HHT 2/11 ACR
1968 - 1969
Spec. 4 Charlie Durham served in HHT 2/11 ACR. In a letter, Charlie
writes, "The last time I was in Quan Loi I almost got killed having about a month to
go. We got four rockets at mid day. I heard the first two explode just inside
the perimeter. I froze for about two seconds. Some I Troopers hollered
'in-coming'.. I took off running just as fast as I could to my track. I just
got around the corner of the other side when the rocket exploded real loud. It blew
me around like a rag doll. My ears were ringing for two or three days".
Charlie now resides in Nortonville, Kentucky. He has submitted these
