Looking for anyone who served with my brother. He was a forward observer attached to marines. We're having difficulty getting military records and corroboration would be helpful. He's very ill and we might not get records in time. Suggestions welcome. Please contact his brother, Roger (me) at firstname.lastname@example.org

Jun 1969 - Nov 1969
After orientation (FDO School at Camp Evans?) I was with Battalion FDC while Bravo was on the Khe Sahn Op. I flew to Khe Sahn as Pay Officer (probably July), the day after a Marine short round fell in the Battery killing one of the gun chiefs. Joined Bravo as FDO upon their return to Con Thien. After deactivation I transfered to Bravo 2nd/94th. I remember life at Con Thien as sleep, shoot, stay wet and duck incoming. Like to hear where you guys are now.
For the second half of my tour. FO with a range finder spotting device at
C-2, Con Thein and LZ Sarge and then XO of Bravo Battery 2nd/94th from move back
