I was in Hue
My MOS was 0351.
I lost a brother here in 1968.
After rotating back to the states in December 66 from Vietnam I was assigned to 5thReconBn @ Camp Horno in March 67 October 67 & transfer'd to Kaneoe Recon went to Scout/Sniper school and Markmanship Inst. School. Left with 1/27 on the USS Bexar to Danang after Tet broke out. Tranfer'd to HqCo27thMarRegt Scout/Sniper Plt. Joined 1/27 north of Hue city in Mar 68 and was on Operation "No Name" on April 13 68. Saw SSgt Fred Hayes KIA from 5th ReconBn back @ Horno along with about 30+ other brave Marines. In May 68 sent to hook up with I 3/27 @ GaNoi island and to begin Operation Allenbrook. After about a week or so of some incredible fire fights on the island I think back and reflect how bad India 3/27 overcame those terrible days (Very Hot)and the air strikes. Some how survive that one after a week or so. On July 21 I was attached on a patrol w/K 3/27 near some railroad tracks and was wounded by a land mine and walk away from that one. I refused to be Medivac'd. Rotated back to Margarita Sept 68 w/HqCo27thMarand worked at WeaponsTraining Bn as a marksmanship instr.
