Military Police are not get assigned infantry duties, except when they are. To protect the largest military base in Vietnam two general officers sat down to talk, one came from the 9th Infantry Division and the other from the 18th Military Police Brigade. The Infantryman was severely strapped for personnel, could the 18th take a tasking at once for which it was completely untrained, unprepared and caught flat-footed?

Making a bad year better

Category: Personal Experiences

Over a lifetime some years are better than others, and sometimes a particular year is especially bad. 1969 was one of those bad years for me, as my childhood friend and fellow Marine Lee Roy Herron was killed in Vietnam, and I almost died after a three story fall. But three decades later I learned that Herron had died a hero, receiving the Navy Cross posthumously. Since learning the actual circumstances of his death, I have been on a mission to preserve Lee Roy's memory, heroism, and legacy. In so doing, perhaps I have made 1969 a better year for his family--and me.
