Our Stories



Many personal stories about life in the 5th Maintenance Battalion in Vietnam are already on the internet at the battalion web site.  You are invited to read those stories and see the many pictures that go with them at that site. It will definitely be worth your time and effort.  Chalet Eagle in Vietnam has many things about the battalion as well. But the focus in this particular section for now is primarily about the 560th Light Equipment Maintenance Company (Direct Support). For this web site is not only meant as an additional source of information for the battalion. It is also meant as a partial personal history for the family of the undersigned.  Our many thanks go out to those who have now or will have their stories and pictures about the 560th here.  A special thanks goes out to Greg Chew of the battalion web site for his continuing help with many things that have been borrowed from his site to make this site more complete.
