Here is a view across the bay from Oscar 41,
a rare sight for those of us who worked all night.
This picture is of the old bunker at Oscar 41 before
they built a new one out of MD3 matting.

It got cold at night!
There were two ways to warm up:
Drink strong coffee...

We had a sniper who would take pot shots at us from time to time. I do not know who Stalion was after, but after that night---no more sniping.

If you look where the skids of the chopper should be you will see hot streams of casings being ejected---that's how hot they were!

His head is raised slightly,
 so I guess he's okay.
