I was 1/503rd Infantry with the 173D in Viet Nam. I did 19 months with "The Herd." I started off as an 11Charlie with the 4.2 inch mortars. Got into the Recon Platoon 11Foxtrot and then went to 2nd Platoon of D Company 11Bravo. My last 7 months in Nam I was a sniper.
Just found this one brother. It is somehow very familiar isn't it? I was 11Bravo trained, and was with E Co. Recon 3/503rd (11Foxtrot). Went to Sniper School at Cha Rang, which was run by 5th Group. Was at both LZ Uplift and at An Khe.
So the both of us also carried the Tango2 designation.
