One of the tracks of 3rd platoon, Bravo Co. 2/2nd Infantry, getting ready to move out from Lai Khe basecamp. The soldier with the dog was Sgt. Eddie Caudill, an experienced and brave soldier. He was one of the holdovers from when the unit was "leg", prior to converting to mechanized. I was told that he was badly wounded in late '67 and evacuated home. The dog was our mascot, "Grunt".
I was told by our old platoon leader some time ago that Eddie had passed away, but based on the comments I received after posting that, it was evidently not correct. It's nice to know that he's still among us. He was an exceptional soldier and a really nice person.
