Wilburn J. Holland Jr. - Marines

Cold, damp and lonely nights spent in bunkers around the Cua Viet River and Dong Ha.

The mounting bodies delivered to Delta Med graves registration.

The torn and distorted bodies of friends and comrades being placed in body bags and being prepared to be shipped out.

The sunken, shallow look in the eyes of my brothers as we prepared for another patrol and endless night of sniper fire and mortar barrages.
