Message One last thing. Anyone who knows of a Vietnam vet who has cancer, should

know that Agent Orangs has been shown to have caused at least 8 forms of

cancer. One of which is prostate cancer. And we were in areas that were

treated with Agent Orange. That is up north in I Corps, not just down in the

Tay Ninh area.<br>I know of two friends who have two forms of the cancer

related to Agent Orange.<br>Just thought you might not know.<br>Gramps

the mountains north of Danang that didn't get ambushed or at least have

snipers working on them. We never even had anyone throw a rock or

anything at us.<br>Remember when some idiot tried to frag the HHC rifle

company C.O. and killed two of their buddies instead, who were sleeping

Message Anyone remember the almost nightly mortar runs that old Charlie made on

LZ Baldy?<br>Remember swiping meat from the mess hall to barbque on

top of the hill at Hill 63 and we would always feed the grunts coming over

to eat at the mess hall.<br>Not all of us REMF's were bad.<br>Remember

at 63 when they thought there was a squad of Charlie down at the dump

and they brought in a couple of gunships to tear it up and found nothing

the next morning.Remember the B52 strike west of 63?<br>Awesome.
