Memorable Events

 

Fire Support Base Washington awoke early one morning partly surrounded by signs and a large banner, imploring us to leave the country or put down our weapons. No shots were fired in this attack, it was unnerving to have the enemy undetected outside our FSB.

Christmas 1968 was memorable, one of my favorites ever. The weather did not fit and I was not with family but civic organizations in the States and families sent many packages of food, Christmas Trees, letters and other reminders of a normal holiday. Singing Christmas songs as a group with our USO visitors was an emotional reminder of what we left behind to come here.

Bob Kelly going home was memorable because he was the most unique and influential person I knew in Vietnam. (Kelly tied John Clark as the person least changed by their tour of duty in A Battery). His actions forced me to confront my racial prejudice and begin learning to judge people on their actions not their color.
