Wishing you a happy belated birthday and God bless you. Is this Lt. Rudd of the 3rPlatoon in 1967? If it is Lt. Rudd I would like to let you know that I always considered you the best Platoon leader I ever had. I was a medic in your platoon known as Doc LeRoy. Please, let me know if I got this right. Either way, welcome aboard.

Excellent Photos and a positive sharing for the others, Thanks. Damned, wish some of our squads Aug 66-May 67 would turn up-lost what few I had in the shuffle of the years.

Michael LeRoy (candy in mouth) wilth fully loaded magazine on steel pot, supposed to stop penetration of bullet thru helmet. My reason for this is that I went to the aid of friends that was shot thru steel pot and they were dead when they hit the ground.
