We Were Soldiers

Dave Drob was a fine young officer who represented the highest ideals of service to country. He was a platoon leader in the 137th light equipment company, a unit of the 19th combat engineer battalion, and was killed in action in an annihilation ambush of an engineer convoy in Tam Quan village along route QL1. I met Dave Drob at the repo-depo when we were both new in country, and went through the assignment process with him from brigade to group and finally to battalion. We arrived at the 19th HQ in the afternoon, and that evening received our assignments to different units within the 19th. In the morning before we went out to our units, our assignments were switched. Because the battalion was strung out along some 40 km of QL1 we saw each other infrequently in the ensuing two months, but I did have a short conversation with him just a few days before he was killed. I have never forgotten the advice he gave me then, just as I have never forgotten Dave Drob. He will always be remembered.
