I was in Vietnam 5 months and 17 days. During that time I was in three major campaigns and wounded twice. As a team leader I was in charge of a light weapons team of 5 to 6 men. I walked point a lot and ran the dirty team booby traps who did most everything.
It is important for people to know what battle is and hope they will help end the fighting.
Very active in veterans issues a past county veterans service officer.
To the left is an x-ray of my head showing my wounds from a grenade blast. Pictured below is my squad that I was a team leader for half of them. I am in the back row, 2nd from the left. The picture with my uniform was taken in Lincoln in front of my mom’s house the day I left for Vietnam in February of 1968.
