Doesn't surprise me too much, when you look at the Vietnam memorial, we have 12 names from the 8thAPS, 1 from the 14th, and 8 from the 15th. That includes death by natural cause, accidents, MIA's (plane crashes) and KIA's. Don't know what our troop numbers were, but that is quite a few from the ports in my opinion. I was surprised by the numbers, several were hostile fire at OL's and mobility's. I thought Webb Layton was our only MOB loss but that turned out to be incorrect. Same shit, different time!!! Two were killed in bars, now that's appropriate. Rocket hit O club at CRB, and a sapper lit up a bar is Saigon with our guy in it.

Jim, glad you are reaching out to those guys, we are all the same, eating red dirt and chasin planes!!!

Love ya Man!!
