Blanco and Gunner.
Early morning, Feb 1968.
Shortly after this photo was taken,
we boarded the chopper for an air assault
into the Phan Thiet countryside.


Blanco and Fess Parker
Fess Parker, who played Davy Crockett in 
Walt Disney's movie "The Alamo", was visiting 
patients at Long Binh Hospital where I was 
recuperating from a shell fragment wound.
I stayed 40 days and was released soon
after this photo was taken.
