Pasqual (Pancho) Ramirez
I recieved a notice in June 1966 to report to my local draft board on July 26, 1966.I got married on July 19, 1966 I know most of you are going to say what was he thinking.Well I was making sure my Wife Irene would be waiting for me when I got out which of course she was.

I took basic training at Fort BlissTexas. I then went to Fort Huachuca Arizona for Radio school and was there until January 1967. I got orders to report to Fort Bliss again and was assigned to the old Biggs Air Base.I remained there until April 30th. Where I recieved orders to report to the Oakland Army Depot for assignment to Republic of Viet Nam on May 20,1967

I spent one of the worst years of my life there but I also met some of the greatest people I have ever known to date.Thanks guys for the memories and for just being there.

I am making this site to honor all Viet Nam Veterans, KIA's and POW's
At this time I would like to thank some of those great people I mentioned above.To some great friends and brave soldiersThank you.
