Bill Posey's Charlie Battery Photos - 1970 to 71
Bill Posey writes: "I arrived in Vietnam In April 1970 at 90th Replacement Center. I was then assigned to 6/27 Artillery “C” Battery in Phu Loi. I was a "Shake-and-Bake" buck sergeant and was assigned to gun 3. About two weeks after I arrived we got orders that we were going to relocate in the fish Hook area. We jumped around building firebases, most of which I cannot remember the names of anymore. It was a solid five weeks of hard work, although it was exciting."

Ken Wright's A Meeting With A Mine
A great addition to the site has recently
arrived from Ken Wright, #1 Gun Chief, Charlie Battery,
1970-71. Between September 1970 and April 1971 Ken shot 8mm
film of Charlie Battery as it moved from Fire Support Base to FSB in
Vietnam. Last year Ken's son transferred this film to VHS
video and recently Ken had those tapes transferred to DVD. Ken
was generous to share some of those movies with us.
