Mike Cramer just thrilled to be in Dong Tam. There's
his 2nd Platoon buddies just starting to dig mortar
trenches - this is the very beginning of Dong Tam
becoming a Mobile Riverine Base Camp in the Delta.

We're tryin' to remember the guy on the left... help please!

Ron Schworer, the only guy in our Unit intelligent enough to understand Mad
Magazine's humor.  Approximately one month after this photo was taken, Ron
gave the ultimate sacrifice on April 9, 1967 in the Rung Sat Special Zone.
