In '68 and '69, my uncle, Richard “Rick” Collins, served with the 25th Infantry (Wolfhounds) Division in South Vietnam. Rick was stationed about one hour outside of Saigon in an area known as the “Iron Triangle.” During ’68 and ’69 this area was considered to be one of the most dangerous places in all of Vietnam. This particular region was where the North Vietnamese Army was crossing over into South Vietnam with supplies that they had brought down through Laos and Cambodia via the Ho Chi Minh trail. On February 2, 1969, Rick's life changed forever.
