Everything an RTO has to be and more . . .

Eddie Williams was my radio/telephone operator (RTO) in 3rd Platoon, Company C, 2/18, 1st Inf Div. I was the platoon leader. He was everything an RTO has to be and more. He knew what I needed to know, and what needed to be reported to the company CO. He was always nearby, regardless of the situation or how dangerous it was—and that is what finally got him killed. I left the company in May, 1966, but Eddie continued on as RTO with the new platoon leader, Lt. Peter Odenweller. They were killed together in the wild day-long Battle of Srok Dong on June 30, 1966. I was there also with my Recon Platoon and was told by the men in Charlie 3, of Eddie’s fierce, incredible bravery. Lt. Odenweller was awarded the Silver Star. Eddie should have received one too.

You can read more about the battle in the recent VFW book edited by Richard K. Kolb: “Brutal Battles of Vietnam.” I have also written about Eddie and the whole Vietnam experience in: “A Haunting Beauty.”
