    I was with C company 4th Battalion 3rd Infantry Brigade 23rd Infantry Division as an 11B, from Jan 68-Jan 69. Hummped an M- 60 and later an M79 and a M16. They did not have a M203 like they do now so you had to carry both M79 and M16, what a pain.

    Carried my shared, killed my share and bled my share (2 PH).
    HOO YAHHH !
