Comments by Earl Hornung

I served with Ted in Advanced Individual Training (AIT) in Delta Company 2nd Training Battalion 1st Training Brigade, United States Army Training Center, Fort Knox, KY.  We went through AIT from January to the end of March 1966.  We trained to be Tank Crewmen, MOS 11E.  After graduation the first assignment levy to come down had 13 of us were on orders for Vietnam.  Ted said he had joined for 4 years to go to Korea.  He told us that when he complained he was told he could go to Korea for about a year and then go to Vietnam.  Or he could go to Vietnam first for a year and then Korea.  He chose Vietnam first.  I'm not sure what day he arrived in Vietnam, but am pretty sure it was in late April 1966.  When I got to the 3/4 Cav in late April 1966 Ted was already there and driving an APC in 2nd platoon.  I think it was 2nd platoon and definitely not the 3rd platoon.  Dave Cox might know if it was 1st Platoon.  I was told his track hit a land mine and blew the engine into the driver's compartment.  I do not remember if he was killed instantly or a few minutes later.  I believe it was instantly.  I had a picture of the track, but it has gotten lost over the years.  All this is to the best of my memory after 44 years.

Hope this helps his memory.
