Finally! Out of the red mud.  Notice no sandbags yet.  These pics must have been around late October or early November 1966.

 

C Battery gun firing -  note the addition of sandbags around the powder canisters.

 

Jim says he named his gun " CATHY " after the daughter of the Stars and Stripes reporter who covered our landing at Da Nang and made the trip with us to Carroll.  That gun was on 'CATHY III' when Jim left in 1967.  Lot of rounds fired in the right direction!

2/94th Advance Party landing at Saigon Air Port. This includes all the FB XO's and the Battalion Staff.

 

This is a good example of the kind of creatures that know how to climb about the Rockpile.  Oh, I'm sorry; that's LT DeVita, my mistake. (Greg Smith)  Picture was taken by RTO David Bennett.

 

Training of A Battery at Fort Sill.

 

Photo is Jerry Heard (A Battery CO),  SFC Nesbitt (Smoke), Andy Tenis (when he was really thin) and the RTO can't remember his name( could be Bob -----?)
