Comments: I was Platoon Leader of 3rd Platoon, Charlie Co. from April 1967 until
we moved to DaNang on 2 LSTs and a Liberty Ship right after Tet
Offensive. Vaguely recall building Bridges 55, 56, and 57 on route one,
although could be confusing with our platoon call signs: Saxon Heater
57, 56, 55, etc. Does anyone have any recollections of VC burning down
our bridges? (Not too tough with no one guarding at night...all it took
was a jar of gas and a match)
Various adventures included the convoy from Qui Nhon to Pleiku
up route 19. Remember having lots of fun with Sgt. Youngblood and
the rest of the motorpool conspiring to brow beat, bilk, and otherwise
steal spare parts and even trucks from the dock at Qui Nhnon under
excuse of 'Red Ball" before leaving for daNang. Does anybody know of
whereabouts of Sgts DeCarlo, Burton, Gonzales, Cotton of 3rd Platoon?
How about Capt. Cottington or Campbell?
plan on attending reunion this April in Branson, MO. Hope to see
you guys there.

The first one was alongside my crane and blew one of the workers over the abutment and into Sgt posie's arms. Next one got a dump truck that was backfilling wingwall. Third was set off by my partner backing up to hook on our trailer that carried our leads, hammer, and a clam bucket.
It would be great to have someone help me rember the date and the number of the bridge.

Comments: I would like to hear from any one in A Company in 68 or 69. I got there in Oct 68 and we were at Lang Co village. The end of Dec we went to Phu Bai (Camp Eagle) then Hue and loaded up on a LST. 4 days later we got to Can Tho, from there we convoyed to Soc Trang. We hauled in dirt to build the compound, which turned to 3' of mud when the monsoon season came.

There were a few Marines with us at Lang Co and a few guys from the 517th L E with us also. If anyone of those guys sees this, I would like to hear from you also.

Does anyone remember the events that happened one night in early December, 1968?
