the kauffman family


From June to December 1967, I was at the 4th Division Infantry Headquarters outside Pleiku.

The band played for any military ceremonies and went out to entertain both the mainstream Vietnamese and the Montagnards highland people while the medics treated them.

When not playing, which was the majority of the time. we filled sand bags and drove vehicles during the day and pulled guard duty at night, mainly in the high towers.
