I like for everyone associated with our organization to sign our
guestbook, but lately some of the scum of the earth have been trying to
use our guestbook to sell drugs and things. To solve this problem when
you sign the Guest Book it will ask you to enter ABCDE and to enter a code.
The code only shows up if you have cookies enabled. And your entry doesn't
show up right away. I have to approve each of the entries before they appear.
If your one of us I'll approve. Thank you, please read on.
Just to make sure that everyone can get to all the links on this
page I'm going to put a copy of all the links on this page right here
in this paragraph.

Here is a little info on our organization. We have over 4,000
current address, many from you former unit.
The 145th Combat Aviation Battalion (VIETNAM) Association is a Fraternal
Veterans Organization filed under IRS Code section 501(c)19. We are established
for the purpose of holding reunion, writing unit and battalion history,
and to re-establish the camaraderie of the Battalion, units and detachment
associated with the 145th CAB, (45th Trans Bn in the early days). We are
trying to locate everyone who served with the 145th Combat Aviation Battalion
and the 45 Transportation Battalion in Vietnam, the units listed below:
HHC, 1st, 18th, 25th, 68th, 71st, 73rd, 74th, 114th, 117th, 118th,
119th, 120th, 121st, 135th, 147th, 184th, 190th, UTT-68th-197th-334th,
213th, 242nd, 335th, CoA/82nd, CoA/501st, 57th Med Det
8th, 33rd, 57th, 81st, 93rd, 339th
And all Detachments of these units.
Many of these units served with the 145th Battalion for just a
short time in Vietnam. To truly re-establish the camaraderie of the units
we welcome, and hope for, everyone assigned to these units to join with
us. To us a unit is a unit no matter what other Battalion it may have been
assigned to before or after serving with the 145th.
After I send you a sample newsletter you may wish to join
our Association for just $15 a year or $200 life membership. Regardless,
please send me an e-mail so I can send you a newsletter and also have you
on file so your friends can contact you. Jim Bodkin email to:
