RE: Alpha 1/7 book (Dave Sullivan)docusmcrvn68@hotmail.com
I WAS FLOWN OP MEAD RIVER,DEC 8-9.
I FINISHED 5 MONTHS WITH B CO.PULLED OUT TO HILL 37.4 DAYS LATER I WAS SENT WITH 2 OTHER DOC'S,TO REPLACE 3 DOC'S THAT WERE HIT THE DAY BEFORE.IT WAS ROUGH AS WE 3 AND A SGT LOADED THE KIA'S ONTO AN ARVN APC. THE TC WOULD NOT LET US LOAD THE MARINES ABORAD THE TRACK. THIS SGT WENT THRU THE BACK HACTH AND TOSSED THE TC UP THRU THE TOP TURRENT.WE PLACED ALL OF THE MARINES INTO THE APC.
WE WENT WITH 1ST PLT. EVERONE WAS ON LINE AND FIRING AND GETTING A LOT OF BACK AT US.
WE MADE TO THE RIVER AND THE OP WAS OVER.
WE SIT IN FOR THE NIGHT.I FELL ASLEEP.
I WAS WOKEN UP BY THE SQUAD LEADER.
HE TOLD ME ABOUT THE FIRE FIGHT THAT
WENT ON THAT NIGHT.HOW THE GOOKS TRYIED TO BREAK OUT AND WERE HIT WITH A HAIL PF ROUDS FROM ALL THE MARINES.HE TOLD ME HE DIDN'T WANT TO WAKE ME UP AS I WOULD'VE BEEN HIT IN HEAD BY THE MA DUECE ROUNDS.
THEY WERE A GOOD BUNCH OF MARINES.
