The database page for Timothy Holster
I have recently discovered what a heroic battle the men of Charlie Company, 2/18th, fought on 11/01/66, ten men were killed in action on that day alone. My brother Tim was killed that day, I never knew what it was like. I have been on websites and message boards for the 1st Infantry Division and have just now begun to understand what it was like in Charlie Company the summer and fall of 1966.
I served in Vietnam as a sentry dog handler with an MP unit in 1969 but could only see the infantry from a distance. Now, at age 53, almost 40 years after the battles at Dau Tieng (Operation Attleboro), my sense of pride for my brother and his comrades is greater than ever. Until I read the words of the men that were there I could never fully understand the greatness, the courage that was in my brother. I finally have begun to replace my feelings of loss with a sense of pride that I will carry forever. Thanks, Tim.
