I'm so short.....when I get out of bed I free fall for
"SuperBowl of VietNam 1965"
When I first went out to the
field it was around Lz Mary...
then into the Valley...it was like sacred ground to me and it was errie being there...Then
over to lz Mary and the Special Forces Camp..I recall the Montagnards and how different they were from the Vietnamese...these
people were proud and would not take your candy and things though offered....all in all they were quite refreshing...
The 2/5 of Nov65 swept into
Lz Victor then over to Lz X-ray
