WELCOME
to the
"DELTA RAIDERS"
D. Co. 2/501st Infantry
101st Airborne Division

HOME PAGE

Delta Company has the distinct and proud honor
of being one of only two Infantry companys in the Vietnam War to have
"TWO MEDAL OF HONOR RECIPIENTS"
Sgt.Joe Hooper and Sgt.Clifford Sims.


The following is from notes made after the first major engagement of the The Delta Raiders during the Tet Offensive of 1968 by
D Companys first commanding officer,
Capt. Wayne McMenamy "Raider 6".

"From the soul that hast given you life, you have honed your skills well, proven your gallant spirit and moulded a character of strength and the willingness to show a compassion and love for your fellow soldier.
With your blood you have forged a tradition of valor and pride and through this a brotherhood is born.
Thus, you are bound forever, one to another, by this, your baptism of fire.
Arize Raider, no longer the bastard child"

PK17 (Outside Hue) 15 Feb.1968


The picture below of the original Delta Raiders was taken at
Ft. Campbell, Ky. in the fall of 1967, shortly before leaving for Vietnam. Every man in the unit was a jump qualified "PARATROOPER", but heavy casualities would soon bring and end to that proud distinction.
Sgt. Hooper is top row far right, Sgt. Sims is 3rd row up, 7th from left, yours truly (Sgt. Mount) is 5th row up, 10th from left.
