MORE FROM MY TOUR IN VIETNAM


MORE PICTURES FROM THE NAM

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.




Purple Heart Recipants.
This list only covers the first 10 months of C.B.M.U.301's time in Country. Yes I am listed, over half of this list got theirs in Khe San. The 2 KIA's were at Khe Sanh. Sherbrooks 1st on left also received the Bronze star for pulling Marines out of the Ammo Dump at Dong Ha when it was hit 3 Sept,1967.

Rough Terrain Fork Lift.
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.

TD 25 Bull Dozer.
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 !
INQUIRE AT THE ALAMO HILTON !
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.
You can see in the background Hueys making runs just out side the lines. The NVA would slip in close, down by the river and set up their motor tubes. Then drop three or more rounds on us, and then run off.

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!
