  • Long Bien 1968 Los Angeles Deputy Sheriff

    FIREND OF MY IS SEARCHING ABOUT INFO. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU RECALL OR KNOW ABOUT THIS.

    The Department has received a letter concerning an article that recently
    appeared in a Vietnam Veterans Magazine. They are asking for any help
    that the list might be able to provide.

    In 1968, during a battle at or near Long Bien, a member of the 219th MI
    Detachment on guard duty along the highway. A jeep pulled up with an MP
    Colonel driving and a fully uniformed Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff
    in Class A uniform. There were two other jeeps full of Vietnamese
    National Police. This individual recently saw the same reference to this
    same Deputy in the article in the Vietnam Magazine. If there are any
    members of the list who might be able to shed any information on this,
    please contact me. I will be receiving a copy of the article which was
    sent to the Department and will be placing it on our website.

    No, I have no knowledge of him but will do some research through my library of Vietnam articles and magazines.

      It's interesting that I've found several references to the LA Deputy and always with this description:
      a fully uniformed Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff
      - same as yours. This leads me to believe the story has only one source so you might need to interview someone who was actually there for more information.
