hey Marine, this is Bob Sweeney, I was in plt.1026 at that time.Our senior D I was Staff Sgt. Gabbard,then ther was Sgt. Conners, the Black belt karate guy. I got one of those chops in the throat coming out of the head, for stopping to grab some water. Remember it well! .So many of us did,nt come back.If you remember private Black, ha sang like an opera singer, I ran in to him over there,then when I got home was told he did,nt make it. Wow its good to hear/see from someone from the old outfit, .
