Dave, thanks for all your service and archiving of what should be viewed and read by all. My Dad, WWII Veteran, Mom and family were all behind you guys, and still are. My brother-in-law is a proud veteran of Vietnam. This is the most factual and infomrative education about our men in Vietnam that I have ever seen or read. And I've been a student on this subject since I was a teenager. It is truly a shame that the public perception is through the prism of mass media propaganda. Thank God for the Internet and men like you, and may the government never be allowed to regulate or censor this window.

Dave, thanks for your excellent site dedicated to the men of the Big Red One. I was in your base camp at Lai Khe in the G2 section. I did the psyops work in the area with leaflet drops, speaker runs and some medcaps. Our psyop battalion (6th) was dispatched throughout the four corps on Nam. HQ in Bein Hoa, and I was assigned to the BRO in Lai Khe. I have many photos of the HQ, mission runs and even the monkey pictured on your list. My field commander, a major, was killed in the officer's club attack mentioned earlier. It was his birthday and I would have been celebrating with him had I not been called to duty in Bein Hoa by my direct commander of the 6th Psyop Battalion. The gooks had set up claymores on the rescue trail to the club to kill those coming to aid those in the explosion. Fortunately, VC electronics didn't work and the trap never closed.
Is there a way I may forward some photos to you?
Great site and wonderful tributes to real heroes with bravery beyond description.
