It finally occurred to me what the title of this forum says. I always thought it was spelled "beau coups", but had no idea how "dinky-dow" was spelled.
Then again, I wasn't in 'Nam. I won one all-expenses paid trip to the far end of the Aleutians and another one (twice as long, no less) to Asmara, Eritrea (which was then part of Ethiopia). (Kids nowadays think I'm b-s'ing when I tell them that my last weapons qual in the Regular Army was with an M2 carbine. The status of forces agreement prohibited us from having our own M14s, so we had to use the Ethiopian 2nd Division's range and weapons.) Tadawah, attah!
