Lt Michael O'Keefe
I arrived in country in June 1967 as an Armor branch officer and was assigned as XO, HHC 3d Bde, 25th Infantry (which we all know became 4th Infantry on 1Aug67). Anyway, about a month later, my RA commission came through in Field Artillery, about which I know less than squat. That was about the time the new D companies were formed in the 1/35, 2/35, and 1/14. Apparently, DA forgot to send FOs with them, so I got assigned initially to "A" Battery to be the FO for C/1/35. On my first assault with them, we landed in a mine field, the details of which I am hoping the 174th AHC can provide.
