ALPHABETICAL

TO LISTEN TO GEORGE JONE'S 50,000 NAMES ON THE WALL

MACV-SOG

 I feel very privileged to have been associated with these brave men, some my friends and all my brother, I wish I had been standing and fighting with each one of them, to bring them home, I wasn't, and I grieve for each. Hopefully, I did contribute in some small way with my service with SOG!-Bill O'Rourke-paraphrase

A Note on Sources

The above named losses and narratives are complied from various documents, books, Official Records, and personal accounts. Some of the sources include SOG "MACV Studies and Observations Group" 5 Volume books by the late Harve Saal; Who's Who in MACVSOG by Steve Sherman; SOG The Secret Wars of American's Commandos in Vietnam by John Plaster; Reflections of a Warrior by Frank Miller; Vietnam Magazine; Green Beret Magazines; Green Berets at War, U.S. Special Forces in Southeast Asia 1956-1975, by Shelby L. Stanton; SFAHQ website, Special Forces Honor Roll, Internet websites; Telephone calls, email, and stories from Helicopter pilots/crews supporting SOG operations; individual SOG members; and family members; as well as my personal memory. the Virtual Vietnam Memorial Wall and another website I can find that has information.  Anyone with any additions or corrections please contact me so that the below memorial can be updated.  NOTE: There are errors abound and many sources have been crossed referenced to eliminate these errors.

The following quote is extracted from Maj John Plaster's Book: SOG, The Secret Wars of American Commandos in Vietnam and reflects both the intelligence gathering aspects of a reconnaissance mission to gather intelligence data and the ability of that soldier to fight:

"I looked up at the bunker in front of me and saw a khaki-uniformed NVA with a pith helmet, chest web gear, green Bata boots and an AK, Type 56, and no other identifying insignia. Then I shot him." -- Sgt Tony "Fast Eddie" Anderson, RT Kansas, 1971

As I worked on this project, many times I had to stop, my heart filled with pride, a lump in my throat, emotional pain filling my soul, bringing tears to my eyes. Always, avoiding the gazes of those who might come around so they would not know. Then I ran across a passage in John Plaster's book which says it all contributed to Bill O'Rourke when he was speaking of Mad Dog Shriver, I'll paraphrase it to fit the feeling of all our SOG brothers: I feel very privileged to have been associated with these brave men, some my friends and all my brother, I wish I had been standing and fighting with each one of them, to bring them home, I wasn't, and I grieve for each. Hopefully, I did contribute in some small way with my service with SOG!
