Hello Bill Batho, Your e-mail address was not translated well by me and this got bounced:
I was in Cu Chi a little after you (Jan ''70) and served in the HHD(S-1) of the 86th Signal BN. Our CO was Lt Col. William Renner, Maj Richards was 2nd(S-2) in command, Mr. Hannsberry (?) a CW? was the adjutant. A great little Italian, a CSM was in our office, not sure what he did, but everyone, including the CO respected him. Will never forget his call to "Attention" when Renner would walk in, but I can't remember his name, unless it was something like Veecee,, but that might have been a D.I. back in El Paso, Tx.
After a few weeks, of clerk-typing, I also started bar tending at the Officers' Club. I could have been a VC with heated pizzas my main weapon that no one suffered major damage from, but they only ordered one. I was the friend of Frozen Pizzas.
Soon, In April, I was shipped to My Tho(10th Sig Co) to relearn my MOS and a bit about Comm Centers and then to Ben Tre where the 535th Signal Co had a small detachment providing signal services. Then, I began being an 05C20, RTTO, but in a Comm center. Someone told me that MOS, but I've forgotten. On August 18, while returning from Saigon after entering the edges of Ben Tre, I was injured, put into a coma, and sent home .... the war was over for me.
The only other Signal Company I knew about in Cu Chi was the 125th Sig, which belonged to the 25th Infantry Div.
Please tell me a bit about your stay in the Land of Enchantment, i.e., not NM, but I enjoy skiing there. Do you remember the Mail Clerk?
The first thing I recall doing as a Clerk-typist was making and running a steno graph of the E-5 Study questions for those going before the E-5 Board. All that is remembered about them is the first question and answer
Please supply the answer to 1. What is the purpose of the Army? and I'll tell you what you should have said. Your Pay grade or rank is not in danger. I had a Secret Clearance and know how to keep a secret. Hint: the answer is pragmatic and specific

non of each and every choice, so, your life, mine, all lives are gifts
to you, me, each other and when holy to the Sine Qua Non. Amen.

I was a gunship pilot out of Lane AHP An Son. Our team was called out one night between late 1971-early 72 to a MACV position called Tuy Phouc which was being over run by the enemy. I place a rocket for target direction and was told I had hit 5 of the bad guys. A lucky shot for a Uh1 gunship. Later I has in Tuy Phouc and met the MACV advisor and he presented me a VC flag. He said they were very close to being overrun until that one rocket turned the fight around. Anyone out there remember StarBlazer 15. I would really like to hear from you or anybody about that night.
