RICK WIEGAND COOKING FOR THE VILLAGE KIDS

RICK IS AT A LOCAL SCHOOL COOKING FOR THE LOCAL VIETNAMESE KIDS AT A SCHOOL. THE MARINES WERE TOLD BY THE KIDS THE SCHOOL WOULD BE BLOWN UP DURING THE NATIONAL ELECTIONS. THE MARINES AMBUSHED THE NVA AND THAT ACTION RESULTED IN RICK'S VIETNAMESE CROSS OF GALLANTRY. RICK WAS WITH CAP 2-3-4 DURING 1969. CAP 2-3-4 WAS THE REDESIGNATION FOR THE OLD CAP DELTA 4.
