Sapper damage at Di An, October 13, 1971.  No flight line perimeter lights made it easy for sappers to sneak in and do the deed.  Crash and rescue guys could not fight fire because the fire truck had no operational pumps.

A German Shepard cross...big with curled feral tail and drooping eye from one of many fights....none of which he lost from June 1971 to February 1972.  Most folks at Tay Ninh and Di An during this time will recognize Monster.  He had a no problem hopping on a UH-1 as long as he was invited.  Monster was an important part of company life.
