    Default Looking For 2 Alabama Vietnam Vets

    'Doc' Delrie, originally from Sonora Texas is looking for Boozer (father's name Clay) from Huntsville Alabama and James Sloan from Birmingham Alabama. Both were Regular Army in Germany but it was too damned cold there so they volunteered to go to Vietnam. Last known in 2/28 1st Infantry Division at Lai Kai Base Camp in 1967.

    Any help finding them will be much appreciated.

    zabasearch.com can sometimes help. It's not as good as it used to be. There are several James Sloan listed in and around Birmingham. If you have a middle initial and/or birth year, it helps.
    So the maples formed a union
    And demanded equal rights
    'The oaks are just too greedy
    We will make them give us light'
    Now there's no more oak oppression
    For they passed a noble law
    And the trees are all kept equal
    By hatchet, axe and saw

    Thanks for taking the time to look them up.

    I have exhausted all databases I can legally use to help and am hoping to get some FOGs from that era interested. I emailed who I thought might be Mr. Boozer but got no response, and there are enough James Sloans in the area to have their own zip code. I'm sure Mr. Boozer thought my email was a scam attempt.

    That's all the personal information 'Doc' Delrie had for the two guys.

    I have found buddies using zabasearch.com, but it's hit and miss. I would narrow it down by age and start calling.
