Mike McConnell

Over the years there have been monthly collages. Most saluted different contributors to the Album. This new forum is just to keep the collages and remarks about them from being totally forgotten.

Mike McConnell

The latest photos sent to the site are from Mike McConnell of Charlie Company. The original dates for the photos were all in 1968 according to notes... but some of these guys in the photos must have made it into 69 as well. And if Mike McConnell is pictured in any of them I don't know.

His album is here:

Great photos, brings back memories. The lower left photo, why does he have the 9th ID patch on
his right sleeve, current unit goes on left side.... 2nd tour maybe??
Upper left photo, rifle on his lap appears to have collapsible stock, short barrel, and large flash suppressor,
certainly not standard issue. And is that cardboard box an "SP pack", it was a box with free cigarettes, shaving gear,
writing materials, and other misc. stuff. I don't remember where/who they actually came from. Or it may just
be a "care package" from home....... :D
