                  • Like I've been saying Boonie,
                    Grunts were "pack" mules and the most important was ammo and WATER! Count the number of canteens on
                    the guy in the center and he still has a least one in the pouch on his belt.

                        • Colonel Ripley, who at the time was a captain and a military adviser to a South Vietnamese Marine unit,
                          blew up the southern end of the Dong Ha Bridge over the Cua Viet River on Easter Sunday, April 2, 1972.






                          Some veterans have said that Col. Ripley should have been awarded the Medal of Honor, the nation's highest recognition for valor,
                          but his heroic deeds could not be suitably documented because they were not witnessed by Americans.
