The 500,000th 105mm round fired in combat
B/2/9 holds the distinction of firing the "1/2 Millionth" round in Vietnam. Looks like they chose a Willy Peter round. Good choice. Photo by Terry Stuber; contributed by J. William Ward. That "broken wrench" was the latest technology in setting a time fuze. The benchmark round was fired from LZ Uptight.
