These are a few photos of
the 1st Cavalry MET Section
Meteorology Unit of the 1st Air Cavalry Division).
We were attached to 2nd Field Forces and supported ABrty 6/27th
Arty. We were co-located with 406th Maintancenorth
of Alpha Battery. I was there from May 1969 to April 1970.
[Note: Les served with David Bedard in the MET
Section, who has written "I
Remember Quan Loi".]
I was on duty at the Met Section the night of August 12, 1969.
I remember taking up a position at the back entrance that looked
out on Alpha Btry watching the RPG's fly between my position and
Alpha Btry. That was a night I will never forget. Choppers (Hueys
and Cobras) were like bees at a hive. Glad they and the dusters
were there. I'd like to thank all those fly-boys and the 11th
ACR or whoever drove the dusters for getting us through the
night. My first wedding anniversary was August 17th and my wife
read about the attack and tells me she did not know if she would
be celebrating or grieving. She sure was glad to get my next
letter. I sure felt sorry for the family's of the guys we lost
I try to remember the good times I had and the GREAT guy's I
served with. Les Morris
