"The monkey on my shoulders here was stolen from an Army Hootch when Thiel, Austin and myself used our Tactical Skills to take him to the FLICK with us when we were in the rear area at Phu Bai. We were on our way to the FLICK when we spotted him, and we all agreed that he wanted to see the FLICK too."

Doug Maier, Mike 3/5  Served in Vietnam from early May of '68, and left in May of '69. When I came incountry to Mike Company, our rear area was Phu Bai, and the Company was being man'ed back up after taking a real ass kicking from Charlie. 

I'm looking for the Marines I served with, if anybody knows where the guys in the pictures are, please contact me.      

Semper fi, ~Doug Maier

  Right before I went to Vietnam, I was my older brother's Best Man in his Wedding.

Showing the difference in size of the M-79 Heat Round, and the 5.56mm round fired by the M-16.

He was called Hillbilly by all. If anyone knows his REAL name PLEASE contact me. Hillbilly was K.I.A. with only 28 days left in country.

Back row, from left, Philip Oguin, Sullivan, Frank Lito, Ed Morales, Doug Maier. 


Marine on the left is Pappy, and one of the best as far as I'm concerned.  He saved my life when we were on Bridge Security on an ambush at the base of some mountains next to a grave yard. And Marine on the right (??can't remember??).

Pappy at left side of picture, we were being trucked somewhere until the road runs out, then it's HUMP TIME.
