Friendship!!!

My name Norman Doyle. Fako was in my group and carried the m-60 machine for my squad. Fako always had that funny grin and he and I was such great friends. Which I will never ever forget him. Sorry I didn’t know the web page for him was here. May he Rest In Peace!!!

Never forgotten.

I was on the second bird . Fako was on the first. Went over to him to see where he layed out his people. We were standing next to each other when the mine went off. He was facing it and I had my back to it. My ruck stopped most of the blast from the wast up. John wasn’t as lucky. I think the same bird who dropped us off came back around and picked us up. Took us back to the aid station. Saved my life. Throw, Jackson and Soha were also wounded. Got out of the hospital and Army Jan. 25, 1971. Stanly Rainer was the other guy to the right in the picture. Always felt I stepped on the mine and was so sorry.I know Fako is missed and remembered.
