William McDavid was in our squad. 1st Squad, 1st Platoon, Charlie Company.  Mac was hit in a fire fight when we were sweeping an area around Long An.  Mac was was a good guy.  He was alot older than us.  We were shy of twenty years old and Mac was like 27 years old, but when it came to skiping across the rice paddies he would keep up with us young guys.  He was a good guy I was proud to have him by my side  because I knew Mac would be there when the chips were down. It was a honor to have served with him. God bless him.
