B, D Companies 1968

Jimmy, a.k.a. as “The Jolly Green Giant,” humped the 90mm Recoilless Rifle (with two rounds) into the A Shau Valley. Suppose it was because I’m 6′-8″? Lots of reinforced concrete bunkers there that an M-72 LAW couldn’t penetrate. Was hit in the August air strike and made my way home.

Now living in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas, close to my kids and grandkids.

Just after Basic in 1964
