A Company 1969 – 1970
Dates in country 7/21/69 to 7/20/70. I was sent to the 9th INF. Apr. of 70. Ran convoys into the Parrot’s Beak area of Cambodia. I was sent there with Smithy. I believe his first name was Lyle. We started Basic together, AIT and 2/327 2nd platoon together. We were even together for a short while at FT Carson. Lost contact with him there.
