New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

One other note I have seen a lot is theme/color related items. I know this is important to all of you but at the moment the most important thing was getting you back a functioning forum with as many features I can get you back from before.

Theme/color is something we can change but it the moment I do not have the time and resources to fix all of the issue and design the site. I did do some theme updates yesterday but it is very time consuming. Please just be patient with the forum as we get it back to as close as I can to what you had before.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

  • Airborne Jumps In Vietnam

    Out of curiosity, was there any jumps made in Vietnam ? If there was, I imagine it must have been pretty rough landing with that type of terrain to jump in.

    BTW.........I don't know if this subject was covered before or not, I've was away from this site for a while

      My worst jump story:
      My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
      As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
      No lie.

          The 173d Airborne Brigade conducted a combat jump during Operation Junction City.
          We are not now that strength which in old days
          Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
          Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
          To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

            True, and 5th SFG MIKE Forces did several, MACVSOG did several, elements of 11th Pathfinder Company did 12, and the French did more than all these units combined.

            But we've covered it all, I think, on more than one thread.

              Operation Junction City was the only major airborne op during Vietnam.There were a number of smaller drops mostly platoon sized Special Forces insertions. I heard there were plans for a division sized op after the failure of Operations Ivory Coast.

                Yes, Operation Junction City 173d Airborne, was the only major combat jump in Viet Nam. The 101st airborne when they arrived in country did a jump for President Johnson, if I'm not mistaken. It was not a combat jump of course; and that is the only parachute jump made by the 101st Airborne in Viet Nam.
