The first picture is of Cpl. Bob Pinkerton the radio operator and Capt. Austin the CO. of C/1/7. The second picture is of Cpl. Pinkerton and Doc Sitzel after Bob was wounded and waiting medivac. These were taken in March of 67 in Nam.
Cpl. Pinkerton would very much like to contact these two Marines. Anyone that was with C/1/7 and remembers any of these guys please e-mail me.
Cpl. Pinkerton was awarded the Silver Star on an earlier patrol..
Bob Pinkerton has located Doc Sitzel. He located him at a reunion about four years ago. I know I referred to a corpsman as a Marine in the article, but so be it, he humped the boonies with the best.
If anyone locates Capt. Austin and would like to contact Bob directly his e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
