Charlie Company | Page 1 | Page 2

This is exactly how I remember
Larry - always happy on patrol
carrying his fine M-16 & lookin'
for those sneaky Viet Cong.

 

Idoluis Casares - another most excellent trooper
from the great Lone Star State of Texas!
 

From left: Jimmie Salazar, Fred Harrell, Earl Eddings, a
Viet Cong suspect, and Sergeant George "Smitty" Smith.
 

Lt. Jack Benedick observes as Fred Harrell searches belongings
of this local villager and Viet Cong suspect.  Typically, these
guys ere farmers by day and Viet Cong soldiers by night.
 

Good buddies, Mike Cramer and Larry Hoyle - two fine
Southern California lads relaxing at Dong Tam.
 

Lt. Jack Benedick looks on Sergeant George Smith and Fred Harrell cut
down a tree to enable a chopper to resupply 2nd Platoon troopers.
 

Larry Hoyle fillin' canteens with that lovely
Mekong Delta river water - ughhhh!
 

Harold Exum (sitting & facing forward) and Sergeant Dan
Kerr standing over a couple of Viet Cong suspects.
 

Steve Moede from Reseda, California and Idoluis Casares
Brownsville, Texas found a dry place for a smoke break.
 

Lt. Jack Benedick lookin' for a decent place
to cross another stinkin' river

Mike Cramer resting between patrols at Dong Tam. Mike is
thinking, where is my girl, Pat and where is my car
....
 

Okay, we're either burnin' out a chopper Landing Zone or alerting
the Viet Cong of our location
.......maybe both, eh.
 

Looks like our resupply chopper made it in with more ammo and c-rations .......yummy!
 

Here's Larry Hoyle lookin' forward to the
next patrol and firing his big bad M-16!
