"The Black Scarf Battalion"

by SSG Richard Graley, 4th Platoon, C Company

Originally published in the "American Traveler" the newspaper of the 1st Infantry Division in Vietnam on March 25, 1967.  The author is Staff Sergeant Richard Graley, Weapons Platoon Leader of Company C, 1st Battalion, 2d Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, Phouc Vinh, RVN.  During 1966 & 1967 SSG Graley fought many battles with his Black Scarves and knows well of what he speaks.  On many occasions I was personally thankful, as were many others, for the close and accurate support his mortars provided.
