I was assigned as a medic to the 6th Sup. Bat. Co Cmed. on March 67. I was on the ambulance platoon. Shipped to Viet Nam on Dec. 67 on the general Weigel ( It was moth balled a couple of year ago), y older brother went to the Korean war on the Weigel, too. On Viet Nam we went to Carentan for a few weeks, then to LZ Bronco on Duc Pho. The first wounded I went to get was from the 4/3 and it happened that he was from Puerto Rico also. Lost a few friends there. I had forgotten most of the names. I came back and after a time became an MD, the ObGyn. Retired now due to diabetes, heart trouble, cancer and all that caused by agent orange. If any one remeber me contact me. I visited my company comander in Florida, two year ago, Dr. Raymond Mclane.
