To Jerry Watson. I was with D Co. 84th ENGR BN SW of Quinon 1967 to 4-68. As I remember,, a unit of the 513th was just in the next compound. One night the VC shot a rocket into the main generator and they had no power for the permeter lights. a 1/4 ton trk. driver, an indian an I (3) were ordered to carry a generator from our compound over to the 513th. We had a M60 mounted on the trk,and we started firing when we exited our gate until we entered the 513th compound and delivered the generator.( Saved the night as it were ). After we returned to our compound, it was as if we had came in after a normal work day, NO BIG DEAL. Thanks for your service and I'm sorry I didn't read your comments earlier. PS, I was one of the grader operators working the night shift on the road going toward the ammo dump. Thanks for the good spreading of gravel.
