"Reaching Out." Guided from a first-aid station
to a helicopter evacuation clearing, yet still wanting to turn back
to his dead commanding office, a marine gunnery sergeant instinctively
moves toward a mud-splattered comrade. Wounded for the third time,
these would be his last minutes in Vietnam before being flown to a
hospital ship at sea and, eventually home. Mutter Ridge, Nui Cay Tri,
October 5, 1966.
