Memories For This Unit

Larry Zunker

Best Moment
During a long weekend Zunker and I headed to Maine for some bear hunting. Drove all night to get there on a Sunday. We ate meals with the family that ran the place and they placed us on baited stands each day. Though we didn't see a bear, much less bag one, we did see some moose and shot a cooler full of squirrels. Brought the squirrels back to D.C. and cooked them up for a very tasty meal.


Chain of Command
Lt. Hepler

Other Memories
Party at the Vietnamese Embassy. One of the instructors at the school was married to the ambassador and she had us over for a party. Food was all Vietnamese, lots of adult beverages for the taking etc. It was interesting
