Tom, Doc Neal and Erma the Monkey was Killer at the end of Match 1968 on Highway 13 on the was back from Chahn Thanh when their Track Hit a Land Mine. SSG Barks "Mother" and I carried Doc Neal's body to the dustoff helicopter along with His Monkey...The First Sergeant was also injured that day approximate time was 1600 hours.....B 2/2 Inf was operating/located at the new Thunder 1.The Guy who the First Sergeant with Doc Neal took to the aid Station at Chahn Thanh was from my Platoon "3rd" was not injured at all.Lai Khe during the Month of March 1968 was constantly recieving Rocket fire,that's how Lai Khe was called Rocket City.....It was more safer in the field than at Lai Khe.I remember Erma the Monkey very well because when I'd go to the Medical Track the Monkey would jump in my shoulder to play with my and I would tell the medic to come get His Monkey.
