Message Concerning Jan.9,1968, there were 13 members of the 196th were either

KIA that day or wia that day and listed kia later. The soldiers that died Jan.

9th from the explosion were from D-2-1, or attached to D-2-1. We were told

there were 5 kia. As our squad walked past them to go to our night position,

I'm sure I saw Williams and Prescot. I had just been with D-2-1 for 2 months.

I was one of the (25) 175th Combat Engineers sent to Inf. units. It was

tragic. I see it in my mind everyday. Ron

Message To Lloyd Martin, I don't remember seeing LT. Harris the day of the

explotion.It happened so fast but I know for sure Johnny Williams and

Dennis Prescot and three more men died that day. Through the years we

have noticed that Lt.Harris and Sisto Bojorquez were kia on the same day

with multible fragmentation wounds. One soldier that came out that day to

help with identification said there were seven killed that day. It would be

good to know for sure how many and who the others were. Ron

Message To Ron Payne<br>Thanks for the info Ron, After all this years I am finally

putting a claim for PTSD. That day was one I never forgot, I was not to far

from where it blew, our squad was about that far as you mentioned (location

about 7 oclock from the blast), it was toward the afternoon, we were just

about to set up a perimeter.<br>val jaramillo (Chief)
