On November 6 1967 I was fortunate to be sent to Vietnam ! My name is Rick Guidi and I would like to share with you my year in Vietnam with the help of Dick Coogan “Webmaster of the 15 Engineers” we have set up this Web Page so that others may remember places, names, and dates from November 1967 thru November 1968.

    I was assigned to “B” Battery 1/84 Artillery 9th Infantry Division, this battery consisted of 6 155 Howitzers towed. Roughly the first month I was on the Guns, then I became the Battery Commanders jeep driver. I was in a better situation than on the Guns for taking pictures and writing letters home with dates. It has been 34 years since this experience took place, so if you find errors or something to add please contact me. I would like to point out as the pictures were taken, and as we moved to different places the battery was supporting battles the different Infantry groups were fighting.
