William, sorry, but names from that time frame seem to be lost to me. I don't even remember the Plt Sgt's name ? I do know that we cut a lot of jungle down from Aug'67 thru Oct '67 and I was out on a bunch of ambush patrols.Just don't recall a lot of contact with anyone from the 1st squad . I was the squad ldr on the 232 track . Norm

Bill, Don't be disappointed about Mother not remembering you. I'm lucky enough to have met three guys who I did remember and even luckier to have met a whole bunch of guys who served at the same time in the same areas and even guys like Mother, Curtis, Bill Stafford, and a few other guys from my company who service over lapped with mine (Feb 68-Feb 69). It was easy to get to know them (we all ate the same dust on Hwy 13) and today I consider them, and a whole bunch of over 2nd INF guys, as much brothers-in-arms, or just brothers as any of the guys from my squad. I hope you can make it to the Regimental Reunion in Pigeon Forge. You'll see exactly what I mean - and it does a body good! John Kerins B/2/2 Feb 68 - Feb 69

Hi William Carrie, I joined the 3rd platoon, track 231 just after Xmas 1967 when the platoon lost alot of guys to a booby trapped 155 round in Claymore Corners. Ron Cron was the squad leader then..maybe you remember him..also Dune and Campbell was in the squad when I joined them. Mother our Platoon Sgt was PSG CHAMPACO who got wounded on 3 April 1968 who SSG Glenn and I thought was dead when he passed out as we laid him down on the ground behind our track B231. I became the squad leader of 231 in August 1968-Nov 1968.

Curtis, I remember PSG Champaco,but not sure that he was my Plt Sgt. in August '67 thru Oct '67 ? In mid August, the Plt Sgt. told me that ALL ambush patrols had to be run by an NCO, being that him & I were the only NCO's in the plt..& him being the Plt Sgt. that he was not going out on any ambush's and he didn't. So every third night, I was out on patrol, I don't think that PSG Champaco would have done that to me ? ? Take care Bro,Norm

Hi Mother, you are right, me personally knowing PSG Champaco he would not have done that...no more comment,mmmmmm!!!!!!!!, but I can at least say that PSG Champaco was always there with his men, (he kept me and SP4 Campbell always on flank during S&D's)," but I learned a lot from being the flank man for the platoon"; I will give him that credit; better than one Staff Sergeant that we know...not to mention any names, ha, ha, ha...take care have a nice day and "Good Morning Vietnam"...Bock, bock, bock bock, Chicken Man, Chicken Man-he's evertwhere, he's everywhere.
