A Soldier Writes His Mother
about Donut Dollies
~Qui Nhon Jan 1971


Letter by Paul Kopsick

Paul Kopsick didn't go to his LZ assignment and finished his 12-month tour without major incident. The DD visit was in mid-January 1971 at the headquarters of Battery "B", 4th 60th Artillery AW SP (Dusters and Quads), Artillery Hill, Pleiku, RVN.

Webmaster's editorial note: It sounds to me from reading Paul's letter and knowing that he didn't go to the LZ even though he was waiting for transport during the Donut Dolly visit, but was assigned a less dangerous job, that this game playing skill may have gotten him off the LZ and that could have saved his life.

Welcome Home, Paul!
