Message Valentino Jaramillo, I know the names of at least 3 of the KIA in that bomb

blast to D/2/1 on Jan. 9, 1968. I left Nam around 12/18/67 but received

news from my former RTO James (Tiny) Foreman while I was on leave

before heading to Ft Benning to finish my tour. Lt. James Edward Harris Jr.,

Sgt. Harry Lee Watkins Jr., and SP 4 Dennis Louis Prescott. Dennis was in

my squad until I left and he was up front with Lt Harris when the explosion

went off. Tiny told me he had just stood up when the blast ...
