Hi Steve,I'm a new member and this is my first posting.
My brother {Walter Silva} and I were assigned to the 84th EBC C company April,1963 at Fort Ord.We both "shipped" out to Qui Nhon in 1965 where we served out our 3 year enlistments.I referred to the troop ship as the " general leroy eltinge" and still remember the 18 day trip that ended up taking a month.After we transfered onto the Barrett we were not allowed up on deck so Vietman looked pretty good after that boat ride across the Pacific.We both served 2 1/2 years with C company and were also known as the "dawton brothers" because we were always in some kind of trouble.I was 17 and my brother 18 and I know now that our first sargent gave us alot of breaks!Thats all for now,Marv Silva
