I remember the morning of the crash.  Everyone was instantly awake and I heard every M16 bolt go forward at the same time.  By the time we got the real word on what happened it was getting pretty light so they sent us out to the foxholes to wait it out.

I was in a foxhole with Eric Linzmeyer and we were listening to the sounds of cooking ammo flying somewhere overhead. 

As far as the burned private, I have no idea.  I don't even remember hearing about it.

Good luck!

As far as an individual who pulled them out, I have no idea. Ken is on Facebook...let me get back to you with the correct spelling of his last name. Give me 10 minutes.

Yep, I was the PT officer for Savage troop.  CPT Jay Smith allowed me to attend the Master Fitness Trainer Course and I used the troop as my test subjects.   :-)
