FOB-2 Hqs in the East section of the camp, July 1968. The jeep in front likely was stolen from Pleiku. The
fob had active “requisition” operations on-going to plus up our logistical structure.

Here’s a photo of me taken in
Herat Afghanistan, Oct 2006, and one from A-233 Ban Do from Dec 1966. Not too big a change.
SSG Luk Dove, my replacement as 1-0 Delaware, taken just after his return from a shake-down mission with RT Illinois in October 1968. Shortly after this photo
he took over as 1-0 of Delaware. Note the RT Delaware patch I designed on his pocket. Only 20 were made.

n September 1968 we all were ordered to improved our
assigned bunkers. RT Delaware went down to the old
4th inf compound 4 miles down the road and scrounged 8″ beams and sacks of grenades. We Built this bunker with a Sand bag berm behind it. In every alert, senior officers would cluster there because of the protection.
Jimmy Marshall and a SSG who went on the mission to look for the guns. Pic taken at the 31 Oct party right after RT Delaware returned from the mission. RT Delaware was led by Mike Williams, Jimmy was 1-2… Rodriques was on a shake down training mission with Delaware.
Party on 31 Oct 1968 at FOB 2. think the guy talking is SFC Dennison??? not sure of the names.
Right before I left (31 Oct as I recall), there was a
real party behind the RT barracks next to the bunkers. Some serious imbibing was the order of the day. Here Don (Dave) Davidson … later (I heard) a SGM. Again not/NOT one of the Bull Shiters.
Picture of the club at FOB2. Don (Dave) Davidson and Mike Williams are in the photo which makes the date probable very late Oct 1968, just after Mike and Jimmy Marshall got back from looking for and finding NVA
guns in Laos.
Couple of Sgts fixing their hooch at Fob-2. I used to remember their names. I do remember they weren’t part of the Bull Shiter contingent.

Pic taken in Sep 1968
Point man Yuk…the sorcerer, then 18 years old.
Right after he got off the choppers from the mission
to look for NVN artillery. I had two other photos of the group as they unassed the choppers…both slides
have gone missing.
This murkey photo is of me on my first mission at
FOB-2 with RT Delaware 1-0 SSG Dahling looking for a NVA unit which ambushed an American convoy between Kontum and Pleiku. Dahling hated that hat.
This first one is a picture of my Twin brother Jack
Williams and myself taken at B-24 About August 1968. Jack had gone back to Dak Pek from Ben Het and was in to B-24 for the day.
