Look out when you Google your own name.
There is no telling what you might find.
I was indeed the commanding officer of the 104th for a
short time. There was a shortage of captains and I was the
senior Lt so I got the job. It was only a few weeks, not the
July 71 to Oct 71 as listed. I was home before Oct 71. I
will look through my photos and see if I have anything of
the 104th. I am pretty sure I have the unofficial patch
from that time. Will scan and email what I find.
Thanks for the website. We were attached to the 69th Eng
Bn. I have searched for it but come up empty.
