The picture of me was taken at a hospital in Cam Ranh Bay where I was recovering from Malaria back in August 1967. Actually, it was taken a couple of days before being sent back to my unit which was base camped at Duc Pho.

I was wounded Mar. 21, 1968 attempting to recover fallen heroes from C. Co. who had run into a well concealed bunker complex on a trail in a kill zone in Thua Thien Province.
