My name is Steve Heltzel and I arrived in SVN July of 8
69 and was assigned to 1st 175 MM guns. I worked in the office as a clerk. During my time there, since everyone was pulling out did my share of guard duty and humped rounds for the guns when needed.
I was transferred from one company to the other as they were leaving until everyone had left in October and then went to Okinawa.Due to my short time being there I didn’t really learn names just nick names.
The thing I recall the best is when we were leaving and turning things over the ARVIN how they inspected everything and the M-16s and the magazines had to be spotless. One of the sergeants made the comment that “they were clean enough to drop.”
I;m glad to have found this site, keep up the good work.
