Enjoyed your letter and photos.  I was assigned to the US Army Mortuary at Ton Son Nuet Airfield under the 1st Log.  I am impressed that you remember names.  I have been trying to remember who was with me but my memory is pretty bad, had to do with agent orange and being drunk most of my tour.  You were stationed at Red Ball, same time I was at the mortuary.  I can’t remember even a round coming thru the mortuary, think the vet went around us.  Glad you made it.  My brother was stationed in Saigon (Finance) at the same time.  I was very fortunate that no one I knew was injured.  I did  pick up and process quite a few brothers during my tour.  Live the life.
