The things you remember. The SMELL, the hook unloading 13 1/2 stretcher after Nui Ba Den got hit. Puff and Spooky taking turns over Tey Ninh east.Showing up at delta tango with a case of booze apiece, and leaving the next morning with part of a bottle each. Makin luv to mother earth while the rockets landed next to you. The light show when lightning hit the perimeter and sets off the claymores. The high when you got mail, and the down when you didn't. Cookin with C4 or JP4( the only use I ever found for the canned bread).

Iam still looking for a friend, Bill Spicer. He was wounded while standing with me and a couple other guys at LZ Mary Lou. A mortar round hit about 30 ft away and got him in the back. I was hit with 3 pieces, but my flack jacket stopped them, Bill was not wearing his.

He was medivac'd out, that was the last I saw of him. His name is not on the wall so I know he survived.


Edit::: Fast forward to today 10-30-15. I found Bill. A TV production company I contacted about 5 years ago located him. They put me in touch with him on the phone. I plan to see him soon. He lives about 7-8 hours away from me in Ca.




Congrats, now you can "Talk" to an old Friend...
