300 Pound Gorilla

That's what Dick called these photos when he mailed them to me. Well, I guess it's nearly a 300 Pound gorilla if you add his weight in both photos together and make him look a little meaner.

Dick says that the left photo was taken on July 28, 1952. I'll add that it was taken pretty far from the MLR but that, three days later, he would be engaged in the battalion assault to retake Outpost Kelly where he was wounded again.

The right photo is dated 1952. Maybe Dick can tell us exactly when and where 'twas, if he can remember after nearly fifty years.

Dick and I seem to have a lot in common besides Kelly - for instance, he seems to be a smoker or, at least, he was in 1952.
