Camp Enari, Pleiku RE-UP, you've got to be kidding me?

Doc Hooks sat on my new crossbow and broke it into two peices. War is hell.
First and Last Stand-Down in Camp Enari for C co. 3/12 because someone got drunk and drove the Colonel's Jeep into the water resevoir. Wasn't me, honest. That's me on the left with ?Jerry Klug?
I'm very proud of my new crossbow. Posed with some of the kids in the village
I bought the crossbow from the maker, the villager to my left
It didn't take long to make friends with the kids. This is Lic, he would carve pineapples in the shape of a popsicle for me, every morning.
I think breaking my crossbow was a conspieracy. No one likes their sgt. I commanded respect, can you tell?
I think this is the main gate at Camp Enari
The last two weeks of my tour in Vietnam were spent providing security for this Montagnard Village out side Camp Enari
The Villagers didn't like us much, we left toilet paper everywhere
This is Bic, Lic's little brother.
This IS Sin City ... where you can get a haircut (my wife is watching me type this)
Village kids, Lic and Bic in front
Water Buffalo were a villages wealth. This is the watering hole, notice the toilet paper everywhere, not good, bad GI's
