Re: STILL LIVING IN THE PAST.......
Msg just rec'd from an old buddy who was there...Chief
An addendum to the MCB-5 highway 9 roadwork. The Marine morning sweep team had moved from Dong Ha outward perhaps 2-3 months prior. As our work was farther down the road it was decided that we “Seabees” would sweep the road each morning to our work area and the Marines would leapfrog and start at that point. We would “sweep” the road in typical Seabee fashion we would drive down the road. I remember like it was yesterday EO2 “Crash” Kramarz standing at the main gate and motioning with his arm circling in the air and then pointing down the road after being told the “sweep” team hadn't departed yet. From that day on we “swept” the road till the day we left. Each morning was exhilarating particularly for the first guy.
