 Additional Information
What are you doing now:

Keeping by fly buttoned up, my ammo dry, watching the world turn, buying lots of rounds for my AK and CAR 16 carbine in preparation for what could be WW III both domestically (thanks to the liberals) and globally.


   
Other Comments:

  From 1966 to 1970, I held the Guiness Book of World Records for the Most TDY assignments ever bestowed on one trooper. In my perfect 20-20 hindsight, I'd like to go back to the 60's and kick a lot of asses that needed it ; especially LTC DeVane's skinny ass, provided more covering fire, burned out more M-60 barrels, tried one "joint", R&R'ed in Bangkok, drank a lot less Bud and Kulmbacher, asked either Chris Noel or Judy Thompson (Waycross, GA) to marry me, and kept a sleeping bag as essential gear in my Huey1 Delta.

Vietnam War/Counteroffensive Campaign (1965-66)/Operation Birmingham
Start Year
1966
End Year
1966

Description
Operation Birmingham was a military operation of the Vietnam War in War Zone C, north of Saigon, 24 April–17 May 1966 in the Tay Ninh Province, South Vietnam. The US 1st Infantry Division and the ARVN 5th Division conducted operations on the eastern flank of War Zone C.

The goals were opening Route 13 from Saigon to the north and engaging the Viet Cong 9th Division. The Viet Cong successfully managed to withdraw beyond the Cambodian border, after having only 100 soldiers killed by US and South Vietnamese forces; along with that are 500 tons of weapons, ordnance, rice, salt and other foods seized by anti-communist forces.
