I RECOGNIZE A FRIEND IN DELTA 15 WEB SITE AS K.I.A.FEB. 15,1968 IT WAS COUPLE OF DAYS AFTER CROSSING THE PERFUME RIVER IN TO THE CITADEL AT NIGHT IN SOME VIETNAMESE JUNK BOATS AND WHILE CROSSING , SUDDENLY ERUPTED IN A FLURRY OF RED TRACERS, NO BODY WAS HIT JUST SOME SMOKE FROM ONE OF THE JUNK BOATS, ON FEB. 15, 68 WE WERE ON A SWEEPING- OPERATION ON THE SOUTH SIDE , THAN WE STOP FOR A WHILE , ME AND FERGUSON WERE STANDING SIDE BY SIDE LOOKING OUT OF THE DOOR , THAN I HEARD A BULLET HIT THE WALL BEHIND US KICKING UP SOME DUST, NOT KNOWING THAT A SNIPER HAD HIT FERGUSON, A FEW SECONDS LATER HE WAS DEAD, HE WAS HIT JUST BELOW HIS BELT .AND Q IT'S BEEN 32 YEARS SINCE, I DON'T THINK THAT I WILL EVER FORGET THOSE DAYS IN FEB.
