Well for the first time I was scared. We stayed at our posts for the rest
of the night. Two jets made a sweep in our area and brother they did some
damage. The V.C. that were there got a mouthful of lead.
I'm sure the papers will be full of it. As far as you could
see the sky was lit up with flares - it seemed like all of a sudden
the V.C. just opened up. So far they haven't tried for our camp. If
they did hit us - in about 10 minutes there would be 20 choppers jumping
dead in their program. That's one good thing about working here.
The choppers can't afford to lose this place and if they want to they
can do some damage. I think the V.C. know it.
I just got a new report saying last night was the most action over here since last August.
I knew something was happening.
It's about 9 o'clock at night now and I'm getting ready to sack
out. I hope I get a full nights sleep tonight. If they start that shit
again tonight I might just get mad.
I'm okay - I think the reason I was scared was all the noise and knowing
they were their. Now I know I'm in a war and instead of being scared I'm
tired. I swear if they wake me up tonight I'm going to be one mad G.I.
Well I'm going to try and get some sleep. Say a prayer.Mark
