I have been trying to find someone who remembers a Hispanic SSG that joined M Company in March of 1969.  He was on his second tour having previuosly served with the 1st Infantry Division.  He joined 2nd Platoon at Long Bihn after they were almost wiped out in March 1969.  I can't remember his name but he had the nicknames of "Rome Plow" and "Poncho Villa."  Anyone who remembers him please send me his name and where he might be today (if possible).

Sgt Wright,  you may be referring to SSG Cruz.  He was from Puerto Rico, I believe. His picture can be seen several times in the photo gallary of 1969 wearing his "trade mark" red bandana.  I recall reading in ThunderRun magazine that a "cruz" from  M Company had passed on, however the dates of service were wrong and so was the MOS. I assumed it was not our Rome Plow. SSG Cruz was in 2nd Platoon.  I do not recall his first name.
