I served with 1st squad, 2nd platoon, Company A, 1st Battalion, 27th Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division. The date of KIA approaches for members of our 3rd squad. The 3rd squad was wiped out on 'Ambush Purple' on June 28th, 1966.

SGT Price and I came over from Hawaii together as well as some other members of his squad, Harry Dyer, Carl Fell, Sgt Sheidt (RTO and FO from our mortar platoon), including some early replacements from February 1966. There were 12 men killed that night.

Once again as the anniversary date is near, the feeling of guilt is overwhelming.

Thank you
