    Mike Reed -KIA- Rookie mistake by 3/12 S3

    IM0000161.jpgIMG_20191011_0001.jpg

    Above is the story in the Btn. 3/12 log of how L/Cpl Mike Reed was killed in action in Vietnam. He was ordered to drive his Mighty Mite w/radio down the dirt path to ford the river. The bridge had been destroyed some time before and the whole area had been bobby trapped. He got about 1/2 way down the hill. I was at the top of the hill with my 3/4 ton truck. Had I been ordered to take my truck down the hill I would have been the KIA. Mike is seated on the right. Click on the report to enlarge it.

    Thanks for sharing. I think this should be moved to the wall of honor sub forum.
