    HI All,
    I’m an Australian Vietnam Veteran (Army 36 years)- and Siginter since 1963, I served in Baria in 1969 as the Int LO. A Viet linguist, I’ve published books on D440 and D445 VC Battalions – free to read on the Internet, and am currently completing one on the 33rd NVA Regiment. I’ve accessed 11ACR Lessons Learned etc, but would appreciate any data on 33rd NVA comms etc. Have visited Vietnam and chatted with 33rd NVA veterans. Am currently in contact with the veterans of the Australian Task Force’s 547 Sig Tp (former Nui Dat SIGINT colleagues) on a range of matters.
    Best wishes, Ernie Chamberlain

    Just a note to let someone know at the 409th RRD website that one of your troopers is in pretty bad shape. I was notified by his daughter just a couple of days ago that Denny Boster 05H20 (1969-70) had a massive stroke about a year and a half ago and is not doing well. Thought I let someone know. I was with Denny in Okinawa and was also and 05H in Phu Bai @ the 8thRRFS (68-69) and another year with the 265th RRC at Camp Eagle with the 101st Abn. Div. (70-71). Keep him in your prayers.
