2nd Platoon, C Company, 4th/47th Battalion, 2nd Brigade Page 1,2,3,4,5,6 October, 1967 – Here I am on R & R and hanginout in the most trendy night club in Sydney,Australia accompanied by my two beautifulAussie cousins, Gail and Christine. Here’s Bill acting up with his Aussie Mates. I don’t think that’s Sherl’s best side (in the foreground), but it will certainly do! It appears that Bill has his eye onhis fine Australian beauty andSherl is her name. Bill and Steve Jacek, the lucky guy whomarried my cousin Christine not too longafter this photo was taken. Yep, they havebeen happily married ever since. Len, Steve, cousin Gail, and Sherl. While I was on R & R in Sydney, my cousins Christine and Gail, along with their good friends, showed me a terrific time & I will always be grateful to them. A few handy little books that I managed to save all these years. Here’s my little brother,Bob. He totally lucked out and served inGermany while I was inViet Nam, which was atremendous relief for mymother and father.Looks like we could’veused him down in theMekong Delta. Five bucks worth of 3.2 beer missed – Doh! 1963 – Not lookin’ so good priorto it’s Viet Nam service – The USSGeneral John Pope docked inGuam.
