20 May 1970

20 May 1970
(from diary)

I’ve fallen from the good grace of the viets.  For two meals now I have not been invited to eat with them.  I cannot say I’m upset!

This company got four kills last night - which puts us ahead of our goal of one kill per day.  The skipper has offered an award of R and R to each man who kills four gooks in one month!

Each squad that kills 12 gooks in a month will get a free R and R!  I’m concerned about this.  Perhaps it’s all very innocent competitiveness - but perhaps not.

Seems as though we’ll be on this hill for some time yet.
