Message Dr. Scotti was my battalion surgeon while I was with C/4/31 and later with

HQ, 4th 31st. He took it upon himself to order all the combat medics, then

in late 67, combat medical rings with the 196th standard. Upon his return

from Hawaii for R&R he brought us all the Silver made, CMB. He was

a great field surgeon and provided daily contact with the senior medics and

medics throughout his stay with HQ/4/31st. What a fine man he was. He will

be missed by all the medical corps.

Message I have in my possession a propaganda leaflet I picked up while on patrol,

probably late 1969. It states:<br>COMPANY &lt;&lt;A&gt;&gt; OF THE

196<br>TH BRIGADE HAS SET AN<br>EXAMPLE OF WAR

RESISTANCE<br> FOLLOW ITS PATH<br> SHOW THE BRASS YOU

ARE<br> MEN NOT ROBOTS<br>On the back:<br>DEMAND YOUR

HOME-COMING<br> MILLIONS OF AMERICANS<br> ARE BEHIND

YOU<br>From my memory and notes this referred to A 3/21. They were

taking huge casualties at Heip Duc. Finally the men refused to move. CO

was moved to Chu Lai Stand-down.
