I raise my glass to the men of Echo Co. Mortars! Bartender-make that a double!
Echo mortars on FSB David
Nick Mychajluk has forwarded some good photos. I think I see what’s going on here. Echo must have just arrived on the firebase and got some aiming stakes up. Have to sight in the tubes.
Jeez, can’t you guys clean up a little? Actually I like this because it does show the conditions when setting up and building a firebase. They just don’t spring up out of the ground. Everything has to be built and you still have to be ready to defend yourselves at the same time.
Doc Schramm, Buynak and Burleson on FSB Exodus
Did I mention the mud? We were out of Cambodia but the monsoon rains were still with us. Exodus was the our next firebase when we pulled out of David.
The monsoons, snakes, scorpions, fire ants, rats, Viet Cong. You know, the usual stuff. Here is Nick with a python.
Is that a Burmese Python (Python bivitattus)? Be careful man! That thing is a carnivore!
Bearwallow, Gates and Turay on VN firebase…Eagle or Granite.

Dave Martin – I’m guessing in Cambodia
Ok, Martin wasn’t in mortars, but Nick sent this one as well.
