Nice story and pictures.
WELCOME HOME BUDDY. I WAS IN NAM FROM MARCH 1967 TO DEC I968. WAS AT CU CHI WITH 554 ENGR BN KNEW ALOT OF GUY FROM 2ND OF 14TH AND 3/4 CAV.
I also was with the 25th in '69-'70. 3rd Sqdn, 4th Cav. Hq & Hq Troop. Spent many days at FB Hampton and the behind the Green Door and buddies in the Navy there. Were you there when the underwater sappers blew up the galley? You pictures bring back a flood of memories. My photos were destroyed during the Cambodian invasion in 70. Peace Brother.
This is obviously not my true name. Am still goosey about Nam and other HUMINT. Real good job. I was also with 25th DIVARTY, Tet I, one medevac, and years of medical treatment. Accurate facts. The press and Clinton are doing the same as in the 60s, but not on as great a scale. It is more sneaky and perhaps more dangerous to the country.
I really enjoyed the read. Brought back a lot of memories of my time at Udorn Thailand. We only had very sporadic enemy activity though. I spend my time in a radar van also. A monopulse autotracking unit directing arclight and tac (skyspot) missions in Laos and North Vietnam. I hated going up on that tower at night to change a magnetron. Sure felt like a big old bullseye! Ate C rations while on night duty because we were out on the wire by the tower. Crazy shchedule too. 2 nights, four days, 2 days off, four nights, 2 days, four days off. I finally got used to occassionally waking up with lizards (gekos) on my face. Could have been worse. Back to your page. Your writing is excellent. The work you put in on the text really shows. Ex technical writer, marketing material and proposal writer.

I served as a platoon leader with A Troop 3/4 Cav at Cu Chi from March to July, 1967. I still get letters occasionally from our Forward Observer that was attached to our Troop. I was transferred to D Troop, 199th Infantry. Brigade in July. Your comments about the Vietnam War are right on point. Sounds like you made a great transition to the civilian world.
Very Nice ... Will return to finish looking at the pictures of airplanes .. FB
