One must not forget unscrewing tanker hatches and putting ladies of the night inside to get through the gate.
One of my twin gunners standing on the street in the village with an extended LAW wanting his radio back that another lady of the night took from him. I convinced him it was better to fire the LAW at the hillside, and let me deal with Madam K.
Oh yes: My convoy with a new ROTC 2ND Lt> My tankers knew best on the pass, so they passed him. Slower tankers being pushed by faster ones! When my Gun Truck passed him, he was stopped on the side standing in the jeep waving his arms, yelling on the radio to maintain convoy interval. He was going to write everybody up for an Article 15, but the clerk told him it was around 70 men and our vehicles. So he thought better of it. From that time on he beat us to the top of the pass!!!
Told to call in for permission to fire after the rocket’s hit!!! Wanna bet we did that!!!
Going for joy rides in the OH-6’s at the check points.
I’ve never seen a braver bunch of men who would fight with what ever they had, and would help anyone at whatever the cost.
