Picture of B Co 1/502 was taken in December 1967 before the second and third brigade of the 101st airborne division shipped to Vietnam. Int he images below 2nd brigade commander Colonel John Cushman recalls some 40 years later on some statistics amazing, horrendous and emotional. Units involved were 1/502, 1/501 & 2/501. I can remember some guys getting wounded 2, 3 or 4 times and still returning to the field , or getting wounded and staying in the field. Maybe this is the reason why we started to get leg replacements in early March 68 AATW – Ronny Ymbras
