"This is actually taken at the MP Squad AO, LZ North English. Sergeant Bird is unhooking the antenna. Bill Barr (I believe) is driving, Terry Smith is working the radio, probably asking the main desk on LZ English, 'how ya read me?'. Ed Christman, sergeant on the main desk would reply, 'gotcha lima charlie!' Pevy, of 4th Battalion wanted one last ride with his buddy, Sergeant Bird. Bird was severely WIA in an early January 1970 mortar attack on LZ North English. That is the same attack in which Major Lewis, the XO was KIA. LZ English, Pevy DEROS'ing."
