Documents on the River Raiders

21 July 2001, I also ammended the history to signify that the unit is in fact, Inactivated. Lastly, I finally decided to get off my butt and dfo something with this page. All of the douuments are back. 9 July 2000, my e-mail address has changed to: pirata@colonialpanama.com. Instead of trying to go through the thousands of pages that I may or may not have put a "mailto" in I have just changed the ones that I remembered had a "mailto." I am in the process of getting with the Transportation Corps Historian about other documentation on the 1097th, especially pre and post Vietman until the move to Panama. The music selection for this page starts slow for the first 45 seconds or so but it's a pretty good jam. Unfortunately none of the links have a link back to this page they only have a link back to the main page. This will change someday but not very soon. Enjoy!
