I left the University of Missouri in January of 1970 with a degree in wildlife management from the school of agriculture. A few days later I took a trip down into Arkansas on a whim, not knowing exactly what I wanted to do, just hoping someone down there might want to hire a naturalist.
The hot, humid weather of South Vietnam had me sweating profusely. Fairly new in country, I had not quite become acclimatized to the extreme weather conditions. Lulled into a temporary stupor by the heat and the incessant “whomp, whomp, whomp,” of Huey helicopter blades, I returned to full alert when I felt the chopper drop altitude quickly and heard the M 134 Magnum (mini-gun) begin firing. My M-16A1 instinctively hit my shoulder before my eyes opened. I was ready to return fire.
