Karl Sherck's Charlie Battery Photos
Phouc Vinh - 1967


I was drafted into the U.S. Army in December 1966.  I eventually ended up in Vietnam assigned first to Charlie Battery 6/27th Artillery from May 14, 1967 to July 22, 1967.

I was transferred to Alpha Battery on July 23, 1967 at Quan Loi and remained there the remainder of my tour of duty in Vietnam.  While with Alpha I was assigned to #2 Gun Section until I started driving a mess hall truck to An Loc in November 1967.  I continued as a driver until January 1968 when I returned to #2 Gun Section.  I went to Australia on my R & R in January 1968.  I left Vietnam on April 26, 1968.

I now live in Amherst, Ohio with my wife, happily married for 43 years. I worked at US Steel in Lorain, Ohio for 33 years. I retired in 2001. My hobby is old cars. I have a 1936 Chevy 2 door sedan, and a 1929 Ford truck.
