LZ Margo and the DMZ (continued)

Good Fences, Bad Neighbors

‚Äč

Deep in the DMZ on October 7, 1968, Lt. Tom Domogala, commander of Golf Company's First Platoon, requested a fence of mortar fire in this handwritten note, sent by runner to Lt. Alan Green of the 81mm Mortar Platoon.

Requesting a fence of mortar fire, 1stLt Tom Domogala, commander of Golf Company's First Platoon, sent a hand-written note by runner to 1stLt Alan Green, who led the 81mm Mortar Platoon. Radio messages were never safe and revealing his coordinates and fire requests this way insured no one could listen in. Plus, it gave him an opportunity to write a really funny note.

A map on the next page shows how he wanted to bracket his position with 81mm mortar rounds for protection.
