Book Cover

The following narrative consists of my military service that may serve as a basis for a better understanding to former military members of Bandido Charlie Company. I feel that to know who I was during our time together, the Bandidos may appreciate background information of my military career and how it involved the men while we were all in Bandido Charlie. As First Sergeant of Bandido Charlie Company, and even though we did not know each other at a personal level, I always held the men of Charlie Company in high esteem. $12.95

Old G. I. s and Sleeping Dragons, by Sgt. Doug Francescon     preface   Posted 9/11/04 -

Doug Francescon was a Section
Leader in G Battery, 29th
Artillery. His unit was attached
to F Company, 2nd Battalion,
5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Div.
In bloody fighting on July 4th, 1967
their position was overrun by
elements of the NVA. Both sides
suffered tremendous losses. Doug
was wounded and all of the members  of his section were killed includinghis best friend, Waylen Powell.

 

There is a veneer between civilization and the jungle that is very thin. The human soul put it there, and it is the only thing that makes life, as we know it, possible. Without the protection of this thin shield there is no kindness, understanding, compassion, or love.
