I have included many pictures of my service in Vietnam. I have done this for three reasons. One is for your viewing pleasure and the second is in hopes that some of the men I served with will recognize our unit, me, themselves, etc. and get in contact with me. I would welcome a response from anyone who served in the 191st. Ordnance Batallion during the time mentioned. If you recognize anyone in these pictures or have any information on this person, please email Chuck. Lastly my intentions for the following pages are to hopefully bring back some good memories for those of us who were there of the wonderful men and women we served with. Unfortunately... I realize they will also bring back some memories that we have all tried hard to forget over the span of many years. For that I am sorry. I think most will enjoy the pics. At this time there are 13 pages. I just got a 'slide' scanner so there will be many more coming as time permits.

time. They were a lot of fun.

rations and traded with a chef at the
officers quarters for a box. We would then
let them soak in beer all day, then cook
them at the end of a hard day.
