    The name is Roy, I arrived in VN in May 67 I was with the Searchlight Plt. I had only been there nine days when I got in my first firefight. In of all places, Freedom Hill, otherwise know as Hill 327. It was supposed to be the safest place around Da Nang. Our Platoon was the most hated by both sides. The only ones that really appreciated us was “Spooky” that awful fantastic killer gunship in the sky. Our searchlights would light up and area and he would just unload on the VC. “Welcome Home” Marine. I’m glad you made it back. Semper Fi ! Once a Marine, Always a Marine
