I was in Vietnam from Nov 68-July 69.
I have copies of many orders, combat art, some photos, etc.
I am originally from Flint, Michigan and came to Vietnam from Fort Benning,
Ga. as an 11B20 and was assigned to the mortar platoon (That carried no
mortars) as a radio operator to the Platoon Sargent. My MOS was changed to
11B40. I think I may have spent 1 day training on a mortar.
I also was lucky enough to get out of Vietnam on one of the first fights to
Hawaii in July 1969.
I had a varied assignments:
Started out carrying the radio for the Platoon Sargent.
Later followed the Company Commander (Captain) to Battalion S-2:
Assigned to a Med Cap unit as an S-2 representative.
Also had to "Fly" in a small plane one night per week circling the base
camp looking down for incoming mortar fire.
Later assigned to a MACVI Unit in Dong Tam and carried a radio for a MACVI
Lt on joint operations with American troops, and operations with only
Vietnam troops, etc.
Fall in. Answer up. Be accounted for. Post a memory,photo, greeting or question. If nothing else post that you are still alive because some of us are likely to be glad you did.
