I was in Support company and Alpha, but was tight with a bunch of Bulk Fuel guys from a couple of operations. These guys were all bulk fuelers. Most were probably gone, but it won't hurt. The ranks may have been higher, if you knew them. Cpl Bill Page, LCpl Ray Bennett, PFC Kevin Bacon, LCpl Freddie Watkins, Cpl JC Williams, GySgt Williams, Lt or possibly Capt. Egan, Lt Harbison

Went thru J.E.S.T. school in the zambales provence! Then on to Camp Fuji for cold weather training! Hated those mickey mouse boots!
Rotated back to the states, Assigned to (Hell Bent) Charlie co. 2nd plt Eng. support battalion. did time at the stumps tearing up that airfield. Remember those a-frames out by the airfield? and that little damn PX? lol
