“Hey!”
“Yeah?”
“We there yet?”
“Nah man we in Alaska.”
“What the fuck is Alaska?”
“Northern state above Canada.”
“Its American?”
“Yeah.”
“You’re lyin to me.”
“Why would I do that? Alaska is part of the USA.”
“Man these are fuckin asians walkin round here.”
“Nevermind.”
“Hey!”
“What?”
“Whats your name?”
“Capreo.”
“That your first name?”
“No, last.”
“Why the fuck would you tell me your last name? Whats your full name?”
“David Capreo.”
“Finally, nice to meet you Capreo” I gave him a look. A long annoyed look. He didn’t seem to care.
“The names Duncan Hughes”
“Nice to meet you Duncan.”
“Never call me Duncan. Call me Hughes or master Hughes Or…” he trailed off
“Alright. Nice to meet you Hughes.”
“Nice to meet you too Capreo.” He smiled. I forced a smile back. We shook hands. His hands were warm and sweaty. Like the inside of aused boxing glove he wouldn’t stop shaking my hand I pulled away. He smiled and walked off to meet more of the 182nd Infantry.
We were loaded into a commerical plane from Anchorage straight to Vietnam. We were usually supposed to stop in some country before hand get de-breifed set up and get our companies together. But the NVA and VC were getting tight and moving strong to the south from Cambodia and northern Vietnam.
We landed in Chu Lai the main medical base and headquarters of the USARM and USMC in the “Vietnam Operation” we were sent out onto the tar the runway was hot. Muggy. Disgusting. We ligned up jeeps drove by and a few platoons loaded onto a the chopper we came off of. They were headed to Nga Kang Luk I overheard the officers talking I remembered from Asian culture studies in 4th grade that Nga Kang Luk was deep in the north territories why would that be? Why were they going?
“Lign Up!”
“Form line by your companies!” A strong faced captain stard at us a cigarette in his mouth he had on a black flack jacket with norm camo and I saw a huge 60’ slung on her back and a m-16 in his hand. He cigarette was falling ases to the ground he didn’t seem to notice it was down to bout an inch. His eyes darted back and forth in slits id didn’t know if it was from the sun or he was just a squinty person. I flinched as he stard right at me spitting out the cigarette.
“What the hell do you think your doing Private?” He looked right at me
“Uh me sir?” I asked knowing of course it was me.
“Yes you! Why arent you with your company?” I heard snickering and looked around. Men were gathered into four groups tlking to each other mostly just staring at me. I realized I hadent moved from my spot.
“Well?”
“You see sir, I don’t have a company im from advanced infantry in Monmouth, New Jersey.”
“And you were with the 182nd Infantry why?”
“I was assigned by my Captain”
The captain lit another cigarette took a puff. And looked at me and flipped out a clipboard “Name.”
“David Capreo”
“Capreo…Capreo…..” he flipped through the pages they were colored yellow until he reached the orange
“Well no godamn wonder you’re here.” He was still looking at my profile
“Capreo.”
“yes sir?”
“Report to the officer tent you’re a corporal for Omega company. In the 125th Adbanced Infantry Division.” He flipped the pages closed. He pointed at a tent. I nodded and trotted like literally trotted over. I walked in it was a smaller tent hen io expected a short Sergeant and a captain were talkinga t a table with their legs up the Sergeant was cleaning his 16’.
“excuse me sir?” They both looked at me I saluted “I was supposed to report to this tent to receive weaponry and rank.” They looked at each other played quicm game of rock paper scissors shoot the captain lost. He flipped his leg off the table and opened a notebook.
“Capreo, David?”
“yes Sir.” He wrote some things down then called me over. A skinny looking private ran over with a new camo jacket it had a yellow stripe on the side my name and an ADVIF on the breat pocket. I exchanged them. I was tolf to report to charlie tent for weaponry. It went by slowly there were guys ligning up. I eventually got out after taking off my shirt because of the astounding heat. I ha dbeen given a 16 and a pistol nothing special 3 grensdes and a purse with two cartridges in it. The gun wasn’t loaded. I waled tent by tent they told which company thry were on the sie when I got to one it said 125 ADVIF. I walked in there were five guys sitting around oje more cot left it had a bottle a bag and some playboys on it. A private stood up and took the stuff off. I gave him a look. I threw my stuff down. One of the guys left and walked over to a different bunch of tents thye read CHARCPINF I was good with the writing it mean Charlie Company Infantry. I had jus opened my bag when Duncan I mean Hughes walkedin “Its Capreo!” he walked up and gavce me a slap on the back. One of the guys lay back he had a corporal stripe too “Gonna have some sex tonight?” Hughes looked at him again “Say that again douchebag?” “I said you gonna go micheal on me and my buds here with this stud?” the corporal sat up his tag read Corman. Hughes laughed and raised his sixteen the clip was loaded he unlocked the safety “Shit man what are you doin?” a private had stood up he had red hair and freckles wasn’t very big maybe six feet. “just riddin the world of another douchebag.” Corman raised his hand and dropped it ina downward motion. “Cool it Craig this gay wipe doesn’t have the guts” “ya think so?” I couldn’t look I knew the guy was crazy I heard the m-16 fire I sat there there my pfaceburied in my pillow. I heard punching I sat up Corman was punching the shit out of hughes the private Craig that was it had fired a shot at the ground. I smiled good thinking” he saluted.
