    The bringing ammo story is pure bunk. Bullock and the other three,Eggy,Bunn and Hunnicutt were all killed in the bunker. Don’t remember but two guns in 2nd platoon that nite and you aren’t one of them. Dan and myself and a mule driver along with a sargent ,,Calhoon I think were detailed to get dirty 30 cal belts from tank area and bring them to bunkers at Delta Sector. That took til almost dark. I went to my bunker ,and later Calhoon came to my bunker yelling for eggy’s guys to turn the dam music off and quit using flashlites. I think if you subscribe to the “killed while bringing ammo” story,most likely you don’t know what the hell you’re talking about. One of my best friends whom I see several times a year was on the M-60 that night.BULLOCK and several others were totally drunk on cheap gook rum that evening and it probably cost four Marines their lives.Tell me who recorded the fight on tape and I might think you have something to say.

    I was with 3rd Marines in Dong Ha & Quang Tri area in 1968. A small unit of ours was sent down to assist the 5th Marines in the An Hoa area. I was a 0211 (Intelligence). Two things I remember most are–just before we got there, the 5th Marines 1st Sarge & Colonel were shot down & killed in a helicopter, I think the ARVN colonel was with them too! Second I was lucky enough to get picked to go to the USO (Bob Hope) show in DaNang while there, Xmas 1968. I got out on the LZ at 4 am to await the flight, slowly the other Marines arrived for the trip, we were so happy. The plane finally landed, refueled and took off without us. We were later told it had taken sniper fire and would not take any people on it’s flight. We were ready to shoot it down ourselves after that! Typical bullshit, right! Semper Fi! Cpl. D. A. Morrill (Nam 68-69) Anybody remember this?
