Rackstraw’s Vietnam commander, retired LTC Ken Overturf (4/25/18): “With the ‘Basic Cryptography’ Army manual now in my possession, we have doctrinal validation of the process that (code-cracker) Rick Sherwood used to decipher all of these messages. In addition, DoD records show Rackstraw learned this coding process at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, in a Special Warfare Operations Course in 1968.

Addendum from Organizer Thomas J. Colbert (8/12/18): We knew from the start there would be skeptics on our team’s method of code-breaking.

Before algorithms, apps and Apple, there was interpretive code — secret mind-meld messaging only understood by the bullet-ducking young men sharing the sleepless nights, putrid smells and guttural screams of hell and back.

Project Left Bank was one of the most classified intelligence-gathering units in the whole Vietnam War. And like other units in theater, veterans Ken Overturf and Rick Sherwood’s code-speak was culled from their dangerous lessons learned, countless soldier memorials, endless surveillance, and off-duty, drunken chatter. It was private mumbo-jumbo that only their particular group of soldiers in 1969-70 could understand — along with pilots like Rackstraw, radioing in from above.

That’s why the enemy, and later, the puzzled FBI, couldn’t crack it.

If you want to truly comprehend interpretive coding, unplug your computers and smart phones, stop talking to academia under 60 years of age, and find a veteran who still remembers real VR. Your bible for this tour is a 200-page code manual from 1950, put together by the very brightest men and women in the U.S. Army — at link below. Once you’ve absorbed it all, climb into a fox hole or co-pilot seat with us. Then we’ll talk.
