I finally got a photo of my wife's biological father (she never knew nor had ever seen him). See below: Some of his bio is below: Jesus P Ramirez Master Sergeant PERSONAL DATA Home of Record: Los Angeles, California Date of birth: Saturday, 12/15/1928 MILITARY DATA Service: Army (Regular) Grade at loss: E8 Rank: Master Sergeant ID No: 19329649 MOS: 21B40 REDSTONE Electronic Mechanic LenSvc: Between 20 and 21 years Unit: ADVISORY TEAM 100, MACV ADVISORS CASUALTY DATA Start Tour: Monday, 04/17/1967 Cas Date: Thursday, 02/08/1968 Age at Loss: 39 Remains: Body recovered Location: Gia Dinh, South Vietnam Type: Hostile, died outright Reason: Gun or small arms fire - Ground casualty ON THE WALL Panel 38E Line 037 More info was available on his service record (e.g., Bronze Star and Purple Heart in Korea, etc.) Naturaly he is a hero to me (but not to my wife - he knew of her but refused to have any contact). Here are my questions: 1) I looked up BIET DONG QUAN and its history and found out that he was a Ranger / adviser to ARVN troops. How common was it for the advisor to wear the patches and insignias for the ARVN unit on the US military uniform. 2) He was with "ADVISORY TEAM 100, MACV ADVISORS" when he was KIA, but since I don't know how long before his death the photo was taken, could this have been a previous assignment? Or would his association with BDQ been consistant with his final assignment. 3) Any other interesting info would also be welcomed to help fill in the blanks in our knowledge.
