"Ben served with us on his third tour in Vietnam! He saw plenty of action with
a perimeter Duster crew in Tuey Hoa during Tet of
1968. During his second tour, he came down with Malaria and was sent to Germany to
recover. I recall he hated Germany and had put in for another stint in Vietnam. He
was approved for the tour and joined the 1/50th while we were either at Song Mao or
shortly before we went there. Ben could read a map & tell a joke with the
best of them...and knew how to take care of his people.
