Ambush Academy - Cu Chi Base Camp. "I'm the short guy with my head down carrying the M79 Grenade Launcher and M60 Machinegun ammunition around my neck. We didn't loose that war. The whiners and complainers and politicians back in the US lost it for us. We also were winning when I left!!!!" — comments by Richard Roland Bradley.

Earle Smith & Captain Marcus Anderson. Oasis Nov. or Dec. 1967. Smasher 8. "I have included pictures of Smasher 8. This was a liaison section of the 6/14. I first went there (at Jackson Hole) at the end of October '67 or the beginning of November. We moved the day after I got there to the Oasis. Captain Anderson was in charge. I believe his first name was Marcus. Around January '68 I was sent to B Btry FDC and was at Soui Doi During Tet. B Btry then moved to Dak To and later to Ben Het. Around Sept. of '68 I was sent to the new D Btry at the Oasis. Our Captain was Captain Verdel." -Earle Smith. Photo by Earle Smith, 6th Battalion, 14th Artillery Regiment, RVN 1966-67.
