Delta Marines 5 July 1969

While Delta Co. was staged to go across river into the Arizona, Lt. Col. Dowd stayed with us that night. The three Marines were part of a Ambush team comming back to our lines after Midnight. The point man and the other marines walked up on two sappers 20 yards from my hole crawling in One gook was killed and the other hauled his ass out of the corn field. The Marines are holding their trophies.
