This is the only picture I have of "Frenchy"
full name unknown. "Frenchy" did our cooking. The bodies were
the only two we recovered from the 12May67 attack on Papa 2/4.
They were part of the "suicide squad".
I believe the body in front was the one assigned
the job of killing Phil Prince and myself in our hooch.
This will strike a nerve with anyone who remembers the monsoon.
On a perfectly clear, warm, spring afternoon, it started to rain.
I ran into my hooch, grabbed my camera, and this is what it
looked like by the time I took the picture. Less than three
minutes of rain turned Papa 2 into a quagmire!
