Piece of shrapnel from a NVA/VC Rocket

Recommended Posts

This is a piece of shrapnel from a CHI-COM Rocket. It's 7"x12". It was brought home by L.Cpl Rutter Ist FSR/FLC III Marine Amp/ Fre.

It's from an attack of the Marine Base at Danang Vietnam Sept 67. It says "GOD WAS WITH ME THIS TIME" and "I WAS WOUNDED AND GOT A MEDAL"

Oh my gosh I love that. I have a similar piece brought home by an Air Force vet friend stationed at Bien Hoa. He told me that he dug this out of a crater after an NVA rocket attack. He also gave me a photo of he and his buddies taken that day inspecting the crater.
