Paul W. Quick, III, and I hooked-up in Las Pulgas, Staging Battalion wherein neither one of us had a camera. I learned of his death via the Stars & Stripes, while training for combat with a Q-4 Counter Mortar Radar set out side of DaNang at a place called 1st Motors. It was approximately seven miles to Hill 55 from there. Paul and I pulled liberty together in Okinawa before we were split up. Paul was a hell of a good Marine. Semper Fi, Bobby D. Townsend.
