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?
