Here's Sonny on patrol outside Camp Bearcat's
perimeter - April, 1967.

 

Mike Lethcoe and Sonny aboard the troop ship, USS General John Pope
enroute to South Viet Nam - January, 1967.

 

Sonny showing off his fine M-14 rifle at Fort Riley's Custer Hill facility - too
bad he had to swap it for a cruddy M-16 before departing for Viet Nam.

 

Rick Uhey, Bob Wright & Rick Zimmer (hat)
ridin' a Tango in the Mekong Delta - May 1967

 

Sonny's buddies, Rick Zimmer and Jerry Heckers aboard a tango
headed back from a three day Mekong Delta patrol - May 1967.

 

Now we know why Uncle Sam needed Sonny in the good
ole Infantry - man, what a diggin' machine - he loved it!

 

March, 1967 - Between patrols, Alpha troopers relax on
the Mobile Riverine Force Barracks Ship, USS Henrico.
 

Absolutely amazing!  Sonny found a live
puppy in Viet Nam - Dong Tam - April, 1967
 

Sonny & Rick Zimmer holding a mortar chunk that
narrowly missed them & Rick Zimmer - April, 1967.
 

They're laughing now, but after a hot chunk of metal
slammed into mud near them, undies were checked.
 

Sonny tickling Rick Uhey's funny bone aboard a
 barracks ship - aren't these guys lovin' Army life.
 

Sonny's cool jacket, which he still has to this day. Sonny, did you buy
this at Dong Tam's PX or in Saigon?
