Searching for Bill Calhoun, who served in Vietnam. I have a helmet with his name written on the front. My family is from Northamptonshire, U.K. The helmet was given to us, probably to my older brothers, in the ’70s. Calhoun knew my mother, Rita Earl. I wonder if Mr. Calhoun or his family would like to have this helmet returned. Contact: Daniel Earl, firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking for Leroy (Lee) Whitehead, with whom I served at Keesler AFB and Norton AFB from 1973-77, in the 63rd AMS Squad in Norton. I think he was originally from Georgia but may have lived in California. Contact: Peter Donald Castello, 19 Houston St., Wakefield, MA 01880; 617-823-9468; email@example.com
I am an Italian journalist hoping to find soldiers who were drafted or chosen from draft lotteries for the Vietnam War. No commercial intent, I promise. I have been researching this war since I was 15, a very long time ago. I would love to talk to anyone in these draft categories. Contact: Bianca Cerri, firstname.lastname@example.org
Searching for my father, John E. Currin, who was in 3/26, India Co., from 1968-69. He was from Portland, Ore. He did not want to talk about being in-country, but I recently began researching and found he was in Operation Meade River. He received three Purple Hearts. He was passionate about helping other veterans and loved all his brother Marines. I read the Robert T. Jordan article in The Veteran about Operation Meade River, and I am hoping to find someone who knew my father. Contact: Nick Currin, email@example.com
Looking for information about Gerald M. Salter, who served with my brother, Lonnie Michael Holmes, in Vietnam in 1967. Salter was with my brother when he was killed by a mortar round on June 15, 1967. He was living in San Francisco when he wrote to my brother’s wife. I would like to talk to someone who knew my brother. Contact: Ross Rose, 574-360-4345; firstname.lastname@example.org
Searching for a veteran from Albuquerque, N.M., who was in Nha Trang or Danang. I think he was a diver. His name was Jim, but I can’t recall his last name. He invited me to visit him and his parents for Thanksgiving and gave me a chain with a Navajo cross. I still have it and understand how blessed I am to have received it. I think his father was either in the Army or worked for the CIA. I am French and met Jim in Vietnam in 1990. Contact: Arnaud Durand, email@example.com
Looking for two soldiers who served with me in Pleiku in the 4th Inf. Div., 1969. I gave them the nickname “Finance” but can’t recall their last names. I am from Alexandria, Va. Contact: Jimmy Osborne, 318-664-8163; firstname.lastname@example.org
Searching for Vietnam veterans from Canada. I am working on a book similar to Fred Gaffen’s Unknown Warriors, published in 1990. Contact: Daniel Cunningham, email@example.com
Looking for anyone who knew my father, Paul Howard Puckett, who was in the Army in Vietnam, 1967-68. He was in the Signal Corps and had a top secret clearance. Contact: Paula Brehm, firstname.lastname@example.org

Searching for Bryan Blake and Phil Ross, Chemical Section, HHC, 4th Inf. Div., 1969, and Floyd Richardson, doorgunner based at Camp Enari, 4th Inf. Div., 1969.
