  1. This one sounds like something you might see in an old Jerry Lewis movie. I was an Army medic assigned to the 24th Evac Hospital (Long Binh, RVN) in 1967. The following story is a condensed version of one that appears in the recently published book "Long Daze at Long Binh," a humorous memoir about my tour in Vietnam. One day we were alerted that our new Chief Nurse was about to arrive at Tan Son Nhut airbase in Saigon, 14 miles southwest of Long Binh. Since no big shots were available on such short notice, the CO sent me to pick her up in his jeep, along with PFC Rossini riding shotgun.

The following story is a condensed version of one that appears in the recently published book "Long Daze at Long Binh," a humorous memoir about my tour in Vietnam. My co-author and fellow medic Fred was working in the Emergency Room early one evening when a call came in on the radio from a Dustoff (medical evacuation helicopter) describing the casualties they were bringing in. Three were WIA's while the fourth was the victim of a dog bite. The pilot added that "we’re also bringing the dog for observation, over.”
  3. Hello folks, I was an Army medic assigned to the 24th Evac Hospital (Long Binh, RVN) in 1967. I've been a professional writer and editor for over 40 years, but for most of that time I never considered writing about Vietnam. I was never in combat, so why would anyone be interested in my experiences? On the other hand, over the years I've told many amusing "Vietnam stories" at social gatherings, after which someone would often say "You oughta write a book!" But I still didn't think I could remember enough stuff to be able to accomplish such a feat. That is, until I had a 40th-year reunion
