The Golfers are starting to return, Rich Walsh & Larry Cota.
Looks like Rich is first in but seems to have stopped short of the prize money? Larry on the other hand seems to be heading up to declare his share.
Might be some descepancy on who did what? Mark Young, Bulldog, Pointman, Larry Cota, Rich Walsh.
Col. Larry Redmond & Sal Melendez going over the finer points of white bread and peanute butter.
Capt Myers, keeping out of the sun rays, talking about the good old days when he could have all the Chuckles he wanted.
This was the photo adjustment, zero in time and Frisbie and Larry were the blurry targets.
Clearing out for the Ceremony
I think this pretty much says it all! A gift from the 2nd Batt!
Next day (6/24/2012) and time to go home!

Rich Walsh, Capt. Myers & Ivan Worrell – Maj USA, Ret & Editor of The First Screaming Eagles in Viet Nam! His magazine covers from 65 thru 67 era.
This is a soldier that I have been worried about for along time and it really was a good to see him since the last time we were both on a helicopter headed for the rear, he got to bleed a lot more then I did but he wanted to catch more bullets then I did- like 5 total, Joe Bernstein! Notice that he decided that a camera was much easier to pack around then a M-60.
