he was helping to tear down caved in. The pictures on this page were provided by

This is a search patrol led by Lt. D. McConville in late August or early September
walking southwest of camp (Reil-Davis) toward the mountain range. The previous
evening’s incoming mortar rounds (coming from the mountain range) stopped short
of the compound. We believe the guy on the left of the path is Gordon. Walking on
the path is George C. Davenport.

Hootch found up in the hills during the search patrol.
