805th “Lil Sure Shot” from Sep. 1970 – Until Dan DROSed March 1971.

805th "Lil Sure Shot" from Sep. 1970 - Until Dan DRUSed March 1971.

805th “Lil Sure Shot” from Sep. 1970 – Until Dan DRUSed March 1971.

This is the original “Lil Sure Shot” with the original “Lil Sure Shot” paint job. The truck was fully armored with heavy steel sheet plating from the SeaBees. The glass was removed from the doors and replaced with steel sheets as well. Dan is wondering if the other picture of a guntruck with the same name “Lil Sure Shot” painted in large yellow letters, was his old guntruck with new armor and new paint.

Stephen Peter Voorhies 523rd/512th 68/69

Guys, Stephen needs our prayers. I received a letter from his Daughter, Kalah and he isn’t well. He is in the Claremore Veterans Center in Claremore, Ok. It is a very good center and he is getting good care. I don’t feel like I should share his condition here, But if anyone needs the info just email me. He was in the 523rd and 5451 512th-CR-bayth and was a convoy commander and Opns Officer. I have talked to him for years, way back to the MSN and Multiply Site and made a Great friendship  of it. For the past several years I have moved his photo album up when he asked. I put the link of his article at top. He is very proud of this plus his photo album.

Gun Truck hit by RPG Dec. 1970 or Jan 1971?

Dan Frey is looking for the gun truck and solders that was hit by an RPG in Dec. 1970 or Jan. 1971 by Heu City in Tami Ramp. Rear gunner was killed other gunner was wounded. Gun Truck Lil Sure Shot came to aid the hit truck and place the killed and wounded solders on a Medivac. He is trying to find out who the men were.

Also someone uploaded a number of pictures of Lil Sure Shot from this site but the caption on most that were uploaded are now wrong. I seem they copied the same caption from one and it got put on most of the others.
