I have Never Seen Any Post about this question on any of the Sites, when I was in the 597th. in Phutai some of us were asked to Volunteer to do Re-Con, I and many other guys voluntered and we were drop off by Chopper in a Huey about half-way between QuiNohn and Phutai in the Mountains, Luckily we never made any Contac,t but we found Motars made with Bamboo, etc.. We walked in the Streams, stayed off the trails and all, to avoid booby traps, etc., and later picked up.
I am just curious how many guys here have volunteered for the same stuff.
I had done this during 1971-1972. I am just hoping maybe by chance, maybe somehere, someone here was with me during that time or had done this, would appreciate any input.
I figure this would be a Good Question to Post, I have never asked this question, but figured just how many here have done this, any information would be appreciated.
Just because we were in a Transportation Unit, doesn’t mean we all drove trucks and did everything pertaining to a Transportation Unit. Many times we was asked if we wanted to Volunteer for Night Convoys, Which I did also and some of my Buddies also did, while a Gunner on the King Cobra in the 597th.
Any Input would be nice, thanks, later Bruce
