McCurry "Whiskey 2"
McCurry, H&S 3/5 I was incountry
March to October 1970 after requesting a transfer from 1st MAW (REAR)
in Iwakuni, Japan.
I was a radio operator (call sign Whiskey 2) for an 81mm. mortar
section, first on Hill 37, near Dai Loc on Rte 4, in Quang Nam Province,
from the spring to the summer.
to Hill 52, also on Rte. 4, further west, in the summer. In September,
we moved over to FSB Ross, in the coastal plain, pretty close to
the Que Sons. I was lucky, dodging incoming was my closest exposure
to danger. It missed.~Ed McCurry
