Ron Romancik was a fellow SOG Medic at FOB 1. The photos are his and all rights are reserved. You can read about my friend Ron in my book, as the commander of the "rat patrol" as well as the account of his daring "one man bright light" mission. In addition to his other talents, he has done a wonderful job depicting life as a SOG warrior in 1968 Vietnam. His photos  paint a wonderful collage of the country and the people that we fought to defend from Communist oppresion. Thanks Ron, for your service and the use of your photos.
