    That's a scary looking boonie you got there Gabby!:eek: What part of the highlands were you in? I worked out of Pleiku for about 6 months and covered every inch of the place from Dak To to Bam Mi Thuet (SP?) Pretty country except for the bad guys shooting at us all the time part.;)

    The top icture and the one with me on right with another guy with helmet was taken up on the Laostion border in Mar or April 69--the other two pictures were taken in May 69 up on Mutter's Ridge which is just below the DMZ. On My 1st, 10th, 13th, 22nd of 69--we had several horrific firefights with the NVA.

    I did some time up in I Corp working out of Da Nang, but didn't like it too well. The bad guys were all too serious about trying to kill our asses! Even the locals were very unfreindly. I guess by the time I was there we had all worn out our welcome.

    Good job though Goldenwing, glad you made it home!:)
