|PHOTOS BELOW BY RANDY GIVENS-MAGGIE VISIT AT CCN'S CLUB, DEC 31, 69 (Might have been X-mas eve though)- At midnight, we took her outside for a look as our guys "fired the wall" (firepower display) into Chinstrap (Marble) mountain. Spooky was on alert and was soon overhead and came up on the camp defense net. The conversation went something like: Spooky: "Good evening Gentlemen, this is Spooky 69. I notice that you may be having some difficulty down there. May I be of assistance?" CCN: "No Spooky, we've got it under control. Thanks much for your assistance." I'm not sure what "Danger Close" would have been for Spooky, but I'm sure our outpost on top of the mountain would have been concerned if Spooky had fired. :-)|

with CCN troops & Seabees in CCN club. Spike was a Vietnamese
orphan who was informally "adopted" by some guys in Recon company. He lived
with them and even stayed with them up on the top of Chinstrap, at our
outpost up there. Someone finally figured out that there was a security
risk in all that, and hanging around with a bunch of G.I.'s wasn't getting
Spike the kind of education he needed to succeed in life. So, it was
arranged that Spike went to a boarding type school in DaNang. Left to
Right.- SeaBee petty officer/photographer - SFC Ammon Sink, NCOIC, CCN S-2 -
SFC Jerry Skiorsky (spelling?), CCN S-2 Collections NCO. He made a round of
all the local intelligence producing units in the DaNang area and brought
them back so we could avoid another attack like that which hit CCN in Aug
1968. Thanks to him, we were able to cross reference all those intel
reports and frequently predicted where the VC were going to set up to shoot
rockets into DaNang. He was also our "liaison" guy with the German Hospital
ship in the bay, the Helgaland. After I got shot up in Marble Mountain, the
medics at the 95th EVAC Hospital wouldn't let me go to their club, so Jerry
went to the hospital ship and brought me back a six pack of Beck's Export
Beer. I shared one with my doctor and he then prescribed the rest of them
for me. Pissed the nurses off, but they were a cranky bunch anyway. -

|DALE DEHNKE, & DANNY ENTRICAN|
I was really close to Dale Dehnke. We came in country together. He watched out for me as he was a few years older than me. I found this photo and wanted to send it for your website. In October, 1971, I traveled to California from Missouri to talk with Dale's family. When I got there, I just couldn't do it. I feel extremely terrible now that I didn't talk to them. Thanks for the great memorial. Thanks, Sgt. Randy L. Landers , 1/0 RT Oklahoma CCN 1/2 RT Wedge CCS email@example.com (To view Dale's memorial, click-->Dale)

Recon Company CCN made in early 1970, somewhere between late January and early March. I believe it was made the day that GEN Abrams came to the camp and pinned medals on the team memberS of ST Alabama and there may have been someone else. The original is very grainy and it was probably made with a Olympus PenEE but I am not sure. In the photo CPT Stewart was Recon Co CO, SGT (SSG??) Fitzgerald was the guidon bearer. MSG Bob Cole is at the head of the far right rank. I am at the head of the third rank from the left. I recognize other faces but have forgotten names. ALL THE WAY ------Larry Greene

The photo was taken at Camp Long Than during the one-zero school. I was Training Officer there during July thru Oct 1970 and my recollection is that Frank was in a holding pattern as he awaited a decision on his heroics that led to the MOH. I believe Ed was down there for training (either it for one-zero or one of the airborne sessions). Mike Ash
