This occured while I was at the Phu Bai Launch site. It was monsoon season. Weather had closed down in the AO, no teams on the ground. Benny Adkins NCOIC from the Quang
Tri launch site was visiting. Most of the launch site crew were assembled in the club drinking a "Recon Wreck" MSG Dover, our NCOIC and Benny got into an argument, about, of all things, which launch site had lost the most recon men. Their verbal argument soon escalated into a fist fight. Being one of the junior nco's in the bar ( E-5) I thought that was no way for two of our senior, well-decorated, combat experienced (Adkins had been in the A-Shau A camp that was overrun and was severly wounded yet returned to RVN) to be conducting themselves so I tried (foolish me) to break up the fight by stepping between the two combatants. I took a punch to the jaw for my trouble and as we were near the door of the bar I simply put my foot on the two embattled veterans and pushed them both out into the muddy street in the pouring rain. This failed to dampern their aggresion and they continued rolling about in the slime trying to win by KO.
I went back to my drinking to ease the pain in my jaw and the next morning it was said that after they had worn themselves out Adkins spent the night in the team holding hooch on the airstrip and Dover ended up in his own cot in the barracks.

I ran on RT New York out of CCC in Kontum. I was there 1970/71 timeframe while John Plaster was flying Covey and Bob Howard was the Recon Company CO. My 60mm story and the Brightlight AAR in the Briefback Forum were from that period. The Brightlight AAR happened while I was a student at the MACVSOG Recon Teamleaders School therefore called One Zero School. That school was mandatory before you would be allowed to run Cross-Border Operations. They wanted all of the Americans on the team to be able to take the team over if need be. After you read Plaster's Books, you can see why.

Take care.
Martin
Toby Todd here. Ran on RT California with Joe Walker, 1-0, the same time Martin was doing his RT New York thingy.

I have all of John Plaster's books about SOG. IMHO, no one has done a better job of telling OUR story.

Martin, c'ya at SOAR, I hope.

Later.

Toby
1-2, RT CAlifornia

I just never heard it referred to as "thingy" before. I'll shut up now.

Toby,

As a Quiet Professional all you need do is post a picture of an avatar you desire (or tell us where to find it), we will take care of the rest.
