Vietnam 2nd battalion
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.
