I was an RTO in Vietnam. I had my choice of an M-6o machine-gun or a PRC 25 radio. I’ve always been kind of chatty, I took the radio. When I came home I was assigned to the “Honor Guard” at Ft. Myers where I helped honor veterans who passed away. My platoon were pall bearers who also folded and presented the flag to the family.
