    During the fighting in the city of Kontum TET 68 I recaptured this from an NVA.
    Still have it in an airtight container and as you can see it caught hell, bulletholes, shrapnel and blood.

    Posted in honor of a man who cared for the troops, entertained us, made us laugh, and forget, for a little while where we were. Rest easy Robin Williams, you will never be forgotten.....

    Greetings Joe, think we hooked up with the wrong travel agent: :D If it's not too personal, what unit where you with and what area did you work?

    True! No internet back then... had to rely on Uncle Sam's own travel bureau [emoji12]

    I was stationed with the 525th MI Group, but the majority of my time was spent up near Hue.

    I took basic at Ft Polk. C-1-2 was my home for 8 weeks of hell in beautiful downtown Louisiana (in August and September!) [emoji13]

    How else may I bore you? [emoji3]

    How about your history?

Spent most of the time in the bush up around the DMZ. Medivaced to Japan (Camp Zama) April of 70. Was a long time ago but sometimes seems like yesterday. ;)
