This page contains pictures of soldiers that I knew during the Vietnam War. I don’t remember everybodies name, which is a shame. I hope I will be able to put names to all the people that I served with in the 1st Platoon. As you can imagine, we had new guys joining 1st Platoon all the time. Some of the guys were new to our platoon as I was getting to be a ‘short timer’ in Vietnam.
