1/22 Inf – B Co – 3rd Platoon Pictures

Looks like this is only 1/2 of the 3rd platoon, either that or this picture shows just how short handed we really were.

3rd platoon men and equipment jammed inside of a dark C-130 airplane,
headed to our next mission.

Even the dogs had a hard time finding a dry spot!
Notice our sleeping tents in the background.

Sleeping Tent

Inside one of the dreary drab sleeping tents at a firebase. Notice how close together the cots are and the muddy ground in between them. Someone hung a piece of clear plastic on the tent wall to cover a hole in it. But, still better than being outside in the rain as we make the best of it. Four guys sitting on two cots enjoying a card game.

Just another BIG bug.

Kuhn and Jarvie out sight seeing

After one of the sergeants decided to volunteer me to carry the M-60 machine gun, I decided that I better brush up on my skills before going back out into the field.

Tuy Hoa Air base. We were living the dream at the end of the rainbow!
