The photo is of then 2LT Tim Maude (left), circa late 1967 or early 1968, participating in the dedication of the 199th Light Infantry Brigade headquarters at Camp Frenzell-Jones, Long Binh, Republic of Vietnam. 2LT Maude was the 199th Brigade Adjutant and was reading the dedication citation. In the photo as well is the 199th Commander, BG Robert Forbes (center).
The 199th established its first and only Brigade Main Base, or BMB, several klicks northeast of Saigon and Bien Hoa called Camp Frenzell-Jones. The BMB was named after two of the Brigade’s early combat casualties from Alpha Company, 4-12 Infantry, PFC Herbert E Frenzell and SPC Billy C. Jones. The camp consisted of 513 acres and included fixed and rotary wing runways. The camp was also across the road from Ho Nai Village, which was a main enemy infiltration corridor into Saigon (source – Camp Frenzell-Jones).
The dedication plaque at Camp Frenzell-Jones read as follows:
2LT Maude went on to achieve a stellar 35-year Army career and attained the rank of LTG. He became the Army G1 in August 2000. He was killed in action September 11, 2001 during the terrorist attack on The Pentagon. Throughout his Army career, LTG Maude always said that his highest priority was taking care of the heart of the Army, both Soldiers and their Families; a job he loved with great passion. LTG Maude was first and foremost a Soldier. His peers remember his usual introduction as, “I’m Tim Maude and I’m a Soldier.”
The photo of 2LT Maude was provided by COL (Ret) Wayne H. Morris, AG Corps Hall of Fame, Class of 2014. COL (Ret) Morris served in Vietnam with LTG Maude in the 199th Light Infantry Brigade.
