My Audio Tapes From Vietnam

My Audio Tapes

"Greetings Once Again From Vietnam"

During my one year tour of duty with K Troop from April 17, 1968 until April 9, 1969 I sent home to my mother and father 22 audio cassette tapes.  The first tape was made on June 6, 1968.  My last tape was made on October 16, 1968.   Excerpts from some those tapes are presented here.  I must caution you that some of the tapes are a graphic representation of warfare.  As you can see by the titles, some depict actual battles with enemy forces.  Some tapes may contain colorful language.  Parental discretion is advised.
