1st Battalion - 22nd Infantry - Tuy Hoa, Vietnam
SummaryLooks like this is only 1/2 of the 3rd platoon, either that or this picture shows just how short-handed we really were. Photo from 1st Battalion 22nd Infantry yearbook, Vietnam 1971
1st Battalion – 22nd Infantry – Bravo Company – 3rd Platoon. Tuy Hoa, Vietnam. 1971
A welcomed day off at the Tuy Hoa Army Air Base. Notice the lack of spit-shined boots show that we were not always lucky enough to be in that “rear-area!” In my memoir “Rucksack Grunt,” I have documented many of the experiences that I had with these guys while serving with them in Vietnam. Our journey took us from the many nights of perimeter guard duty at Tuy Hoa, through the nearby villages and rice paddies on ambush patrols, and also into the dangerous Central Highland’s jungles around An Khe during our tour.
