Sergeant Dan Kerr & Harold Exum – Camp Bearcat – Mar ’67
Here’s Sgt George Smith at Camp Bearcat – one of our favorite NCO’s & who gave the ultimate sacrifice on July 11, 1967 in the Mekong Delta.
James Holstine, a fine soldier from Austin, Texas. Sadly, we lost James to cancer in 1992.
There’s Lt. Jack Benedick (facing the camera) and Fred Harrell at right in some hamlet down in the Mekong Delta…
This photo was taken in September, 1967 at Dong Tam when Lt. Jack Benedick was transferred unwillingly from his 2nd Platoon, which he had taken over at Fort Riley, Kansas one year prior.

Lt. Jack called his “13 Originals” together for a little goodbye celebration – 8 of those 13 soldiers are shown here.  When Lt. Jack first assumed command of the 2nd Platoon, it consisted of approximately 35 soldiers.
