I tried.....

You don't have to be in the field to be affected by that damn war. I was a clerk at Americal HQ. I handled the 1/52 and the 1/46 personnel records. Many times I would make an excuse to call in one of "my guys" from the field for a day to go over a record. One day we got a directive to find guys who were married and served in Korea immediately prior to coming to Nam. They were to get 1 day off time in Nam for every two days in Korea. I scoured my records and found Sixto. I called him in and felt the joy that he felt because he was going home months early.....then 7 days later...a clerk from KIA came and asked for his records. I was devastated. I knew him only briefly but it is a scar that will never go away.

Sixto - Mr. Everything in combat

Sixto was the "go to" guy in our Platoon. He was our M-60 guy, our fix-it guy(when on a Fire Base), and our comic relief when in a tough situation. He died trying to get our Company out of a fix. He was a hero to most of us because he kept the rest of us going when we thought we couldn't. He humped extra water for guys he knew would need it and never complained about his Machine Gun and ammo load. He spoke about his Galveston love, Lucy all the time. He was one of two guys that I called my best Buddies in Nam. I miss him every day. He was one of the reason's we had such a tight combat unit.
