Captain's Letter Vietnam War May 24, 1968


This letter/postcard was written by a Captain, who was in Vietnam, May 24, 1968. From the letter…..

   Two nights ago we were mortared again her in 9th Engineers Compound. Took 21 rounds of 82MM mortar, same as last time. No casualties this time however as only 2 of the 21 rounds landed inside the berm. They were way across the other side of the comp9ound from “A” Company, but it still was no fun running from my quarters down to the company area. Hope all is well at home, at least quiet. Hoss is getting to be quite a horse! Wish you could send me a picture of her and the rest of you. Guess I’ll go to bed early.

Love to all,
