A little about my tour:
I served with Charlie Company 2/327th from Oct 67 to Oct 68. Served with the best “troopers” in the world during that time. Charlie Company took a lot of casualties on March 21st, 1968 at Thua Thien. A lot of good eagles went home to the nest that day. Miss them all. I was awarded a Silver Star for action on 24th March. I was wounded a few days later and spent a month in the hospital. On my return to Charlie Company there weren’t a lot of familiar faces left. Fortunately for me the company clerk was getting ready to rotate and I could type. So, I spent the rest of my tour in the rear with the likes of “Bulldog” Drummond, “Butch” Santaguida, 1st Weldon and others.
NO SLACK – it’s good to be home!
