Old Reliable Newspaper


Page Last updated: 01/08/17 12:20

The "Old Reliable" newspaper files are large and will load slow.  However, they are worth the wait.  Be sure to check out Super Private.  Does any one have other issues?  Our goal is to post all issues while the 9th Infantry Division was in country. 

Special  Thanks goes to Charlie Taylor and Jerry Greenwood 5-60th Infantry, Bob (Mel ) Vargas, Recon 2-60 Infantry, Ed Reed B/2-60 Inf,  Lyle Taresh, C/6-31 Infantry, Wayne Blessing, A/2-39 Infantry, Joe Rambo, E/2-39  Infantry, Col Henry Jezek and Billy Reid 2-47 Infantry, Gene Richardson and CSM Donald Ailiff 2-60 Infantry for providing the issues below.

Update:  We hit the Mother Lode in 2016.  Another Special Thanks to 1st LT Michael Munzell, Headquarters & Headquarters Company (HHC) - 1966-67. LT Munzell originated the Old Reliable newspaper during his tour of duty in Vietnam.  He saved many issues and we have been able to fill in a lot of blanks.  Way to go Michael...!

Please contact Mike Harris, our Webmaster, if you have an issue that you would like to contribute.
