Very cool, thanks. I finished this not long ago (http://www.amazon.com/Tan-Phu-Special-Forces-23/dp/0804116164). Other than the slight diff in spelling of the place-name, is this the same location? If so, I wonder if he was before or followed A-23.

Was a great read; clearly a very Special time & the people to be there.

Thanks again for your sharing, and extended as well to him for his service.
Very neat.

Wow, cool. I'll have to get that for him. His b day is tomorrow..he'll be 79...

Wish I knew of that earlier. I dont know if it was before or after A23, all I know his VN days were fairly earlier, early to mid 60's.

ETA: Just read the first coulpe pages that you can preview....he was there/around at that time. he tells me they went out looking for Rowe and Pitzer, damn...I really gotta get him this...thanks...

Damn good read, good window into that time from what I can tell. Hope he enjoys it.

Creme would be him contributing his own history, juxtaposed against that in time. You're a good S-i-L.
