My name is Frank D Ezzo I am the combat engineer who was dumb enough to be on a d-5 dozer and flatten the top of Nui Ba Ra mountain to make LZ Thomas in Jan 1970
Hi does anyone have anymore information/ pictures on the jeep me and my dad have just got one 🙂
All the best
Don’t see any pics of me burning shit mixed with diesel in half-55-gallon drums. When me and every other grunt were in our base camp we were assigned duties stirring and breathing this mixture as it burned. Even when it wasn’t your turn, the smoke drifted into everyone’s hooch or tent. I’m happy Iraq and LeJune vets are due compensation beyond any VA disability benefit they may receive. How about us viet nam shit burning vets for our rashes, HBP, and breathing and related blood problems?
