Randy Hyde - Fellow Trooper
Firebase Currahee, Ashau Valley, June 17,1969
Mc Phee and his close friend, Wayne Noth (AKA Big 'Un) were in a bunker near mine. I carried the M60 for my platoon and Big 'Un carried the gun for his platoon. Mc Phee was a little older than most of us and had a great sense of humor and winning smile. These two were our only losses in the Ashau Valley, and we inflicted (with a little help from Artillery, Mortar, Puff, and Cobra and Huey gun ships over 100 casualties on the NVA that hit us with mortar and ground attack. They died in their fighting position, looking out for perimeter penetrations. In two days, it will be the 32nd anniversary of the day you lost your life. I know how you stood your ground, and I will never forget. I think of you every Memorial Day and June 17th. RIP my brother. Randy Hyde, "Strike Force!"  Friday, June 15, 2001
Douglas is buried at Serenity Gardens Memorial Park, Largo,FL. BSM PH
