YES PAT THAT WAS WHEN WE WERE FARRIED ACROSSED THE RIVER. WE WALKED ALL DAY.HAD ALOT OF HEAT CASUALTYS. WE SPENT THE NIGHT IN A NDP.2nd PLT DID SOME KIND OF NIGHT RECON.WE LEFT IN THE MORNING AND SOME ONE STEPED ON A TOEPOPPER. THEN ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE. LOTS OF MEDIVACS. IT WAS THE 2nd OR 3rd DAY WHEN I WENT TO THE LZ TO FILL CANTEENS FOR THE SQUAD. GOT CLOSE TO THE WATER BLATTER WHEN THE B-40'S STARTED. ME AN ANOTHER GUY WERE IN AN 82mm CRATOR WASN'T DIP ENOUGH. I GOT 4 OR 5 MINOR SHRAPNEL WOUNDS. DOC FIXED ME UP BUT DIDN'T WRITE IT UP.

same here Terry, I was the top guy of 3 marines in my hole in Conthien when a rocket hit about 4-5 feet in front of the hole and shot up shrapnel rocks and dirt and I got hit on
the back of my left bicep, bled a little but not bad took care of myself and never informed anybody about it. I would have felt embarrassed going up to the corpsman for treatment when others had major injuries.
