Award long over due for him. I spent some time with the 9th also. I wonder if his rifle was the Matty Mattel or the M14? We had both available at that time. As I watched the video, I was amazed at how old we all look now.

Guess on my part, it was the Matty Mattel. I came into country about month after that took place in I-Corp. It seem most line units had AR's then. 8-)
