Images of Vietnam - 1969
Chuck Clarke had eight and one half months remaining of his service time when he was shipped to Vietnam.   He spent six of those with Alpha Battery on #4 Gun and as a driver for CPT Hoffman working on 6/27th Arty civic action projects including the An Loc Girl/Boy Scout Troop. His remaining time was with Service Battery hauling supplies in convoy up Hwy 13 to the various 6/27th Batteries.  I think you will find his photos interesting, especially his convoy photos.  Check them out.

Adrian Gravelle's Vietnam - 1965-66
Adrian Gravelle was the FDC Officer with Charlie Btry, 7/8th Artillery in 1965 when he and several other officers were transferred to the 6/27th Artillery in Ft Bliss, TX.  The 6/27th had been recently alerted for movement to Vietnam and needed to fill out its roster and needed officers and cannoneers.   Adrian made the voyage on the USNS General Gordon and shares photos of that trip.

During his initial months in Vietnam he worked out of Phouc Vinh as a forward observer and as a liaison officer in the 1st Brigade, 1st Infantry Divisionís Tactical Operations Center/  In early 1966 he was eventually assigned to Service Battery  6/27th as XO. 

We are pleased that Adrian has agreed to share many of his photos from his time in Vietnam including the building of Service Battery's compound in Long Binh, Service Battery convoy photos as well as miscellaneous other photos and documents from 1965-66.  They are a great addition to the website and add to the history of the 6/27th Artillery in Vietnam.  Our thanks go out to Adrian for sharing his memories from Vietnam.
