In the morning, when it 's
clear, and the sun hasn't yet
begun to beat down with a fero-
city that drives everything un-
derground by midday, you can
see for miles. To the n o r t h-
west there is "Rocket Ridge", a
launching site just inside the
DMZ where th North Vietnam-
ese fire the 122 mm rockets that
come whistling through t h e
night, smashing through layers
of sandbags and huge wooden
beams.
One rocket killed 30 GI's and
wounded 32 others huddled in-
side the bunkers May 21. To the
west is Firebase Fuller, which
was captured several weks ago
by 1200 North Vietnamese, de-
spite the pounding of our sharp-
nosed cobra gunships and de-
vastating B-52 strikes and dead-
ly artillery bombardment. Day
after day the GI's sit and wait
for the rockets to start coming
again.
Asked how long his unit would
stay at the sight, Captain Mar-
tinez, a career officer who is the
battery commanderreplied.a"Wt
ace here indefinitely. As far as
I know there are no plans to
pull us out of here in the near
future."
Like any company grade of-
ficer at this stage of the war,
Captain Martinez is in an un-
comfortable spot, with pressure
from above to maintain s o me
semblance of a military unit,
and rumblings from below about
the uselessness of th effort. As
"Rat Man", a long haired, bead-
ed veteran with only a month
left complained. "We're j u s t
sitting here and letting Charlie
shoot at us. We're sitting ducks,

just like a shooting gallery.
We've only fired two rounds in
the last three days."
Morale has not been the only
problem at Charlie 2 since the
Vietnamese troops took control
of the firebase. Vietnamese
soldiers are rigorously excluded
from the American compound
to prevent thefts from GI's. and
at the same time, Americans
must be kept away from the
Vietnamese, who are their pri-
mary suppliers of drugs. "How
do we get the stuff," chuckled
Hollywood,-"just go over to the
fence and rap with a soldier
with the Army of the Republic
of Vietnam (ARVN). It he's got
it you can make a purchase."
Apparently, tactical differ-
ences of opinion btween Amer-
ican and Vietnamese command-
ers have also been unresolvable.
The Americans, now at t h e
southwest edge of th hill, were
asked to move their guns to
the unprotected crown, so that
the Vietnamese infantry would
have a smaller perimeter to de-
fend from ground attack. Mar-
lines, feeling that the location
could rnot provide sufficient pro-
tection for his men or equip-
mnent. refus d.
As a result., Lt Col. Toan.
regimental operations officer for
the Vietnamese unit, has begun
rebuilding the ARVN perimeter
to exclude the Alpha Battery
position. AIrD icans will be ex-
pected to maintain their own
defenses with some reinforce-
ment from the ARVN battalion
in the case of a serious ground
attack.
To the troops. exclusion from
the ARVN perimeter is o n e
more indication of their status
as forgotten men. They have
seen it before, and recognize the
signs. At the Laos border, dur-
ing the invasion, one section of
the battery saw its gun destroy-
ed by a North Vietnamese rock-
et, along with M-16's, helmets.
flak jackets, and personal cloth-
ing. One GI reported, "So there
we were at the Laos border,
nothing to do and nothing to
defend ourselves with. It took

'em ten days to decide to pull us
out." -
Many of the U.S. troops in
supporting roles at the DMZ
feel that with the area nom-
inally under ARVN control, the
remaining GIs coulld be left
there indefinitely and forgot-
ten, ass long as their casualties
are kept reasonably low.
In fact, the process may al-
ready have started. Stoll, in-
formation officer for the 1/5,
could not recall what American
unit remains at Charlie 2, how
many GI's there are, or even
their function. A general who
visited the firebase following the
1 5 pullout is reported to have
looked at the large contingent
of Americans and, remarked,
"You're not even suppOsed to be
here."
The reaction of one GI is not
surprising. "I feel like I've beeln
left out here to die- and I
don't want to die. I want to go
home."
