KIA April, 1970
I am sending a photo of me and Howie Blakey (KIA in April, 1970). We had a young boy (approximately 12 years old) named Jack who acted as houseboy/interpreter for CAP 1-3-8. He is happily posing for us in this picture. As you can see, he is so happy that he is giving us the 1 finger salute!! He was a good kid, and I often wonder what became of him....
P.S. I'm the good-looking one on the pic.
