Sgt. Battles, Above the Rest!

Sgt. Battles and me were comrades in Company C 1st 327 Infantry, 1st Bde 101st Airborne in 1965-66. He arrived in C Company in December '65 having come from the 82nd Airborne. He was assigned as a Squad Leader of an 81mm mortar squad. He came to an outfit that had been in Nam for 5 months already and, like alot of guys coming out to Nam, Sgt. Battles was carrying some extra weight. After several weeks in the field he was obviously thinner. Now Charles was a big man and had a great sense of humor. One morning we had the chance to bathe in a stream we were next to and he was talking about all the weight he had dropped and said, "look here Cook, I'm as neat around the waist as a wasp, and big across the chest like a Budweiser hoss," and this made us all laugh. I remember Sgt. Battles as a good friend and brave trooper. He was killed 29 June 1969 w/C 1/327 exactly 3 yrs to the day we said goodbye at Dak To.
