If you don't belong to the facebook page and can't access it, here is what Col. Lowe said about Miyares:
Clearly a successful businessman and effective speaker but claims regarding his service in Vietnam need substantiation. His name does not appear on a list of 3300+ former members of the 6-31st Infantry,claims to have been a sergeant who was moved around among various squads and platoons of that unit wherever he was needed during his month or so in the unit, claims to have been with a platoon whose members were all killed in an ambush in August 1968, and that he was evacuated from the field and discovered in a body bag at Lai Khe. Here's the problem:
6-31st Infantry was fighting near Can Giuoc in Long An Province in August 1968, around 85 kilometers (50 miles) southeast of Lai Khe. Medevac flights routinely took our casualties to the brigade aid station at Tan An, to the 3rd Surgical Hospital at Dong Tam, or to the 24th or 93rd Evac Hospitals in Long Binh, depending on the severity of their wounds. Those too badly wonded to be returned to duty would go on to the 3rd Field Hospital at Tan Son Nhut for stabilization and evacuation to the Philippines or Japan. It is hard to imagine a reason for any of our casualties showing up in Lai Khe, dead or alive. Lai Khe was the base camp of the 3rd Brigade 1st Infantry Division which had no interaction with our brigade and fought 40km or more northwest of Saigon in War Zones C and D. At no time during 6-31st Infantry's 2 1/2 years in Vietnam did any of our platoons suffer all of their members killed in an ambush and such an incident certainly would not have escaped notice by our members or failed to be recorded in our operations logs. The closest such incident occurred on 12 January 1969 but although every memberof that platoon has been identified by where he was that night and more than half survived, no one named Miyares was there. Urban Miyares' story doesn't align at all with our unit's history or Medevac chain. What's the real story?
