Sept. 30--Soldiers and airmen known as Red Hats and Red Markers reunited here Saturday with surviving paratroopers of the Vietnamese Airborne Division for the unveiling of a new monument at the National Infantry Museum & Soldier Center.
The veterans, members of the Airborne Advisory Team 162, helped train and fought alongside the elite Vietnamese unit from 1962 to 1973.
"The monument is the brotherhood of Team 162," said retired 1st Sgt. William D. Block, a 2010 inductee into the Ranger Hall of Fame. "We lost a lot of people, but the brotherhood lives on."
The ceremony, held amid the veterans' biennial reunion, attracted a large crowd to the Memorial Walk of Honor, including officers such as retired Lt. Gen. John LeMoyne, the former commanding general of Fort Benning. Retired Lt. Gen. Joseph W. Kinzer, who is president of the Society of the United States Red Hats, said the monument, two years in the making, "stands as a symbol of our service to our country when our nation called us to support a special group of airborne soldiers, the Vietnamese Airborne Division.
