In January or February of 1968, Question!  Was the 2/2nd in Quan Loi during that time frame?  The reason why I'm asking, is that our Recon. Platoon 29er rode on APC from Quan Loi to An Loc for reason unknown to me. I do know we were hauling ass down Highway 13. Do any of you from the 2/2 make that run.
I remember all of the rubber trees on either side of Highway 13.
