I had just got to DaNang and a week later we moved up to Qua Viet. I remember getting shelled 3 days after we landed, and we didn't have much in the way of bunkers for safety. I later was sent to a single platoon on an island off of Hue. Was there at Tet and later returned to Qua Viet just in time to experience the fuel dunp getting hit. I remember it burned for days. I was in H&S motor pool. Sorry I don't remember any names. Great bunch of guys.
