When Our Duece and Half
Found a Road Mine on Route 9
That the Marines Could Not Find
By Al Iannacone

On January 28, 1968, we were in a convoy on the way to JJ Carroll when we hit a mine. I was in the deuce and 1/2 with SPC McFarland. The road already had been checked by the Marines. Five vehicles, including two flat beds had gone ahead of us without incident. Just our luck - we found the mine! Thank God no injuries, but certainly a good scare and something I remember well!
