Photos And Information From Ken Colucci
My name is Kenneth Colucci.  I was with HHD 71st Transportation Battalion from July 1967 to July 1968.  Some of my responsibilities included OIC Camelot security, civilian labor officer, operations and training officer,  
intelligence officer and a few more just to make sure I always had something to do.
