Brief Trip Report

Glad to be back Niner..... Well this trip was quite different in that I arrived on a Friday and Tam and I had a wedding ceremony on Sunday. There were approximately 350 people at the wedding which included a four course meal and enough beer and rice whiskey to float a ship. This thing lasted all day...

Re: 6/31 KIA List

I would like for us to accept this as a challenge. A picture and a personal comment for every one of our lost comrades. Maybe Bruce Swander can help us on this. I hate to see even one of these men with simply an impersonal comment as to his death.

Re: Question for squad leaders and Plt. Sgts

Ok Niner....help me out...what was a "blooker". In my platoon everyone (usually even the Lt) carried 200 rounds of M60 ammo. We even carried 4 M60's...one for each squad. Of course, the gunner and A-gunner carried more than 200 rounds each....along with extra barrels. When we set up, every...

Re: Recondo Badges

Ron, Yes I remember the badges. In Mid 1969 the brass at Dong Tam got real picky about the way that we field troops dressed when we came in from the field. As you probably remember when we got to VN we all had names, rank, etc on our shirts...but as time went by, when we picked up clean clothes, we ...

Re: 6th Battalion 31st Infantry KIA Listing

Chuck, John (Doc) Aldrich was my D Company, 3rd Platoon Medic when we first arrived at Vinh Kim in the summer of 1969. He was officially assigned to HHC company since he was a medic. He was wounded by a booby trap in Dinh Tuong province. At the time, it looked like a $1m wound that would get him hom...
