New Image of Frank Webb

Wendell Barnes sent me a fantastic photo of LT Frank Webb in his class A uniform complete with 50th Infantry insignia! I have updated Frank Webb's memorial page.

Great Photo Jim/ Wendell.....sent chills down my spine. Lt Webb was a great officer, and probably instrumental in saving a lot of our lives at An Bao. He took charge after Lt Hinton was KIA, and got us to pull back from the tracks to a defensive position a few hundred meters away from the center of the "kill zone".

It's so odd looking at this picture now - he looks so young, whereas, at that time, he seemed much older. We were all nothing but kids back then....

Respect Sir

A Company '68. WIA An Bao
