I was with Lima 3/5 in Hue. The Marine with the M79 is me. Photo was taken 2/22/68 by Cpl. John Pennington during the final assault on the Thoung Thu Gate in front of the Imperial Palace. I understand John was KIA 6/9/68. As the picture was taken we came under intense NVA fire. Tom Falk and John Allison were KIA is the first barrage of enemy fire. Many others were wounded. Brian Mayer of Long Island NY came to our aid on a mule. He evaced many Marines while under heavy fire. Brian was finally awarded the Silver Star in 1995 during a ceremony at 8th and I by the Asst. Commandant. Lima Co. Vietnam Vets were honored to witness the ceremony. -Submitted by: Dennis Freed [firstname.lastname@example.org] 2009-02-18
