The weather was bad and there were several other events going on but we chose to support this one.

805th Photo Album

lil sure shotBuck Shot  has posted a photo Album for Dan Frey, 805th, Lil Sure Shot.  Pic is posted, but I’m not sure if it is the color scheme when Dan was there. Everyone I have talked to that ran Ql 9 always talks about the Rockpile. It was a landmark noone forgets. There is a Khe Sahn photo album with pics of the Rockpile.

Guntruck Songs

     As I was listening to my tunes, I couldn’t help but share a few that may bring a smile or two…

ACE OF SPADES:

PLAYBOYS:

ROAD RUNNER:

BLACK WIDOW:

RUNNIN’ BARE:

Both these versions are great; I’m guessing the “Runnin Bare” version from 1970 was the one named on the Guntruck!

And who doesn’t remember this 1959 original, “Running Bear…”

RUNNING BEAR:

 (A LOT of good music came from the ’60s.  Dusted off this one thinking there might have been a few guys back in another world that might have had this song on their mind…)

SATAN’S LITTLE ANGEL (better known to many as Satans Li’l Angel) 

(Smiling… And for your all time favorite listening pleasure…)

WILD THING:

DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS!..

PSYCHOTIC REACTION!..;-)

THE CREEPER:

I noticed John put this post up front – so I couldn’t resist adding more classics:

MATCHBOX:

PALADIN:

Hope you enjoy.
