unit history information
for 326 MED 101 ABN

For date 681031

326 MED 101 ABN was a US Army unit
Primary service involved, US Army
South Vietnam
Location, Camp Eagle
Description: The Air Ambulance Platoon monthly newsletter reported that all the old people (meaning those that deployed with the unit) have just about disappeared. On 8 Oct there was a fly-by for SFC Allen Williams, the last of the old "50th" to leave. They mentioned that the 'air ambulanc Seabees' were at work again. They built a battalion mail room and a new hot water shower. The 101st PIO covered the platoon on 54 hoist and dustoff missions for 10 days. SP4 Bigolow "Big" somehow fell off a porch in the Signal Platoon area and dislocated his shoulder. This eventually required his evacuation to CONUS. With the 1st Cav moving south, EAGLE DUSTOFF not only took over coverage around Camp Evans with the 3rd Bde but also 'liberated' Camp Evans of some materials. They reported their area as from Phong Dien (North of Camp Evans) to the Hoi Van Pass into Da Nang.