We met out captainhis name was Ricky. Ricky Prell. He was tall 6’7 I think stood out like a sore thumb. He had soft eyes he liked ot joke a lot he carried a massive 60’ which I was personally scared of. The days went by slowly I learned all of the guys in the squads names. Me, Craig, Corman, Hughes, Johnson, Donavon, and Reese. Plus sometimes Prell would stay with us. About a wekk went by we were sitting around playing cards Prell was over at hq he said he was being de-moted to leautenant because of his mistake. I wondered what his mistake was I asked him? All he said was “why you think we got 3 new guys?” it made me shutter I could tell he was sad I asked Corman. He told me “We were patrolling near Kam Ty got stuck between two companies of VC we were getting hit hard. Prell called in the choppers with a phosphoroues bomb we need a green smoke flare Prell threw one but it didn’t go far enough the two guys got up to throw it farther but the biggies were too close they were hit with it” I threw up that night.
We were sitting around playing cards at pinic tables when we were hit I ddint know what happened next thing I knew I was on the ground we were said to have been hit by mortars tents blew apart USMC ran in with heavy guns firing out of the camp a mortar landed near me I dove I felt the sting but I was fine I ran rabbed my 60’ I was going crazy I fired toward the the area the mortars were coming from two companmies went out one returend they had gotten into a firefight lost a whole company. I heard the NVA was bring battalion sized units down one day we were being moved north the whole camp. We were traveling by truck I had packed up the was loading stuff on the truck. The mortar attack still shook me. I had a headache.
Riding on the truckes wasn’t bad shaky though.
The ground was red It ws hard to breathe I could see blood above my eyes what ahd a happened I heard 16’s firing of numerousl there was a fire fight what happned I turned to see my leg was under the ruck but I felt no pain my 16 lay about a yard away I reached for it a USMC body laned on it a bullet in his neck he was gasping righting then fell I thre up where I was. Got tired and lay in it. Disgusting. I felt arms grabbing at me two USMC were hauling me up I crashed on the weight of one leg they loaded me up into a medivac. I was choppered to chu lai in I saw bpdy bags all over. I threw up again on the floor of the chopper. We landed back in Chu Lai I hobbled over to to the medical tent with crutches that were given to me.
“didn’t think it would be that fast” the captain I had met earlier was standing by my med bed he looked at my profile.. “broken knee not bad”
I nodded. “What happened?” I asked.
“you were on a transit to Tam Ky in trucks there were mines and claymores on the road, they were set off then an NVA battalion ambushed you. Choppers were called in we lost quite a bit of men”
“what about my company?”
“Omega companys truck were bown up none survived.”
“Except me.”
“And Me.”
I looked over Hughes was sitting in a bed three beds down he smiled his leg was missing. “that’s it? Craig, Corman, Prell, Johnson, Donavan, Reese?” The captain looked at me ad shook my head. We had a funeral for them where the tent was they were all promoted a rank. It was only two weeks here in vietnam I didn’t even know what happened it was so fast. I hated myself half of me told myself atleast it wasn’t you and the other half said theyre dead how can you think that? I looked through their bags I found a letter of of Prells it was to his wife she lived in Brooklyn so did i. I opened it and read it. It was about how namw as fine hed be alrihgt how he loved her I he only had amonth left. I looked at the date and cried if we had survived three days in Tam Ky he woulda gone home. I found pictures of him and his wife his two kids.
We got onto a comericla plane in Hong Kong we passed some other guys headed towards nam hey were ready they talked to themselves about kickign Cong ass. I shook my head one saw me they walked over. We were sitting in the airport lobby. “you from nam’?” one asked “yeah”
“how long?” “5 months” I lied I wanted them to get the picture “why you dead back?” “ hit bymortars roadside truck landed on my leg.”
“you kill any congs?” I stopped answering “don’t leave without me” Hughes rolled his wheelchair over his one leg seemed so insignifigant the guys looked at him. Their flight was called they said no more about nam and killing congs I was glad for that.
He headed to New York I got off Highes was headed back to Boston I waved goodbye as he got into a cab. I walked to the address on the letter and rung the doorbell “Ricky!” a woman opened the door I saluted her she stood there. Eyes began to water I handed her the letter. His uniform and his bag she stood in the doorway “im sorry mrs. Prell” “Not yet” she said crying “I wasn’t mrs. Prell yet” I was sad I could tell i was crying too “would you like some tea?” I nodded and walked into her house he kids happily watched a TV show she sat down at the kitchen table poured me some tea. Chamomile. “please tell me” I told her about our patrols our lives in nam’ I made it seem forever. I didn’t mention I was only there for two weeks it would be horribly embarrising. She just kept nodding until I was done her tears dropped into her tea as he drank I felt for her “you have family?” she asked I shook my head. It was true my parent died in a car accident I was a single child I lived with my grandmother who died when I turned 18 I joined the army. She smiled at me I didn’t know why or what happened. I had only met her. Only talked to her on bad terms. Only knew her for 15 minutes. But our lips met it was the longest and strangest moment I ever felt. We kissed.
