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.....

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

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!)

How else may I bore you?

How about your history?

Basic at Leonard Wood (middle of Winter). AIT at Ford Ord California (heaven, a mid-western boys first visit to the coast). Saw Hue from the back of a troop transport. Based out of Camp Evans. 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. ;)
