August of 1968. Something happened first half of the month

Postby Niner Alpha » Mon Mar 17, 2014 2:05 pm

Does anybody remember a shake and bake E5 with only a few days in the company being dusted off unconscious with no apparent wound in August of 1968? Do you remember this event maybe connected with some contact immediately before the dust off?

Were you in Alpha Company and present the day in August when either Espanza, Turner and Schroeder were KIA? Do you remember a dust off at about the same time of an unconscious but unwounded E5 new guy? We think this the most likely Company.

Were any of you in Charlie Company at the time and remember such an E5 dusted off during the same time frame of the first two weeks in August of 1968? Particularly in connection with others who were combat related casualties?

Were you in ANY 6/31st company in August of 1968 and remember such an event in the first half of that month?


If anybody remembers, post here in this string or email niner@6thofthe31st.com If anybody thinks they remember this man, it is important for several of us to know,.

I think it is going to take Colombo to get to the bottom of this case. :roll:

One response from a mass email to Alpha company guys of the time .....not me doing it..... has produced one response. Not good for the person needing remembering. But the case continues. Maybe the incident responded to wasn't the one the subject of the investigation was involved with. ...although logically most probable in time and incident.

Stay tuned for more obfuscation, smoke and mirrors on my part...this is a serious witch hunt.....kinda serious anyway... :roll:

I think there is enough evidence gathered .... that's not showing here... to take this out of the global post category.
