|At Khe Sanh during the Siege,
depending on who you talk to,
there were about 1800 given for wounds,
and about 445 KIA.
Some got two like my Bro Jim Post.
To many died to make,
Westmorlin and Giap look good.
I Miss You Bros.

I was blown off this twice the second time, was a direct hit right front tire and fuel tank. I ran away with not a scratch, but a flack jacket full of scrapmetal.

I was a Magnet,Every Vehicle I operated got at least, 1 Purple Heart. Check out the scrapmetal holes. I walked away from every one of these with out a scratch.
|After all of the constant shelling,
and the trouble getting parts, we robbed Peter to pay Paul.
GOOD USED TRUCKS FOR SALE !

|This Picture tells it all.
INCOMMING, you run for your life.
Then You lay in the mud, cuss, pray,
cry, and wish you were home.
|More Incomming, you hope to NOT, get caught out on the Air Strip, when they decided to say Hi.|
|Fixing the Air Strip.
Yes there is a war going on. Our MAIN job was to keep the Air Strip OPEN. Just for your information there were NO! bunkers or trenches close to the Strip. When we caught incomming, I droped the blade on the dozer, and crawled under it. Other wise we ran like HELL for cove.
|After 1 day of shelling, our nice tents and hardback buildings, were full of holes. The ones that were left standing anyway. After a week Khe Sanh was flat, nothing more than a grabage dump.|
|Hey Marine You looking for a ride?
When leaving Khe Sanh, you took your gear, stood by the strip, the choppers came dropped their load, while moving, and then you throw your gear on, jump on, and pull the next guy and his gear on. This was normally done in under a minute. It took Charlie 30 seconds, to target the strip and let fly with arty and rockets.
|When you get down to the last, 1 or 2 pictures in your camera, you take a CLOSE up of, Who else Your SELF. This is one of MY BROS Ray Cruz, Love Ya BRO!|
