Comment: Read a lot of books in the past few months about Hill 55, and Mike 3/5 keeps coming up...
I'm an Army veteran, 83-90..

What strikes me as awesome, is the bond that men in combat have endured. You people have not seen eachother in 30 years but that bond is still there, and that's awesome..

Ed Kugeler put out a book about snipers in the Nam, I'll send him this link because his book mentions 3/5 contantly..

And from an Army Vet, I'd say Semper Fi but Id' be outta plac

Comment: I was with the 1st Radio Battalion's 1st Platoon at An Hoa and Hill 37 from June 1969 until June 1970. I was a Vietnamse linguist in communication intelligence, and rarely got to chat with other units. Spent time with H & S on Operation Durham Peak during the summer of 1969, though I was in-country only 2 weeks.
