Message from his son: My name is Rodney McGaughey and my father Kenneth McGaughey served in 3rd Sqdrn 4th Cav in Vietnam from Feb 67 to Feb 68. I have a few of his records that the National Personnel Records Center has sent to me indicating he was in the HHT for a short period of time as well as Troops B and D. His MOS was a 63B Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic and he would have been an E3/E4 during his time overseas. My father and I were always very close which I'm sure is one of the motivations for me to serve 10 years in the army with tours to both Iraq and Afghanistan. My father passed away in March of 2011 due to complications with Parkinson's disease the VA finally contributed to agent orange. I am trying to put together a shadow box and scrap book for my kids so they can see him and learn about him but his time in the army is a time I have very little information about him. If anyone on your list who served with him has any information, stories, or pictures about his time in Vietnam that wouldn't care to share, I would be very grateful. My phone number, email and mailing address are all listed below and are okay to share with anyone who can help. I have a picture of him attached as well that might help someone remember him. Thank you so much for your help and especially for your service. Our nation owes you all a great debt. - Bowling Green Kentucky
