of the events surrounding
June 2, 1969
There were several discrepancies in the Battalion daily journal as to what I observed and heard.
I was sitting by the three radios being used by the C.P. when the transmissions regarding the above items 1 and 2 took place. I personally observed Captain Hottell speaking on the radio and heard him identify the canister of gas as being nerve gas. I provided the instrument from my field surgical kit with which they were able to remove the dirt from under the dead soldier's fingernails.
At the time of the discovery, with a naive outlook of a young man who had just turned 20, I assumed that the tank of gas belonged to the NVA. Today, with a little more life experience under my belt and looking at the physical evidence of the other items in the bunkers, I have come to a different conclusion:
