"Mike Kratz was standing next to me [Mike Grisey] on my right. Check out the M-16 magazine I'm holding with a bullet hole through it. This was a CCN [Command and Control North] mission (10 shipper) that we flew lead, and got the shit shot out of us on the insertion. I believe 7 out of the 10 birds got shot-up pretty good, and we limped in and barely made an emergency on FB [fire support base] whip. As I recall, Tom Everhart and Roach were also on this mission. This was Bill Konyu's first combat mission, and we lost him on his second combat mission two days later." Mike Grisey, Mike Kratz, Bill Konyu (KIA, 2ND From right), and Garcia. Photo by Tom Everhart.
