back here to Albuquerque, I met with his father who was the President of one of the biggest banks here in Albuquerque. I sat with him and told him he suffered no pain and was a brave platoon leader.
I went to High school myself with his younger brother Hoot Jory. I know where he is but his answering machine is always on and does not answer the phone. I can call him and leave a message, as yet I have not done that as he himself was anti-war. I am not sure as to how he would re-act, but I can give it a try. At worst it can be boxed up and sent to his only brother.

Our unit was presented a sword that belonged to the 2ndLt Edward Lewis Jory Jr,of the 1st Amtrac Battalion. We would like to honor this individual by telling his story at our Birthday Ball. All we know about him is who he was with, when (25Aug1967) and where(Quang Tri) he died, and that he was married and born in Albuquerque.

For those of you planning to attent the AMGRUNT RALLY, bring your checkbooks! Martin Johnson has the remainder of the HATS/DVDS and TAMPA REUNION SOUVENIR PACKS and will offer them to the first few AmGrunts willing to make a donation of $75 or more to the AmGrunts Memorial Wall Fund. Several of you have reserved sets for pickup at the Rally, and I'm not certain how many that leaves. I think it's about 6 or 7 left. You need to donate by check in order for it to get credited to our wall fund.
Even if you don't get the opportunity to receive the goodies in exchange for your donation, please consider making a donation anyway. We would appreciate the help!
